QoS framework for SIP signalling

Kist, Alexander A. and Harris, Richard J. (2004) QoS framework for SIP signalling. In: 2004 IASTED International Conference on Communications Systems and Applications (CSA 2004), 8-10 July 2004, Banff, Canada.


The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is widely accepted as the IETF alternative the ITU-T H.323 teleconferencing protocol to enable call and media session management and control. It is also used in carrier grade environments, such as the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in emerging Universal Mobile elecommunications System (UMTS) networks. This paper proposes a framework that enables the Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning for signalling messages. The contributions are twofold: Firstly, it defines an overall framework to enable QoS provisioning for SIP signalling messages in carrier grade networks. Secondly, it outlines existing work that fits into the framework and identifies areas that require
further investigation to implement the concepts in carrier grade networks.
