Refer to Phone Number
This feature allows the CSP to support a telephone number in an outbound REFER method.
REFER is a SIP method as defined by RFC 3261 that indicates that the recipient (identified by the Request-URI) should contact a third party using the contact information provided in the request. Refer-To is a request header field with in the REFER method as defined by RFC 3515.
Prior to this feature, the CSP supports only the SIP URL in the Refer-To header. The host had to provide the username and host name in the PPL Event Request method to generate the REFER. By default CSP fills in the port number, in case the host has not supplied it. There was no provision for the host to use a telephone number in Refer-To header.
With this feature, the CSP supports telephone number in an outbound REFER method.
Important! The telephone number supplied by the host is not validated by CSP.
The CSP SIP Stack allows the host to supply the telephone number in an outbound REFER method. The username TLV (0x291E) is optional in the PPL Event Request to generate REFER method.
Only host name TLV (0x2920) will be mandatory. The CSP will not fill the port number by default. To refer to a telephone number the host supplies only the host name TLV containing the telephone number. To refer to a SIP URL the host has to provide the host name TLV and username TLV.
The host name TLV supplied by the user for an outbound refer to a telephone number.
Hostname (0x2920): 080-23310818
