Modified: for 4.2.1

 

 

This object is the logical port on which SBC sends and listens for Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) call signaling packets.

Each signaling port within an Address Context must use a unique IP address.

Sonus recommends using the highest TLS version supported by both the SBC and the peer equipment.

If a zone's sipSigPort is configured for transportProtocolsAllowedsip-tls-tcp, SBC increments the configured portNumber by 1 and uses it as the new port number for SIP over TLS signaling. SBC then opens a TCP socket for SIP over TLS for the new TCP port number.

Example: When sipSigPort is configured with a portNumber of 5060 and transportProtocolsAllowed = sip-tls-tcp, SBC listens on TCP port 5061 for SIP over TLS.

The SBC 52x0 and SBC 7000 systems are enhanced in 4.2.0 release to ease some restrictions on which IP Interfaces may coexist in an IP Interface Group. The user may now create IP Interface Groups containing sets of IP interfaces that are not "processor friendly" (i.e. carried on physical Ethernet ports served by separate processors). However, restrictions exist regarding the usage of such Interface Groups.

For complete details, see Configuring IP Interface Groups and Interfaces.

The above enhancement does not apply to the SBC 51x0 systems which have only two physical media ports. IP interfaces from the two physical ports may be configured within the same IP Interface Groups without restriction.

To View Sip Sig Port

On SBC main screen, go to Configuration > System Provisioning > Category: Base Provisioning > Signaling Ports > Sip Sig Port. The Sip Sig Port window is displayed.

Parameter


Description

Index

A unique profile identifier.

Mode

The operational state of the SIP Sig Port:

  • outofService
  • inService (default)

State

The administrative state of the SIP Signaling Port.

  • disabled (default)
  • enabled

IP Interface
Group Name

Select from the drop-down list.

IP Address V4

Specifies the V4 IP address in dotted decimal form (for example 10.11.12.0 24).

IP Address V6

Specifies the V6 IP address in hexadecimal/colon form (for example, fd00:21:445:128::7880 64).

Port Number

UDP/TCP port number of SIP Signaling Port (default is 5060).

Recorder

Administrative state of the SIP Signaling Recorder Port. The values are:

  • disabled (default)
  • enabled
Siprec

Specifies the administrative state of the SIP Signaling Recorder Port. Enable flag to use the port for recording using Siprec Protocol. The options are:

  • disabled (default)
  • enabled

TCP Connect
Timeout

This object indicates the maximum time, in seconds, allowed for SBC 5000 series to establish an outbound TCP connection.

DSCP Value

DSCP value (0-63) for packets from this SIP Signaling Port.

TLS Profile
Name

The name assigned to this Transport Layer Security (TLS) profile. Must be 1 - 23 characters.

Transport Protocols Allowed

The transport protocols allowed on this signaling port as follows:

  • sip-udp
  • sip-tcp
  • sip-tls-tcp
  • sip-sctp

Sctp Profile
Name

Specifies the name of the SCTP profile used for this Sip Signaling Port.

Tcp Keepalive TimerSpecifies the number of seconds a TCP connection remains idle before TCP Keep-alive probes are sent out. A value of "0" disables this parameter. The value ranges from 60 to 7200 seconds and the default value is 0. 
Tcp Keepalive IntervalSpecifies the number of seconds between TCP Keep-alive probes. The value ranges from 60 to 120 seconds and the default value is 60. 
Tcp Keepalive ProbesSpecifies the maximum number of TCP Keep-alive probes to send until SBC decides that the connection is broken. The value ranges from 1 to 20 and the default value is 2. 
Mask Portfor RCB

This flag is used to fetch the RCB value for a user, When this flag is enabled, the RCB value is fetched using only the source IP address and not the source port for generating the hashKey. The options are:

  • disabled (default)
  • enabled
Mask Ip Addressfor RCB

This flag is used to fetch the RCB value for a user, When this flag is enabled, the RCB value is fetched using only the usingsource port and not the source IP address for generating hashKey. The options are:

  • disabled (default)
  • enabled
