My UE is sending message in form of IS-637-A protocol. Its a SIP request:Message. Wireshark is able to decode the user data. I want to know the decoding machanism so that I will be able to decode that mesasge without help of wireshark. I am devloping an application which will decode the message and come out with user data.

Need your help. Thanks in advance in any suggestion

Have a look in packet-ansi_637.c it registers for application/vnd.3gpp2.sms which I assume this is and the content from the SIP message gets translated in dissect_ansi_637_trans_app() which calls dissect_ansi_637_trans().

A link to the file (from the development version of Wireshark) is here. Note that the code is GPL licensed so your own application must use a compatible license.
