1.2.3 Data Setting Procedures
1.2.1 Meanings of Common MML Commands
Generally, database operations are implemented using Human-Machine Language (MML)
commands.
The MML commands are in the action + object format. For example, the ADD BRD command
consists of the action ADD and the object BRD. The action ADD indicates that a data record
will be added to the BAM database, and the object BRD indicates that the data record will be
added to the board data table.
The MML commands can be classified into two types, namely, configuration commands and
maintenance commands. The configuration commands apply to the BAM and SMU database.
The maintenance commands apply to the equipment, signaling links, and system resources.
Table 1-1 lists the frequently used MML commands. The part from ADD to LST describes the
configuration commands. The part from ACT to SWP describes the maintenance commands.

Table 1-1 Frequently used MML commands
Command Description
ADD Adds a data record to the database.
RMV Removes an existing record from the database.
Note that the RMV command can remove only the data records added to the
database using the ADD command.
MOD Modifies certain fields of a data record in the database.
Note that the MOD command can modify only the data records added to the
database using the ADD or SET command.
LST Lists the details of one or more records in the database.
ACT Activates a signaling link or service.
BLK Blocks a signaling link.
BKP Backs up the database or the configured data.
DEA Deactivates a signaling link or service.
DSP Displays the status of the specified equipment or signaling link, or the usage
of system resources.
RST Resets the specified equipment or signaling link or clears the system
resources.
SND Sends a message to the peer equipment.
SWP Switches over the active and the standby boards.
After the switchover, the active board changes to standby and the standby
board changes to active. This command is applicable to the active board only.
1.2.2 Rules for Setting MML Command Parameters
The HLR9820 provides a user-friendly Graphic User Interface (GUI). Through the GUI, you
can conveniently set the MML command parameters.
Figure 1-2 shows the MML command input window of the HLR9820.

Figure 1-2 MML command input window

When configuring data, pay attention to the following points:
l The parameters in red are the key parameters, for example, Shelf number, Position
number, Row number, and Column number, as shown in Figure 1-2. The parameters
of this type are mandatory. If these parameters are not specified, running the command
fails.
l The parameters in black are generally ordinary parameters, for example, Location title, as
shown in Figure 1-2. The parameters of this type are optional. They do not affect the
running of the command.
l Certain stable parameters are set with default values, for example, PDB location, as shown
in Figure 1-2. This helps simplify the configuration. You can modify the values of the
parameters of this type as required.
l If you do not know the default value or value range of a certain parameter, you can place
the cursor over the input box of the parameter for about one second. The default value and
the value range are displayed, for example, PDB location, as shown in Figure 1-2.
1.2.3 Data Setting Procedures
Data setting refers to the process in which the operator configures the data in the database by
using MML commands during deployment, expansion, or maintenance. The HLR9820 supports
two types of data settings, namely, online setting and offline setting.
NOTE
The types of data settings are not distinguished when the configuration is performed through the SMU
client. The types of data settings are distinguished only when the configuration is performed through the
Local Maintenance Terminal (LMT).
l Online setting
Online setting refers to the procedure for refreshing the data in the BAM database, SAU,
or HDU by running MML commands on the LMT. It is mainly used for setting the data in
the BAM database during routine maintenance. The data volume involved is generally
small.
Table 1-2 lists the steps of setting the SAU data online.

l Offline setting
Offline setting refers to the procedure for refreshing only the data in the BAM database by
running MML commands on the LMT. During deployment or expansion, the data volume
involved is great because a large number of MML commands are run. In such a
circumstance, offline setting is recommended to improve the efficiency.

