This TR describes the implementation options and requirements for a media server control protocol to be used with the Mr and ISC interfaces. This TR includes the study of the following items:
Define the requirements for a media server control protocol.
Consider existing standards work that should be studied for the definition of a media server control protocol.
Study and determine whether the media server control protocol should be carried in SIP or whether SIP should be used to setup a dedicated control interface.
Study whether the AS directing the SIP session to the MRFC is always the same SIP-AS that should control the MRFC.
Determine whether the media server control protocol should have a package naming and extension capability (similar to H.248 packages) to allow the support and registration of different media processing capabilities.
Determine the SIP call flows and SDP capabilities associated with the media server control protocol and whether these SIP messages need to be passed through a S-CSCF proxy function or whether it is more efficient to have a direct AS-MRFC interface.
This TR will be used to move into the specification phase for a media server control protocol.
