Gateway control protocol: Guidelines for packet-based streams
|Publication Date:||1 February 2012|
This Recommendation defines guidelines for handling ITU-T H.248 Streams that use a packetbased network as their underlying bearer technology. Two significant points are covered by the guidelines:
1) How packets incoming into the MG are classified to a specific combination of Stream, Termination and Context.
2) In what order different operations (usually controlled by different packages) are applied to incoming and outgoing packets.
Furthermore, this Recommendation:
3) Provides qualitative statements concerning generic processing costs on packet handling.
4) Discusses in more detail the classification and filtering of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)/Internet Protocol (IP) traffic.
ITU-T H.248.79 relates to other ITU-T H.248.x-series Recommendations on packet processing as follows. Packet classification rules (clause 6), packet filtering rules (e.g., clause 9 and [ITU-T H.248.43]), packet address adaptation rules [ITU-T H.248.37], packet marking rules [ITU-T H.248.52], packet/traffic policing rules ([ITU-T H.248.53], [ITU-T H.248.76]) and packet measurement rules (e.g., clause 8 and [ITU-T H.248.61]) are related to this Recommendation. Other packet processing rules may also be applicable.
