Interworking Between RSVP Capable and RSVP Incapable Networks

The 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 Unified Border Element (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.

Prerequisites for Interworking Between RSVP Capable and RSVP Incapable Networks

  • 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.

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 3.1S or a later release must be installed and running on your Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router.

    Enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3 interface type slot / port


    Example:
    Device(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:
    Device(config-if)# ip rsvp bandwidth 10000 100000 
     

    Enables RSVP for IP on an interface.

     
    Step 5 end


    Example:
    Device(config-if)# end
     

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

     

    Configuring Optional RSVP on the Dial Peer

    Perform this task to configure optional RSVP at the dial peer level. This configuration allows you to have uninterrupted call even if there is a failure in bandwidth reservation.

    SUMMARY STEPS

      1.    enable

      2.    configure terminal

      3.    dial-peer voice tag voip

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

      5.    req-qos {controlled-load | guaranteed-delay} [audio | video] [bandwidth [default bandwidth-value] [max bandwidth-value]]

      6.    end


    DETAILED STEPS
       Command or ActionPurpose
      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 dial-peer voice tag voip


      Example:
      Device(config)# dial-peer 77 voip
       

      Enters dial peer voice configuration mode.

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


      Example:
      Device(config-dial-peer)# no acc-qos controlled-load 
       

      Removes any value configured for the acc-qos command.

      • Keywords are as follows:
        • controlled-load--Indicates that RSVP guarantees a single level of preferential service, presumed to correlate to a delay boundary. The controlled load service uses admission (or capacity) control to ensure that preferential service is received even when the bandwidth is overloaded.
        • guaranteed-delay--Indicates that RSVP reserves bandwidth and guarantees a minimum bit rate and preferential queueing if the bandwidth reserved is not exceeded.
       
      Step 5 req-qos {controlled-load | guaranteed-delay} [audio | video] [bandwidth [default bandwidth-value] [max bandwidth-value]]


      Example:
      Device(config-dial-peer)# req-qos controlled-load
       

      Configures the desired quality of service (QoS) to be used.

      • Calls continue even if there is a failure in bandwidth reservation.
      Note   

      Configure the req-qos commandusing the same keyword that you used to configure the acc-qos command, either controlled-load or guaranteed-delay. That is, if you configured acc-qos controlled-load command in the previous step, then use the req-qos controlled-load command here.

       
      Step 6 end


      Example:
      Device(config-dial-peer)# end
       

      (Optional) Exits dial peer voice configuration mode and returns to privileged EXEC mode.

       

      Configuring Mandatory RSVP on the Dial Peer

      Perform this task to configure Mandatory RSVP on the dial peer. This configuration ensures that the call does not connect if sufficient bandwidth is not allocated.

        Enters dial peer voice configuration mode.

         
        Step 4 acc-qos {best-effort | controlled-load | guaranteed-delay} [audio | video]


        Example:
        Device(config-dial-peer)# acc-qos best-effort 
         

        Configures mandatory RSVP on the dial-peer.

        • Keywords are as follows:
          • best-effort--Indicates that Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) makes no bandwidth reservation. This is the default.
          • controlled-load--Indicates that RSVP guarantees a single level of preferential service, presumed to correlate to a delay boundary. The controlled load service uses admission (or capacity) control to ensure that preferential service is received even when the bandwidth is overloaded.
          • guaranteed-delay--Indicates that RSVP reserves bandwidth and guarantees a minimum bit rate and preferential queueing if the bandwidth reserved is not exceeded.
         
        Step 5 req-qos {best-effort [audio | video] | {controlled-load | guaranteed-delay} [audio | video] [bandwidth [default bandwidth-value] [max bandwidth-value]]}


        Example:
        Device(config-dial-peer)# req-qos controlled-load

          Device(config-dial-peer)# voice-class sip rsvp-fail-policy voice post-alert mandatory keep-alive interval 50
           

          Enables call handling policies for a midcall RSVP failure.

          • Keywords are as follows:
            • optional keep-alive--The keepalive messages are sent when RSVP fails only if RSVP negotiation is optional.
            • mandatory keep-alive--The keepalive messages are sent when RSVP fails only if RSVP negotiation is mandatory.
          Note   

          Keepalive messages are sent at 30-second intervals when a postalert call fails to negotiate RSVP regardless of the RSVP negotiation setting (mandatory or optional).

           
          Step 5 end

            Configures DSCP values based on RSVP status.

            • Keywords are as follows:
              • media rsvp-pass--Specifies that the DSCP value applies to media packets with successful RSVP reservations.
              • media rsvp-fail--Specifies that the DSCP value applies to packets (media or video) with failed RSVP reservations.
              • The default DSCP value for all media (voice and fax) packets is ef.
            Note
