Abstract

   The features "call completion on busy subscriber" and "call
   completion on no reply" allow the calling party of a failed call to
   be notified when the called party becomes available to receive a
   call.  This document describes an architecture for implementing these
   features in the Session Initiation Protocol: "Call completion"
   implementations at the caller's and callee's endpoints cooperate to
   place the caller's request for call completion into a queue at the
   callee's endpoint, and, when a caller's request is ready to be
   serviced, re-attempt the original, failed call.

Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


1.  Introduction

   The call-completion architecture is an end-to-end design driven by
   the interactions between two types of agents, a "caller's agent"
   which operates on behalf of the original caller, and a "callee's
   monitor", which operates on behalf of the original callee.  The two
   agents are associated with the two UAs, though they may be provided
   as services by the endpoints' home proxies or other network elements.
   Though it is expected that a UA that "implements call completion"
   will have both types of agents so that it can participate in call
   completion as both caller and callee, the two agents are independent
   of each other.

   In order to allow flexibility and innovation, most of the interaction
   between the caller's agent and the caller-user(s) and the caller's
   UA(s) is out of the scope of this document.

   Similarly, most of the interaction between the callee's monitor and
   the callee-user(s) and the callee's UA(s) is out of the scope of this
   document, as is also the policy by which the callee's monitor
   arbitrates between multiple call-completion requests.

   As a proof-of-concept, simple agents and monitors can be devised that
   interact with users and UAs entirely through standard SIP mechanisms
   [RFC3265], [RFC4235] and [RFC3515], as described in the Appendixes.


2.  Requirements terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

   This document uses terms from [RFC3261].


3.  Terminology

   For the purpose of this service, we provide the following
   terminologies:

   CC, or call completion: a service which allows a call which failed to
   reach a desired destination user to be notified when the called party
   becomes available to receive a call.

   CC indicator: the data in responses to the INVITE of the original
   call which indicate that CC is available for this call.

Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   CC activation: the indication by the caller to the caller's agent
   that the caller desires CC for a failed original call; this implies
   an indication transmitted from the caller's agent to the callee's
   monitor of the desire for CC processing,

   CC request: the entry in the callee's monitor queue representing the
   original call and the caller's request for CC processing.

   CCBS, or Completion of Calls to Busy Subscriber: CC service when the
   initial failure was that the destination UA was busy.

   CCNR, or Completion of Calls on No Reply: a CC service when the
   initial failure was that the destination UA was not answered.

   CCBS/CCNR service duration timer, or CC service duration timer:
   maximum time a CC request may remain active within the network.

   CC call: a call from the caller to the callee, triggered by the CC
   service when it has determined that the callee is available.

   CC recall: (1) the action of the callee's monitor selecting a
   particular CC request as one that should initiate a CC call, (2) the
   indication from the caller's agent to the caller that it is now
   possible to initiate a CC call.

   CC recall events: Event notifications of event package "call-
   completion", sent by the callee's monitor to the caller's agent to
   inform it of the status of its CC request.

   Call-completion queue: a buffer at the callee' monitor which stores
   incoming calls which have failed or may have failed.  Note: This
   buffer may or may not be organized as a queue.  The use of the term
   "queue" is by analogy with SS7 usage.

   Caller, calling user, originator, or call-completion user: the
   initiator of the original call and the CC request.  The user on whose
   behalf the call-completion call is made.

   Callee, called user, destination, or call-completion target: a
   destination of the original call, and a target of the call-completion
   call.

   Callee's monitor, or monitor: a component which implements the call-
   completion queue for destination user(s)/UA(s), and performs the
   associated tasks, including sending CC recall events, analogous to
   the destination local exchange's role in SS7 CC.

   Caller's agent, or agent: a component which makes CC requests and



Worley, et al.            Expires June 11, 2009                 [Page 5]


Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   responds to CC recall events on behalf of originating user(s)/UA(s),
   analogous to the originating local exchange's role in SS7 CC.

   Original call: the initial call which failed to reach a desired
   destination.

   Suspended CC request: a CC request which is temporarily not to be
   selected for CC recall.

   Retain option: a characteristic of the call-completion service; if
   supported, call-completion calls which again encounter a busy callee
   will not be queued again, but the position of the caller's entry in
   the queue is retained.


4.  Overview

4.1.  General

   The call-completion architecture augments each caller's UA (or UAC)
   which wishes to be able to use the call-completion features with with
   a "call-completion agent" (also written as "CC agent", "agent", or
   "caller's agent").  It augments each callee's UA (or UAS) which
   wishes to be able to be the target of the call-completion features
   with a "call-completion monitor" (also written as "CC monitor",
   "monitor", or "callee's monitor").  The agent and monitor functions
   can be integrated into the respective UAs, be independent end-
   systems, or be provided by a centralized application server.

   In order to request call-completion, the caller's agent subscribes to
   the call-completion event package (as defined in chapter 6) of the
   callee's monitor.  This subscription is used to coordinate with the
   monitor (and indirectly with other caller's agents and other callee's
   monitors) to implement the call-completion features.

