RSVP

RSVP requires both Location RSVP setup (LBM) and IOS global, interface and MTP configuration for RSVP and for QoS. RSVP is used for Voice and Video by CUCM and CME.

CUCM RSVP reservations use the end device MTP from the assigned MRGL. The two device MTP’s request the reservation (uni-directional), therefore two reservation requests. CUCM instructs the MTP’s via SCCP.

Setup

For CUCM Locations, the LBM service must be active (as it would for Location Based Enhanced CAC). The Links section of the Location configuration for a particular location must have the Audio, Video & Immersive Bandwidth set to “UNLIMITED”, if any other value is configured between regions then E-CAC will take place and RSVP will not. In Location RSVP Settings section, use the Modify Setting(s) to Other Locations section to set the RSVP setting for a remote location. The following settings are available:

  • No Reservation
  • Optional (Video Desired)
  • Mandatory
  • Mandatory (Video Desired)

A successful RSVP reservation will be required for the call to progress if either of the Mandatory settings ate chosen. The options with “Video Desired” mean Video is optional, so if the RSVP reservation succeeds for voice and not for video the call will continue as an audio only call.  The Service Parameter “Default inter-location RSVP Policy  Required Field” by default is configured as “No Reservation”; meaning that Location based E-CAC will be used.

Verification

IOS

sh ip rsvp interface

RTMT

Troubleshooting

IOS

debug ip rsvp messages
debug ip rsvp signalling (includes resv and path debug)
debug sccp messages
debug sccp packets
debug call rsvp-sync events
debug call rsvp-sync func-trace 
debug ip rsvp *
debug sccp all / *
