Dear guys


I have a strange issue in my router. Here is the call setup:


PSTN------SIP trunk-------cube router--------H.323--------CUCM


my issue is there is a message in my router logs which is as follow:


Dec 30 10:11:16.797 KSA: %SIP-3-UNSUPPORTED: Unsupported ptime value Dec 30 10:23:13.728 KSA: %SIP-3-UNSUPPORTED: Unsupported ptime value Dec 30 11:03:49.612 KSA: %SIP-3-UNSUPPORTED: Unsupported ptime value Dec 30 11:20:57.964 KSA: %SIP-3-UNSUPPORTED: Unsupported ptime value Dec 30 11:21:06.640 KSA: %SIP-3-UNSUPPORTED: Unsupported ptime value




Can any expert help me in that why this message is appearing and how to remove it.

Here is the info on Ptime:

ptime attributes


SIP gateway supports one ptime attribute per media line.


Cisco  UBE supports ptime attribute when one codec is offered. The ptime  attribute is not sent when multiple codecs are offered by the Cico UBE.


The  default behavior of the Cisco UBE is to select the minimum ptime value  from the offer and prefer. Results are unpredictable when dissimilar  networks with  different packetization time periods are connected.



To me it sounds like the provider is offering a codec you cant support....    If they offer G.711, you have to make the call goes through G.711 on your end.  If you are running G.729 or something else, then you must use a transcoder at the CUBE to transcode between the codecs.
