CPL (Call Processing Language)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
The CPL (Call Processing Language) is a language that can be used to describe and control Internet telephony services. It may be implemented on network servers or user agent servers. It is meant to be simple, extensible, easily edited by graphical clients, and independent of operating system or signaling protocol. It is suitable for running on a server where users may not be allowed to execute arbitrary programs, as it has no variables, loops, or ability to run external programs. See "Voice over IP (VoIP)" for more information.