   When the caller's UA makes a call to a callee that fails (e.g.,
   because the callee was busy or the callee did not answer), and the
   caller wishes to use CC to contact the callee later, the caller
   instructs the caller's agent to activate the CC feature.

   The caller's agent sends a SUBSCRIBE request for the call-completion
   event package to the original destination URI of the call.  This
   SUBSCRIBE reaches the callee's monitor.  The callee's monitor uses
   the existence of the subscription to know that the caller is
   interested in using the CC feature in regard to the specified
   original call.  The monitor keeps a list or queue of failed calls to
   the callee, and of the caller's agent's subscriptions, which indicate
   the callers that are waiting to use the CC features.



Worley, et al.            Expires June 11, 2009                 [Page 6]


Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   When the callee's monitor judges that the callee and/or callee's UA
   is available for call-completion, the callee's monitor selects
   (usually) one request to be the next caller to execute call-
   completion to the callee.  The callee's monitor sends a call-
   completion event update to the selected caller's agent's
   subscription, telling it to begin execution of call-completion (CC
   recall).

   When the caller's agent receives this update, it calls the caller's
   UA or otherwise tests whether the caller is available to take
   advantage of call-completion.  If the caller is available, the agent
   directs the caller's UA to make again the call to the callee (CC
   call).  This call is identified as a call-completion call so it can
   be given precedence in reaching the callee's UA.

   If the caller is not available on the receipt of the ready for recall
   notification, the CC agent suspends the CC request at the CC monitor.
   The CC agent resumes the CC request once the caller becomes available
   for CC again.  On the receipt of the suspension from the top CC agent
   in the queue, the CC monitor shall perform the callee monitoring for
   the next not suspended CC agent in the queue.  On the receipt of the
   resume from the previously suspended top CC agent in the queue the CC
   monitor shall perform the callee monitoring for this top CC agent.

   When the call completion call fails there are two possible options:
   the CC feature has to be activated again, or CC remains activated and
   the original CC request retains its position in the queue (retain
   option), possibly with the possibility to update the subscription.

4.2.  Differences from SS7

   SIP call completion differs in some ways from the CCBS and CCNR
   features of SS7 (which is used in the PSTN).  For ease of
   understanding, we enumerate some of the differences here.

   SIP call completion does not fundamentally distinguish "call
   completion on no reply" (CCNR) from "call completion on busy
   subscriber" (CCBS), because the network does not need to make a
   distinction, and given the potential complexity of SIP routing,
   agents in the network may not be able to.  However, SIP call
   completion operations MAY carry an 'm' parameter to label call
   completion actions as to the original cause of the failure.
   Currently, the only defined values are "BS" and "NR".  Other values
   may be defined in the future, and SIP call completion operations
   should succeed even if the 'm' parameter is omitted.  However, in
   these latter cases, interoperation with SS7 is likely to be impaired.

   Due to the complex forking situations that are possible in SIP, a



Worley, et al.            Expires June 11, 2009                 [Page 7]


Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   call may "fail" from the point of view of the user and yet have a
   "success" response from SIP's point of view.  (This can happen even
   in simple situations: e.g., a call to a busy user that fails over to
   his voicemail receives a SIP success response, even though the caller
   may consider it "busy subscriber".)  Thus, the calling user must be
   able to invoke call completion even when the original call appeared
   to succeed.  To support this, the caller's agent (and to a lesser
   degree the callee's monitor) must record successful calls as well as
   unsuccessful calls.

   In SIP, only the caller's UA or service a system on the originating
   side and the callee's UA or service a system on the terminating side
   needs specifically to support call completion in order that call
   completion work successfully between the UAs.  Intermediate SIP
   systems (proxies or B2BUAs) do not need specifically to implement
   call completion; they only need to be transparent to the usual range
   of SIP messages.

   Due to flexibility needed to support legacy systems that are not
   optimized to support call completion, there are a larger number of
   situations in SIP where call completion services are offered but
   eventually cannot be successfully executed.


5.  Detailed Description of the Call-Completion Mechanism

5.1.  General

   Many of the actions of call completion can be taken with the actor
   possessing greater or lesser information about the particular
   situation, depending on the specific messages involved.  This
   complexity is due to a number of factors: the complexities of SIP
   forking, interoperation with other networks (specifically SS7), the
   availability and use of optional SIP features to assist CC, and any
   future enhancements of CC (either in SIP or SS7).  Thus, in some of
   the following descriptions, several alternative actions are presented
   based on the information that the actor possesses.  CC
   implementations MUST properly choose between the described
   alternatives, and MAY augment those alternatives based on any
   additional information they possess.

5.2.  Caller's Call-Completion Agent

   The call-completion architecture augments each caller's UA (or UAC)
   which wishes to be able to use the call-completion features with a
   "call-completion agent".

   An agent may be an integrated part of the UA, a separate end-system,



Worley, et al.            Expires June 11, 2009                 [Page 8]


Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   integrated with a proxy serving the UA, or a function of an
   application server that provides these services to many UAs.

   An agent may service more than one UA as a collective group if it is
   common that a caller or population of users will be shared between
   the UAs, and especially if the UAs share an AOR.

   The caller's agent must be capable of performing a number of
   functions relative to the UA(s).  The method by which it does so is
   outside the scope of this document, but an example method is
   described in appendix A.

