100% Open-Source VoIP Capture, Troubleshooting & Monitoring


What is HOMER?

HOMER is a robust, carrier-grade, scalable SIP Capture system and VoiP Monitoring Application offering HEP/EEP, IP Proto4 (IPIP) encapsulation & port mirroring/monitoring support right out of the box, ready to process & store insane amounts of signaling, logs and statistics with instant search, end-to-end analysis and drill-down capabilities for ITSPs, VoIP Providers and Trunk Suppliers using SIP signaling protocol.

Powered at the core by SIPCAPTURE Module for industry-standard Kamailio or OpenSIPS, HOMER provides virtually unlimited scope for granular capture configuration either stand-alone or using our companion Capture Agent Project.

HOMER 5 User-Interface is developed using standard Angular JS, easily extensible and with all functionality moved to specialized and customizable widgets feeding and displaying correlated data from internal and external data sources such as InfluxDB and Elasticsearch.

HOMER allows integrators and users to define granular custom logic and generate statistic from its capture dialplan interacting with other Kamailio modules to extend its functionality including fully programmable threshold triggering and alarming, providing plenty of space for tailored configurations and logic customizations.

HOMER is already used by large voice networks, voip service providers and traffic carriers worldwide, has been implemented as a service in 3rd party voice platforms and is suitable for production.

Includes a powerful and modern Web User-Interface and secure REST API

Capture Agents

Capture Agents are responsible for feeding HOMER SIP signaling, Logs, RTP/RTCP Reports, Custom Statistics and much more using the HEP (Homer Encapsulation Protocol) protocol. Our WIKI provides several useful examples to get started.
