This document describes functions implemented in Session Initiation
Protocol (SIP) intermediaries known as Session Border Controllers
(SBCs).  The goal of this document is to describe the commonly
provided functions of SBCs.  A special focus is given to those
practices that are viewed to be in conflict with SIP architectural
principles.  This document also explores the underlying requirements
of network operators that have led to the use of these functions and
practices in order to identify protocol requirements and determine
whether those requirements are satisfied by existing specifications
or if additional standards work is required.  This document is not 
an Internet Standards Track specification; it is published for 
informational purposes.

This document is a product of the Session Initiation Proposal Investigation Working Group of the IETF.