   The agent monitors calls made from the UA(s) in order to determine
   their destinations and (potentially) their final response statuses,
   and the Call-Info headers of final responses and any HERFP
   provisional responses.

   The callers using the UA(s) can indicate to the agent when they wish
   to avail themselves of CC for a recently-made call which failed to
   reach their chosen destination.

   The agent monitors the status of the UA(s) to determine when they are
   available to be used for a CC call.

   The agent can communicate to the UA(s) that CC recall is in progress
   and to inquire if the relevant calling user is available for the CC
   call.

   The agent can order the UA(s) at which the relevant calling user is
   available to generate a CC call to the callee.

5.3.  Callee's Call-Completion Monitor

   The call-completion architecture augments each callee's UA (or UAS)
   which wishes to be able to be the target of the call-completion
   features with a "call-completion monitor".

   A monitor may be an integrated part of the UA, a separate end-system,
   integrated with a proxy serving the UA, or a function of an
   application server that provides these services to many UAs.

   A monitor may service more than one UA as a collective group if it is
   common that a callee or population of users will be shared between
   the UAs, and especially if the UAs share an AOR.

   The callee's monitor must be capable of performing a number of
   functions relative to the UA(s).  The method by which it does so is
   outside the scope of this document, but an example method is



Worley, et al.            Expires June 11, 2009                 [Page 9]


Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   described in appendix B.

   The monitor monitors calls made to the UA(s) in order to determine
   their callers and (potentially) their final response statuses.

   The monitor may supply the callee's UAS(s) with Call-Info header
   values for final responses and any HERFP provisional responses.

   The monitor receives SUBSCRIBEs for the call-completion event package
   directed to the URIs serviced by the UA(s) and any URIs that the
   monitor provides for use in Call-Info headers.

   The callees using the UA(s) may be able to indicate to the monitor
   when they wish to receive CC calls.

   The monitor has a method of monitoring the status of the UA(s) and/or
   their users to determine when they are "available" for a CC call,
   that is, in a suitable state to receive a CC call.  In a system with
   rich presence information, the presence information may directly
   provide this status.  In a more restricted system, this determination
   MAY depend on the mode of the CC call in question, which is provided
   by the 'm' parameter.  E.g., a UA is considered available for CCBS
   ("m=BS") when it is not busy, but a UA is considered available for
   CCNR ("m=CR") when it becomes not busy after being busy with an
   established call.

   The monitor maintains information about the set of INVITEs that have
   been received by the UA(s) that may not have been considered
   successful by the calling user.  In practice, the monitor may remove
   knowledge about an incoming dialog from its set if its CC policy
   establishes that the dialog is no longer eligible for CC requests.

   The CC monitor MAY provide a URI to which the CC agent can subscribe
   for call completion.  When applicable, the CC URI SHALL be sent to
   the CC agent in the Call Info header of an appropriate response
   message to the initial INVITE, according to the following scheme:

   Call-Info:monitor-URI;purpose=call-completion;m=XX

   The 'm' parameter defines the "mode" of call completion and can
   currently have the values 'BS' for CCBS and 'NR' for CCNR.  It is
   possible that other values will be defined in future.  It is also
   allowed to omit the 'm' parameter entirely.  Implementations MUST
   accept CC operations in which the 'm' parameter is missing or has an
   unknown value, and perform them as well as is possible in their
   environment (which is likely to be with degraded service, especially
   in interoperation with SS7).

5.4.  The Original Call Is Made

   The caller's UA sends an INVITE to a request URI.  One or more forks
   of this request reach one or more of the callee's UAs.  By
   hypothesis, none of the callee's UAs returns a success response, as
   otherwise, call completion services would not be needed for this
   call.

   However, the caller's INVITE might succeed at some other UA that the
   calling user considers insufficient to satisfy his needs.  E.g., a
   call that is not answered by the callee user may connect to the
   callee user's voicemail server.  Eventually, the INVITE fails, or the
   resulting dialog(s) are terminated.

   The caller's agent MUST record the From URI and MAY record the final
   request status that the caller's UA received and the contents of
   Call-Info headers of final responses and any HERFP provisional
   responses.

   The callee's monitor MUST record the From URI and MAY record the
   final request status(es) returned by the callee's UA(s).  The
   callee's monitor MAY insert a Call-Info header with "purpose=call-
   completion".

   The Call- Info header positively indicates that CC is available for
   this failed fork of the call.  The "m=NR" parameter indicates that it
   failed due to no-response, the "m=BS" parameter indicates that it
   failed due to busy subscriber, which is useful for PSTN interworking
   and assessing presence information in the callee's monitor.

   The callee's monitor MAY insert a URI in the Call-Info header is the
   where the caller's agent should subscribe for call-completion
   processing.  Ideally, it is a globally-routable URI for the callee's
   monitor.  In practice, it may be the callee's AOR, and the SUBSCRIBE
   will be routed to the callee's monitor only because it specifies
   "Event: call-completion".

   Note that the caller's UA may not receive any response from any of
   the callee's UA(s), as the final response returned to the caller's UA
   may have been from a fork that reached a UA that was not the
   callee's.

