Upcoming

This course provides the student with knowledge of SS7oIP architectures as well as a background in next generation telephony architectures. The focus of the course is the SigTran protocols that enable C7/SS7 protocols to be run over IP networks; namely the SCTP, M2UA, M2PA, M3UA, IUA, and SUA protocols. In addition an overview of the ITU BICC protocol will be provided.

The course begins by covering architectural elements including Application Servers, Virtual Switching Elements, Virtual Database Elements, Media Gateways, Media Gateway Controllers, Signalling Gateways, and Routing Keys. How these elements interact to provide signalling in an IP domain is further detailed. After architectural coverage the functions and features the SCTP protocol is provided. The C7/SS7 related SigTran protocols are then individually presented including the functions provided by each protocol layer and seamless C7/SS7 message transmission to an IP domain.

Required background information, technical standards, including network architecture, and call models are detailed.
