  All of bigger installations are using FreeSwitch (http://www.freeswitch.org/) instead of Asterisk.  The README says:

NkSIP is a pure SIP framework, so it does not support any real RTP media processing it can't record a call, host an audio conference or transcode. These type of tasks should be done with a SIP media server, like Freeswitch or Asterisk.

  So, it looks like more of a replacement for OpenSIPS, which is often used a SIP load balancer, or session border controller.  

  If anything, NkSIP looks like a good component for Kazoo (http://2600hz.com/platform.html, https://github.com/2600hz/kazoo).  The Kazoo platform uses OpenSIPS and FreeSwitch, but most of the other stuff is Erlang (RabbitMQ, BigCouch, etc.).  Rather than using RabbitMQ to distribute SIP events from OpenSIPS/FreeSwitch between nodes and zones, using a SIP registrar on top of Riak seems a lot simpler.
