ETC – Establish Temporary Connection
It is common to physically locate gsmSRF within a stand alone IP (Intelligent Peripheral). This however requires the service control in the gsmSCF to establish a connection between the MSC and the IP. This is achieved using the ETC message between the gsmSCF and gsmSSF which in turn initiates a traffic channel to be set up between the MSC and the IP.
