The Session Description Protocol (SDP) has been extended with a
capability negotiation mechanism framework that allows the endpoints
to negotiate transport protocols and attributes.  This framework has
been extended with a media capabilities negotiation mechanism that
allows endpoints to negotiate additional media-related capabilities.
This negotiation is embedded into the widely used SDP offer/answer

This memo extends the SDP capability negotiation framework to allow
endpoints to negotiate three additional SDP capabilities.  In
particular, this memo provides a mechanism to negotiate bandwidth
("b=" line), connection data ("c=" line), and session or media titles
("i=" line for each session or media).

This document is a product of the Multiparty Multimedia Session Control Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
