Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is an application layer protocol which is used to initiate voice and video call communication sessions over Internet Protocol. It does not include any voice or video data, SIP just establishes a session between two end points.
Step 3. Enter the service name in the Service Name field.
Step 4. Choose UDP from the Protocol drop-down list. User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is connectionless and faster than TCP, making it better suited for VoIP traffic. A UDP number is displayed next to the Protocol field.
Step 5. Enter 5060 to 5070 as the port range in the Port Range fields. This is the port range used by Vonage for SIP.
Step 6. Click Add to List to add the new service to the table.
Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) is used to exchange voice or video data packets after the SIP protocol establishes a session. In this case, RTP carries the voice and video data over IP.
Step 7. Click Add New to add a second configuration to the list.
Step 8. Enter the service name in the Service Name field.
