This paper describes an approach for combining Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) based voice communication with Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) based presence enhancements. The actual role of SIP and XMPP in the Internet Protocol (IP) based communication was analyzed, especially from the telecommunication carrier (Telco) point of view. The proposed infrastructure extends a typical SIP infrastructure with XMPP for presence status integration. XMPP will be used as instant messaging and presence (IM/P) service infrastructure, the presence information will be extended with SIP phone status information of telecommunication endpoints. A first prototype has been developed and tested successfully.
