           A Telephony Gateway REgistration Protocol (TGREP)

Status of This Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

   This document describes the Telephony Gateway Registration Protocol
   (TGREP) for registration of telephony prefixes supported by telephony
   gateways and soft switches.  The registration mechanism can also be
   used to export resource information.  The prefix and resource
   information can then be passed on to a Telephony Routing over IP
   (TRIP) Location Server, which in turn can propagate that routing
   information within and between Internet Telephony Administrative
   Domains (ITADs).  TGREP shares a lot of similarities with the TRIP
   protocol.  It has similar procedures and finite state machine for
   session establishment.  It also shares the same format for messages
   and a subset of attributes with TRIP.

1.  Introduction

   It is assumed that the reader of this document is familiar with TRIP
   [2, 12].  In typical Voice over IP (VoIP) networks, Internet
   Telephony Administrative Domains (ITADs) will deploy numerous
