Controlling registration floods in voip networks via dns


A mechanism controls global synchronization, or registration floods, that may result when a large number of endpoints in a voice over internet protocol (voip) network such as an internet protocol multimedia subsystem (ims) come online simultaneously after a catastrophic failure. The mechanism allows the domain name system (dns) infrastructure to efficiently control the overload condition by registering user end points with backup border elements, and by staggering and by randomizing the time-to-live (ttl) parameter in registrations with backup border elements..

Enhanced e911 network access for a call center using session initiation protocol (sip) messaging


A switched emergency call (e.g., a 911 call, an alarm company call) forwarded by a telematics call center is converted into a session initiation protocol (sip) packetized phone call at the call center, and routed over an ip network, for presentation to an emergency services gateway, which connects to a selective router via dedicated circuits, gaining full access to the enhanced 911 network. This provides a psap receiving a call from a telematics call center or other call center with all features available in an enhanced 911 network, e.g., callback number of the 911 caller, and location of the 911 caller.
