Abstract

This document describes the IANA's allocation of a block of Diameter Command Codes for the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 5. This document does not pass judgment on the usage of these command codes. Further more, these command codes are for use for Release 5. For future releases, these codes cannot be reused, but must be allocated according to the Diameter Base specification.

RFC 3589 Diameter Command Codes for 3GPP Release 5 September 2003

1. Introduction

The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) is defining the

Internet Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) as part of their Release 5

architecture. As part of this architecture, they have defined a

Diameter application [29.229] and [29.329] which requires the use of

new Diameter Command Codes [DIAM].

2. Command Code Allocation

The IANA has allocated Diameter Command Codes 300 through 313, for

use in 3GPP Release 5. The protocols defined by these command codes

have not been carefully reviewed by the IETF community and are not

considered to be general mechanisms appropriate for broad usage.

More work is needed to develop general mechanisms and may become a

work item of an IETF Working Group. These command codes are intended

to be used for 3GPP Release 5 only [29.228], [29.229]. Future 3GPP

releases are expected to make use of alternate mechanisms.

Command codes for 3GPP Release 6 are expected to be allocated from

the standard command space, with IETF documentation. The current

intent as agreed with 3GPP is to develop a standards track

application addressing the needs of AAA for SIP/SDP and encompassing

the requirements of the...
