A leading-edge, sought-after source in telecommunications, Travis Russell's Signaling System #7 provides a bedrock understanding of the signaling network, its architecture, and the protocols used to communicate through it. Accessible even to novices, Russell's guide also provides the technical details, protocol messages, and application examples so fundamentally helpful to developers, engineers, and network planners.
In this Internet-intensive edition, network-switching expert Russell brings his succinct, logical style to:
New coverage on VoIP and SS7-TCP/IP interactions. Solutions to protocol issues in migrating telecom to the Internet. Details on SS7 in broadband and cellular networking. Lucid explanations of protocols and network entities, with hands-on examples and applications. Clarifications of ANSI standards and Bellcore publications, with model solutions. New information on local number portability. Needed technical data for design and specifications.
Travis Russell's guide is a model of clarity and content, designed to help anyone understand the “why’s” and “how’s” of SS7, and to help technical professionals make the most of it. Bypassing heavy-handed engineering theory and mathematical derivations, each chapter presents a readable discussion, followed by technical details such as parameters, message structures, and bit values. Isn’t it time to see for yourself why Signaling System #7 is the hands-down choice for engineers and network managers everywhere?From the Back Cover:
The only complete guide to SS7-revised and updated. Don't rely on ANSI publications or Bellcore standards to learn SS7 from the inside out. Turn instead to this bestselling guide, now fully updated to reflect the latest changes in the SS7 signaling network and its cellular, broadband, and international applications. Inside you'll discover: a complete "short course" on SS7, its architecture, and protocols; specific technical data for design and specifications; ramifications of SS7 changes following the Telecommunications Act of 1996; practical analysis of Bellcore GR-246-CORE and other key specs; full coverage of the latest ITU standards for global SS7 use; insights into revised broadband ISUP protocols and procedures; an overview and explanation of local number portability (LNP) based on the SS7 protocols, which has been mandated by the FCC for deployment by telcos and wireless providers by 1999. Packed with real-world examples and applications, this hands-on guide is for everyone who works with SS7. Novices will find it readable and informative... engineers designing new products will embrace it as a useful reference and a refreshing break from the monotonous specifications used throughout the industry... and professionals in the field will find it such an invalulable working tool that they may even want to offer it to their customers.
