It is a great work and congratulations to all especially to the authors of
RFC 6917.

I know Eric also worked a lot in this area and authored some RFCs that has
been the pre-cursor of this in the beginning of the SIP standards when no
technical standards were available for decomposing of media servers and the
call control application servers for invoking/creation of SIP services

It is a great milestone for the industry as well because there has been so
much struggles for creating a market based on OPEN standards of the media
server that is so important for scalability of the large-scale SIP network
which is being dominated by "proprietary" schemes especially blocking the
competition for entering of more medium or smaller size vendors reducing the

History will record this in a way MEGACO/H.248 has done for the smooth
migration of the monster TDM switches into more distributed scalable
architecture to the IP-based packet switches.

Best regards,
