The SBC supports, by default, 1,300 Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) bytes, and the MTU size used by the SBC is configurable. If the initial INVITE message size exceeds the default MTU value, the SBC sends the data over the TCP transport protocol. The TCP transport protocol is used if it is allowed by the transport profile irrespective of its preference order.
