Expires Timer Reset on Receiving or Sending SIP 183 Message

Expires Timer Reset on Receiving or Sending SIP 183 Message

This feature enables support for resetting the Expires timer when receiving or sending SIP 183 messages on Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (Cisco Unified CME), a Cisco IOS voice gateway, or a Cisco Unified Border Element (Cisco UBE). When the terminating device lacks answer supervision or does not send the required SIP 200 OK message within the timer expiry, you can enable this feature to send periodic SIP 183 messages to reset the Expires timer and preserve the call until final response. This feature can be enabled globally or on a specific dial peer. Additionally, you can configure this feature based on the presence or absence of Session Description Protocol (SDP).

For details about enabling this feature, see the reset timer expires and voice-class sip reset timer expires commands in the Cisco IOS Voice Command Reference.
