Stateless Proxy

In SIP, a stateless proxy is

RFC 3261, section 6

[a] logical entity that does not maintain the client or server transaction state machines defined in this specification when it processes requests. A stateless proxy forwards every request it receives downstream and every response it receives upstream.

The oposite is a stateful proxy.
