In this article you can read about Session Description Protocol that is used between two networks for communication. If you are interested in this topic you can find more information and a video in the sections below.
SDP transports information on media streams, in multimedia sessions (exists for a certain duration of time) that includes e.g. session announcement and session invitation. It allows recipients to take part in SD (Session Description). It is primarily applied in inter-networks and also applied for describing conferences. The Session Description protocol does not send data itself, it is only used for the communication between end-points. In the picture below you can see that a VoIP phone and a softphone calls another VoIP phone that is transmitted by Ozeki Phone System XE and the call goes through an SDP channel (Figure 1).
