Configuring Support for Interworking Between RSVP Capable and RSVP Incapable Networks

Configuring Support for Interworking Between RSVP Capable and RSVP Incapable Networks

Last Updated: December 20, 2011

The Support for Interworking Between RSVP Capable and RSVP Incapable Networks feature provides precondition-based Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) support for basic audio call and supplementary services on Cisco UBE. This feature improves the interoperability between RSVP and non-RSVP networks. RSVP functionality added to Cisco UBE helps you to reserve the required bandwidth before making a call.

This feature extends RSVP support to delayed-offer to delayed-offer and delayed-offer to early-offer calls, along with the early-offer to early-offer calls.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest feature information and caveats, see the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the Feature Information Table at the end of this document.

Use Cisco Feature Navigator to find information about platform support and Cisco software image support. To access Cisco Feature Navigator, go to www.cisco.com/go/cfn. An account on Cisco.com is not required.

Prerequisites

  • RSVP policies allow you to configure separate bandwidth pools with varying limits so that any one application, such as video, can consume all the RSVP bandwidth on a specified interface at the expense of other applications, such as voice, which would be dropped.
  • To limit bandwidth per application, you must configure a bandwidth limit before configuring Support for the Interworking Between RSVP Capable and RSVP Incapable Networks feature. See the Configuring RSVP on an Interface task.

Cisco Unified Border Element

  • Cisco IOS Release 15.0(1)XA or a later release must be installed and running on your Cisco Unified Border Element.

Cisco Unified Border Element (Enterprise)

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

Restrictions

The Support for Interworking Between RSVP Capable and RSVP Incapable Networks feature has the following restrictions:

  • Segmented RSVP is not supported.
  • Interoperability between Cisco UBE and Cisco Unified Communications Manager is not available.
  • RSVP-enabled video calls are not supported.

Configuring RSVP on an Interface

You must allocate some bandwidth for the interface before enabling RSVP. Perform this task to configure RSVP on an interface.

SUMMARY STEPS

1.    enable

2.    configure terminal

3.    interface type slot / port

4.    ip rsvp bandwidth [reservable-bw [max-reservable-bw] [sub-pool reservable-bw]]

5.    end


DETAILED STEPS
  Command or Action Purpose
Step 1
enable


Example:

Router> enable

 

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

  • Enter your password if prompted.
 
Step 2
configure terminal


Example:

Router# configure terminal

 

Enters global configuration mode.

 
Step 3
interface type slot / port


Example:

Router(config)# interface FastEthernet 0/1

 

Configures an interface type and enters interface configuration mode.

 
Step 4
ip rsvp bandwidth [reservable-bw [max-reservable-bw] [sub-pool reservable-bw]]


Example:

Router(config-if)# ip rsvp bandwidth 10000 100000

 

Enables RSVP for IP on an interface.

 
Step 5
end


Example:

Router(config-if)# end

 

(Optional) Exits interface configuration mode and returns to privileged EXEC mode.

2.    configure terminal

3.    dial-peer voice tag voip

4.    no acc-qos {controlled-load | guaranteed-delay} [audio | video]
