The MediaCtrl working group in the IETF has proposed an architecture for
controlling media services. The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is used as the signaling
protocol that provides many inherent capabilities for message routing. In addition to such
signaling properties, a need exists for intelligent, application-level media service selection based on
non-static signaling properties. This is especially true when considered in conjunction with deployment
architectures that include 1:M and M:N combinations of Application Servers and Media Servers.
This document introduces a Media Resource Broker (MRB) entity, which manages the availability
of Media Servers and the media resource demands of Application Servers. The document
includes potential deployment options for an MRB and appropriate interfaces to Application Servers
and Media Servers.
