Sonus SBC: Packet Capture


Today I had an issue where I had to capture the media and SIP information on a particular call, many people forget the toolsets on the SBC’s which can give you a wealth of stream information.

  • Goto: Diagnostics screen
  • Goto: Packet Capture menu
  • Start the capture process

Select your primary interface that sends / recieves your stream / RTP media:







You can keep all the settings as default and capture the lot, beware, depending on how long you are capturing this filesize can grow very quickly:



Once this is complete just download the PCAP and open in wireshark for the full analysis of the stream.

Great reference:

On this case it was upstream and usually takes a finger point in the right direction for the carrier.
