Technical Summary
 
This document defines a mechanism for backhauling Digital Private Network 
Signaling System 1 (DPNSS 1) and Digital Access Signaling System 2 (DASS 2) 
messages over IP by extending the ISDN User Adaptation (IUA) Layer Protocol 
defined in RFC 3057.  DPNSS 1, specified in BTNR 188, is used to interconnec
Private Branch Exchanges (PBX) in a private network and DASS 2, specified in 
BTNR 190, is used to connect PBXs to the PSTN.  This document aims to become 
an Appendix to IUA and to be the base for a DPNSS 1/DASS 2 User Adaptation 
(DUA) implementation.
