Abstract

This document defines Signaling Compression (SigComp), a solution for compressing messages generated by application protocols such as the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) (RFC 3261) and the Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) (RFC 2326). The architecture and prerequisites of SigComp are outlined, along with the format of the SigComp message.

Abstract

   This document defines Signaling Compression (SigComp), a solution for

   compressing messages generated by application protocols such as the

   Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) (RFC 3261) and the Real Time

   Streaming Protocol (RTSP) (RFC 2326).  The architecture and

   prerequisites of SigComp are outlined, along with the format of the

   SigComp message.

   Decompression functionality for SigComp is provided by a Universal

   Decompressor Virtual Machine (UDVM) optimized for the task of running

   decompression algorithms.  The UDVM can be configured to understand

   the output of many well-known compressors such as DEFLATE (RFC-1951).
