3.1 Definitions

For the purposes of the present document, the following terms and definitions apply.

Address: term used for "network address" (IP address)

End-to-access edge security: media protection extending between an IMS UE and the first IMS core network node in the media path without being terminated by any intermediary node.

Port: term used for "transport port" (L4 port).

Transcoding: transcoding in general is the translation from one type of encoded media format to another different media format, e.g. G.711 A-law to μ-law or vice versa, G.729 to AMR with 4.75 rate.

NOTE 1: The definition of "transcoding" is according clause 3.10 of ITU-T Recommendation V.152 [23].

NOTE 2: Transcoding belongs to the category of "media aware" IP-to-IP interworking.

Transparent Forwarding: media gateway packet forwarding behaviour with the characteristic of Lx-PDU integrity. This is a unidirectional characteristic of an Lx-PDU flow.

NOTE 3: The definition is according clause 3.2.10 of ITU-T Recommendation H.248.88 [71].

NOTE 4: The semantic covers both traffic directions when applied on H.248 Streams (due to their inherent characteristic of bidirectionality).

Transport Address: term used for the combination of a Network Address and a Transport Port.

For the purposes of the present document, the following terms and definitions as defined in 3GPP TS 23.334 [23] apply:

ICE lite

Full ICE.

3.2 Symbols

For the purposes of the present document, the following symbols apply:

Iq Interface between the IMS Application Level Gateway (ALG) (IMS-ALG) and the IMS Access Gateway (IMS-AGW)
