When is S1-AP over M2UA required?

+3 votes

I came across a S1-AP pcap, some time back, in which the SCTP dest port was M2UA but the PPID was 18(S1-AP). In what scenario is M2UA encapsulation over SCTP used when SCTP has 36412 port reserved for S1-AP? (I am trying to get hold of that pcap)

Never heard of something like this, and assume this happens then both eNB and MME need to have this. And what it will gain from M2UA specially which provides only SG-ASP mode....Put at some common location and share the pcap...

In case of hub-and-spoke topology, X2 messaging can travel all the way back to an aggregation point, which may be co-located with EPC. In such scenario both X2 and S1 traverses same physical path (a.k.a X2 over S1). Please consider both Intra-MME and Inter-MME handover scenarios. Would X2 based handover in such a case yield advantage over S1 based handover. Thanks.
