Document Overview

This document outlines the configuration best practices for the Ribbon SBC Core (SBC 5K, 7K, SWe) when deployed with Google Voice SIP Link. 

About Ribbon SBC Core

The SBC Core (SBC 5K, 7K, SWe) addresses the next-generation needs of SIP communications by delivering embedded media transcoding, robust security and advanced call routing in a high-performance, small form-factor device enabling service providers and enterprises to quickly and securely enhance their network by implementing services like SIP Trunking, secure Unified Communications and Voice over IP (VoIP).

The SBC Core provides a reliable, scalable platform for IP interconnect to deliver security, session control, bandwidth management, advanced media services and integrated billing/reporting tools in an SBC appliance. This versatile series of SBCs can be deployed as peering SBCs, access SBCs or enterprise SBCs (eSBCs). The SBC product family is tested for interoperability and performance against a variety of third-party products and call flow configurations in the customer networks.

Note

SBC 5x10, 5400, 7000 and SWe are represented as SBC Core in the subsequent sections.

About Google Voice

Google Voice is a telephone service that provides a U.S. phone number to Google Account customers in the U.S. and Google Works customers in Canada, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Calls are forwarded to the phone number that each user must configure in the account web portal. Users can answer and receive calls on any of the phones configured to ring in the web portal. While answering a call, the user can switch between the configured phones. Subscribers in the United States can make outgoing calls to domestic and international destinations. The service is configured and maintained by users in a web-based application, similar in style to Google's email service Gmail, or Android and iOS applications on smartphones or tablets.

Codec Entry

Codecs define the audio encoding methods and their associated attributes. You can add custom codec entries which are then available to include when configuring codecs in a Packet Service Profile. When you add a codec entry, the parameters available change, depending on the base codec you select. You can also configure options for a selected Codec Entry that specify how to handle DTMF digits in the media stream.

SIP Message Manipulation - PSTN

The SIP Adaptor Profile object is the main construct for SIP Message Manipulation (SMM) functionality. A SIP Adaptor Profile is associated with a SIP Trunk Group or Zone in order to act upon SIP messages passing into or out of that group. A SIP Trunk Group can have two SIP Adaptor Profiles, an input adaptor profile for manipulation of inbound messages, and an output adaptor profile for manipulation of outbound messages. Similarly, a Zone can have two SIP Adaptor Profiles.

SIP Message Manipulation (SMM) allows you to modify SIP messages as they are processed by the SBC Core in both inbound and outbound directions. Using SMM criteria and actions, you define SMM rules within a SIP adaptor profile, which the SBC applies to SIP messages in order to modify their headers and/or parameters. When a message comes into or out of the SBC and a SIP adaptor profile applies, the message is evaluated based on the set of criteria in the profile. If the message meets the criteria, it is modified according to actions defined in the profile.

Since a=inactive is not supported on Google Voice, the SMM PSTN_sendonly is used to modify the parameter to a=sendonly.

IP Interface Group

An IP Interface Group is a named object containing one or more IP interfaces (IP addresses). The IP Interface Group is Address Context-specific (e.g. permanently bound to a particular Address Context), and is the primary tool to manage disjointed networks (separate networks that are not designed to communicate directly). An IP Interface Group is the local manifestation of a segregated network domain. The service section of an IP trunk group and a Signaling Port typically reference an IP Interface Group in order to restrict signaling and/or media activity to that IP Interface Group.

Trunk Group

SIP Trunk Groups are used to apply a wide-ranging set of call management functions to a group of peer devices (endpoints) within the network. SIP Trunk Groups are created within a specific address context and zone.

All SBC signaling and routing (both Trunking and Access) are based upon Trunk Group configurations defined within zones. A zone can contain multiple Trunk Groups.

IP Peer

IP Peer is an entity of Session Border Controller, which is configured inside the Zone. It acts as a destination endpoint for the call to be routed. An IP Peer constitutes an IPv4/IPv6 address or a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) with a port number.

IP Static Route

This object specifies the gateway to which you wish to direct traffic from your Packet, Management, or Link Interface. In effect, this object allows you to add, change, and delete gateways (next Hops) to these interfaces. Interface and static routes combine to form the IP routing table for your network.

An IP Static Route provides a route to each potential call destination IP address. The static route is used to add static IP routes for the IP interfaces. A static route indicates the next Hop gateway and IP interface to use for a particular peer network IP prefix.

TLS Certificates

  • For TLS to work, a Trusted CA (Certificate Authority) is required. For this interop, GoDaddy is used as a Trusted CA.
  • Add an entry in the Public DNS to resolve Ribbon SBC Core FQDN to Public IP Address.
  • In the trust store of the SBC, ensure you have the following certificates as part of the root certificate trust.
    • GTS Root R1
    • GlobalSign Root CA (if required)
Note

Refer to Google Voice SIP Link documentation for other compatible CAs.

Create the certificate for Ribbon SBC with the CN containing SBC's FQDN.

