This document provides the framework of requirements for text conversation with real time character-by-character interactive flow over the IP network using the Session Initiation Protocol. The requirements for general real-time text-over-IP telephony, point-to point and conference calls, transcoding, relay services, user mobility, interworking between text-over-IP telephony and existing text-telephony, and some special features including instant messaging have been described.