1.3 Precautions for Data Configuration
1.3.1 Impact of the Maximum Number of Tuples on Data Configuration
1.3.2 Impact of Value Ranges of Software Parameters on Data Configuration
1.3.3 Impact of Software Parameters on Data Configuration
1.3.4 Impact of Board Restarting on Data Configuration
1.3.1 Impact of the Maximum Number of Tuples on Data
Configuration
Since the memory capacity and the CPU processing capability are limited, the system must
consider the memory space required for the software and the databases of various SAU boards
when allocating space for the memory zones of the boards. Thus, the system will not allocate
excessive storage space for the databases operating in the memory zones of the SAU boards,
that is, the system must restrict the maximum number of tuples stored in various data tables in
the database.
The HLR9820 manages the maximum number of tuples based on modules, including the
WSMU, WCCU, and WBSG. For the WCCU and the WBSG, the maximum number of tuples
consists of two parts:
1 Overview of Data Configuration
HUAWEI HLR9820 Home Location Register
Configuration Guide
1-6 Huawei Proprietary and Confidential
Copyright Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
Issue 04 (2009-01-15)
l Maximum number of tuples of the special table: The maximum number of tuples of a certain
special table need not be the same for all the modules of the same type.
l Maximum number of tuples of the public table: The maximum number of tuples of the
public table must be the same for all the modules of the same type. If the system detects
that the maximum number of tuples stored in a certain public table is inconsistent among
modules, an error occurs when the system formats all the data.
You can use the LST MAXT command to query the maximum number of tuples. If you specify
a module number, the system displays the maximum number of tuples of the special table in the
module. If you do not specify a module number, the system displays the maximum number of
tuples of the public table in the module.
Generally, avoid modifying the maximum number of tuples for the databases of the SAU boards.
If you modify the maximum number of tuples, the storage capability of other key data will be
affected. In addition, the database query efficiency will be reduced because the size of the
database is overlarge or even the reliability of the system will be degraded because the size of
the database exceeds the system design capability.
If it is necessary to modify the maximum number of tuples of the database, contact Huawei
technical support engineers.
1.3.2 Impact of Value Ranges of Software Parameters on Data
Configuration
To facilitate management and control, a theoretical value range is defined for each numerical
parameter during data configuration. Generally, if the field mapping a parameter is not the key
field, the system allows you to configure data as long as the value you set for the parameter is
within the theoretical value range.
Take the ADD M3LNK command for example. When the ADD M3LNK command is run to
add an M3UA link, since Local port and Peer port are not the key fields used by the database
to sort and retrieve the data tables of the M3UA links, the actual values of Local port and Peer
port are restricted by their theoretical value ranges, respectively.
If the field mapping a parameter is the primary or secondary key field used by the database of
the SAU board to sort and retrieve the related data tables, the value you set for the parameter is
restricted by both the theoretical value range and the maximum number of tuples of the table
where the parameter exists. There are two cases as follows:
l Primary key field
If the field mapping a parameter (must be numbered globally) is the primary key field used
by the database to sort and retrieve the data records in a certain table, to improve the
efficiency, the system allocates the storage space for the data table in the database based
on the maximum index number of the parameter. In other words, the actual value of the
maximum index number of the parameter is equal to the maximum number of tuples of the
table. This can be verified through simple conversion.
For example, in the M3UA Link Set table configured by the ADD M3LKS command,
Link set index (must be numbered globally) is the primary key field used by the database
to sort and retrieve data records in the M3UA Link Set table. Assume that the theoretical
value range of Link set index is 0 - M and the maximum number of tuples of the M3UA
Link Set table is N for the ADD M3LKS command. If the theoretical value range is not
considered, the actual value range of Link set index is 0 - (N-1). Otherwise, the actual
value range is the intersection of 0 - M and 0 - (N-1).

When you configure the M3UA link set using the ADD M3LKS command, the actual value
range of Link set index is 0 - 127 but not 0 - 65534 if M is 65534 and N is 128. If you set
the parameter to a value that is greater than 128, an error occurs.
l Secondary key field
If the field mapping a parameter (need not be numbered globally) is the secondary key field
used by the database to sort and retrieve the data records in a certain table, the maximum
number of tuples limits only the maximum number of data records that can be configured.
In this case, the actual value range of the parameter is also restricted by its theoretical value
range.
For example, in the M3UA Link table configured by the ADD M3LNK command, Module
number (must be numbered globally) is the primary key field and Link number (need be
numbered in the module only) is the secondary key field for the host database to sort and
retrieve data of the M3UA Link table. Assume that the theoretical value range of Link
number is 0 - M and the maximum number of tuples of the M3UA Link table is N for the
ADD M3LNK command. The actual value range of Link number is still 0 - M.
When you configure the M3UA link using the ADD M3LNK command, the actual value
range of Link number is 0 - 63 if M is 63 and N is 32. For a certain WBSG module, the
actual value range of Link number is 0 - 63 but the total number of M3UA links, however,
cannot exceed 32. An error occurs when you add more than 32 M3UA links.
1.3.3 Impact of Software Parameters on Data Configuration
Software parameters are designed to solve specific problems. Each bit of a software parameter
has a unique meaning. Generally, you can directly use the default values. If you need to modify
a software parameter, contact Huawei technical support engineers.
1.3.4 Impact of Board Restarting on Data Configuration
If the SAU and the BAM of the HLR9820 are normal when you configure the databases of the
SAU boards on the LMT in online mode, the system can ensure data consistency between the
databases of the SAU boards and the database of the BAM.
In certain cases, for example, troubleshooting, software upgrade, or system expansion, you may
need to switch over or reset a board. At this point, the board loads programs and data from the
BAM again. This process is called board restarting.
The operation of the board is unstable during restarting. To be specific, the communication
between the board and the BAM is unstable; the communication between the board and other
boards is unstable; the board cannot respond to maintenance commands in time. At this point,
do not carry out operations that may change the database data on the LMT. Otherwise, the
database data between the SAU board and the BAM may be inconsistent. This affects the security
and stability of the system.
After switching over or resetting a board, you must run the DSP BRD command to check the
operating status of the board and run the STR CRC command to check the data consistency.
You should configure data on the LMT only when the board is normal.

