  • 4. 4www.eng.it Ulticom’s Signalware SIGTRAN Overview » SIGTRAN (SIGnalling TRANsport) is a Framework Architecture for Signaling Transport defined by IETF within the SIGTRAN working group (RFC2719 – Oct 1999) » The framework defines the architecture and the functional requirements for transport of signalling information over IP. » A major application of SIGTRAN framework concerns SS7 signalling; in this case, a set of protocols (Adaptation Layers) has been defined by SIGTRAN WG (xxUA, xxPA protocols). » Besides, the specific needs of signalling transport over a connection-less, unreliable packet network, have led to the introduction of a new transport protocol (SCTP)
  • 5. 5www.eng.it Signalware SIGTRAN Architecture » Signalware SIGTRAN is an integrated platform that provides an environment for the development and deployment of SS7 applications and services over IP » Signalware is a middleware between the platform (HW platform/OS) and the applications. » In order to grant high availability and scalability, HW platform is a cluster made up by 1 to 8 CEs (Computer Equipments), which loadshare traffic and minimize service disruption. » Applications may be configured to run on 1 to 8 LNs (Logical Nodes) - LN:an instance of a protocol stack and a unique Point Code (PC). » Applications exploit an API to access Signalware transport service (legacy SS7/MTP or IP based transport) HW platform/Operating System Signalware LN SS7 Application LN SS7 Application CE1 CEn… …
  • 6. 6www.eng.it Signalware architecture in NP application » The NP application is built on top of Signalware: » The stack is hosted on a single IBM x3755 server with Solaris 10 Operating System (FMP node) » The whole NP solution consists of several applications running over Signalware platform » Signalware provides M3UA/SCCP layers, while above layers are part of the NP application (SCTP is embedded in Solaris 10) IBM x3755 / Solaris 10 Signalware LN SS7 Application (Atos Platform, FMRDB, NP, SSA) CE xxFMP0x

  • 8. 8www.eng.it SCTP Overview » Stream Control Transmission Protocol » IETF standard - RFC 2960 Stream Control Transmission Protocol (October 2000) - RFC 3309 Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) Checksum Change (September 2002) - RFC 4960 Stream Control Transmission Protocol (September 2007) - RFC 4460 (*) Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) Specification, Errata and Issues (September 2007) (*) Signalware is compliant with RFC2960 and RFC3309, compliance with RFC4960 is still not implemented (no compatibility issues)
  • 9. 9www.eng.it SCTP Overview » SCTP is a reliable transport protocol operating specifically designed for signalling transport on top of a connectionless packet network such as IP » TCP is not suited for signalling transport (why?) » SCTP features » Connection oriented (associations) - Heartbeats - Flow Control » Message based » Orderered and out of order message sending (within streams) - No head-of-line blocking » Multihoming - Increased robustness against TCP » DoS Protection - Cookies - 4-way handshake

