Rvc document obsoletes RFC Layer Management – Layer Management is a nodal function that handles the inputs and outputs between the M3UA layer and a local management entity. An SG contains a set of one or more unique Signalling Gateway Processes, of which one or more is normally actively processing traffic.
Message Distribution at the ASP Signaling Transfer Point STP – A node rfcc the SS7 network gfc provides network access and performs message routing, screening and transfer of signaling messages. This can be achieved using the. Failover also applies upon the return to service of a previously unavailable Application Server Process. 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.
Examples of M3UA Procedures 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.
Message Distribution at the M3u Note that there is a 1: It serves as an active, backup, load-sharing, or broadcast process of a Signalling Gateway. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
Signalling Process – A process instance that uses M3UA to communicate with other signalling processes. Signalling Point Code Representation Table of Contents 1. The delivery k3ua should meet the following criteria: This is to take advantage of various SCTP features, such as: Definition of M3UA Boundaries Linkset – A number of signalling links that directly interconnect two signalling points, which are used as a module. Routing Contexts and Routing Keys However, in the context of an SG, the maximum octet block size must be followed 46666 interworking to a SS7 network that does not support the transfer of m3uw information blocks to the final destination.
Please refer to the current edition of the “Internet Official Protocol Standards” STD 1 for the standardization state and status of this protocol.

Network Working Group K. 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 Classes and Types 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.
Routing Key Management Procedures [Optional] 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 rf module to support the services expected by a particular SCN signalling protocol from its underlying protocol layer. An example scenario is where an SG appears as an.

Network Byte Order – Most significant byte first, a. 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. The provisioning and configuration of the SS7 network determines the restriction placed on the maximum block. Routing Context values are configured either using a configuration management interface, or by using the routing key management procedures defined in this document.
The AS contains a set of one or more unique Application Server Processes, of which one or more is normally actively processing traffic.