5.5.  Call-Completion Is Activated

   The calling user indicates to the caller's agent that he wishes to
   invoke call-completion services on the recent call.  Note that from
   the SIP point of view, the INVITE may be successful, but from the
   user's point of view, the call may be unsuccessful.  E.g., the call



Worley, et al.            Expires June 11, 2009                [Page 11]


Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   may have connected to the callee's voicemail, which would return a
   200 status to the INVITE but from the caller's point of view is "no
   reply".

   CC activation is done by sending a SUBSCRIBE to all known monitor
   URIs.  These can be provided by the Call-Info header in the response
   to the INVITE.  These can also be provided by any HERFP provisional
   responses that are received.  (More about that below.)  Additionally,
   the caller's agent needs to include the original request-URI in its
   set of monitor URIs, because the call may have forked to additional
   callees whose responses the caller has not seen.  (A SUBSCRIBE to the
   request-URI alone is used in cases where the caller's agent has not
   received or cannot remember any monitor URI.)  The caller's agent may
   add an 'm' parameter to these URIs.  The 'm' parameter SHOULD have
   the value of the the 'm' parameter in the Call-Info header, if a
   Call-Info header was received.

   The SUBSCRIBE should have headers to optimize its routing.  In
   particular, it SHOULD contain "Request-Disposition: parallel, no-
   cancel", and an Accept-Contact header to eliminate callee UAs that
   are not acceptable to the calling user.

   The callee's monitor(s) that receive the SUBSCRIBE establish
   subscriptions.  These subscriptions represent the caller's agent's
   request for call-completion services.  The callee's monitor must be
   prepared to receive multiple forks of a single SUBSCRIBE, and should
   respond 482 (Merged Request) to all but one fork.  The callee's
   monitor must be prepared to receive SUBSCRIBEs regarding original
   calls that it has no knowledge of, and should respond 404 (Not Found)
   to such SUBSCRIBEs.  The monitor may apply additional restrictions as
   to which caller's agents may subscribe.

   The caller's agent must be prepared to receive multiple responses to
   the SUBSCRIBE and to have multiple subscriptions established.  The
   agent must also be prepared to have the SUBSCRIBE fail, in which
   case, CC cannot be invoked for this original call.

   The call-completion event package returns various information to the
   caller's agent, but the vital datum is that it contains an indication
   about the cc-stae of the agent's request, which in the beginning is
   'queued'.  The notification MAY also contain also a URI which should
   be used for suspension requestst.  Ideally, it is a globally-routable
   URI for the callee's monitor.  In practice, it may be the callee's
   AOR, and the SUBSCRIBE will be routed to the callee's monitor only
   because it specifies "Event: call-completion".

5.6.  The Call-Completion Request Is Queued

   The continuation of the caller's agent's subscription indicates that
   the caller's agent is prepared to initiate the CC call when it is
   selected by the callee's monitor.  If the caller's agent becomes
   unwilling to initiate the CC call (e.g., because the calling user has
   deactivated CC or because the caller's UA becomes busy), the caller's
   agent must terminate or suspend the subscription(s).  If the caller's
   agent later becomes willing again to initiate CC for the original
   call, it may resume the suspended subscription(s) or initiate new
   one(s).

   If the callee's monitor becomes aware that, according to its policy,
   the original call referenced by a subscription will never be selected
   for call-completion, it should terminate the subscription.  (And
   respond to any attempt to start a new subscription for that original
   call with 404.)

5.7.  Call-Completion Is Invoked

   The callee's monitor has a policy regarding when and how it selects
   CC requests to be activated.  This policy may take into account the
   type of the requests (CCNR vs. CCBS), the state of the callee's
   UA(s), the order in which the original calls arrived, and any
   previous CC attempts for the same original call.  Usually the
   callee's monitor will choose only one CC request for activation at a
   time, but if the callee's UA(s) can support multiple calls, it may
   choose more than one.

   The callee's monitor changes the "call completion active" datum for
   the chosen caller's agent from false to true.  This triggers a
   notification for the agent's subscription.  The caller's agent
   receives the notification with the CC-state set to 'ready'.  The
   notification MAY also contain also a URI which should be used in the
   CC call.  In practice, this may be the AOR of the callee.

   The caller's agent then terminates or suspends all other CC
   subscriptions for this original call, and all CC subscriptions for
   all other original calls, in order to prevent any other CC requests
   from this caller from being activated.  The agent then determines
   whether the calling user is available for the CC call, usually by
   calling the caller's UA(s).  If the calling user is not available,
   the caller's agent indicates this to the callee's monitor by
   suspending the CC subscription.

   If the calling user is available, the caller's agent causes the
   caller's UA to generate a new INVITE to the URI specified in the
   NOTIFY, or if there was no such URI or if the caller's agent cannot



Worley, et al.            Expires June 11, 2009                [Page 13]


Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   remember it, it may use the original request-URI.  The caller adds
   the 'm' parameters (if possible), to specify CC processing.  If the
   caller's agent cannot remember the URIs returned in the Call-Info
   header and the call-completion NOTIFY, it uses the request-URI of the
   original INVITE.  This may not provide ideal routing, but in simple
   cases it is likely to reach the desired callee/callee's monitor.