2.1.4 Module Number
A board in the HLR9820 is considered as a module. Each module is allocated a number, which
is called the module number.
The module number of each board is unique. The boards working in active/standby mode have
the same module number. The modules are numbered as follows:
l BAM: 0
l WSMU: 2 to 21 (automatically allocated)
l WCSU/WESU/WCCU: 22 to 101
l WIFM/WBSG/WEAM: 132 to 211
l BSU/SMU: 212 to 213
l DSU/DMU/SCU/DRU/ETU/INU: 216 to 249
2.1.5 Cluster
A cluster refers to a group of processes or nodes that provide the same service.
Generally, a cluster consists of one master node and several slave nodes. If the master node is
faulty, the services of the master node are switched to another node in the cluster for processing.
Thus, the service provisioning is not affected by the failure of a single node, and the system
reliability is improved.
The rules for numbering clusters are as follows:
l The HSU cluster ID is set to 1.
l The DRU cluster ID is set to 11.
l The DSU cluster ID ranges from 12 to 512.
The rules for configuring clusters are as follows:
l An HSU cluster is permanently configured. Therefore, you need not configure the HSU
cluster manually.
l A DRU cluster is permanently configured. Therefore, you need not configure the DRU
cluster manually.
l Three DSU clusters are configured for each pair of DSU boards.
2.1.6 Node
A node refers to a unit that can independently provide services. A host or board may have one
or more nodes. The nodes that manage the same subscriber data constitute a cluster.
Based on the node status, the nodes can be classified into two types:

Issue 04 (2009-01-15)
l Master node: Each cluster can have only one master node. The master node implements
functions such as adding, deleting, modifying, and querying data.
l Slave node: Each cluster may have one or more or no slave nodes. The slave nodes can
only query data.
The nodes of the HLR can be classified into the HSU, DRU, and DSU nodes. The rules for
configuring the nodes are as follows:
l Each DMU board is permanently configured with one HSU node.
l Each SCU board is permanently configured with one HSU node.
l Each DRU board is permanently configured with one DRU node.
l Each DSU board is permanently configured with three DSU nodes.

NOTE
l The procedures marked in blue in Figure 2-1 are performed during the software installation, skip
these procedures during the data configuration.
l If ATM-2M links are used to transfer inter-office signaling, select inverse multiplexing for ATM
(IMA) or user network interface (UNI) mode to configure the data of the system. The configuration
modes of both ends must be the same.
l Configuration of remote node data (by using the ADD REMOTENODE command) is required only
for the seamless geographic redundancy solution.

2.3 Hardware Data Table Relation
As shown in Figure 2-1, the hardware data is configured in the following sequence:
l Configuring a rack
l Configuring a subrack
l Configuring a board
Therefore, certain parameters are required to associate them. For example, during the
configuration of a subrack, a parameter is required to ensure that the subrack is configured in
the specified rack. During the configuration of a board, a parameter is required to ensure that
the board is configured in the specified subrack.
Figure 2-2 and Figure 2-3 show the relations between the hardware data tables.

3.1.3 SPC
3.1.1 Local Office Information
The HLR9820 local office information includes the following two parts:
l SAU local office information
Local office type
Network type
Local SPC
l SMU local office information
Network type
Country code
Mobile country code
Mobile network code
System ID
Switch ID
Default PL
System resource data
3.1.2 Called Prefix
A called prefix is a number segment truncated from a called number from the first digit. Its length
is less than or equal to that of the called number. For details on the use of the called prefix, see
ADD CALLEDNA.
3.1.3 SPC
The signaling point code (SPC) is the code used in the Signaling System No.7 (SS7) network.
The signaling point (SP) is identified by the SPC. The originating signaling point (OSP) is the
point from which a signaling message is originated. The destination signaling point (DSP) is the
point to which a signaling message is destined. Generally, the international SPC is 14-bit long.
The SPC must be configured based on the actual condition.

Issue 04 (2009-01-15)
There is no clearly-defined procedure for configuring the local office data. The sequence
presented in this section is recommended.
The local office data must be configured on the following clients:
l HLR9820 LMT: Configure the local office information of the SAU and add local SPCs.
The latter operation is optional.
l HLR9820 SMU client: Configure the SMU global data and the system resource data.
NOTE
l In the HLR9820, the country code and global title (GT) (used for SCCP signaling processing) set in
the Local Office Information table on the SAU must be consistent with the country code and HLR
number (that is, Sender IN, used for MAP signaling processing) set in the Local Office Information
table on the SMU client.
l It takes time for the local fastDB to update its global data after the global data is loaded. The time is
determined by the Interval of global table refresh parameter set by using the SET MAPSERV
command.
Table 3-1 lists the procedure for configuring the local office data.

