Configuring RTP Media Loopback for SIP Calls

Configuring RTP Media Loopback for SIP Calls

Last Updated: December 20, 2011

RTP packets are looped back toward the source device when the RTP Media Loopback for SIP Calls feature is configured on a dial peer. The SIP RTP media loopback can be used during Cisco UBE deployments to make test calls to verify the media path between the endpoints and Cisco UBE. In a voice loopback call, an echo is heard at the device originating the call. In a video loopback call, the locally captured video and the audio echo must be rendered at the source device.

Before You Begin

Media packets must be enabled to pass through the gateway. Use the media flow-through command in dial peer voice or voice service configuration mode to enable the media packets.

Cisco Unified Border Element

  • Cisco IOS Release 15.1(4)M or a later release must be installed and running on your Cisco Unified Border Element.

Cisco Unified Border Element (Enterprise)

  • Cisco IOS XE Release 3.3S or a later release must be installed and running on your Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router.

Note


  • SRTP, DTLS, and STUN are not supported in loopback mode.
  • Fax (midcall transmit function change) is not supported.
  • RSVP is not supported.
  • Call transfer is not supported.

SUMMARY STEPS

1.    enable

2.    configure terminal

3.    dial-peer voice tag voip

4.    destination-pattern string

5.    session protocol sipv2

6.    session target loopback:rtp

7.    incoming called-number string

8.    exit


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
dial-peer voice tag voip


Example:

Router(config)# dial-peer voice 77 voip

 

Specifies that the dial peer is a VoIP peer and enters dial peer voice configuration mode.

 
Step 4
destination-pattern string


Example:

Router(config-dial-peer)# destination-pattern 77

 

Specifies the prefix or the full E.164 number for the dial peer.

 
Step 5
session protocol sipv2


Example:

Router(config-dial-peer)# session protocol sipv2

 

Specifies the session protocol for calls with the SIP option.

 
Step 6
session target loopback:rtp


Example:

Router(config-dial-peer)# session target loopback:rtp

 

Designates a network-specific address to receive calls from a VoIP dial peer and configures all voice data to loop back to the source.

 
Step 7
incoming called-number string


Example:

Router(config-dial-peer)# incoming called-number 77

 

Specifies a digit string that can be matched by an incoming call to associate the call with the dial peer.

 
Step 8
exit


Example:

Router(config-dial-peer)# exit

 

Exits dial peer voice configuration mode and enters global configuration mode.
