The company wanted to add the instant messaging function to open source SIP communicator providing audio/ video data packets transmission and to add the conferencing possibility applying the instant messaging function. The challenge was to modify the Client search system built in open-source SIP server to add the ability to store information about all Clients in the distributed peer-to-peer DHT networks.
