	addPathServiceRoute <disable | enable> 

Command Parameters

Table : Flags (a)

ParameterDescription
acceptAlertInfo

Enable flag for the SBC to process the URI specified in the Alert-info header received in the 180 ringing message and use the tone specified in the Alert-Info header as the Local Ring Back Tone to play.

  • disable (default)
  • enable

NOTE: When this flag is enabled, the tones processed override any incoming tones in the media stream. For example, when Accept Alert-Info is enabled, the SBC plays the tone specified in the Alert-info header of 180 ringing message overriding the inband tones included in the 180 ringing message.

NOTE:  When using PSX in your network, enable the acceptAlertInfo flag from PSX's IP Signaling Profile. \

addPChargingFuncAddr

Set (enable) this flag to add the stored value of the PCFA header to a request or response.The PCFA header value is stored based on the flag.

  • disable (default)
  • enable
addPathServiceRouteEnable this flag to allow SBC acting as P-CSCF or IBCF to add two Path headers in REGISTER request towards the Core (createPathHeader must be enabled) OR allow SBC acting as IBCF to add two Service-Route headers in 200 OK response for REGISTER towards the P-CSCF (createServiceRouteHeadermust be enabled).
  • disable (default)
  • enable

NOTE: When noServiceRouteHdrForEmergencyRegistration flag is enabled, SBC does not add Service-Route headers for emergency registrations even if addPathServiceRoute and createServiceRouteHeader flags are enabled.

  • disable (default)
  • enable
clearmodeForDataCallsSet flag to enable the clearmode function for data calls.
  • disable – (default) If disabled for the SIP Egress call leg, legacy operation is signaled and payload type is assumed implicit (same on both sides). If disabled for the SIP Ingress call leg, legacy G.711 operation is accepted as well as Clearmode.
  • enable – If enabled for the SIP Egress call leg, Clearmode is sent using dynamic payload type. If enabled for SIP Ingress call leg, only Clearmode data calls are accepted.
contactTransparencyForIsFocusMediaTag

Enable flag to transparently pass Contact header for all requests and responses in outgoing message when "isFocus" parameter is received in Contact header.

  • disable (default)

  • enable

NOTE: This flag is configurable from an external PSX.

createPChargingVectorEnable flag to create a new PCharging-Vector header in outgoing message for INVITE and REGISTER messages. The PCharging-Vector header is also supported in SUBSCRIBE, OPTIONS, NOTIFY, MESSAGE, PUBLISH and REFER messages when received from same direction as REGISTER message. The P-Charging-Vector header contains the ICID value, ICID Generated at value and orig-ioi value. The string for orig-ioi value can be configured at egress trunk group.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
createPVisitedNetworkIdEnable flag to allow SBC acting as P-CSCF to insert a P-Visited-Network-ID Header in the egress REGISTER request with the P-Visited-Network-ID configured string.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
createPathHeaderEnable flag to create a new Path header in the outgoing REGISTER request.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
createServiceRouteHeaderEnable flag to create a new Service-Route header in the outgoing 200 OK response for REGISTER.
  • disable  (default)
  • enable

NOTE: When noServiceRouteHdrForEmergencyRegistration flag is enabled, SBC does not add Service-Route headers for emergency registrations even if addPathServiceRoute and createServiceRouteHeader flags are enabled.

customizedSessionTimerBehaviorWhen enabled, the remote peer expects customer-specific session timer behavior. When disabled, the remote peer expects the standard session timer behavior.
  • disable  (default)
  • enable
 

d

Command Syntax

commonIpAttributes flags {d}
% set profiles signaling ipSignalingProfile <profile_name> commonIpAttributes flags 
	disableAlsoHeader <disable | enable> 
	disableHostTranslation <disable | enable> 
	disableMediaLockDown <disable | enable> 
	disableReferToUriParameters <disable | enable> 
	discardReceivedReasonHeader <disable | enable> 
	doNotIncludeSsAttributeInReInvite <disable | enable> 

Command Parameters

Table : Flags {d}

ParameterDescription
disableAlsoHeaderEnable this flag to allow SBC to ignore the Also header if received from the remote peer and SBC does not send the Also header to the remote peer. When disabled, the SBC uses the Also header for call forwarding as usual.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
disableHostTranslationUse this flag to enable/disable host name translation. 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.
  • disable  (default)
  • enable
disableMediaLockDown

Enable this flag to allow SBC to disable media lock-down by not sending SIP Re-INVITE/UPDATE messages in the following scenarios:

  • Multiple codecs are sent in the offer and multiple codecs (or their subsets) are received in the answer, and the call becomes transcoded.
  • Multiple codecs are sent in the offer and a single codec is received in the response.
  • Multiple codecs are sent in the offer and a single codec with codec attributes is received in the response.