Command to generate CSR on SBC
request system security pki certificate SBC_CERT_GV generateCSR csrSub /C=IN/ST=KA/L=Bangalore/O=Sonus/CN=<common_name> keySize keySize2K

After generating the CSR on Ribbon SBC, provide it to the Certificate Authority. CA would generally provide the following certificates:
	SBC Certificate
	CA's Root Certificate
	Intermediate Certificate

Upload the certificates to Ribbon SBC at /opt/sonus/external and convert them into SBC readable format using openssl
i.e. SBC certificate must be in .pem or .p12 format and root certificate in .cer or .der format

Converting .crt to .pem using openssl for SBC Certificate.
openssl x509 -in sbc_cert.crt -out sbc_cert.der -outform DER
openssl x509 -in sbc_cert.der -inform DER -out sbc_cert.pem -outform PEM

After generating sbc_cert.pem file, convert it to .p12 format using below command and provide the location of the certificate key
openssl pkcs12 -export -out sbc1_cert.p12 -in sbc_cert.pem -inkey /opt/sonus/company_san.key.temp

Converting .crt to .cer using openssl for CA's Root and Intermediate Certificates.
openssl x509 -in root_cert.crt -out root_cert.cer -outform DER

After converting all these certificates, upload them to Ribbon SBC at /opt/sonus/external location.

Add all the required certificates on SBC.

TLS Profile

This object creates and configures a profile for implementing the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol to use with SIP over TLS. TLS is an IETF protocol for securing communications across an untrusted network. Normally, SIP packets travel in plain text over TCP or UDP connections. Secure SIP is a security measure that uses TLS, the successor to the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

To add a TLS protection-level policy, create a TLS PROFILE and configure each of the parameters. The TLS profile is specified on the SIP Signaling Port and controls behavior of all TLS connections established on that signaling port.

Call Routing

Routing management allows you to manage all the configurations associated with routing calls based on the carriers' business requirements.

Routing Label

Routing label is associated with a route. Each route includes a gateway/trunk group pair. Routing labels provide the link between an entry in the Standard Route table and the set of routes associated with that Standard Route table entry.

commit

Route

Routing allows you send calls to the correct destination. You can use routing options based on your requirements. Configure the standard and specific routes (with usernames) to ensure that no matter how the called party is addressed (a number or username), the SBC routes the message to the Core. Create Route entries for standard Trunk Group routing with Matching Criteria and a Routing Label destination.

Media Encryption

Customers can choose to encrypt the media using either DTLS or SDES-SRTP based on the requirement.

Warning

Configuring both DTLS and SDES-SRTP will result in call failure. Hence, customers are advised to use only one method of Media encryption.

DTLS

The Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) protocol provides authentication, data integrity, and confidentiality for communications between two applications over an Unreliable Datagram Protocol (UDP). The Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) provides encryption, message authentication and integrity, and replay protection to the RTP data in both unicast and multicast applications. DTLS-SRTP is an extension to the DTLS protocol, where DTLS acts as the key management protocol. DTLS protocol is also extended to negotiate the SRTP crypto suites and parameters for use with those keys.

WebRTC is a signaling protocol defined for real-time communication between Web browsers. WebRTC has assigned DTLS-SRTP protocol for the media exchange between the browsers. The SBC includes the following DTLS functionality:

  • Real-time communication between the web browsers by using DTLS-SRTP while interworking with SIP networks.
  • DTLS on the media path for key management for the SRTP-based media.
  • The self-signed certificates to secure and authenticate DTLS associations. DTLS connections are secured by the two browsers sharing self-signed certificates as part of the media connection during a DTLS handshake between the browsers. The certificates are authenticated by checking a fingerprint, which is passed in the signaling path as part of the Session Description Protocol (SDP).

The SBC includes DTLS crypto suites that define a set of ciphers (algorithms used for encrypting data) which allow the selection of an appropriate level of security. When a TLS connection is established, the client and server exchange information about which cipher suites they have in common.

SDES-SRTP

SRTP is an IETF cryptographic protocol that provides secure communications over untrusted networks as described in RFC 3711. SRTP provides confidentiality, message authentication and replay protection to Internet media traffic such as audio and video. The SBC Core supports Secure RTP and its associated secure real-time transport control protocol (Secure RTCP) for IPv4/IPv6 addressing for both audio and video streams.

Ribbon SBC Core High Availability

Info

During this interop, SBC SWe was configured in HA mode with the below configuration for High Availability.

In an HA configuration, the two SBC VMs are connected to each other using the HA ports on the respective VMs. The HA logical ports must be in the same network and routable using the switch and they must be connected to a switch. Failure of the connection is via link detection and also TIPC keep-alives. 

HA Configuration

Link Detection Group

The Link Detection Group allows you to group interfaces and associated Link Monitors together and track link verification failures within the group. A Link Detection Group (LDG) is configured with a unique name and a failover threshold. The LDG tracks the number of link verification failures that have occurred among the Link Monitors configured.

Create Link Detection Groups for both pkt0 and pkt1 interfaces.

Caveats

The following items should be noted in relation to this Interop - these are either limitations, untested elements or useful information pertaining to the Interoperability.

  • Short Code calls are not supported on Google Voice clients.
  • After switchover, SBC takes around 45 seconds to establish a new socket connection with GV for sending first SIP OPTIONS over TLS. Hence, all the calls including in-dialog messages initiated from GV end during this period will be failed as GV does not initiate any new socket for TLS connection, unless a new call from PSTN is initiated towards GV over TLS.

These issues will be addressed by GV/Ribbon in their upcoming releases.