   The callee's UA(s) and any associated proxies may give the CC call
   precedence over non-CC calls.  The callee's monitor supervises the
   receiving of the CC call.  If the CC call does not arrive at the
   callee's UA(s) promptly, the monitor will withdraw CC activation from
   the caller's agent by changing the value of its CC active datum to
   false.  Similarly, if the CC call fails, the monitor will withdraw CC
   activation.  Depending on its policy, the same original call may be
   selected again for CC activation at a later time.  If the CC call
   succeeds, the monitor will also withdraw CC activation, but the
   original call will never again be selected for CC activation (and in
   practice, can be deleted from the monitor's records).

   Once the CC call has failed, or if it has succeeded, once the CC call
   has been terminated, the callee's monitor's policy may select another
   CC request for activation.

5.8.  The Caller Becomes Busy

   If the caller is found to be busy previous to or on receipt of the CC
   recall, then the CC request shall be suspended until the caller
   becomes not busy again.  To suspend the CC request, the CC agent
   shall send a PUBLISH request to each CC monitor, giving the PIDF
   state 'closed' for the caller's identity as presentity.

   Each PUBLISH SHOULD be sent to the URI as received in the NOTIFY, or
   within the corresponding SUBSCRIBE dialog, or if that is not
   possible, to the corresponding monitor URI as received in the Call-
   Info header, or if one is not available, the Contact address of the
   subscription.  If a queue entry is suspended, it is stepped over
   during CC processing at the CC monitor.

   When the caller is no longer busy, then the CC request shall be
   resumed as follows.  The CC agent shall send to each CC monitor a
   PUBLISH request informing about the PIDF state 'open' but otherwise
   constructed as the suspend PUBLISH request.  Each PUBLISH SHOULD be
   sent to the URI as received in the NOTIFY, or within the
   corresponding SUBSCRIBE dialog, or if that is not possible, to the
   corresponding monitor URI as received in the Call-Info header, or if
   one is not available, the Contact address of the subscription.

   When a CC request becomes resumed, then, if the callee is not busy



Worley, et al.            Expires June 11, 2009                [Page 14]


Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   and there is no entry in the CC queue which is currently being
   processed, the CC monitor shall process the queue as described above.
   When a CC request becomes resumed, then, if the callee becomes not
   busy again and there is no entry in the CC queue which is currently
   being processed, the CC monitor shall process the destination B queue
   as described above.

   If the processing of a CC request results in suspending that CC
   request, the monitor shall stop the recall timer and attempt to
   process the next CC request in the queue.

   In the case where the CC agent has sent several CC suspension
   requests to different CC monitors and the caller becomes not busy
   again, the CC agent shall send a CC resumption request to each CC
   monitor for which there is a suspended CC request.

5.9.  Data Provided in the Call-Completion Event Package

   The syntax of the call-completion event package, which has media type
   "application/call-completion", is described in section 8.

   The most important information to be provided by the call-completion
   event package is the CC activation datum, "state", whose value is
   "queued" (meaning that this CC request has not been chosen for
   activation) or "ready" (meaning that it has).

   The callee's monitor SHOULD provide a URI to be used for the CC
   recall in the "URI" datum if "state" is "ready".

   The event package may provide information about the callee's
   monitor's policy.  In particular, like in the PSTN, the "service-
   retention" datum gives an indication of the "service retention"
   attribute, which indicates whether the CC request can be continued to
   a later time if the call-completion call fails due to the callee's
   UA(s) being busy.

   If the callee has a caller-queuing facility, the callee's monitor may
   want to treat the call-completion queue as part of the queuing
   facility, and include in the event package information regarding the
   state of the queue.  How this information is conveyed is left for
   further standardization.

   The original call is an ordinary INVITE.  It fails due to no-response
   (ring-no-answer).  In this case, the callee's governing proxy



Worley, et al.            Expires June 11, 2009                [Page 16]


Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   generates a 487 response because the proxy canceled the INVITE to the
   UA when it rang too long without an answer.  The 487 response carries
   a Call-Info header with "purpose=call-completion".  The Call- Info
   header positively indicates that CC is available for this failed fork
   of the call.  The "m=NR" parameter indicates that it failed due to
   no-response, which is useful for PSTN interworking and assessing
   presence information in the callee's monitor.

   The URI in the Call-Info header is the where the caller's agent
   should subscribe for call-completion processing.  Ideally, it is a
   globally-routable URI for the callee's monitor.  In practice, it may
   be the callee's AOR, and the SUBSCRIBE will be routed to the callee's
   monitor only because it specifies "Event: call-completion".

   CC activation is done by sending a SUBSCRIBE to all known monitor
   URIs.  These can be provided by the Call-Info header in the response
   to the INVITE.  These can also be provided by any HERFP provisional
   responses that are received.

   Additionally, the caller's agent needs to include the original
   request-URI in its set of monitor URIs, because the call may have
   forked to additional callees whose responses the caller has not seen.
   (A SUBSCRIBE to the request-URI alone is used in cases where the
   caller's agent has not received or cannot remember any monitor URI.)

