About this Page

  • This document details how to configure the SBC to pass through the Reason header from LYNC's CANCEL message to any other leg that is forked by LYNC.
  • This document shows the creation of a SMM Rule Table that selects only certain SIP Messages for modification. In this case, only CANCEL packets will be modified.
  • This document details how to use the SMM feature to pass-through a SIP Header that is normally removed by the SBC.
  • This document features the use of a Header Name that isn't included in the pre-programmed token list.

Requires Sonus SBC1000/2000 Version 2.2

 

Summary

When LYNC forks a call and that call is answered by one of the forked devices, LYNC will CANCEL the other forked legs. The CANCEL includes a Reason header which should stop the other forked devices from displaying a missed call notifcation.

Figure : Forked Lync Call 1

Figure : Forked Lync Call 2



The SBC does not natively transport the received Reason header, so, using the configuration below, the SBC can pass-through the Reason header to other call legs.

Passing-through a CANCEL's Reason Header

This document details how to pass a Reason Header from the incoming SIP leg to the outgoing SIP leg.

Configure the SBC1000/2000 for Header Manipulation

  1. Create two new SIP Message Rule Tables. The first will be used to capture the SIP Reason header from SIP CANCEL messages delivered by LYNC. The second will be used to add the Reason header to CANCEL messages being sent by the SBC.

    Figure : Create SIP Message Rule Table

     

    Figure : Collect Reason

    Figure : Send Reason

  2. Add a SIP Message Rule to capture the Reason header using the Add Header selection.

    Figure : Add SIP Message Rule

     

    The Header Name Reason isn't included in the token drop-down list. It must be typed in by hand!

  3. In a separate SIP Message Table, add a SIP Message Rule to add the Reason header to the outgoing SIP CANCEL message. Again, use the Add Header selection.

  4. On the LYNC or SBA Signaling Group, add the capture SIP Message Rule to the Inbound Message Manipulation.

    Figure : Add Capture SIP Message Rule

     

  5. On any Signaling Group which would send a forked call, add the sending SIP Message Rule to the Outbound Message Manipulation.

Important Notes

The SIP Header feature cannot generate a new SIP packet. Only arriving or leaving SIP packets changed via the SIP Header function.

Care must be exercised when modifying incoming SIP packets, especially with respects to the TO, FROM and RURI headers. Modifying tags, IDs or any other items that define the dialogue or transactions, will likely cause calls to not complete.

  • No labels
