SIP Proxy Server Configuration

SIP Proxy Server Configuration

A SIP Proxy Server is a device that routes individual SIP transport messages among SIP endpoints. It plays a key role in high availability in a Unified CVP deployment for call switching. It is designed to support multiple SIP endpoints of various types, and implements load balancing and failover among those endpoints. SIP Proxy Servers are deployed alone or as a pair. Smaller Unified CVP deployments run without a SIP Proxy Server. In such a deployment, the Unified CVP SIP service assumes some of those functions because it configures a static table to look up destinations.

Unified CVP works with RFC-3261-compliant SIP Proxy Servers and has been qualified with Cisco Unified SIP Proxy.