   The caller's agent adds to these URIs an 'm' parameter (if possible).
   In this case, the caller's agent forks the SUBSCRIBE to two
   destinations, with appropriate Request-Disposition.  The first
   SUBSCRIBE is to the URI from Call-Info.

   The second SUBSCRIBE is to the original request-URI, and reaches the
   same callee's monitor.  Because it has the same Call-Id as the
   SUBSCRIBE that has already reached the monitor, the monitor rejects
   it with a 482, thus avoiding redundant subscriptions.

   The initial NOTIFY for the successful SUBSCRIBE has "state: queued"
   in its body.  Eventually, this caller is selected for CC, and is
   informed of this via a NOTIFY containing "state: ready".  This NOTIFY
   carries a URI to which the CC INVITE should be sent.  In practice,
   this may be the AOR of the callee.

   The caller generates a new INVITE to the URI specified in the NOTIFY,
   or if there was no such URI or if the caller's agent cannot remember
   it, it may use the original request-URI.  The caller adds the 'm'
   parameters (if possible), to specify CC processing.

7.  Call Completion Event Package

   This section specifies the call-completion event package, in
   accordance with section 4.4 of [RFC3265].

7.1.  Event Package Name

   The SIP Events specification requires package definitions to specify
   the name of their package or template-package.  The name of this
   package is "call-completion".  This value appears in the Event and
   Allow-events header fields.

7.2.  Event Package Parameters

   No package-specific Event header parameters are defined for this
   event package.

7.3.  SUBSCRIBE Bodies

   [RFC3265] requires package definitions to define the usage, if any,
   of bodies in SUBSCRIBE requests.

   The SUBSCRIBE request MAY contain an Accept header field.  If no such
   header field is present, it has a default value of "application/
   call-completion".  If the header field is present, it MUST include
   "application/call-completion".

   A SUBSCRIBE request for a call-completion package MAY contain a body.
   This body defines a filter to be applied to the subscription.  Filter
   documents are not specified in this document, and may be the subject
   of future standardization activity.

   A SUBSCRIBE request requests call-completion information regarding
   calls recently made from the same originator to the destination UA(s)
   serviced by the notifier.  Calls are defined to be "from the same
   originator" if the URI-part of the From header value in the INVITE is
   the same as the URI-part of the From header value in the SUBSCRIBE.
   (The other parts of the From header values are not considered, as
   they do not have canonical representations or a defined equality
   comparison.)

   John: Is this intended to be deleted from the final document?  If so,
   fine.  If not, I am not sure this captures the true reason for
   leaving out the tag, say.

   Dale: I had not considered that the tag must obviously be left out.
   I was more concerned with the display-name, of which there are many
   formats, and there are no clear rules for comparison or canonical

   representation.

7.4.  Subscribe Duration

   [RFC3265] requires package definitions to define a default value for
   subscription durations, and to discuss reasonable choices for
   durations when they are explicitly specified.

   If a SUBSCRIBE does not explicitly request a duration, the default
   requested duration is 3600 seconds, as that is the highest timer
   value recommended for the call completion services in ETSI and ITU-T.
   It is RECOMMENDED that subscribers request, and that notifiers grant,
   a subscription time of at least 3600 seconds.

   If a notifier can determine that, according to its policy, after
   certain duration the requested subscription cannot proceed to "ready"
   state, it SHOULD reduce the granted subscription time to that
   duration.  If a notifier can determine that, according to its policy,
   the requested subscription cannot proceed to "ready" state, it should
   refuse the subscription.  For example, in many cases when resuming a
   subscription the granted duration will be less than 3600 seconds.

7.5.  NOTIFY Bodies

   [RFC3265] requires package definitions to describe the allowed set if
   body types in NOTIFY requests, and to specify the default value to be
   used when there is no Accept header field in the SUBSCRIBE request A
   NOTIFY for a call-completion package MUST contain a body that
   describes the call-completion states.

   As described in [RFC3265], the NOTIFY message will contain bodies
   that describe the state of the subscribed resource.  This body is in
   a format listed in the Accept header field of the SUBSCRIBE, or in a
   package-specific default format if the Accept header field was
   omitted from the SUBSCRIBE.

   In this event package, the body of the notification contains a call-
   completion document.  All subscribers and notifiers MUST support the
   "application/call-completion" data format described in section 8.
   The SUBSCRIBE request MAY contain an Accept header field.  If no such
   header field is present, it has a default value of "application/
   call-completion".  If the header field is present, it MUST include
   "application/call-completion".  Of course, the notifications
   generated by the server MUST be in one of the formats specified in
   the Accept header field in the SUBSCRIBE request.

Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


7.6.  Subscriber Generation of SUBSCRIBE Requests

   Subscribers MUST generate SUBSCRIBE requests when they want to
   subscribe to the call-completion event package at the terminating
   side in order to receive call-completion notifications.  The
   generation of SUBSCRIBE requests MAY imply the usage of call-
   completion service specific timers.  An example of such an
   implementation can be found in 3GPP TS 24.642.

   Issue: timers have to be specified, a timer section has to be added.

