5.6 Configuration of Signalling Gateway Function

23.0023GPPNetwork architectureRelease 17TS

The Signalling gateway function is used to interconnect different signalling networks i.e. SCTP/IP based signalling networks and SS7 signalling networks. The application layer (e.g. ISUP, BICC, MAP or CAP) is not affected. The signalling gateway function may be implemented as a stand-alone entity or inside another entity.

NOTE: SS7 application transport and SCTP/IP adaption protocols are not shown.