  • 14. 14www.eng.it M3UA Overview » Message Transfer Part 3 (MTP3) - User Adaptation Layer » IETF standard - RFC 3332Signaling System 7 (SS7) Message Transfer Part 3 (MTP3) – User Adaptation Layer (M3UA) (September 2002) - RFC 4666Signaling System 7 (SS7) Message Transfer Part 3 (MTP3) – User Adaptation Layer (M3UA) (September 2006) (*) Minor changes between RFC3332 and RFC4666 (same protocol version, i.e. 1.0) (**)Signalware is compliant with RFC3332, compliance with RFC4666 is still not implemented (no compatibility issues)
  • 15. 15www.eng.it M3UA Overview » M3UA supports the transport of SS7 MTP3 user signaling over IP using the services of the SCTP: » The list of these protocol layers includes, but is not limited to, ISUP, SCCP, and telephone user part (TUP) » The M3UA layer provides the same interface to its upper layer as MTP3 does: - In this way, MTP3 user is not aware that MTP3 services are offered remotely from an MTP3 layer at an SG, and not by a local MTP3 layer. - Similarly, MTP3 layer at the SG may also be unaware that its local users are actually remote user parts over M3UA. - In practice, the M3UA extends access to the MTP3 layer services to a remote IP–based application.
  • 16. 16www.eng.it M3UA Network Scenarios » Two distinct scenarios: » AS-SG interconnection - In the AS, M3UA replaces MTP3, allowing ISUP, SCCP and TCAP based application to operate without an underlying SS7 network(*) - In the SG, M3UA gives SS7 network access to applications located on IP networks (i.e. it enables signaling transport between SS7 network and new-generation IP networks) » IPSP-IPSP interconnection -M3UA enables SS7 applications in an all-IP environment (same as an AS without an SS7 network) (*) The AS may or may not have an own Signalling Point Code (e.g the PC may not be needed if there is one-to-one correspondence between AS and SG) Legacy SS7 node (e.g. MSC) xxAP NIF MTP3 MTP2 MTP1 M3UA SCTP IP M3UA SCTP IP xxAP TCAP SCCP Application Server (AS)Signalling Gateway (SG) SS 7 SS 7 IPIP TCAP SCCP MTP3 MTP2 MTP1 M3UA SCTP IP xxAP TCAP SCCP IP Signalling Point (IPSP) IPIP M3UA SCTP IP xxAP TCAP SCCP IP Signalling Point (IPSP)
  • 17. 17www.eng.it M3UA Key Concepts » Application Server (AS) A logical entity handling a specific type of traffic (e.g. a virtual data base element, or the FMP node in the NP Network Scenario). The AS contains a set of one or more unique Application Server Processes, of which one or more is normally actively processing traffic. » Application Server Process (ASP) A process instance handling traffic for an AS » Signaling Gateway (SG) Virtual entity that acts as a bridge between IP and SS7 networks. It is perceived as an SS7 Point Code within the SS7 network. » Signaling Gateway Process (SGP) Process instance handling traffic within the SG » IP Server Process (IPSP) An ASP that interacts with other ASPs (instead of SGPs). » Routing Key (RK) Set of SS7 parameters that identify the type of traffic handled by an AS (DPC, SI,…). An AS registers a RK with a SG or with another AS (there is one-to-one correspondence between an AS and a RK) » Routing Context (RC) 32 bits RK identifier
  • 18. 18www.eng.it M3UA Messages » Management messages (ERR, NOTIFY) » Transfer Messages (DATA) » SS7 Signalling Network Management (SSNM) messages (DUNA, DAVA, DAUD, SCON, DUPU, DRST) » ASP State Maintenance (ASPSM) messages (ASPUP, ASPDN, BEAT, ASPUP ACK, ASPDN ACK, BEAT ACK) » ASP Traffic Maintenance (ASPTM) messages (ASPAC, ASPIA, ASPAC ACK, ASPIA ACK) » Routing Key Management (RKM) messages (optional) (REG REQ, REG RSP, DEREG REQ, DEREG RSP)
  • 19. 19www.eng.it M3UA Activation (single ASP in single AS) » The assumption is that the SCTP association has been already established prior to M3UA message exchange » Routing Key Registration is optional (e.g. Eagle5 does not support it, static provisioning is needed) » The ASP Up message is used to indicate to the remote peer that M3UA is ready to receive any ASPSM/ASPTM messages for all Routing Keys that the ASP is configured to serve. » The ASP Active message is sent by an ASP to indicate to a remote M3UA peer that it is ready to process signalling traffic for a particular Application Server » As an example grey text reports Signalware MML commands that trigger M3UA ASPSM/ASPTM messages. RegReq (LRK=x,RK=y) RegRsp (LRK=x,RC=z) ASPUP ASPUP ACK ASP SGP ASPAC (RC=z) ASPAC ACK (RC=z) Notify (AS-ACTIVE) CREATE-M3UA-RKEY ACTIVATE-M3UA-RKEY ACTIVATE-M3UA-LSET Notify (AS-INACTIVE)
  • 20. 20www.eng.it M3UA Activation (2 ASP in single AS, Loadsharing) » The graph on the left depicts a scenario with 2 ASPs in a single Application Server, which: » handle traffic in loadsharing mode (ASPAC message): - this means that the SGP can direct traffic to all ASPs active at a certain moment in time, choosing them according to an implementation dependent algorithm. » are configured in “1+1” sparing: - More generally, failover model supports an "n+k" redundancy model, where "n" ASPs is the minimum number of redundant ASPs required to handle traffic and "k" ASPs are available to take over for a failed or unavailable ASP. ASPUP ASPUP ACK ASP1 SGP ASPAC (LoadSHR) ASPAC ACK Notify (AS-ACTIVE) ASP2 ASPUP ASPUP ACK ASPAC (LoadSHR) ASPAC ACK Notify (AS-ACTIVE)

