A SOHO (Small Office or Home Office) architecture can be sketched as an architecture that involves an ITSP (Internet Telephony Service Provider) and subscribers. The ITSP offers SIP protocol based telephony and presence services for subscribers. A subscriber can have several presence capable devices that periodically publish the user presence status. The paper defines and proposes a solution to the presence interaction (PI) problem.
