Creating MTP3 Links (M2PA)

Applies to version(s): v2.5, v2.6.

Now that you have created an MTP3 linkset, you must create MTP3 links for it. This can be done from the MTP3 linkset configuration window. A linkset is used to logically combine multiple MTP3 links going to the same DPC into a single entity. One linkset could be comprised of the links between a point code identifying the Tmedia/Tdev SS7 node and a point code identifying the adjacent SS7 equipment.

To create an MTP3 link:

1- Click Create New Mtp3 Link in the MTP3 linkset configuration window
