[M2UA, IUA] Stream to be used for ASPTM messages
2010-03-03 13:56:09 GMT
Which stream has to be used for ASPTM messages in M2UA and IUA ?
M2UA RFC(3331) states:
In section 4.2.1All MGMT messages, except BEAT and BEAT Ack, SHOULD be sent with sequenced delivery to ensure ordering. All MGMT messages, with the exception of ASPTM, BEAT and BEAT Ack messages, SHOULD be sent on SCTP stream '0'. All ASPTM messages SHOULD be sent on the stream which normally carries the data traffic to which the message applies. BEAT and BEAT Ack messages MAY be sent using out-of-order delivery,
and MAY be sent on any stream.
===>As per this ASPTM should be sent on stream (other than 0)
On section 220.127.116.11 SCTP Stream Management SCTP Stream '0' SHOULD NOT be used for MTP2 User Adaptation (MAUP) messages (see Section 3) since stream '0' SHOULD only be used for ASP Management (ASPM) messages (see Section 4.3.3).And RFC explains all the ASPSM/ASPTM messages as ASPM messages. So there seems to be a contradiction here in RFC.
===>As per this ASPTM should be sent on stream 0
And for IUA is SCTP stream management aligned(same as) with M2UA ?
