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 […]

Australia is a strange country; As a kid I was scared of dogs, and in response, our family got a dog. This year started off with adventures working with ASN.1 encoded data, and after a week of banging my head against the table, I was scared of ASN.1 encoding. But now I love dogs, and […]

A look into the signalling messages between Network elements in an Evolved Packet Core exchanged during the Attach Procedure
These posts focus on the use of Diameter and SIP in an IMS / VoLTE context, however these practices can be equally applied to other networks. The Registration-Termination Request / Answer allow a Diameter Client (S-CSCF) to indicate to the HSS (Diameter Server) that it is no longer serving that user and the registration has […]
The Diameter User-Authorization-Request and User-Authorization-Answer commands are used as the first line of authorization of a user and to determine which Serving-CSCF to forward a request to.
