0  Introductionp. 7

Although network nodes in the IMS Core Network should have a very high availability, some maintenance downtime and occasional failures are unavoidable. Communication links although designed with robust protocols between the network elements are also subject to failures. This document specifies a set of standardized procedures for automatic restoration after loss or corruption of data reducing the impact of these problems in order to improve service to the users. The scenarios covered here for the IMS Domain are similar to those covered in TS 23.007 for the CS and PS Domains.

1  Scopep. 8

The present document specifies the procedures required in 3GPP IMS to handle a S-CSCF or a P-CSCF service interruption scenario with minimum impact to the service to the end user.

2  Referencesp. 8

The following documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of the present document.
  • References are either specific (identified by date of publication, edition number, version number, etc.) or non-specific.
  • For a specific reference, subsequent revisions do not apply.
  • For a non-specific reference, the latest version applies. In the case of a reference to a 3GPP document (including a GSM document), a non-specific reference implicitly refers to the latest version of that document in the same Release as the present document.

Service Interruption:
A period of time in which one or more network elements do not respond to requests and do not send any requests to the rest of the system.
S-CSCF Restoration Information:
Information required for the S-CSCF to handle traffic for a registered user. This information is stored in HSS and if lost, retrieved by the S-CSCF.