MTP Protocol Stack
The Message Transfer Part (MTP) of narrowband is based on the conventional TDM
transmission system. MTP implements the following functions:
l Providing reliable transfer of signaling messages
l Taking measures to reduce message loss, repetition, and out-of-sequence in the case of a
signaling network failure, thus ensuring reliable message transfer
MTP comprises three parts:
l Signaling data link (MTP1)
l Signaling link (MTP2)
l Signaling network (MTP3)
Figure 4-1 shows the structure of the MTP protocol stack.

MTP3: Message Transfer Part Level 3

MTP OSP
In the HLR9820, a local SP is an OSP. To define an MTP OSP, you need to specify the following
information:
l SPC of the OSP
l Network indicator (NI) of the OSP
l Whether the OSP provides SCCP-layer functions
l Whether the OSP provides the STP function
The HLR9820 provides the multi-SP function. In the same signaling network, a maximum of
16 originating signaling point codes (OPCs) can be defined for one HLR9820. Therefore, the
SPs of the local office can map the same DSP. If a physical node is classified into N SPs, because
16 links can be set between an OPC and a DSP, the total number of inks between the physical
node and the remote SP is up to N16.
MTP DSP
To define an MTP DSP, you need to specify the following information:
l SPC of the DSP
l NI of the DSP
l OSPs relating to the DSP
l Adjacent flag (whether the DSP and the OSP are directly connected through a link)
l Selection mask of the link set in the route destined for this DSP
l Whether the DSP provides the STP function
Generally, the HLR and MSC adopt 14-bit SPC.
The DSPs that need to be set in the local office and the network topology are determined by the
carrier. The DSPs that connect to the local office through direct links must be set, such as DPC
1 and the STP in Figure 4-2. For the DSPs that have no direct link connection with the local
office, for example, DPC 2 in Figure 4-2, whether the DSPs should be set depends on the
addressing mode specified by the carrier. If the DPC or DPC + SSN addressing is used, the DSPs
must be set in the local office. If the GT addressing is used, the DSPs need not be set.

If the DSP is an adjacent SP, that is, the DSP has a direct link connection with the local office,
you also need to define a link set.
Associated and Quasi-Associated Modes
In the associated mode, signaling messages are transmitted between two SPs through a direct
link, as shown in Figure 4-3.

In the quasi-associated mode, signaling messages are transmitted between two SPs through
multiple series links, as shown in Figure 4-4. In the quasi-associated mode, the STP does not
change the OPC and DPC in the signaling message. If the DPC or DPC + SSN addressing is
adopted to transfer MAP messages between two SPs without a direct link, the quasi-associated
mode must be used between the two SPs. If the GT addressing is adopted to transfer MAP
messages, the MAP messages are transferred through the STP after GT translation, as shown in
Figure 4-5.

MTP Link
An MTP link is a physical link that connects various SPs and STPs and transmits signaling
messages.
MTP uses the signaling link code (SLC) to identify different links in a link set. The signaling
link code send (SLCS) is the code sent to the remote signaling entity for identifying the link. In
the normal case, the SLC and the SLCS should be configured with the same value. In addition,
the remote signaling entity link connected with the local end should also be configured with the
same SLC and SLCS. The SLCs in the same link set must be uniformly numbered, no matter
whether they are allocated to the same WCSU.
During the self-loop test of the link, the SLC is different from the SLCS. The SLC of link 1 must
be the same as the SLCS of link 2. The SLC of link 2 must be the same as the SLCS of link 1.

MTP Link Set
A number of parallel MTP links that directly connect two SPs constitute an MTP link set.
To define an MTP link set, you need to specify the following information:
l Link set number
l Adjacent DSPs connecting by the link set
l Link selection mask
Each link set contains up to 16 links. The link selection mask applies to implementation of load-
sharing among the links in the same link set.
NOTE
l At most one link set can be set between two adjacent SPs.
l A link is the basic unit in a link set.
l A link set can contain one or more links.
MTP Route
An MTP route is the path through which signaling messages are transferred between two SPs.
To define an MTP route, you need to specify the following information:
l DSP index
l Link set number
l Route priority
A route specifies the mapping between the DSP and the link set. That is, the route determines
which link set is used to transmit signaling messages to the DSP.
One route maps only one link set, and one link set can map multiple routes.
The routes destined for one DSP can be classified into direct routes and alternative routes. The
direct route indicates that no STP is on the route between the local office and the DSP. The
alternative route is the route on which signaling messages are transferred to the DSP through
STPs.
The link set mapping the direct route is the one between the OSP and the DSP.
The link set mapping the alternative route is the one between the OSP and the STP.
If the routes destined for a DSP contain direct routes and alternative routes, you can specify the
priorities of the routes to enable the signaling messages to use the direct route as the first choice
and the alternative route as the second one. The smaller the value is, the higher the priority will
be. At most 16 routes with the same priority level can be set for a DSP. These routes can perform
load sharing.
As shown in Figure 4-6, two routes exist between SP A and SP C, including a direct route A-
C and an alternative route A-B-C. Direct route A-C maps link set 1, and alternative route A-B-
C maps link set 2.

