Each peer server serves a specific routing key. M3UA uses a flexible configuration m3uaa of supporting a wide variety of network routing and addressing requirements.
The parameters in the message are identical to those in the DUNA. SCTP m3ia periodic heart-beat messages to confirm the status of each end point. The message class The following message classes are available:. It can also indicate a lack of resources for load share or that an alternate ASP has become active for an Application Server s.
This includes message transfer between the following: If the receiver receives a datagram with an all-zeros Verification tag field, it checks the Chunk ID immediately following the common header.
Maintains the availability status of all destinations through all routes. 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.
M3UA – Wikipedia
For example, ANSI networks use the mask field to indicate that all point codes in a cluster are unavailable by setting the mask field to a value of 8. Parameter tag The Parameter tag identifies the type of parameter. The Responder Cookie and the Unrecognized Parameter. UA Common Message Header. M3UA provides for seamless operation between the user part peers by fully supporting the MTP Level 3 upper-layer primitives.
The variable-length parameter format is as follows:. Parameter length Parameter length indicates the size of the parameter in bytes. The M2UA header structure is as follows: Message class The values for Message class can be any of the following:. This local PSP is created automatically, not configured.
Both transport MTP3 messages.
When a 3mua Key is selected, the Application Server state is checked to see if it is active. SCTP is an application-level datagram transfer protocol operating on top of an unreliable datagram service such as UDP. The Correlation Identifier provides a unique identifier for the message that the sending M3UA assigns.
IANA provides a registry of these extensions at the following Web site:.
Message Length Defines the length of the message in octets including the common header. The protocol consists of a common message header followed by parameters as defined by the message type.
For more information, see M3UA service function summary. You will have a warm inner glow for the rest of the day. Problems, comments, suggestions, corrections including broken links or something to add?
SUA can enhance the efficiency of the network and provides a means for simpler implementations. The Registration Response is used to provide a response success or failure to the registration. It is also sent in response to a DAUD, if appropriate. The following is the format of the SCTP header:. The primitives are m3uua in Q.
Tech Stuff – SIGTRAN (SS7 over IP)
Allows for messages to be delivered in the order in which there were sent. Network service providers are designing all IP architectures which mua support for SS7 and SS7-like signaling protocols.
It j3ua two extra variable parameters: Selective Acknowledgement SACK This chunk is sent to the remote endpoint to acknowledge received Data chunks and to inform the remote endpoint of gaps in the received subsequences of Data chunks as represented by their TSNs.
