Abstract

   This text documents 'P-Charge-Info', an existing private Session
   Initiation Protocol (SIP) header (P-header) used to convey billing
   information about the party to be charged.  This P-Header is
   currently in production usage by a number of equipment vendors and
   carriers and this document is submitted to request the registration
   of this header with IANA. This P-Header may also be used in some
   situations to carry the ISUP Charge Number parameter for PSTN
   interconnection.

   NOTE: This document has been in development since 2008 under the name
   draft-york-sipping-p-charge-info.  This -00 document is identical to
   draft-york-sipping-p-charge-info-15 except for edits to the text to
   indicate this is now for the DISPATCH working group.
