Dynamic Payload Type Interworking for DTMF and Codec Packets for SIP-to-SIP Calls

Contents

Dynamic Payload Type Interworking for DTMF and Codec Packets for SIP-to-SIP Calls

The Dynamic Payload Type Interworking for DTMF and Codec Packets for SIP-to-SIP Calls feature provides dynamic payload type interworking for dual tone multifrequency (DTMF) and codec packets for Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) to SIP calls.

Based on this feature, the Cisco Unified Border Element (Cisco UBE) interworks between different dynamic payload type values across the call legs for the same codec. Also, Cisco UBE supports any payload type value for audio, video, named signaling events (NSEs), and named telephone events (NTEs) in the dynamic payload type range 96 to 127.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest caveats and feature information, see Bug Search Tool and 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 module.

Symmetric and Asymmetric Calls

Cisco UBE supports dynamic payload type negotiation and interworking for all symmetric and asymmetric payload type combinations. A call leg on Cisco UBE is considered as symmetric or asymmetric based on the payload type value exchanged during the offer and answer with the endpoint:

  • A symmetric endpoint accepts and sends the same payload type.
  • An asymmetric endpoint can accept and send different payload types.

The Dynamic Payload Type Interworking for DTMF and Codec Packets for SIP-to-SIP Calls feature is enabled by default for a symmetric call. An offer is sent with a payload type based on the dial-peer configuration. The answer is sent with the same payload type as was received in the incoming offer. When the payload type values negotiated during the signaling are different, the Cisco UBE changes the Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) payload value in the VoIP to RTP media path.

To support asymmetric call legs, you must enable The Dynamic Payload Type Interworking for DTMF and Codec Packets for SIP-to-SIP Calls feature. The dynamic payload type value is passed across the call legs, and the RTP payload type interworking is not required. The RTP payload type handling is dependent on the endpoint receiving them.

High Availability Checkpointing Support for Asymmetric Payload

High availability for a call involving asymmetric payloads is supported. In case of fail-over from active to stand-by, the asymmetric payload interworking will be continued as new active CUBE passes across the payload type values according to the negotiation and call establishment.
