Phonism pitches their cloud-based IP phone auto-provisioning service targeting service providers. It aims to make provisioning easier as well as monitor endpoints. However, RFC 6011 User Agent Configuration aims to make auto-provisioning of SIP endpoints easy as well. So easy in fact, that the goal would be you could buy a SIP phone from Amazon.com, take it home and then enter a number on the keypad to automatically provision the phone with the cloud-based provider of choice. Each cloud provider will have a unique range of numbers that they own. Mark Robins from SIP Forum and I actually discussed this a few hours ago. Seems to me that Phonism will have a short shelf-life. Won't be voting for them in about 30 minutes.
