Within the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) [RFC3261], "A Framework for Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) User Agent Profile Delivery" [RFC6080] and "A Framework for SIP Session Policies" [RFC6794] define mechanisms to convey session policies and configuration information from a network server to a user agent. An important piece of the information conveyed to the user agent relates to the media properties of the SIP sessions set up by the user agent. Examples for these media properties are the codecs and media types used, the media-intermediaries to be traversed, or the maximum bandwidth available for media streams.
