Message Distribution at the ASP Receipt of Primitives from the Layer Management An example scenario is where an SG appears as an. Managing Routing Contexts and Routing Keys Routing Context m3ya are configured either using a configuration management interface, or by using the routing key management procedures defined in this document.
This document obsoletes RFC Definition of M3UA Boundaries 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.
RFC – part 1 of 5
Layer Management – Layer Management is a nodal function that handles the inputs and outputs between the M3UA layer and a local management entity. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
Message Classes and Types Signaling Transfer Point STP – A node in the SS7 network that provides network access and performs message routing, screening and transfer of signaling messages.
Network Byte Order – Most significant byte first, a.
Signalling Point Code Representation However, in the case where an ASP is connected to more than one SG, the M3UA layer at an ASP should maintain the status of configured SS7 destinations and route messages according to the availability and congestion status of the routes to these destinations via each SG.

Signalling Gateway SS7 Layers Failover also applies upon the return to service of a previously unavailable Application Server Process. Routing Key Management Procedures [Optional] Signalling Process – A process instance that uses M3UA to communicate with other signalling processes.
M3UA RFC.4666 – SS7 MTP3 User Adaptation Layer
However, in 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.
Please refer to the current tfc of the “Internet Official Protocol Standards” STD 1 for the standardization state and status of this protocol. The provisioning and configuration of the SS7 network determines the restriction placed on the maximum block. This is to take advantage of various SCTP features, such as: The AS contains a set of one or more unique Application Server Processes, of rrc one or more is normally actively processing traffic.
Network Working Group K.
The M3UA layer at an ASP keeps the state 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.
An SG contains a set of one or more unique Signalling Gateway Processes, of which one or more is normally actively m3uq traffic.
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.

Message Distribution at the SGP This can be achieved using the. It serves as an active, backup, load-sharing, or broadcast process of a Signalling Gateway. Routing Contexts and Routing Keys Linkset – A number of signalling links that directly interconnect two signalling points, which are used as a module. The delivery mechanism should meet the following criteria: Routing Key – A Routing Key describes a set of SS7 parameters and parameter efc that uniquely define the range of signalling traffic to be handled m3ia a particular Application Server.
Routing Context – A value that uniquely identifies a Routing Key.
Note that there is a 1: Stream – An SCTP stream; 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 service. Examples of M3UA Procedures
