V150.1 MER Support in SDP Passthrough Mode

V150.1 MER Support in SDP Passthrough Mode

The Cisco V.150.1 Minimum Essential Requirements (MER) feature complies with the requirements of the National Security Agency (NSA) SCIP-216 Minimum Essential Requirements for V.150.1 recommendation, which provides for four states: audio, voice-band data (VBD), modem relay, and T.38. This feature is added in CUBE (IP-IP gateway) for  V.150.1 calls to traverse a CUBE in SDP passthrough flow-through mode.

Information About VER.150.1 MER Support in SDP Passthrough Mode

V.150.1 MER Support in SDP Passthrough Mode

V.150.1 is an ITU standard for relaying modem or fax transmission that uses state signaling event (SSE) packets to trigger the transition from audio to modem-relay mode or fax-relay mode. The SSE headers are carried in the RTP packet. After call setup, in-band signaling through Simple Packet Relay Transport (SPRT) and SSE messages is used to transition from one state to another. SPRT packets (non-RTP packets) carry the data after the digital signal processor (DSP) transitions into modem relay mode. UDPTL packets carry the data after the DSP transitions into fax-relay mode.

This feature is added in CUBE (IP-to-IP gateway) to support the  V.150.1 MER modem relay in SDP passthrough mode. This is of importance when CUBE is in the media path between V.150.1 MER supported gateways and needs to handle non-RTP packets (such as SPRT packets).

How to Configure V.150.1 MER Support for SDP Passthrough

Configuring V.150.1 MER Support for SDP Passthrough

SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    enable

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    Set passthrough SDP mode to non-RTP:

    • voice-class sip pass-thru content sdp mode non-rtp in the dial-peer configuration mode.
    • pass-thru content sdp mode non-rtp in the global VoIP SIP configuration mode.

    4.    end


DETAILED STEPS
     Command or ActionPurpose
    Step 1enable


    Example:
    Device> enable
     

    Enables privileged EXEC mode. Enter your password if prompted.

     
    Step 2configure terminal


    Example:
    Device# configure terminal
     

    Enters global configuration mode.

     
    Step 3Set passthrough SDP mode to non-RTP:
    • voice-class sip pass-thru content sdp mode non-rtp in the dial-peer configuration mode.
    • pass-thru content sdp mode non-rtp in the global VoIP SIP configuration mode.


    Example:In dial-peer configuration mode
    !Setting passthrough SDP mode for one dial peer only
    Device (config)#dial-peer voice 20 voip
    Device (config-dial-peer)#voice-class sip pass-thru content sdp mode non-rtp 
    Device (config-dial-peer)#end
    


    Example:In global VoIP SIP mode
    !Setting passthrough SDP mode globally
    Device(config)#voice service voip
    Device (conf-voi-serv)#sip
    Device (conf-serv-sip)#pass-thru content sdp mode non-rtp
    Device (conf-serv-sip)#end 
    
     
     
    Step 4 end
     

    Exits to privileged EXEC mode.
