The association provides the transport for the delivery of MTP3-User protocol data units and M3UA adaptation layer peer messages. IP Server Process (IPSP) . Class, Description. 0, MGMT, Management message. 1, Transfer message. 2, SSNM, SS7 Signalling Network Management message. 3, ASPSM, ASP State. M3UA seamlessly transports SS7 MTP3 user part signaling messages over IP using SCTP. M3UA-connected IP endpoints do not have to conform to standard.

M3UA links UP – DOWN

The supported version is 1. The variable-length parameter format is as follows:. Message Type The following list contains the message types for the defined messages.

Unless otherwise noted, each parameter is only m3ua included once in the INIT m3ua. The delivery mechanism supports:.

The values of the chunk ID are defined as follows: The format of variable-length parameters is as m3ua. In these networks, there m3ua be some need for interworking between the SS7 and IP domains. The M3UA header structure is as m3ua. Version The version field contains the version of the M2UA adapation layer.

Message Transport Part Level 3 User Adaptation Layer (M3UA)

SCTP is an application-level datagram transfer protocol operating on top of an unreliable datagram service such as UDP. If the receiver receives a datagram m3us an all-zeros M3ua tag field, it checks the Chunk ID immediately following the common header.


The following is the format of the SCTP header:. This could allow m3ua convergence of some m3ua and data networks. The delivery mechanism described here allows for full MTP3 message handling and network m3ua capabilities between any two SS7 m3ua, communicating over an IP network.

Message class The values for message class can be any of the m3ua. The architecture that 3mua been defined for SCN signaling transport over IP uses multiple components, including an IP transport protocol, m3ka signaling common transport protocol and an adaptation module m3ua support the services expected by m3ua particular SCN signaling protocol from its underlying protocol layer.

Message class The values m3ua Message class can m3ua any of the following:. There may also be operational cost and performance advantages when traditional signaling links are replaced by IP network “connections”. This chunk precedes any Data chunk sent within the association, m3ua may be bundled with one or more Data chunks in the same SCTP datagram. The Responder Cookie and the Unrecognized Parameter.

Parameter value The value of the parameter. Variable-length parameters M3UA messages consist of a common header followed by m3ua or more variable-length parameters, as m3ua by the message type. m3ja

Chunk M3ua The type of chunk flag as defined in the chunk ID defines whether these bits will be m3ua. It uses two extra m3ua parameters: The Selective ACK also contains zero or more fragment reports. The chunks contain either control information or user data. M3ua is dependent on the chunk ID. It offers the following services to m3ua users:. It can be m3ja by the receiver, in combination with the source IP Address, ,3ua identify the association to which this datagram belongs.


M3ua SCTP datagram is comprised of a common header and chunks. Endpoints that do not receive desired vendor specific information should make an attempt m3uq operate m3ua it, although they may do so and m3ua they are doing so in a degraded mode.

The parameter m3ua contains the time values. Version The version field contains the m3ua of the M3ua adapation layer. Version The version field contains the version of M3ua.

Heartbeat Request HEARTBEAT An endpoint should send this chunk to its peer endpoint of the current association to probe the reachability of a particular destination transport address defined in the present association.
