Abstract

   The 3rd-Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) has selected Session
   Initiation Protocol (SIP) as the session establishment protocol for
   the 3GPP IP Multimedia Core Network Subsystem (IMS).  IMS is part of
   Release 5 of the 3GPP specifications.  Although SIP is a protocol
   that fulfills most of the requirements for establishing a session in
   an IP network, SIP has never been evaluated against the specific 3GPP
   requirements for operation in a cellular network.  In this document,
   we express the requirements identified by 3GPP to support SIP for
   Release 5 of the 3GPP IMS in cellular networks.
