This paper analyzes the session setup delay in the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) with the CDMA2000 Evolution Data Only Rev. A (EV-DO rev. A) standard for wireless transmission. Session setup delay is particularly critical for interactive multimedia applications, such as gaming, push-to-X and Voice over IP (VoIP), as it directly translates in user perception of service quality. Keeping signaling delay low, however, is a challenge in IMS due to the text-based nature of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for signaling, and, more significantly, due to the lossy and capacity constrained wireless links. To address this challenge, we analyze the session setup delay end-to-end, by taking into account key system properties across all layers, ranging from radio links to IMS signaling architecture. We present a model for cross-layer performance analysis and simulation, which includes the statistical properties of the EV-DO (rev. A) wireless channel, and also takes into consideration the properties of transport protocols (TCP, UDP) and SIP signaling (message size and compression). By means of analysis and simulations, we study the setup delay performance of a generic, multi-operator IMS communication scenario between two mobile users. We describe how session setup delay can be estimated and reduced in realistic IMS settings and we propose architecture alternatives to the basic IMS scenario. The results derived from this study show that the proposed methods can incrementally lead to a lower setup delay and less sensitivity to the radio transmission quality and frame error rate compared to the base IMS scenario.
