Getting to know IPfilterRules and the Flow-Description AVP
Since the beginning of time, SIP has used the 2xx responses to confirm all went OK. If you thought sending an SMS in a VoLTE/IMS network would see a 2xx OK response and then that’s the end of it, you’d be wrong. So let’s take a look into sending SMS over VoLTE/IMS networks! So our […]
As Open5Gs has introduced network slicing, which led to a change in the database used, Alas many users had subscribers provisioned in the old DB schema and no way to migrate the SDM data between the old and new schema, If you’ve created subscribers on the old schema, and now after the updates your Subscriber […]
I’d been trying for some time to get Kamailio acting as a Diameter Routing Agent with mixed success, and eventually got it working, after a few changes to the codebase of the ims_diameter_server module. It is rather unstable, in that if it fails to dispatch to a Diameter peer, the whole thing comes crumbling down, […]