  • 28. 28www.eng.it Signalware characteristics & capabilities » The main provisioning limits affecting Signalware M3UA configuration are reported below: - Up to 8 Logical Nodes (LN) - Up to 256 M3UA links per CE for all nodes - Up to 32 SCTP streams per association - Up to 10,000 Route SETs (RSETs) per platform node - Up to 255 Link SETs (LSETs) per platform node - Up to 16 LSETs per RSET - Up to 4,095 Routing Keys per platform node (default is 512) - Outbound GTT entry number is in range [1000 - 20000] (default is 1000) - Inbound GTT entry number defaults to 200
  • 29. 29www.eng.it Signalware Configuration » There are several configuration files, located in $OMNI_HOME/conf (i.e. /users/omni/conf on xxFMP0y nodes). » Values specified here overwrite default configuration parameters: - omni_conf_info Definition of general Signalware parameters, such as: MEAS_30MIN_TIMER=5 (interval interval by which 30-minute protocol measurements are collected) - usam_conf_info Definition of USAM specific parameters, which is the Signalware SCTP association manager for M3UA and SUA., such as: MAX_NB_THREAD=127 (Maximum number of threads in charge of establishing outbound SCTP associations) - m3ua_conf_info.<SHM> Definition of M3UA specific parameters, such as: M3UA_SLK_ADDR_SORTED=FALSE (If FALSE, SCTP addresses are kept as provisioned by CREATE-M3UA-SLK MML command → SCTP primary path ) SCTP_PATH_REXMIT=2 (maximun path retransmission) SCTP_HB_INTERVAL=500000 (Heartbeat interval set to 500 ms) » For each file there is a detailed man page which provides an explanation for all configuration parameters » When changes are made to those files, Signalware must be terminated and restarted
  • 30. 30www.eng.it Signalware Configuration » Signalware over Solaris 10 exploits the SCTP protocol stack embedded in the Operating System: » Some configuration parameters must be configured directly in the Kernel (Solaris SCTP tunable parameters): - /etc/init.d/ndd-set (or similar startup script) ndd –set /dev/sctp sctp_pa_max_retr 4 Controls the maximum number of retransmissions (over all paths) for an SCTP association. The SCTP association is closed when this number is exceeded. » Priority order when considering SCTP Configuration Parameters - SCTP tunable parameters - m3ua_conf_info settings overwrite previous ones - MML commands specific settings overwrite all the previous ones (association specific parameters in CREATE-M3UA-SLK command)
  • 31. 31www.eng.it Signalware Operation » NP application requires that Signalware is controlled through the Solaris Service Management facility (not started manually): » Services: svc:/application/Ulticom/DFdaemon:default svc:/application/Ulticom/Signalware:default controls respectively the Ulticom Distributed File System and the core Signalware processes » Manifest files are stored in /var/svc/manifest/application/Ulticom/ » Signalware is started through: /usr/sbin/svcadm enable DFdaemon /usr/sbin/svcadm enable Signalware and stopped through: /usr/sbin/svcadm disable Signalware /usr/sbin/svcadm disable DFdaemon » Status can be checked through: svcs DFdaemon svcs Signalware

  • 55. 55www.eng.it Why TCP is not suited for signalling transport? » TCP provides both reliable data transfer and strictly ordered delivery of data: » Some applications need reliable transfer without sequence maintenance, while others would be satisfied with partial ordering of the data. » In both of these cases, the head-of-line blocking offered by TCP causes unnecessary delay. » TCP is stream-oriented, not message-oriented. Applications must: » add their own record marking to delineate their messages, and » make explicit use of the PSH facility to ensure that a complete message is transferred in a reasonable time » Poor robustness against failures: » No support of multi-homed hosts » Vulnerability against denial-of-service attacks: » e.g. SYN attacks Back

This number is negotiated with the remote end. » No Head-Of_Line blocking → while one stream may be blocked waiting for the next in-sequence user message, delivery from other streams may proceed. » SCTP provides also a mechanism for unordered delivery.

Back
  • 59. 59www.eng.it User Data Fragmentation » For transmission efficiency, SCTP defines mechanisms for bundling of small user messages and fragmentation of large user messages: » When converting user messages into DATA chunks, an endpoint will fragment user messages larger than the current association Path MTU into multiple DATA chunks. The data receiver will normally reassemble the fragmented message from DATA chunks before delivery to the user. » Fragmentation is performed end-to-end (IPv4 supports only hop-by-hop fragmentation, which is less efficient) » Path MTU can be statically provisioned - Some implementations supports also a mechanism for Path MTU discovery.
