dynamic IPA ASPs
The traditional way of configuring ASP (Application Server Processes) in an STP/ITP, ncluding
osmo-stp is to manually / statically configure them in the configuration system. This doesn't easily scale.
osmo-stp already implements some parts of dynamic ASP creation for the M3UA protocol by
means of extending M3UA RKM (Routing Key Management).
This feature seeks to implement dynamic ASPs using the IPA/SCCPlite protocol. The key question
is how to identify/map a given incoming IPA connection (treated internally like a M3UA ASP) to a given AS. It is proposed to use the IPA CCM mechanism for this, so one of the UNIT_ID /
SERIAL_NR tags exchanged at IPA connection setup can be used as a look-up key to find the AS to
which this dynamic connection belongs.
