When disabled, the SBC does not create a new P-Charging-Vector header. Creating P-Charging-Vector headers is supported in INVITE and REGISTER messages. It is also supported in SUBSCRIBE, OPTIONS, and NOTIFY messages when received from the same direction as the REGISTER message.

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Create Path Header

 Controls whether the SBC creates a Path header in outgoing SIP REGISTER messages. When enabled, the SBC creates a new Path header in the outgoing message. When disabled, the SBC does not create a new Path header.

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Create Service Route Header

 Controls whether the SBC creates a Service-Route header in outgoing SIP messages. When enabled, the SBC creates a new Service- Route header in the outgoing message. When disabled, the SBC does not create a new Service-Route header.

 

Note

When No Service Route Hdr For Emergency Registration flag is enabled, SBC does not add Service-Route headers for emergency registrations even if Add Path Service Route and Create Service Route Header flags are enabled.

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Customized Session Timer BehaviorSpecifies the session timer behavior expected by the remote peer. When enabled, the remote peer expects customer-specific session timer behavior. When disabled, the remote peer expects the standard session timer behavior.
The options are:
  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Disable Also Header

Specifies whether to use the Also header. When enabled, the SBC ignores the Also header if received from the remote peer and the SBC does not send the Also header to the remote peer. When disabled, the SBC uses the Also header for call forwarding as usual.
 

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Disable Host Translation

To enable/disable host name translation is disabled. This applies to all URL style headers that require transparency and defines the processing that SBC is to apply to the host name portion of these headers before forwarding.

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Disable Media Lock Down

If SBC offers both pass-thru and transcode codecs, the Minimize Relaying Of Media Changes From Other Call Leg flag effectively suppresses the re-INVITEs to peers when the peer answers with a single codec. However, if the peer has multiple codecs, The Minimize Relaying Of Media Changes From Other Call Leg flag in certain situations can not suppress the re-INVITEs as change in one of the common codecs is detected. In these situations, if the SBC’s most preferred codec matches the peers most preferred codec, the Disable Media Lock Down flag can be used to suppress this Modify Offer. The Disable Media Lock down flag controls the modify offer initiated by SBC to lock down the codec. If this flag is disabled, SBC sends a modify offer to lockdown the codec, if enabled, SBC will not initiate modify offer to lock down the codec. Refer to the Examples below. 

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Disable Refer To Uri Parameters

By default, parameters in the SIP URI Refer-To header are passed through to the outgoing INVITE. When enabled, this function is Disabled. When disabled, the URI parameters are copied to the Refer To field in the outgoing INVITE.
 

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Discard Received Reason Header

Specifies whether to use the cause code in the Reason header received from the remote peer. When enabled, the SBC ignores the cause code in the received Reason header. When disabled, the SBC uses the cause code in the received Reason header.

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Do not Include Ss Attribute In Re Invite

Specifies whether the SBC sends silence suppression to the remote peer. When enabled, the SBC does not send silence suppression (no a=silenceSupp is sent) in the SDP to the remote peer. When disabled, and when silence suppression is off, the SBC sends a=silenceSupp:off in the SDP to the remote peer. Note that a=silenceSupp:on is never sent to the remote peer in the Sonus implementation when silence suppression is on.
 

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Enable Default PUIProcedures

Specifies whether to enable the Default PUI Procedure flag or not.

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Enable Dial String Handling

This flag is primarily used to enable/disable transparency of dial string (i.e username) received in request URI of INVITE message. Transparency does not occur, however, if PSX/ERE returns globalized or non-private called address. SBC performs dial string identification based on RFC 4967.

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
End To End Bye

Controls whether the SBC will issue an end-to-end BYE on the side initiating the disconnect, depending on the receipt of a BYE from the other leg. When enabled, for SIP-SIP calls the SBC does not issue the 200 BYE on the side initiating the disconnect until the 200 BYE is received from the other leg. When disabled, for SIP-SIP calls the SBC issues the 200 BYE on the side initiating the disconnect regardless of whether a 200 BYE is received from the other leg.

Note that a=silenceSupp on is never sent to the remote peer in the Sonus implementation when Silence Suppression is ON.
 

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Include Transport Type In Contact Header

This flag is used by an SBC configured for an external PSX.

When this flag is enabled, the SBC includes the Transport Type parameter in the Contact headers of 3XX responses. The PSX sends the value of this flag in a DIAMETER response to the SBC.

