Technical Summary This document revises RFC3332, the Internet adaptation layer for the MTP3 (layer3 for SS7) protocol. The primary purpose of this protocol is to tunnel SS7control traffic (ISUP, etc) over IP, mostly for the sake of emulating SS7 signaling networks or building distributed SS7-IP gateways. This revision mostlyconsists of corrections and clarifications. Working Group Summary The SIGTRAN working group supported the advancement of this document without contention. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for the IESG by Jon Peterson and David Black (on behalf of GEN-ART). Note to RFC Editor Please add a note to the title page indicating that this document obsoletes RFC3332. Furthermore, append to the Abstract: NEW: This document obsoletes RFC3332.
