6.2.12 Traffic Steering Support Function (TSSF)

23.2033GPPPolicy and charging control architectureRelease 17TS

The TSSF is a function that receives traffic steering control information from the PCRF and ensures that the related traffic steering policy is enforced in the (S)Gi-LAN.

A traffic steering policy is locally configured in TSSF and can be used for uplink, downlink or for both directions. To ensure that the traffic steering policy is enforced, the TSSF performs deployment specific actions as configured for that traffic steering policy. For example, the TSSF may configure traffic detection and forwarding entities in the (S)Gi-LAN to fulfil the traffic steering policy.
