IPBCP: IP Bearer Control Protocol
IP Bearer Control Protocol (IPBCP) is used for the exchange of media stream characteristics, port numbers and IP addresses of the source and sink of a media stream to establish and allow the modification of IP bearers. IPBCP is also known as BICC (Bearer Independent Call Control) IP Bearer Control Protocol, because it is suitable for use in IP network environments where the BICC protocol is deployed. The information exchanged with IPBCP is done during BICC call establishment. IPBCP can be used also in other environments.
