     A Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Load-Control Event Package

Abstract

   This specification defines a load-control event package for the
   Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).  It allows SIP entities to
   distribute load-filtering policies to other SIP entities in the
   network.  The load-filtering policies contain rules to throttle calls
   from a specific user or based on their source or destination domain,
   telephone number prefix.  The mechanism helps to prevent signaling
   overload and complements feedback-based SIP overload control efforts.
