+/*! \defgroup gsup Generic Subscriber Update Protocol
+ * @{
+ *
+ * The Generic Subscriber Update Protocol (GSUP) is an Osmocom-specific
+ * non-standard protocol replacing MAP as the protocol between
+ * MSC/VLR/SGSN and HLR in a 3GPP cellular communications network.
+ *
+ * It was designed around the same transactions and architecture as the
+ * MAP messages/operations, but without the complexity of TCAP and MAP,
+ * and without the need for ASN.1 encoding.
+ *
+ * The purpose is to keep protocol complexity out of OsmoSGSN and
+ * OsmoMSC, while providing a clean path to an external GSUP to MAP
+ * translator.
