SBC 1000/2000 4.1.x : Managing Call Admission Control Profile


A Call Admission Profile provides SIP level call admission control by regulating call attempts per second, and the rate of new invite/non-invite sessions. Once the SBC limits are met, SIP will no longer accept/issue new invite or non-invite sessions (except 911 calls). This feature protects the SBC from overload conditions (an overload condition is detected if the average rate of invite and non-invite sessions exceeds the pre-determined limit or the CPU threshold is exceeded). It also prevents internal/external DOS attacks in an otherwise normal network using overload detection and resource leaks/malfunction detection.

When rejecting calls or sessions on account of admission-control, SBC sends "480 Temporarily Unavailable" response to the peers.

This functionality applies to SIP calls only.
