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?