Load Sharing
The load-sharing modes can be classified into:
l Load sharing of links in one link set
l Load sharing of links among different link sets
For the load sharing of links in one link set, the traffic is shared by the links in the same link set.
The links are selected according to the Signaling Link Selection Code (SLS).
Figure 4-7 shows the load sharing in one link set.

For the load sharing of links among different link sets, the traffic is shared by the links in different
link sets. The links are selected according to the signaling link selection mask.

Although the same link set is used, the signaling messages destined for different DSPs can be
distributed by different load-sharing modes. As shown in Figure 4-8, the same link sets (DE
and DF) are used for the traffic from A to B and C. The traffic to B is shared by DE and DF
according to the SLS, and only DF is used for the traffic to C because of the fault of EC.
To realize the preceding two load-sharing modes, the HLR9820 uses the signaling link set
selection mask and signaling link selection mask to evenly distribute signaling messages
according to the SLS.
Mask Setting Principles
The principles of setting the signaling link selection mask and signaling link set selection mask
are as follows:
l The signaling link selection mask depends on the number of links in the same link set, and
the signaling link set selection mask depends on the number of link sets.
Table 4-1 lists the mapping between the number of 1s in the mask and the number of links
or the number of link sets.
Table 4-1 Mapping between the number of the links/link sets and the number of 1s in the
mask
Number of Link Sets or
Number of Links Number of 1s in the Mask
1 0
2 1
3 - 4 2
5 - 8 3
9 - 16 4
l The SLS plays the same role in the allocation of links and link sets. To ensure that all links
in a link set can be selected, the same bit cannot simultaneously be set to 1 in the signaling
link selection mask and in the signaling link set selection mask.
For example, if the signaling link set selection mask is 0011 and the link set contains four
links, the signaling link selection mask should be 1100. If the link set contains two links,
the signaling link selection mask should be 1000 or 0100.
Mask Setting Example
If there are four link sets (0, 1, 2, and 3) to one DSP and each link set has two links, the link set
selection mask can be set to 1010 and the link selection mask can be set to 0100. According to
the link set selection algorithm, the routing of signaling services is as shown in Figure 4-9.

The link selection algorithm is similar to the link set selection algorithm, except that the link
selection mask is used instead of the link set selection mask, and the number of links is used
instead of the number of routes.
Table 4-2 is an example of the selection of link set and link by SLS in the case of the link set
mask being 1010 and the link mask being 0100.

The load sharing previously mentioned is implemented by the link sets of the same priority. The
traffic is carried by the link sets of the lower priority only when all the link sets of the higher
priority are unavailable.
If multiple masks are available, you need to select one based on the actual condition.
It is assumed that there are two link sets destined for a DSP. The available link set selection
masks are 0001, 0010, 0100, and 1000. The SLS for TUP message is determined by the lowest

4 bits of the Circuit Identification Code (CIC). When the even circuit of the local office is the
controlling circuit, the CICs in the TUP messages transferred are mostly even numbers.
Therefore, the SLSs are mostly even numbers.
l When the link set selection mask is 0001 and SLSs are 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 14, the first
link set is selected. When the link set selection mask is 0001 and SLSs are 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11,
13, and 15, the second link set is selected. Since the SLSs are mostly even numbers, the
TUP messages from the local office cannot be evenly distributed between the two link sets.
l When the link set selection mask is 0010 and SLSs are 0, 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 12, and 13, the first
link set is selected. When the link set selection mask is 0010 and SLSs are 2, 3, 6, 7, 10,
11, 14, and 15, the second link set is selected. In this case, the TUP messages from the local
office can be evenly distributed between the two link sets.
4.1.2 MTP3B-Specific Concepts
Broadband MTP Structure
The broadband MTP provides signaling transmission services through the ATM network. It
comprises MTP3B and SAAL, as shown in Figure 4-10.

AAL5 implements the following two functions:
l Splitting the user data from the upper layer into fixed length (48 bytes) and adding an ATM
header to each message
l Removing the ATM headers of the ATM cells sent from the lower layer, reassembling the
data, and submitting the complete data to the user part
When the ATM-2M mode is used, two signaling entities communicate with each other through
the E1 cable.
MTP3B Function
MTP3B is responsible for transferring signaling messages and managing signaling networks and
signaling links. It uses the services provided by SAAL to exchange messages. In other words,
MTP3B transfers the signaling messages from SAAL to the corresponding link or transfers the
messages from the link layer to the upper-level SCCP.
The MTP3B function module comprises the following two parts:
l Signaling message management
It guarantees that the signaling messages from the user part of a certain SP are sent to the
destination user part specified by the specific field in the message signaling unit.
l Signaling network management
It provides the capabilities of reconstructing the signaling network in the case of a network
failure. The capabilities include the use and positioning of new signaling links.
MTP3B implements the following functions:
l Managing networks, such as link prohibition, link activation, and SP status query
l Identifying link failures through signaling monitoring
MTP3B OSP
An OSP is also a local SP. To define an MTP3B OSP, you need to specify the following
information:
l SPC of the OSP
l NI of the OSP
MTP3B DSP
To define an MTP3B DSP, you need to specify the following information:
l SPC of the DSP
l NI of the DSP
l OSPs relating to the DSP
l Adjacent flag (whether the DSP and the OSP are directly connected through a link)
l Selection mask of the link set in the route destined for this DSP
l Whether the DSP provides the STP function
The MTP3B DSPs construct the signaling network topology that the local MTP3B SP resides.

