This document provides an overview of a SIP-based Distributed Call Signaling (DCS) architecture to support carrier class packet-based voice, video, and other real time multimedia services. Companion documents [3,4,5,6,7] address a specific set of SIP 2.0 protocol extensions and usage rules that are necessary to implement the DCS architecture in an interoperable fashion.
