IMS: Does the PGW has static configuration of P-CSCF or dynamic ?

+3 votes

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 ?

In PGW usually multiple P-CSCF would be configured. This can be used for load balancing and for restoration purpose also, like primary and secondary

As per the specifications, the address of P-CSCF will be pre-configured in the UE. Where can we see the details in the handset settings? Is it part of the APN configuration?