When this flag is disabled, the SBC does not include the Transport Type parameter.

  • Disable (default)
  • Enable

NOTE: Ensure passcompletecontactHeader flag is disabled (except for the REGISTER method) to obtain the desired behavior.

Insert Peer Address As Top Route Header

When enabled, the SBC SIPE inserts the IP address of the next hop in the top route header of the egress INVITE. This is required when the SBC is acting as a IMS BGCF proxy. It is also used to support SIPconnect compliance for direct inward dialing.
 

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Map Cause Location

Specifies whether to enable the Map Cause Location flag or not.
 

The options are:

  • Enable

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Minimize Relaying Of Media Changes From Other Call Leg All

The advertised Sonus SIP SDP is described as a set of capabilities that the SBC can receive. The SBC by default issues a Modify Offer ( re-INVITE, UPDATE) whenever it detects a change in receive capabilities. In certain scenarios, the Modify Offer can be perceived as redundant. Enabling Minimize Relaying Of Media Changes From Other Call Leg All flag suppresses redundant Modify offers being sent from the SBC.

When enabled, the SBC suppresses modify offers that have no changes to the “common codecs” that impact the end-user experience. “Common codecs” are codecs that exist both in the initial offer and answer. Changes to common codecs imply changes to DTMF, packetization time, codec specific FMTP attributes and data-path-mode. Refer to the Examples below.

The options are:

  • Enable

  • Disable (default)

No Content Disposition

Specifies the Content Disposition header format in SIP messages expected by the remote peer. When enabled, the remote peer expects no Content Disposition header. When disabled, the remote peer expects the standard SIP message format, which includes the Content Disposition header.

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
No Port Number5060

This parameter is used by the SBC to control whether port number 5060 is sent to the remote peer in the Request-URI of PRACK, ACK, and BYE messages.  When enabled, the outgoing SIP URI does not include the port number 5060 (sip:user@host). In addition, the SBC only sends out the Record-Route and Route headers of SIP request and response messages with the port number it receives, such that if the SBC does not receive a port number in Record- Route headers, the SBC does not send out a port number in the Record- Route and Route headers.  When disabled, the outgoing SIP URI includes the port number 5060 (sip:user@host:5060). In addition, if the SBC does not receive a port number in the Record-Route headers of SIP request and response messages, the SBC inserts port number 5060 into the outgoing Record-Route and Route headers.
 

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
No Userinfo In Contact Header

Specifies the Contact header format in SIP messages expected by the remote peer. When enabled, the remote peer expects no userinfo component in the Contact header URI. When disabled, the remote peer expects the standard format of the Contact header, which includes the userinfo component.

The options are:

  • Enable
  • Disable (default)
Only Selected Codec In Session RefreshWhen this flag is enabled, the SDP in a session keep-alive re-INVITE message will only include the currently-selected codec for the call.

->

G711U,G726,G729A

G711U

<-

Transcode G711-G726 call. Egress codec is locked down to G726

<-

G729A,G726

 

 

Receive capabilities of SBC have changed to G726 ( i.e. HRP is disabled). Since, the codec selected by SBC is different from Peer’s preferred codec (G729), though the flag DML is enabled SBC sends a Modify Offer to lockdown to G726.

Call Flow Examples for 'Minimize relaying of Media Changes From Other Call Leg All' Flag

Example1:

The re-INVITEs (in green) are suppressed if the Minimize Relaying Of Media Changes From Other Call Leg flag is enabled.

->

SBC offers G711U as pass-through codec and G729A as a transcode option by reserving a DSP channel

->

G711U,G729A

G711U

<-

SBC releases the DSP channel resulting in a G711U pass-thru call

<-

G711U

 

 

Receive capabilities of SBC have changed as a codec G729A was removed; send Modify Offer to Peer to advertise the latest set of capabilities

->

G711U

 

 

 

<-

G711U

Example2:

SBC suppresses a Modify Offer from the ingress peer. The offer changes the maxptime from 10 to 20ms. An increase in maxptime can be suppressed – a device that advertises a maxptime of 20ms can also receive 10ms packets.

Example3:

A change of data-path-mode from sendrecv to sendonly ( HOLD request) can also be suppressable. The rational is that SBC can always ignore the media received from the peer and continue to send it media.
