Since January 2010, by release of v3.0.0, SIP Express Router (SER) and Kamailio (OpenSER) are the same application, built from same source code. The differences are in database structure used to store subscriber profiles and routing information, which is a matter of what modules are used (e.g., for authentication, user location, a.s.o.). SER refers now to this application used with modules_s/auth_db module while Kamailio is same application but with modules_k/auth_db module.

The main goals for the project are:

  • bring together the developers and user communities of these projects
  • reduce maintenance overhead
  • avoid duplicated efforts in development
  • develop a core framework that is flexible, extensible and scalable
  • promote and build a solid open source SIP server project
  • ensure business credibility
  • make future forking undesirable, this harms everybody, affects credibility and business

On  October 10, 2009, source code of SER and Kamailio was completely integrated in SIP Router GIT repository and branches were created to prepare 3.0.0 releases. On  January 11, 2010, Kamailio 3.0.0 was released.
