Duration 2 Days

The Internet Protocol (IP) lies at the heart of the transformation affecting almost every aspect of telecommunication network operation. This technology is designed to route data packets between data networks in a resilient way. Initially, it became globally significant because of its role as the routing technology in the Internet. However, IP, and many other closely related protocols and technologies, are today being incorporated into structured fixed and mobile telecommunication networks.


Familiarity with the PSTN architecture and SS7 signalling protocols, particularly MTP and SCCP, together with some knowledge of the TCP/IP protocol suite.

Delegates will learn how to

Why SIGTRAN Potential SS7 and IP interworking scenarios SIGTRAN Protocols SIGTRAN in circuit-related and non-circuit-related signalling scenarios Stream Control Transmission protocol (SCTP) SCTP architecture, operation, procedures and terminology MTP2 Peer-to-Peer Adaptation (M2PA) layer MTP3 User Adaptation (M3UA) layer MTP2 User Adaptation (M2UA) layer SCCP User Adaptation (SUA) layer Adaptation layer architecture, operations, procedures and resilience models Analysis of SIGTRAN operation using Wireshark


The drive towards all IP networking necessitates the transport SS7 protocols over an IP domain. This course provides a thorough explanation how this is achieved using the SIGTRAN 'toolkit'
