Technical Summary

    SIP has become a widely-used standard among many service providers,
    vendors, and end users.  Although there are many different standards
    for measuring the performance of signaling protocols, none of them
    specifically address SIP.

    The scope of this document is limited to the definitions of a
    standard set of metrics for measuring and reporting SIP performance
    from an end-to-end perspective.  The metrics introduce a common
    foundation for understanding and quantifying performance expectations
    between service providers, vendors, and the users of services based
    on SIP.  The intended audience for this document can be found among
    network operators, who often collect information on the
    responsiveness of the network to customer requests for services.
