SBX-26140: Video Bandwidth SDP Handling Improvements and Enhanced Statistics
The following CLI changes made to implement this feature:
The description of Packet Service Profile's
videoBandwidthReductionFactor are modified to:
maxVideoBandwith: Specifies the maximum session bandwidth that can be used for a call with video streams. It Includes the bandwidth for all streams in the call (audio, video, BFCP, and so on). If "0" is the value, video calls are not allowed and only audio calls can be set up which follows the normal allocation process. The value ranges from 0 to 50000 kbps and the default value is 10 kbps.
videoBandwidthReductionFactor: Specifies the amount to reduce the session bandwidth allocation for the calls that include video streams. This does not affect the signaling, but affects only the internal allocation of bandwidth used for the calls. The value of this flag is on percentage reduction factor. For example: If the value of this flag is 20, the allocation of bandwidth for the calls is reduced by 20%. So, if the normal bandwidth allocation for calls is 1000 kbps, it gets reduced to 800 kbps.
Two new statistics,
egressSessionBandwidthkbps, are added to
callDetailStatus object to display the allocated session bandwidth on each leg.
SBX-28540: TCP Connection Cleanup When Registration Becomes Inactive

SBX-29116: Supported/Require/Allow Transparency Profile
The SIP Param Filter Profile is added in this release to allow the operator to create a profile defining a set of SIP header tags and methods to transparently pass or block, and then assign that profile to a trunk group. The SIP headers configured in this profile for pass-through are transparently passed to the Egress trunk group if received in the Ingress SIP message.
iceKeepaliveTimer is added to NAT Traversal of SIP Trunk Group to extend the existing implementation of full-ICE. This enhancement allows the SBC to inter-operate with other ICE peers which require the connecting peer to act as a full-ICE agent.
The following flags and attribute are added are added to enhance DTLS-SRTP support and allow a relay mechanism that transparently passes the DTLS, SRTP and SRTCP packets end-to-end without DTLS certification or SRTP cryptographic encryption and decryption taking place at SBC.
New DTLS flags:

- Five new CDR fields (SMM-Field-1 through SMM-Field-5) are added to log the proprietary information to the accounting records using the SMM rules:
- The SBC is enhanced to generate and send PRACK messages internally, and send the PRACK back to the IAD if an incoming 18x with 100Rel is dropped.
- The SBC is enhanced to create SMM rules to directly manipulate SDP in a more refined way.
- The ADD operation is enhanced for the user to:
- add a line to the session block
- add a line to the specific media stream
- add a parameter to the specific SDP line in either session block or media stream
- add a codec (codec name) to a specific instance of a particular media stream or all instances of that particular media stream
- add a new stream to the SDP
- The DELETE operation is enhanced for the user to:
- delete a line in the session block
- delete a line in a specific media stream
- delete a parameter from a specific SDP line
- delete a codec (codec name) in a specific instance of a particular media stream or all instances of that particular media stream
- delete a codec by the position as it appears in the "m=" line in a specific instance of a particular media stream or all instances of that particular media stream
- The GET operation is enhanced for the user to store the:
- payload type for a given codec (full codec name) in a specific instance of a particular media stream
- codec position as it appears in the "m=" line for given codec (partial codec will be supported) in a specific instance of a particular media stream
- The STORE operation is enhanced for the user to store:
- a line in the session
- a line in a specific media stream
- a parameter in a specific SDP line
- The FILTER-CODEC operation is enhanced to filter or re-arrange the codec in a particular media stream. The from operand value represents the codec pattern being applied for the filtering.
- The CONDITION EXIST criterion is enhanced to:
- use a new criterion type, sdpContent, to determine whether specific media stream contains any codec specific criterion
- use a new messageBody type, messageBody: SDP, to detemine whether the SDP content exist in the message body
SBX-32133: Quick Re-registration on Alternate SIP Server When Primary Server is Down

