 If your CUBE is integrated with CUCM here are some additional notes for you:
CUCM prior to 8.5 does not support media DO-EO (delay offer/Early offer) without MTP. You must run CUCM 8.6.
In simple words, if a requirement says RTP need to be sent directly to the endpoint – You need CUBE 8.6 + CUCM 8.6.

I will cover more details about EO/DO in another blog post!
