Signaling System #7 (SS7) Training Course

Signaling system 7 Certification Training Course Overview

Enroll for Signaling System No 7 (SS7) training course from Koenig Solutions. This course introduces SS7 training. Signaling System-7 training is the hands-down choice for engineers, network managers and other professionals everywhere. It gives you a detailed understanding of the signaling network, its architecture, and the protocols used to communicate through it and its evolution to next generation networks. Various Topics such as SIGTRAN, IMS and SIP are also covered.

SS7 or Common Channel Signaling System No. 7 (i.e., SS7 or C7) is a global signaling standard for telecommunications defined by ITU-T specifying the procedures and mechanisms to call setup, routing and control over PSTN and Mobile networks. Example of applications using SS7 are: PSTN and cellular networks (i.e. GSM, CDMA) call setup, management, and tear down, LNP, toll-free calls, wireless roaming, IN/AIN and CAMEL.

SS7 Signaling Points:
SSP (Service Switching Point)
STP (Signal Transfer Point)
SCP (Service Control Point)

Target Audience:

The course is intended for network engineers and anyone who needs technical knowledge on functionality of SIGTRAN and possibilities of SS7 messages transmission over IP network.

Learning Objectives
SS7 stack architecture and logical correlation with OSI model
Functioning of SS7 layers – MTP, SCCP, ISUP, TCAP, MAP, CAP
Definition of links, link-sets, route, route-sets
Logical understanding on E1 bit-rates, PCM frame structure
SS7 Signaling units structures and associated link capacity
