The INIT chunk contains the following parameters. Affected Point Code Parameter. It can be used by the receiver, in combination with the source IP Address, to identify the association to which this datagram belongs. Their value is generally 0 unless otherwise specified. This includes message transfer between the following: Each IPSP must have its own point code. Message length The message length defines the length of the message in octets including the header and includes parameter padding bytes if there are any.

There are two MGMT messages: SG is not an SS7 node and has no point code.
Several m3uq are reserved for future extensions. SCTP is an application-level datagram transfer protocol operating on top of an unreliable datagram service such as UDP.
A peer signaling process can be in an active or standby state. The M3UA header structure is as follows:. This chunk precedes any Data chunk sent within the association, but may be bundled with one or more Data chunks in the same SCTP datagram.
The SCTP user can specify at startup time the number of streams to be supported by the association. M33ua The version field contains the version of M2PA.
The IPSPs do not require point codes.
M3UA, MTP3-User Adaptation
This could allow for convergence of some signaling and data networks. The chunks contain either control information or user data. Routes messages to their IP destinations.
The Deregistration Response is used to respond success or failure to the deregistration. The delivery mechanism supports:. Either side can initiate a heartbeat message, m3ux the other side must respond with a heartbeat acknowledgement.
The message class The following message classes are available:. The derived state is provided to the upper layer. Chunk ID The type of m3ia contained in the chunk value field. Endpoints that do not receive desired vendor specific information should make an attempt to operate without it, although they may do so and report they are doing so in a degraded mode.
Messages and Formats All of the UA layers use the same common header format. The distribution mm3ua based on matching the m3au message against the Routing Keys. Number of Inbound Streams. The RFC provides the list of currently defined message classes and types. Each peer server serves a specific routing key. The parameter field contains the time values. This interface is implemented with a set of messages that the application can pass to the M3UA layer on the TX communications processor.
If an SS7 destination is available through more than one route more than one SGthe M3UA layer must perform some additional functions. It can also indicate a lack of resources for load share or that an alternate ASP has become active for an Application Server s. Figure shows m3ha format of the common message header. On transmit, the value of this M3ya tag must be set to the value of the Initiate tag received from the peer endpoint during the association initialization.
Tech Stuff – SIGTRAN (SS7 over IP)
Otherwise the Verification tag is set to all 0’s. The values of the chunk ID are defined as follows: The following is the format of the SCTP header:. The common header includes the version, message type, message class, and message length. Peer servers can be local or remote. Number of Outbound Streams. One address is designated as the primary address to receive data. Network service m3us are designing all IP architectures which include support for SS7 and SS7-like signaling protocols. Each user application might be assigned its own stream virtual connection.
Automatically reroutes traffic in the case of failure or congestion. If multiple protocol variants network definitions or multiple upper layers must be supported on the same M3UA m3ya same boardan NSAP is required for each SIO value and protocol variant. It contains the same parameters as the DUNA.
The delivery mechanism described here allows for full MTP3 message handling and network management capabilities between any two SS7 nodes, communicating over an IP network. The protocol consists of a common message header followed by parameters as defined by the message type. Book Hosted by www.
The Routing Context parameter contains all of the Routing Contexts that apply to concerned traffic flows that are affected by the state change of the SS7 destination.