According to the location of the local SP, the DSPs can be classified into adjacent DSPs and
non-adjacent DSPs. Two SPs connecting by a direct signaling link are called adjacent SPs, and
two SPs without a direct signaling link but with a direct speech channel are called non-adjacent
SPs.
The DPC, a hexadecimal number, refers to the code of a specific SP in the international,
international reserved, national, or national reserved network.
The DSPs that need to be set in the local office and the network topology are determined by the
carrier. The DSPs that connect to the local office through direct links must be set, such as DPC
1 and the STP in Figure 4-11. For the DSPs that have no direct link connection with the local
office, for example, DPC 2 in Figure 4-11, whether the DSPs should be set depends on the
addressing mode specified by the carrier. If the DPC addressing is used, the DSPs must be set
in the local office. If the GT addressing is used, the DSPs need not be set.

If the DSP is an adjacent SP, that is, the DSP has a direct link connection with the local office,
you also need to define a link set.
MTP3B Link
To define an MTP3B link, you need to specify the following information:
l Link set number
l SLC
l PVC link number
l Link priority

NOTE
l The link set number and SLC uniquely identify an MTP3B link.
l The SLC is unique in a link set.
The MTP3B Link table describes static features of links from a local MTP3B OSP to an adjacent
MTP3B SP. After adding an MTP3B link set, you must add MTP3B links for the link set.
The SLCs of the SPs connected by a link must be the same.
MTP3B Link Set
To define an MTP3B link set, you need to specify the following information:
l Link set index
l Adjacent DSPs connecting by the link set
l Link selection mask
The MTP3B Link Set table describes the common static features of all links from a local SP to
an adjacent MTP3B SP.
An MTP3B link set is a collection of the parallel links connecting two adjacent SPs.
The mask in the link set is used to implement load sharing among links.
MTP3B Route
To define an MTP3B route, you need to specify the following information:
l DSP index
l Link set index
l Route priority
An MTP3B route transfers signaling messages between two SPs.
4.1.3 SIGTRAN-Specific Concepts
The Signaling Transport (SIGTRAN) protocol supports transmission of the switched circuit
network (SCN) signaling across the IP network. This protocol supports the inter-layer standard
primitive interface defined in the SCN signaling protocol hierarchy model to ensure the
utilization of the existing SCN signaling application without modification. It uses the standard
IP transport protocol as the transmission bottom layer and satisfies the special transmission
requirements of the SCN signaling by adding extra functions.
The SIGTRAN protocol stack comprises two types of protocols:
l Transmission protocols: including SCTP and IP
l Adaptation protocols: including M3UA
Figure 4-12 shows the model of the SIGTRAN protocol stack.

IP: Internet Protocol MAC: Media Access Control

Client/Server Working Mode of the SCTP Association
The SIGTRAN protocol uses the SCTP as the transport layer. Since the SCTP association works
in client/server mode, to ensure normal function of the SIGTRAN protocol, the working mode
of each device in the SCTP association must be specified. In the normal situation, when a device
serves as a signaling gateway, in an SCTP association, configure the device as the server and
the peer device as the client.
Symmetry and Asymmetry Networking Modes of the M3UA Protocol
It is assumed that two devices communicate with each other through the SIGTRAN protocol. If
the application server (AS) is used at the local end and the signaling gateway (SG) is used at the
peer end, this type of networking is called asymmetry networking mode. If the AS or SG is used
at both ends, this type of networking is called symmetry networking mode.
In the SIGTRAN protocol family, the protocols such as M2UA, V5UA, and IUA support only
the asymmetry networking mode. The M3UA protocol supports both the symmetry and
asymmetry networking modes.
M3UA Local Entity
An M3UA local entity is a logical entity. It implements some special functions at the local end.
An M3UA local entity includes the configuration information that affects its own functional
features. For example, you can configure an M3UA local entity as an SG. An M3UA local entity
is identified by an SPC and a unique local entity number.
As the SS7 MTP3-user adaptation layer, M3UA provides basic call services for MTP3 users
over IP network. It applies to the access device such as an SG at the edge of a network. M3UA
implements the interworking between TDM SS7 and IP. In addition, it provides end-to-end
communication between MTP3 users, thus implementing signaling interaction in the IP core
network.

