The PHONECTL protocol allows remote control of an IP phone as an alternative to human keying. For example, a Palm sized computer could provide speed dialing and call screening for an embedded SIP ether- phone over infrared. PHONECTL is designed to be simple to fit inside a PDA and embedded phone; intermittent connection capable (i.e. optional for any part of the call); more secure, where plain-text passwords need not be shared with the phone.
