h1. OsmoSTP 

 The Osmocom Signal Transfer Point is    a SS7 Transfer Point implementing MTP routing as well as SIGTRAN SG (Signaling Gateway) functionality. 

 The program is currently part of the [[libosmo-sccp:]] git repository, as it is basically just a small main loop + VTY interface wrapped around the libosmo-sigtran code. 

 h2. SIGTRAN protocol support 

 OsmoSTP supports all transport protocols implemented in [[libosmo-sigtran:]].    At time of this writing (October 2017), this includes: 
 * SCTP + M3UA + SCCP 
 * SCTP + SUA 
 * IPA + SCCP (experimental 

 We're looking for contributions/funding to add more protocols like M2UA, M2PA 

 h2. Position in a typical Osmocom cellular network

 h2. traffic mode support 

 OsmoSTP currently only implements _override_ and doesn't implement the _load-share_ or _broadcast_ traffic modes. Contributions in whatever form are welcome.
