Why P-CSCF node can not send message directly to S-CSCF ? What could be the reason behind it ?
I observed that S-CSCF node can send SIP messages to P-CSCF directly but why P-CSCF can not do towards the S-CSCF ?

There could be one reason what I know that if SIP message doesn't carry Serve-Route information i.e. the address of S-CSCF , After receiving the SIP message at the P-CSCF, it forwards the SIP message to to I-CSCF. I-CSCF checks with HSS to get the relevant S-CSCF address.

How does PGW assign P-CSCF address for an UE during attach time ? Is there any consideration of UE's current location in the network or something else ? Is there any load balancing for P-CSCF ? If yes, then how it is done ?
