Technical Summary
This document defines a SIP event package that enables the collection
and reporting of metrics that measure the quality for RTP-based Voice
over IP (VoIP) sessions.
Working Group Summary
The WG analyzed several approaches to implement quality reporting in SIP
(e.g., forking RTCP, new header fields, and new body types). Finally,
the WG decided to use a SIP event package for that purpose.

The document was significantly revised during IESG evaluation and went
through an additional IETF LC.
Protocol Quality