7.7.  Notifier Processing of SUBSCRIBE Requests

   Upon receiving a subscription refresh, the notifier MUST set the
   "expires" parameter of the Subscription-State header to the current
   remaining duration of the subscription regardless of the value
   received in the Expires header (if present) of the subscription
   refresh.

   If a subscription is not successful because the call-completion queue
   has reached the maximum allowed number of entries (short term
   denial), the notifier MUST send a 480 Temporarily Unavailable
   response to the subscriber.  If a subscription is not successful
   because an error has occurred that prevents and will continue to
   prevent the call-completion service (long term denial), the notifier
   MUST send a 403 Forbidden response to the subscriber.

   [Need to insert text about handling if there is no call to be
   completed.]

   A notifier MAY receive multiple forks of the same SUBSCRIBE.
   (Multiple forks are, as always, identified by having the same
   Call-Id.)  In such a case, the notifier SHOULD reject all but one of
   the SUBSCRIBEs with a 482 Merged Request response (unless some other
   failure response applies).

   The call-completion information can be sensitive.  Therefore, all
   subscriptions SHOULD be handled with consideration of the issues
   discussed in Section 9.

7.8.  Notifier Generation of NOTIFY Requests

   Notifiers MUST generate NOTIFY requests when a call-completion
   service condition occurs at the terminating side that needs to be
   sent towards the originating side.  A NOTIFY that is sent with non-
   zero expiration MUST contain the "call-completion-state" parameter.
   The parameter's value MUST be "queued" if the call-completion request
   represented by the subscription is not at this time selected by the



Worley, et al.            Expires June 11, 2009                [Page 20]


Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   monitor for CC recall, and the parameter's value MUST be "ready" if
   the request is at this time selected by the monitor for CC recall.

   A NOTIFY sent with a zero expiration (e.g., as a confirmation of a
   request to unsubscribe) MAY contain the "call-completion-state"
   parameter.

   When the callee's monitor selects the request for CC recall, the
   notifier MUST send a NOTIFY to the subscription of the selected
   request.  This NOTIFY MUST contain the "call-completion-state"
   parameter set to "ready".

   When the callee's monitor withdraws selection of the request for CC
   recall (e.g., because the agent has not initiated the CC recall
   INVITE promptly, or because the agent has suspended the request from
   being considered for CC recall), the notifier MUST send a NOTIFY to
   the subscription of the selected request.  This NOTIFY MUST contain
   the "call-completion-state" parameter set to "queued".

   If the call-completion subscription was successful and the retention
   option is supported at the callee, the NOTIFY MUST contain the
   "retention-option" parameter.

7.9.  Subscriber Processing of NOTIFY Requests

   The subscriber processing of NOTIFY requests MAY trigger additional
   CC service procedures, as described in this document and possibly in
   other documents (e.g., 3GPP TS 24.642).

7.10.  Handling of Forked Requests

   Forked requests are expected to be common for the call-completion
   event type.  The subscriber MUST be prepared to process NOTIFY
   requests from multiple notifiers and to coordinate its processing of
   the information obtained from them in accordance with the procedures
   in this document.

7.11.  Rate of Notifications

   The call completion service typically involves a single notification
   per notifier and per subscription but MAY involve several
   notifications separated by a call completion call that failed due to
   a busy call completion target.  Typically, notifications will be
   separated by at least tens of seconds.  Notifiers SHOULD NOT generate
   more than two notifications in any ten-second interval.

   John: A common situation might be a successful subscription to CCBS,
   resulting in an initial NOTIFY "queued", and then the callee becomes

   free a couple seconds later, resulting a second NOTIFY "ready".
   Similarly following resume.  It does not seem reasonable to suppress
   or delay that second NOTIFY.  I think the recommendation is too
   severe.  Perhaps NOTIFYs in response to SUBSCRIBEs need to be
   excluded from this.

   Dale: I'm quite willing to modify this prescription.  I only included
   it because RFC 3265 says that there must be a prescription; I believe
   that if a monitor generate NOTIFYs only in response to relevant
   events, its NOTIFY rate will be low enough.

   However each of in the two cases you mention, there are only two
   NOTIFYs, so the prescription as stated cannot be violation, since a
   violation requires 3 NOTIFYs.

7.12.  State Agents

   State agents have no defined role in the handling of the call-
   completion package.


8.  Call-completion information format

   The following syntax specification uses the Augmented Backus-Naur
   Form (ABNF) as described in RFC 2234.  The formal syntax for the
   application/call-completion MIME type is described below.  In
   general, the call-completion body is to be interpreted in the same
   way as SIP headers: (1) the names of the lines are case-insensitive,
   (2) the lines can be continued over line boundaries if the succeeding
   lines start with horizontal white space, (3) lines with unknown names
   are to be ignored, and (4) names starting with "X-" are reserved for
   non-standardized uses.  Two lines with the same name MUST NOT be
   present, except when specifically permitted.

   call-completion = +(cc-header CRLF)

   cc-header = cc-state / cc-service-retention / cc-URI / extension-
   header

   The above rules whose names start with "cc-" are described below.
   Other rules are described in RFC 3261.

8.1.  call-completion-state

   The cc-state line indicates the call-completion status of a
   particular user with an entry in a call-completion queue.  It MUST be
   present unless the expiration time indicated in the NOTIFY is zero.