Issue 04 (2009-01-15)
M3UA Destination Entity
An M3UA destination entity is a logical entity connecting with an M3UA local entity. According
to the link connection mode, M3UA destination entities can be classified into:
l Adjacent M3UA destination entity
l Non-adjacent M3UA destination entity
An M3UA destination entity can be an AS, SG, or SP. Similar to an M3UA local entity, an
M3UA destination entity is identified by an SPC and a unique destination entity number.
M3UA Link Set
An M3UA link set is the collection of all M3UA links between a local entity and an adjacent
destination entity.
M3UA Route
An M3UA route is a transmission path between a local entity and a destination entity. In the
local end, an M3UA route maps an M3UA link set. Thus, the M3UA route sets up the association
between an M3UA destination entity and an M3UA link set. Each configured M3UA destination
entity sets up an M3UA route to an adjacent destination entity through the specified M3UA link
set. When an M3UA link set is active, its mapping M3UA route is available. Otherwise, the
M3UA route is unavailable.
M3UA Link
An M3UA link is a communication path established after an SCTP connection is set up. Each
M3UA link connects two SCTP endpoints. The IP addresses and the port numbers of the two
SCTP endpoints uniquely identify an SCTP connection and also an M3UA link. An M3UA link
can be configured as a client link or a server link. The configuration mode determines the setup
of an SCTP connection. The link at the client end sets up SCTP connections, and the link at the
server end receives connection requests. Therefore, to set up an SCTP connection successfully,
you must configure one SCTP end as a client and the other end as a server. An M3UA link
belongs to an M3UA link set.
Application Server
An AS is a logical entity serving the specific routing keyword.
l If an AS serves as a virtual switching unit, it processes the calls from all SCN trunks
identified by the DPC, OPC, and CIC in the SS7 network.
l If an AS serves as a virtual database, it processes the transactions identified by the DPC,
OPC, and SCCP_SSN combination in the SS7 network.
Each AS contains a set of unique application server processes (ASPs), of which one or more
active ASPs process services.
Application Server Process
An ASP is a process instance of an AS. Each ASP can be an active or a standby process of an
AS. For example, an ASP can be an MGC, IP SCP, or IP HLR process. Each ASP contains an
SCTP endpoint and can serve a number of ASs.

IP Server Process
An IP service process (IPSP) is an IP-based process instance. The IPSP is essentially the same
as the ASP. The difference is that the IPSP uses point-to-point M3UA rather than SG services.
Signaling Gateway
A signaling gateway (SG) receives or sends SS7 upper-layer user messages at the edge of the
IP and SS7 networks. An SG is an SP in the SS7 network. It contains one or more signaling
gateway processes (SGPs). When an SG contains several SGPs, it is a logical entity. The SGPs
of the SG are coordinated to independent management views for the SS7 network and the
supported AS.
Signaling Gateway Process
An SGP is a process instance of an SG. It can serve as an active, a standby, or a load-sharing
process of an SG.
4.1.4 SCCP-Specific Concepts
Working Mode of an SCCP DSP
An SCCP DSP can work in the following three modes:
l Independent working mode
In this mode, the DSP does not have a standby DSP.
l Active/standby working mode
In this mode, the DSP is configured with a standby SP. During routing, if the DSP is
available, SCCP sends messages to the DSP directly. If the DSP is unavailable, SCCP sends
messages to the standby DSP.
l Load-sharing working mode
In this mode, the DSP is also configured with a standby SP. During routing, if the two DSPs
are available, SCCP sends messages to them alternatively. If only one DSP is available,
SCCP sends all the messages to that DSP.
An SCCP DSP can map multiple virtual OSPs in the local office. SCCP uses the cyclic mode
for processing the messages destined for the DSP. That is, SCCP sequentially selects the virtual
OSPs mapping the DSP, one at a time, as the OPC for the MTP message.
SCCP Subsystem
As the local addressing information used by SCCP, a subsystem number (SSN) identifies the
SCCP users of the same network node. If the network node does not serve as an STP only, you
must assign an SSN to each SCCP subsystem (SCCP user). The SSN is unique in the entire
network. Inside a signaling network, an SSN is used as the address of a subsystem.
SCCP users can be classified into two types:
l SCCP users of the local SP, that is, local subsystems
l SCCP users of other SPs, that is, remote subsystems
For different network nodes, you need to assign subsystems based on users. In addition, you
need to set up subsystems for the remote SCCP users under the control of the local SCCP.

SCCP Route
l Address information
The address formats available for SCCP are as follows:
DPC
DPC + SSN/GT (or both)
A DPC is the destination point code used by MTP.
An SSN identifies the SCCP users of the same node.
A GT is usually a dial-up number, for example, an international phone number, a national
phone number, or a mobile directory number (MDN). The GT does not directly reflect the
routing information in the signaling network. Thus, the address information can only be
obtained through GT translation.
Different from the DPC, which is valid only in the defined signaling network, the GT is
valid globally. The address scope of the GT is much larger than that of the DPC. The GT
enables transmission of circuit-unrelated messages between two SPs worldwide. The
powerful addressing capability of the GT is an important feature of SCCP.
l GT type
The type of a GT is indicated by the GT indicator in the SCCP calling and called addresses.
Table 4-4 lists an example of the GT indicator.