 If the result is a pass-through codec, and the most preferred codec in the answer (first codec in the list) is same as the selected codec, the SBC disables media lock-down by not informing the egress peer using a re-INVITE.

If the SBC offers both pass-through and transcoding codecs, the minimizeRelayingOfMediaChangesFromOtherCallLegAll flag effectively suppresses the re-INVITEs to peers when the peer answers with a single codec. However, if the peer has multiple codecs, the minimizeRelayingOfMediaChangesFromOtherCallLegAll flag in certain situations cannot suppress the re-INVITEs as a change in one of the common codecs is detected. In these situations, if the SBC’s most preferred codec matches the peer's most preferred codec, enable the disableMediaLockDown flag to suppress this Modify Offer initiated by the SBC to lock down the codec.

If this flag is disabled, the SBC sends a modify offer to lock down the codec.

  • disable  (default)
  • enable
disableReferToUriParametersBy default, this flag is disabled thereby allowing parameters in the SIP URI Refer-To header to pass through to the outgoing INVITE URI. Enable this flag to prevent the parameters from passing through.
  • disable  (default)
  • enable
discardReceivedReasonHeader Enable flag to ignore cause code in received Reason header. When disabled, the SBC uses the cause code in the received Reason header.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
doNotIncludeSsAttributeInReInviteEnable flag to prevent SBC from sending 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.
  • disable (default)
  • enable

NOTE: a=silenceSupp:on is never sent to remote peer in current implementation when silence suppression is on.

 

e

Command Syntax

commonIpAttributes flags {e}
% set profiles signaling ipSignalingProfile <profile_name> commonIpAttributes flags 
	enableDefaultPUIProcedures <disable | enable>

Table : Flags {e}

ParameterDescription
enableDefaultPUIProceduresEnable this flag to allow default PUI procedures on egress trunk group. Note that the Privacy 'Transparency' flag must be disabled to allow this feature.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
enableDialStringHandling 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.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
endToEndBye For SIP-to-SIP calls, enable flag to prevent SBC from issuing the 200 BYE on the side initiating the disconnect until the 200 BYE is received from the other leg. When disabled, the SBC issues the 200 BYE on the side initiating the disconnect regardless of whether a 200 BYE is received from the other leg.
  • disable (default)
  • enable

endToEndPrack

When this flag is enabled, SBC forwards the received reliable provisional response without generating PRACK locally. It waits for the PRACK from ingress peer to generate PRACK towards egress peer.

  • disable (default)
  • enable

NOTE: This flag must be enabled when both endpoints support PRACK and the 100rel header extension.

endToEndReInvite

When this flag is enabled, SBC forwards the Re-INVITEs received from one leg (with or without SDP) to the other leg.

  • disable (default)
  • enable
endToEndUpdate

Note that 'a=silenceSupp:on' is never sent to the remote peer in the Sonus implementation when Silence Suppression is ON.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
includeTransportTypeInContactHeader

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.

insertPAccessNetworkInfo

Enable flag to construct and send PANI with received location info.

  • disable (default)
  • enable
insertPeerAddressAsTopRouteHeaderWhen 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 acts as a IMS BGCF proxy, and also supports SIPconnect compliance for direct inward dialing.

l

Command Syntax

commonIpAttributes flags {l}
% set profiles signaling ipSignalingProfile <profile_name> commonIpAttributes flags 
	lockDownPreferredCodec <disable | enable>

Command Parameters

Table : Flags {l}

ParameterDescription
lockDownPreferredCodec

Enable this flag to maintain the most preferred codec of the leg on which it is enabled even if it requires transcoding. This feature also suppresses the re-INVITE triggered on the leg (on which it is enabled from the SBC) due to a MODIFY offer received from the other leg as part of mid-call codec modification.

  • disable (default)
  • enable

NOTE: This flag must be enabled in conjunction with minimizeRelayingOfMediaChangesFromOtherCallLegAll flag to produce desired results.

NOTE: When this flag is enabled, the flag “relayDataPathModeChangeFromOtherCallLeg” must also be enabled to propagate HOLD Modify Offers (any modify offer that changes the data-path-mode).

