Building a platform is a complex project
The IRIS platform has been in use for many years in Swedish Radio and we continue development of it, not only in the NXG project but also for daily use in all our radio stations. Building this, a lot of open source code has been used – both in the IRIS CCM and in the general platform. That’s how you build platforms today – you start with a set of libraries and tools, and you keep adding as the platform grows more and more complex.
We are currently going through all the licenses used by libraries in the CCM, the codec call monitor, trying to find out how they work together and which license we can use for our code that both give organisations that download it a right to use it freely as well as a right to the source code, even if they got the product through a third party. This work is complex and we’re almost there. Please have patience with us!
In addition to the core CCM we have a lot of supporting services using Open Source – the SIP servers, SIP clients and more.
During the Broadcast Radio (R)Evolution conference Olle E. Johansson presented a small set of the open source software we have used in building the platform. From the Linux operating systems to SIP implementations like BareSIP and Kamailio.
