F-link: Fully Associated Link
F-link refers to the SS7 fully associated link, which is an SS7 signaling link directly associated with a link carrying traffic. F-link connects two signaling end points (i.e., SSPs and SCPs). F-links are not usually used in networks with STPs. In networks without STPs, F-links directly connect signaling points.