 

m

Command Syntax

commonIpAttributes flags {m}
% set profiles signaling ipSignalingProfile <profile_name> commonIpAttributes flags 
	mapCauseLocation <disable | enable> 
	mapSuspendResumeEventInPSvcInfoHeader <disable | enable> 
	mapUuiInPSigInfoHeader <disable | enable> 
	mimeCausePrecedeReasonHeaderCause <disable | enable> 
	minimizeRelayingOfMediaChangesFromOtherCallLegAll <disable | enable>

Command Parameters

Table : Flags {m}

ParameterDescription
mapCauseLocationEnable this flag to add the cause location is added to or retrieved from the SIP Reason header when mapping ISUP-to-SIP or SIP-to-ISUP signaling (you must also enable the Include Reason Header function). ISUP (and other protocols) indicate where in the network a call release was initiated from; this option enables the SIP Reason header to carry the cause location as well as the cause value. When flag is disabled, cause location mapping is off.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
mapSuspendResumeEventInPSvcInfoHeaderEnable this flag to map the suspend/resume event in the P-Svc-Info header. When disabled, the SBC does not map the suspend/resume event in the P-Svc-Info header.
  • disable  (default)
  • enable
mapUuiInPSigInfoHeaderEnable this flag to map the UUI parameter into the SIP P-Sig-Info header. When disabled, the SBC does not map or include the UUI parameter.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
mimeCausePrecedeReasonHeaderCauseWhen enabled, the cause value is mapped from the MIME body of the incoming message based on the Q.1912 standard. When disabled, the cause value is mapped from the Reason header based on the RFC3398 standard 
  • disable (default)
  • enable
minimizeRelayingOfMediaChangesFromOtherCallLegAll

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 this 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.

  • disable (default)
  • enable
 

n

Command Syntax

commonIpAttributes flags {n}
% set profiles signaling ipSignalingProfile <profile_name> commonIpAttributes flags 
	noContentDisposition <disable | enable> 
	noPortNumber5060 <disable | enable>
	noServiceRouteHdrForEmergencyRegistration <disable | enable>
	noUserinfoInContactHeader <disable | enable> 

Command Parameters

Table : Flags {n}

ParameterDescription
noContentDispositionThe Content Disposition header format in SIP messages expected by the remote peer. When enabled, the remote peer expects no Content Disposition header. When disabled, remote peer expects the standard SIP message format which includes Content Disposition header.
  • disable  (default)
  • enable
noPortNumber5060Use this parameter 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 port number 5060 (sip:user@host). In addition, 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 port number 5060 (sip:user@host:5060). In addition, if SBC does not receive a port number in Record-Route headers of SIP request and response messages, the SBC inserts port number 5060 into the outgoing Record-Route and Route headers.
  • disable (default)
  • enable 

NOTE: Enable this flag to allow DNS NAPTR/SRV lookups.

noServiceRouteHdrForEmergencyRegistration

When this flag is enabled, SBC does not add Service-Route headers for emergency registrations even if addPathServiceRoute and createServiceRouteHeader flags are enabled.

  • disable (default)
  • enable

noUserinfoInContactHeaderWhen this flag is 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.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
 

o

Command Syntax

commonIpAttributes flags {o}
% set profiles signaling ipSignalingProfile <profile_name> commonIpAttributes flags 
	onlySelectedCodecInSessionRefresh <disable | enable> 

Command Parameters

Table : Flags {o}

ParameterDescription
onlySelectedCodecInSessionRefreshWhen this flag is enabled, the SDP in a session keep-alive re-INVITE message will only include the currently-selected codec for the call. When disabled, the SDP in a session keep-alive re-INVITE message will be identical to that in the last offer. See example below.
  • disable (default)
  • enable

NOTE: The o-line of the SDP will be identical to that in the last offer.

Example:

--> The SBC sends an INVITE including Codec-A and Codec-B

<-- An 18x message is received identifying Codec-B.

--> The SBC sends a keep-alive reINVITE depending upon the flag setting:

  • disable: SBC sends keep-alive reINVITE with both Codec-A and Codec-B included
  • enable: SBC sends keep-alive reINVITE including Codec-B

  • disable (default)
  • enable
sendAllAllowedCodecsForLateMediaInviteOrReInvite

The sendAllAllowedCodecsForLateMediaInviteOrReInvite flag controls the handling of audio codecs that the SBC offers in response to a late media INVITE or Re-INVITE without SDP for transcoded calls.

