SIP UPDATE Message per RFC 3311

SIP UPDATE Message per RFC 3311

The SIP UPDATE Message per RFC 3311 feature provides Session Description Protocol (SDP) support for Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-to-SIP calls. The SIP Service Provider Interface (SPI) is modified to support the following media changes using the UPDATE message:

  • Early dialog SIP-to-SIP media changes.
  • Mid dialog SIP-to-SIP media changes.

The Support for SIP UPDATE Message Per RFC 3311 feature is enabled by default on the Cisco Unified Border Element (UBE) and no configuration is required.
