Abstract

IP-based multimedia communication systems like SIP [1] and H.323 [2] have the concept of a "call identifier" that is globally unique. The identifier is intended to represent an end-to-end communication session from the originating device to the terminating device. Such an identifier is useful for troubleshooting, session tracking, and so forth.
