However, 46666 the context of an SG, the maximum octet block size must be followed when interworking to a SS7 network that does not support the transfer of larger information blocks to the final destination.

Signalling Point Code Representation Layer Management – Layer Management is a nodal function that handles the inputs and outputs between the M3UA layer and a local management entity.

M3UA – Wikipedia

An SG contains a set of one or more unique Signalling Gateway Processes, of which one or more is normally actively processing traffic. The AS contains a set of one or more unique Application Server Processes, of which one or more is normally actively processing traffic.

Routing Context – A value that uniquely identifies a Routing Key. Note that there is a 1: Failover – The capability to reroute signalling traffic as required to an alternate Application Server Process, or group of ASPs, within an Application Server in the event of failure or unavailability of a currently used Application Server Process.


Signalling Gateway SS7 Layers The M3UA layer at an ASP keeps the rcf of the routes to remote SS7 destinations and may initiate an audit of the availability and the restricted or the congested state of remote SS7 destinations. This is to take advantage of various SCTP features, such as: Protocol Architecture The framework architecture that has been defined for SCN signalling transport over IP [ 12 ] uses multiple components, including a common signalling transport protocol and an adaptation module to support the services expected by a particular SCN signalling protocol from its underlying protocol layer.

Signaling Transfer Point STP – A node in the SS7 network that provides network access and performs message routing, screening and transfer of signaling messages.

An example scenario is where an SG appears as an. Managing Routing Contexts and Routing Keys Message Classes and Types Linkset – A number of signalling links that directly interconnect two signalling points, which are used as a module. Routing Key – A Routing Key describes a set of SS7 parameters and parameter values that uniquely define the range of signalling traffic to be handled by a particular Application Server. This document obsoletes RFC Network Working Group K.

Table of Contents 1. The provisioning and configuration of the SS7 network determines the restriction placed on the maximum block.

M3UA RFC.4666 – SS7 MTP3 User Adaptation Layer

Receipt of Primitives from the Layer Management Routing Context values are configured either using a configuration management interface, or by using the routing key management procedures defined in this document. Stream – An SCTP m3u a unidirectional logical channel established from one SCTP endpoint to another associated SCTP endpoint, within which all user messages are delivered in-sequence except for those submitted to the unordered delivery mua.


Message Distribution at the SGP Message Distribution at the ASP This can be achieved using the. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Definition of M3UA Boundaries Please refer to the current edition of the “Internet Official Protocol Standards” STD 1 for the standardization state and status of this protocol. However, in the case where an ASP is connected to more than one SG, the M3UA layer at an Mm3ua should maintain the status of configured SS7 destinations and route messages according to the availability rfv congestion status of the routes to these destinations via each SG.

Examples of M3UA Procedures Network Byte Order – Most significant byte first, a. Signalling Process – A process instance that uses M3UA to communicate with other signalling processes. The delivery mechanism should meet the following criteria: It serves as an active, backup, load-sharing, or broadcast process of a Signalling Gateway.
