NAMEbicc - Bearer Independent Call Control (BICC) Device Driver
BICC is implemented as a STREAMS(4) multiplexing driver. mtp(4), m3ua(4), tali(4) or sscop(4) streams are linked under the BICC multiplexing driver using the I_LINK or I_PLINK commands of streamio(7), to provide network services to BICC. Once linked, the streams must be configured using bicc_ioctl(4) IO controls. This function is normally performed by the SS7 configuration daemon, ss7confd(8). See also, bicc(8).
BICC provides the following stream types. To select one of the stream types, the device argument to the open(2) call can be one of the following:
Unlike other SS7 protocol modules and drivers tat the transport level, BICC does not provide a sockets(3) interface. THis is because the special needs of call control are divorced from the sockets paradigm.
All interfaces support a set of Local Management Interface IO controls using ioctl(2) and I_STR streamio(7) system calls on the bicc_stream file descriptor. The common Local Management Interface IO commands are described in lmi_ioctl(4). The management structure and constant definitions for BICC are described in bicc_ioctl(4).
The BICC interface is specific to the OpenSS7 SS7(4) stack. This is Version 2 of the interface.
