M3UA RFC.4666 – SS7 MTP3 User Adaptation Layer
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. Message Classes and Types Examples of M3UA Procedures Signalling Gateway SS7 Layers Network Byte Order – Most significant byte first, a. Please refer to the current edition of the “Internet Official Protocol Standards” STD 1 for the standardization state and status of this protocol.
An example scenario is where an SG appears as an.
The delivery mechanism should meet the following criteria: This can be achieved using the. Note that there is a 1: Network Working Group K.
It serves as an active, backup, load-sharing, or broadcast process of a Signalling Gateway. Routing Context – A value that uniquely identifies a Routing Key.
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.
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.
Layer Management – Layer Management is a nodal function that handles the inputs and outputs between the M3UA layer and a local management entity. Signalling Point Code Representation Managing Routing Contexts and Routing Keys 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.
Failover also applies upon the return to service of a previously unavailable Application Server Process.
Message Distribution at the SGP 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.

Signaling Transfer Point STP – A node in the SS7 network that provides network access and performs message routing, screening and transfer of signaling messages.
This document obsoletes RFC Routing Contexts and Routing Keys Linkset – A number of signalling links that directly interconnect two signalling points, which are used as a module. An SG contains a set of one or more unique Signalling Gateway Processes, of which one or more is normally actively processing 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.
Signalling Process – A process instance that uses M3UA to communicate with other signalling processes. Receipt of Primitives from the Layer Management Message Distribution at the ASP The provisioning and configuration of the SS7 network determines the restriction placed on the maximum block.
The AS contains a set of one or more unique Application Server Processes, of which one or more is normally actively processing traffic. 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 Context values are configured either using a configuration management interface, or by using the routing key management procedures defined in this document.
This is to take advantage of various SCTP features, such as: Table of Contents 1. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. Routing Key Management Procedures [Optional] Definition of M3UA Boundaries
