This informational I-D describes the requirements for SIP Telephony
devices, based on the deployment experience of large numbers of SIP
phones and PC clients using different implementations. The document
reviews the generic requirements for SIP telephony devices, the
automatic device configuration process, the device configuration data
and examples for XML configuration data formats.
SIP telephony devices are highly complex IP endpoints that speak many
Internet protocols, have text, audio and visual interfaces, various
input modes, and require functionality targeted at several
constituencies: (1) End users, (2) service providers and network
administrators and (3) manufacturers and system integrators.
The objectives of the requirements are a minimum set of
interoperability and multi-vendor supported core features, so as to
enable similar ease of purchase, installation and operation as found
for standard PCs, analog feature phones or mobile phones.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
