SIP — RFC 5359's Service examples

In the representation of the call flows associated to these services:
  • Only the more relevant header fields are shown: From, To, Call-ID, Cseq, Contact, Route, Record-Route, and some other ones depending on the example.
  • The Via and Max-Forwards header fields are never shown.
  • The "100 Trying" messages are not shown.
  • By default, when there is a message body, the Content-Type is "application/sdp".
  • The "" domain has been renamed "" and the "client" subdomain for "", "" and "" has been replaced respectively by "u1", "u2" and "u3".

In the context of these illustrations, mnemonics are used for To/From's tag parameter and Call-ID values, according to the following rules:
  • a tag is under the form: <x>-tag, where x is typically a letter identifying the UA (a for Alice, b for Bob, c for Carol). When other tags for the same UA are required in an example, a digit is added (e.g. a2, b2).
  • the Call-ID for a Session is under the form: <xy>-cid, where x is the tag identifier of the session's initiator and y the tag identifier of the recipient: e.g. ab-cid when Alice calls Bob.
