IP-to-IP Gateway SIP-to-SIP Basic Functionality

SIP-to-SIP Basic Functionality for Cisco Unified Border Element (Cisco UBE) and Cisco Unified Border Element (Enterprise) (Cisco UBE (Enterprise)) provides termination and reorigination of both signaling and media between VoIP and video networks using SIP signaling in conformance with RFC3261. The SIP-to-SIP protocol interworking capabilities support the following:

  • Basic voice calls (Supported audio codecs include: G.711, G.729, G.728, G.726, G.723, G.722, gsmamr nb, AAC_LD, iLBC. Video codecs: H.263, and H.264)
  • Calling/called name and number
  • DTMF relay interworking
    • SIP RFC 2833 <-> SIP RFC 2833
    • SIP Notify <-> SIP Notify
  • Interworking between SIP early-media and SIP early-media signaling
  • Interworking between SIP delayed-media and SIP delayed-media signaling
  • RADIUS call-accounting records
  • RSVP synchronized with call signaling
  • SIP-to-SIP Video calls
  • TCL IVR 2.0 for SIP, including media playout and digit collection (RFC 2833 DTMF relay)
  • T.38 fax relay and Cisco fax relay
  • UDP and TCP transport

Prerequisites for IP-to-IP Gateway SIP-to-SIP Basic Functionality

Cisco Unified Border Element

  • Cisco IOS Release 12.2(13)T3 or a later release must be installed and running on your Cisco Unified Border Element.

Cisco Unified Border Element (Enterprise)

  • Cisco IOS XE Release 2.5 or a later release must be installed and running on your Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router.

Restrictions for IP-to-IP Gateway SIP-to-SIP Basic Functionality

  • Connections are disabled by default in Cisco IOS images that support the Cisco UBE (Enterprise).

How to Configure SIP-to-SIP Connections in a Cisco Unified Border Element Enterprise

To configure SIP-to-SIP connection types, perform the steps in this section.

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    voice service voip

    4.    allow-connections from-type to to-type

    5.    exit


DETAILED STEPS
      Command or Action Purpose
    Step 1 enable


    Example:
    Device> enable
     

    Enables privileged EXEC mode.

    • Enter your password if prompted.
     
    Step 2 configure terminal


    Example:
    Device# configure terminal
     

    Enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3 voice service voip


    Example:
    Device(config)# voice service voip
     

    Enters VoIP voice-service configuration mode.

     
    Step 4 allow-connections from-type to to-type


    Example:
    Device(config-voi-serv)# allow-connections sip to sip
     

    Allows connections between specific types of endpoints in an Cisco UBE. Arguments are as follows:

    • from-type --Type of connection. Valid values: h323, sip.
    • to-type --Type of connection. Valid values: h323, sip.
    Note   

    H.323-to-H.323: By default, H.323-to-H.323 connections are disabled and POTS-to-any and any-to-POTS connections are enabled.

     
    Step 5 exit


    Example:
    Device(config-voi-serv)# exit
     

    Exits the current mode.