  • When  this flag is disabled for transcoded calls (default behavior), the SBC offers the codec used for transcoding on the leg.
  • When the flag is enabled for transcoded calls, the SBC offers multiple codecs which include:
    • The subset of the codecs that the associated peer supports.
    • The transcoded codecs that the associated DSP channel supports. This includes the codec currently being used for transcoding.

For pass-through calls, the SBC always offers a subset of the codecs advertised by the associated peer. The SBC Offer codec list is classified as a subset because the list can be subjected to codec policy filters.

Configuration options:

  • disable (default)
  • enable

NOTE: Refer to SDP Support for examples of the above behavior.

sendDirectMediaInfoInSdpAttribute Enable flag to send direct media information in the SDP attribute X-DMI.
  • disable (default)

  • enable

NOTE: The 'directMediaAllowed' flag must be disabled on the associated trunk group.

sendOnlyPreferredCodec  

Enable this flag on Answer side to send a single preferred codec in an Answer for an Initial Offer or Re-Invite. Enable flag on Offer side to send the most preferred codec in a re-INVITE offer. When disabled, the SBC sends all possible pass-through codecs in the route Packet Service Profile when the call is answered.

This flag is used primarily in pass-through cases where more than one pass-through codec is possible. When generating an answer, the SBC chooses the most preferred codec based on the ordered list created by Send Route Preference (SRP)/Honor Remote Preference (HRP). Note that when this flag is disabled SBC sends all possible pass-through codecs in the answer or the Route Packet Service Profile when generating a re-INVITE offer. For offers generated by the SBC, especially in HOLD/RESUME cases, only the most preferred codec is sent in a re-INVITE offer when this flag is enabled.

  • disable (default)
  • enable
sendPtimeInSdp Enable flag to allow the SBC to send a=ptime in the SDP.
  • disable (default)
  • enable

sendRTCPBandwidthInfo

Enable flag to send the RR and RS bandwidth information, as well as "b=RR:" and "b=RS:" in the SDP offer.

  • disable (default)
  • enable
sendRtcpPortInSdp When enabled, the SBC adds the attribute,a=rtcp:<rtcpPort> to the audio and video m lines in the outgoing SDP (Rtcp port mentioned will be SBC RTP port + 1).
  • disable (default)
  • enable
sessionTimerRefreshUpdate Enable flag to control session timer refresh method with SIP peers via UPDATE messages. When disabled, the SBC sends INVITE messages.
  • disable (default)
  • enable

setAcceptHeaderToApplicationSdpOnly Use flag to specify the Accept header format in SIP messages expected by the remote peer. When enabled, the remote peer receives a short Accept header format containing the application/SDP value only. When disabled, the remote peer receives the standard Accept header format containing all of the standard parameters.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
setOlineDash Specifies the SDP O-Line format in the SDP of SIP messages expected by the remote peer. When enabled, the remote peer receives an O-Line format in which the username component is set to a "-" (dash). When disabled, the remote peer receives the standard O-Line format containing all of the O-Line parameters, including the username.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
setSessionVersionZero Enable flag to set the session version to zero in the o-line of the outbound SDP. When disabled, the SBC assigns a session version randomly.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
setSlineDash Specifies the SDP S-Line format in the SDP of SIP messages expected by the remote peer.
  • disable (default) – Remote peer receives standard S-Line format containing all of the S-Line parameters.
  • enable – Remote peer receives a short S-Line format containing a dash only (s=-).
skipPsxQueryForRefer Set flag to skip the ERE query for Refer flag.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
storePChargingFuncAddr Set this flag to store the values received in the PCFA header in a request or response. The stored value is added to a subsequent response or a request based on the flag addPChargingFuncAddr.
  • disable (default)
  • enable
storePChargingVector

When this flag is enabled, the SBC stores the P-Charging-Vector (PCV) received in requests. When the response is forwarded back, the stored PCV is inserted and sent. If the SBC receives the PCV when this flag is disabled, the SBC ignores the PCV and does not log the CDR.

  • disable (default)
  • enable

Example of SBC acting as IBCF:

            INVITE (PCV1) --> SBC --> INVITE
           200 OK (PCV1) <-- SBC <-- 200 OK

storePathHeader Set this flag to locally store (cache) a Path header received in an incoming REGISTER request.