Worley, et al.            Expires June 11, 2009                [Page 22]


Internet-Draft               Call Completion               December 2008


   cc-state = "state" HCOLON ( "queued" / "ready" )

   The value "queued" indicates that a user's entry in the call-
   completion queue is not selected for CC recall.  The value "ready"
   indicates that a user's entry in the call-completion queue has been
   selected for CC recall.

8.2.  service-retention

   The service-retention line indicates the support of the retain
   option.  The retain option, if supported at the callee, will maintain
   the entry in the call-completion queue, if a call-completion call has
   failed due to destination busy condition.  If present, this parameter
   indicates that the retain option is supported, otherwise it is not
   supported.  This parameter MAY be present in NOTIFY requests.

   cc-service-retention = "service-retention" HCOLON "true"

8.3.  cc-URI

   The cc-URI line provides a URI (possibly in the form of a name-addr)
   which the agent SHOULD use as the request-URI of the CC recall
   INVITE.  It SHOULD NOT be provided and MUST be ignored unless the cc-
   state value is "ready".  The URI SHOULD be globally routable.  The
   syntax provides for generic-params in the value, but this document
   defines no such parameters.  Parameters that are not understood by
   the subscriber MUST be ignored.

   cc-URI = "URI" HCOLON (name-addr / addr-spec) *(SEMI generic-param)


9.  Security Considerations

   The use of the CC facility allows the caller's agent to determine
   some status information regarding the callee.  The information is
   confined to a busy/not-busy indication, and is to a considerable
   degree protected by the necessity of presenting the Call-Id of a
   recent call to the callee in order to obtain information.

   The CC facility may enhance the effectiveness of SPIT by the
   following technique: The caller makes calls to a group of targets.
   The caller then requests CC for the calls that do not connect to the
   targets.  The CC calls resulting are probably more likely to reach
   the targets than original calls to a further group of targets.

10.  IANA Considerations

10.1.  SIP Event Package Registration for call-completion

   This specification registers an event package, based on the
   registration procedures defined in .  The followings is the
   information required for such a registration:

   Package Name: call-completion

   Package or Template-Package: This is a package.

   Published Document: RFC XXXX(Note for RFC Editor: Please fill in XXXX
   with the RFC number of this specification).

   Person to Contact: Martin Huelsemann, martin.huelsemann@telekom.de

   MIME subtype name: call-completion

   Required parameters: none.

   Optional parameters: none.

10.3.  SIP/SIPS URI parameter 'm'

   This RFC adds a URI parameter 'm'.  It is used to identify that an
   INVITE request is a CC call, or to further identify that a SUBSCRIBE
   request is for the call-completion event package.  The parameter may
   have a value that describes the type of the call-completion
   operation, as described in this RFC.  This adds a row to the registry
   SIP/SIPS URI Parameters:

   Parameter Name   Predefined Values   Reference

   --------------   -----------------   ---------

   m                Yes                 [this RFC]

10.4.  'purpose=call-completion' header parameter for Call-Info

   This RFC adds a new predefined value "call-completion" for the
   "purpose" header parameter of the Call-Info header.  This modifies

Appendix A.  Example Caller's Agent

   This section outlines how an autonomous caller's agent can operate
   using only standard SIP features to interact with the caller's UA.
   This example is suitable only as a learning aid, as its performance
   is poor.

   The agent monitors calls made from the UA(s) by subscribing to the
   dialog event package of the UA(s).  Since this does not give the
   agent access to the Call-Info headers of responses, the agent is
   limited to using the original request URI for making CC requests.

   The UA(s) or their proxy routes calls made with either of two special
   dial sequences to the agent, which interprets the INVITEs as
   indications to make a CC request with BS or NR mode for the latest
   call made by the UA.

   The agent monitors the status of the UA(s) for availability to be
   used for a CC call by examining the dialog events.

   The agent indicates to the UA(s) that CC recall is in progress by
   making call to the UA(s).  If the UA is answered, the agent assumes
   that the caller is available and plays pre-recorded audio to indicate
   that CC recall is in progress.

   After playing the pre-recorded audio, the caller's agent uses REFER
   to order the UA to make the CC call to the callee.


Appendix B.  Example Callee's Monitor

   This section outlines how an autonomous callee's monitor can operate
   using only standard SIP features to interact with the callee's UA.
   This example is suitable only as a learning aid, as its performance
   is poor.

   The monitor monitors calls made to the UA(s) by subscribing to the
   UA(s) dialog events.  This enables it to determine their Call-Id's
   and their final response statuses.

   The monitor does not supply Call-Info header values.  The proxy for
   the UA(s) routes to the monitor any SUBSCRIBEs for the call-
   completion event package directed to the URIs serviced by the UA(s).

   The callees cannot indicate to the monitor when they wish to receive
   CC calls.

   The monitor monitors the status of the UA(s) to determine when they
   are in a suitable state to receive a CC call by watching the busy/
   not-busy status of the UA(s): a UA is available for CCBS when it is
   not busy, but a UA is available for CCNR when it becomes not busy
   after being busy with an established call.
