We are familiar with SCCP Reassembly layer in SS7 world (for XUDT/ XUDTS/ LUDT/ LUDTS etc). But, is there such a thing called TCAP Reassembly that is done within TCAP layer itself? We've encountered an example in which the SCCP layer type is UDTS with length < 254 and the length inside TCAP layer (ITU) is ~400 bytes.

Can anyone advice?

UDT is conection less -right? TCAP standard Q.773 has this comment The user should be aware of total message length limitations when using TCAP in the SS No. 7 connectionless environment.

A take this to mean that you can't send a TCAP message bigger than the max number of data in a UDT message, in an UDT message. I think segmentation has to take place in the transport layer.
