Technical description for port 5060:

The default gateway commonly associated with the SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is the system port 5060. This communication portal supports the signaling protocol which is widely deployed for setting up (including tearing down) of sessions involving multimedia communication like video calls, voice calls and even VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). These links are mostly deployed over broadband Internet connections.
Aside from the things previously mentioned, the communication port 5060 is also a feasible transport for the execution of streaming media, video conferencing, online gaming and instant messaging applications. The protocol running on this port is utilized for the creation, modification and termination of two-party multicast or unicast sessions. These sessions normally cater to various media streams.
The port 5060 serves as the gateway for the deleting, adding and inviting of participants for media streaming. This port can be involved in the changing of ports or addresses.
Henning Schulzrinne of Columbia University is responsible for the original design implementation of SIP sometime in 1996.
