The Server Manager builds a topology of the deployed vIMS components. The topology objects represent the vIMS deployed VNFs, their relationships, and their association with tenants and virtual infrastructure.

CallSessionControlFunction

The Call Session Control Function (CSCF) in IMS comprises three distinct roles: the Proxy CSCF (P-CSCF), the Interrogating CSCF (I-CSCF), and the Serving CSCF (S-CSCF). The CSCF is implemented via servers using the SIP protocol to communicate with each other and application servers.
