For reference, please see the following wiki pages:

* [res_sip Design|https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/res_sip+design]

In the current incarnation of  {{res_sip}} and {{chan_gulp}}, there is no endpoint identification. There is a {{res_sip_endpoint_identifier_constant}}, but it does basically what the name implies - it returns the same endpoint for all requests.

So, we need an endpoint identifier. This resource module should implement the function callbacks for endpoint identification as documented on the [res_sip Design|https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/res_sip+design] page, register itself with {{res_sip}} (making sure, of course, that it's loaded after res_sip), and start identifying!

What does identification mean?
# You must be able to query the data access layer for endpoints and return the correct endpoint.
# The data access layer needs to be robust enough to provide endpoints from (at a minimum) a static configuration file.
# The endpoint identification should have well defined business logic that determines how it identifies an endpoint from a SIP request. This MUST be documented on the wiki.
