URI-Based Dialing Enhancements

Contents

URI-Based Dialing Enhancements

The URI-Based Dialing Enhancements feature describes the enhancements made to Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)-based dialing on Cisco Unified Border Element (Cisco UBE) for Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) calls. The URI-Based Dialing Enhancements feature includes support for call routing on Cisco UBE when the user part of the incoming Request-URI is non-E164 (for example, INVITE sip:user@abc.com).

Information About URI-Based Dialing Enhancements

Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) supports dialing using directory Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) for call addressing. Directory URIs follow the username@host format where the host portion is an IPv4 address or a fully qualified domain name. A directory URI is a string of characters that can be used to identify a directory number. If that directory number is assigned to a phone, CUCM can route calls to that phone using the directory URI. URI dialing is available for Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and Signaling Connection Control Part (SCCP) endpoints that support directory URIs.

The primary use of URI-based dialing is peer-to-peer calling between enterprises using complete URI addresses (that is, ‘username@host’). The host part of the URI identifies the destination to which the call should be routed. In earlier Cisco Unified Border Element (Cisco UBE) URI routing, the URI was replaced in the SIP header with the destination server IP address. Then routing of calls was based on the following restrictions:
  • The user part of the incoming Request-URI must be an E164 number.
  • The outgoing Request-URI is always set to the session target information of the outbound dial peer.
The URI-Based Dialing Enhancements feature extends support for Cisco UBE URI-based routing of calls. With these enhancements Cisco UBE supports:
  • URI-based routing when the user part of the incoming Request-URI is non-E164 (for example, INVITE sip:user@abc.com).
  • URI-based routing when the user part is not present. The user part is an optional parameter in the URI (for example, INVITE sip:abc.com).
  • Copying the outgoing Request-URI and To header from the inbound Request-URI and To header respectively.
  • Deriving (optionally) the session target for the outbound dial peer from the host portion of the inbound URI.
  • URI-based routing for 302, Refer, and Bye Also scenarios.
  • Call hunting where the subsequent dial peer is selected based on URI.
  • Pass through of 302, with the host part of Contact: unmodified.

Call Flows for URI-Based Dialing Enhancements

Case1: URI dialing with username being E164 or non-E164 number and Request-URI host copied from the inbound leg.

Case 2: Incoming Request-URI does not contain user part. The To: header information is also copied from the peer leg when the requri-passing command is enabled.

Case 3: The old behavior of setting the outbound Request-URI to session target is retained when the requri-passing command is not enabled.

Case 4: The session target derived from the host part of the URI. The outgoing INVITE is sent to resolved IP address of the host part of the URI.

Case 5: Pass through of contact URI to request URI.

Case 6: In 302 pass-through, contact header can be passed through from one leg to another by using the contact-passing command.

Case 7: Pass through of refer-to URI to request URI.

Case 8: URI routing based on BYE Also header.

How to Configure URI-Based Dialing Enhancements

Configuring Pass Through of SIP URI Headers

Perform these to configure the pass through of the host part of the Request-Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and To Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) headers. By default, Cisco Unified Border Element (Cisco UBE) sets the host part of the URI to the value configured under the session target of the outbound dial peer. For more information, see Case 1 in the "Call Flows for URI-based Dialing Enhancements" section.