0: SCCP selects the routing mode according to the GT in the address field.
1: SCCP selects the routing mode according to the DPC in the MTP routing identifier
and the SSN in the called address.
Bit 8: reserved.
l SCCP routing principles
Both the MTP and SCCP layers have the signaling routing function. The MTP layer selects
routes according to the SPC, and the SCCP layer obtains the SPC of the peer end through
GT translation and then sends the SPC to the MTP layer for routing.
The following describes routing of the connectionless messages:
Messages from the MTP layer
If the routing indicator bit is 1 (routing based on DPC + SSN), the current node is the
destination of the message. If the SSN is found existing, the message is sent to the
corresponding user part according to its type.
If the routing indicator bit is 0 (routing based on GT), the GT is translated. After the
GT translation, the called address is in the format of DPC + SSN (or new GT).
Messages from the SCCP layer
If the address of the message contains a DPC, and the DPC does not denote the current
node, the message is sent to the MTP.
If the address of the message contains a DPC, and the DPC denotes the current node,
the message is sent to the SCCP user according to the SSN.
If the message does not contain a DPC, GT translation is required.
GT Translation
All signaling messages are transmitted through the MTP layer of an SS7 network. In the SS7
network, the MTP address comprises the SPC and network identifier. In the PLMN network,
4 Signaling Data Configuration

Issue 04 (2009-01-15)
however, the destination addresses of signaling messages are usually indicated by other
information such as the HLR number and MDN. In addition, the addresses are also used in the
networks of other countries. Therefore, a function is required to translate the information into
signaling addresses. The conversion process is called GT translation, which is a function
provided by SCCP.
SCCP can use the information to obtain the called address of an SCCP message and provide an
address addressable by MTP.
The GT is a universally unique address. SCCP can use the GT for message addressing.
Table 4-5 lists the possible components of a GT.
Table 4-5 GT components
Component Value
GT value A number that contains up to 24 digits
Numbering plan 0001: ISDN/phone code plan (E.164)
Encoding scheme 0001: BCD code (odd numbers)
0010: BCD code (even numbers)
Address natures 0000001: subscriber number
0000011: national number
0000100: international number
Translation type 0000: not defined
These components determine how to translate GT numbers.
The GT translation produces a new DPC and possibly an SSN (or a GT). The new SSN or GT
is contained in a called address, and the new DPC is transferred to MTP for message routing.
Table 4-6 lists the mapping between the translation result and the routing indicator.

GT Addressing
When two SPs transfer MAP messages through GT addressing, the two SPs are not connected
in quasi-associated mode. Instead, an STP is configured between the two SPs. The STP performs
GT translation to the signaling messages before sending them out, as shown in Figure 4-13.

the GT. The translation result is in the DPC + SSN format. The DPC is the signaling point code
of SP B, and the SSN is the subsystem number of SP B. The SCCP layer of the STP sends the
message to the MTP layer of the STP, which then transfers the message to SP B.

NOTE
l Whether GT addressing or DPC addressing is adopted between two SPs depends on the actual
requirements of the carrier.
l The DPC addressing mode imposes fewer load on the STP than the GT addressing mode. If the DPC
addressing mode is adopted, you need to configure more data.
l The functional entities that need to exchange MAP messages with the HLR include the MSC, SMC,
and SCP.
4.1.5 Signaling Data Configuration Principles
To ensure the security of the network, observe the following principles when configuring the
link and routing data:
1. The links belonging to the same office must be evenly configured on different modules.
The number of links configured on a module cannot exceed the maximum number of links.
2. When multiple routes are configured, correctly configure the selection masks of link sets
and links, thus avoiding the unbalanced load among links.
3. Configure at least two routes working in load-sharing or active/standby mode for a DSP.
Avoid configuring a single route for a DSP.

4.6 SCCP Data Configuration Procedure
4.6.1 SCCP Data Configuration Principles
4.6.2 SCCP Data Table Relation
4.6.1 SCCP Data Configuration Principles
When configuring the SCCP data, observe the following principles:
l If the DPC addressing is adopted, set the SCCP DSP first and then the SCCP Subsystem
table. In addition, ensure that the data configured in the SCCP DSP table and SCCP
Subsystem table matches that configured at the peer end.
l Ensure that the DPCs in the SCCP Subsystem table are valid values defined in the SCCP
DSP table or in the Local Office Information table.
l If the GT addressing is adopted, add GTs as follows:
Configure the SCCP DSP table and SCCP Subsystem table (if necessary).
Add a New GT table (optional).
Set GTs based on the translation type.
l Ensure that the DPCs in the GT Translation table are valid values defined in the SCCP
DSP table or in the Local Office Information table.
