Signaling System #7, Sixth Edition

by: Travis Russell


Abstract: The most complete, current guide to Signaling System #7 (SS7). Thoroughly updated to cover the latest advances in the telecommunications industry, Signaling System #7, Sixth Edition, addresses the impact of emerging technologies and applications, such as Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and 4G networks, on SS7. An all-new chapter on Diameter discusses how to successfully implement SS7-to-Diameter interfaces to bridge 3G and 4G networks. Real-world examples, protocol message details, call flows, and effective migration strategies are included in this practical guide. Comprehensive coverage includes: • The SS7 network—international and national planes • The OSI model • SS7 protocols and the protocol stack • Signal units • Message Transfer Part (MTP), including level 3 • Signaling transport (SIGTRAN) • ISDN User Part (ISUP) • Signaling Connection Control Part (SCCP) • Transaction Capabilities Application Part (TCAP) • The evolution to Diameter
