Technical Summary

  This memo defines a protocol for the transport of a number of telephony
  signaling protocols. Specifically it supports the transport of any
  Signaling Connection Control Part-User (SCCP-User) signaling protocols
  (e.g., Transaction Capabilities Protocol, Radio Access Network Application
  Protocol, etc.) over IP using the Stream Control Transport Protocol (SCTP)

  The protocol is modular and symmetric, to allow it to work in diverse
  architectures, such as a Signaling Gateway to IP Signaling Endpoint
  architecture as well as a peer-to-peer IP Signaling Endpoint architecture.
  Protocol elements have been included to allow operation between peers in 
  the Signaling System-7 (SS7) and IP domains.