The registrarRecovery parameter is added to IPSP commonIpAttributes object, and includes following flags:
The SIP Trunk Group queryPsxOnNextRefreshRegister request command is added with the following options:
The SBC is enhanced to support various flavors of LI and a generic Call Data Channel (CDC) model to support any new flavors of LI.
The following parameters are added under CDC object:
SBX-33422: Metric for Simultaneous Active and Stable Sessions for an Interval of Time
The SBC is enhanced to allow a percentage of sessions beyond the purchased session license capacity to measure the maximum amount of simultaneously active and stable sessions over a configurable time interval.
callCountIntervalStatistics are added to the Global object.
A new configuration flag,
callCountTimeInterval, is added to
SBX-34194: MS Lync/Skype Remote Desktop Sharing Support on SBC
The following parameters are added to the
sipTrunkGroup to allow the SBC to support MS Lync/Skype remote desktop sharing.
The 'request alarms' command is enhanced with the following options.
- comment alarm – Add comments/notes to a specific alarm using alarm Id.
- state alarm – Set operator state of a specific alarm using alarm Id
The following statistics are added to
addressContext sipActiveRegisterNameStatus table to allow the SBC to search the registration name status based on part of the Address of Record (AOR), plus provides the ability to search the entries which are not in the statistics table but registered in the SBC application using a part of the AOR name or the entire AOR name. :
In this example, userPart is used as first parameter to retrieve the entry status that is not in the table but registered in the SBC application.
The SBC is enhanced to support Dialog Stateful variables for Out-of-Dialog SUBSCRIBE messages when advancedSMM is enabled, in addition to INVITE and REGISTER.
The SBC is enhanced to provide bandwidth Call Admission Control (CAC) per supported media type by limiting video streams to specified bandwidth limits in order to provide a level of protection from video calls consuming call bandwidth otherwise needed for audio calls. This protection is implemented on SBC Core by setting video thresholds (
bandwidthVideoThreshold) to specific limits at the zone, trunk group, endpoint and shared CAC levels. The thresholds are a percentage of the total bandwidth limit such that any traffic above this level is reserved for audio-only calls. This video threshold limit behaves the same for emergency as well as non-emergency calls. Any video calls above the video threshold limit are dropped to allow audio calls to use this bandwidth.
NOTE: Bandwidth CAC is not available for MSRP, data channels, FECC and BFCP streams.
The following status and statistics commands are added in support of this feature:
storeICID flag is added to SIP Trunk Group signaling object to allow the SBC to retain the same ICID value generated during the first egressed INVITE in the P-Charging-Vector header in an egressed INVITE. This flag is configured on the egress trunk group.
A new system status command,
softwareUpgradeDetailedStatus, is added to view the detailed upgrade log of the LSWU upgrade process including the number of steps involved, the time taken to complete the upgrade and the results of the upgrade process.

Common Flags of
IP Signaling Profile object.
The default value of
localAuth user m2mAccess flag is changed to "
enabled" for Administrator and Calea users (only) to enable SBC REST M2M access by default for these.
advertiseAudioOnly is added to SIP trunk group object to allow the SBC to send only the main audio/image stream in the SDP offer for the following LSWU scenarios:
- when a live software upgrade is performed on software versions earlier than SBC 4.0, the
advertiseAudioOnlyflag by default is enabled.
- when a live software upgrade is performed on SBC 4.0 or later, but prior to SBC 5.1 versions, by default the
advertiseAudioOnlyflag is disabled. You must manually enable the flag if required.
- when a live software upgrade is performed on SBC 5.1 or later versions, the
advertiseAudioOnlyflag value is retained.
SBX-41511: Media Policer Reservation For Worst Case Codec
By default, the SBC reserves the worst case common audio codec bandwidth on trunk groups and IP interfaces for pass-through calls, and polices for the same bandwidth. To facilitate asymmetric pass-through calls scenarios/cases and to police on the heaviest codec in the offer or answer, the PSP flag
policeOnHeaviestAudioCodec is added in this release.
SBX-44375: Make GRHA User Configurable
setHaConfig configuration is included in this release to configure SBC for Geographical Redundancy High Availability (GRHA) mode when active and standby servers are located in two different data centers to protect SBCs against data center and network failures.
