What it does

The Rhino VoLTE TAS acts as a gateway for USSD Using IP (USSI) messages. SIP messages containing USSD payloads are processed by the Rhino VoLTE TAS and forwarded to the HLR over the MAP protocol. Responses are then encoded back into SIP and sent to the invoking subscriber.

This feature is enabled alongside the IP-SM-GW, and will be present if that service is configured.

Aside from network integration, the only configuration possible for USSI is to reject all incoming traffic.

Note The USSI only supports MAP-based SS7 protocols. CDMA networks are not supported.


The example for sentinel-ipsmgw-config.yaml shows example configuration relevant to USSI in the sentinel-ipsmgw/map-messaging and sentinel-ipsmgw/ussi sections.
