backtotop.gifTraining Course Description

Course Description

  • This training course addresses the needs of engineers and technicians who shall establish sophisticated and detailed knowledge about the Signaling System No 7 and the related protocol stack.
  • The training course explains in detail the lower layer of the SS7-protocol stack (MTP 1, MTP2 and MTP3) and lines out the format and parameters of the FISU, LSSU and MSU.
  • The training course continues with the SS7 network architecture and explains the tasks and functions of SP's, SCP's and STP's.
  • The next part focuses on the introduction of higher layers of the SS7-protocol stack like the SCCP, TCAP, TUP and ISUP.
  • Of training course, we integrated a chapter about Intelligent Networking (IN).
  • The training course has been updated and now also covers SIGTRAN which is manifested through the new protocols STCP and M3UA which provide for the routing of SCCP-messages over IP-networks, possibly encrypted.
  • The training course concludes with the practical examination of SS7-recording files in real life networks.
As in all INACON training courses we integrated several interactive exercises for a perfect learning experience.

Some of your questions that will be answered

  • How is routing performed in MTP 2 and 3 through OPC and DPC?
  • What does Change Over / Change Back stand for?
  • When and why are SCCP connection-less or connection-oriented services used by higher layers?
  • Why are points code sometimes provided in 4-3-4-3 syntax, other times in 3-8-3-syntax and yet at other times in hex?
  • How can I determine whether all our ISUP-trunks are load-shared?
