              Session Initiation Protocol Service Examples

Status of This Memo

   This document specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the
   Internet Community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

   This document gives examples of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)
   services.  This covers most features offered in so-called IP Centrex
   offerings from local exchange carriers and PBX (Private Branch
   Exchange) features.  Most of the services shown in this document are
   implemented in the SIP user agents, although some require the
   assistance of a SIP proxy.  Some require some extensions to SIP
   including the REFER, SUBSCRIBE, and NOTIFY methods and the Replaces
   and Join header fields.  These features are not intended to be an
   exhaustive set, but rather show implementations of common features
   likely to be implemented on SIP IP telephones in a business
   environment.
