SS7 boards and systems

Boards and SIUs


Require a developer to write an application program SS7 components are scaleable; from small (single PC card) to large (4096/16384 circuit SS7 server) systems. The same Application Programming Interface (API) is used for the complete range

SS7 Protocol support


Full ITU-T and ANSI MTP1, 2, 3 ISUP SCCP TCAP INAP GSM-MAP IS41 (ANSI-41) TUP

Other national variants: NUP (UK-TUP) SSUTR-2 (France) Japanese ISUP China TUP

Single chassis approach

PCCS6 (ISA)
Dual PCM port (E1/T1) SS7 interface card for ISA systems.

Dual V.35 compatible option. 3 SS7 links Up to 16 cards may be installed in a single chassis. SCbus PCM highway. Protocol contained firmware downloaded at run-time.

PCCS6: Architecture

ISA options
Interface ports, either 2 E1 BNC 75 (unbalanced) OR 2 E1/T1 RJ45 120/100 (balanced) with optional V.35 compatible ports. Software

All protocol software may run within the SS7 card (for example ISUP or TUP or UK-TUP to control up to 1024 circuits).

For large multi-card systems higher protocol layers may run on the application processor. Windows, Linux

CPM8 (Octal span)


6U Compact PCI Rear transition, 8 E1 or T1 (software programmable), 4 x V.11 (V.35 compatible) Full hot swap in accordance with PICMG standards H.110 interface 4 SS7 links Win NT, Linux

PCI4, PCI2S
Full length PCI 4 E1 or T1 (software programmable), 2 V.11 (V.35 compatible) H.100 interface 4 SS7 links Win NT, Linux

cPCI/PCI architecture

Fault resilience
AIM : To eliminate single points of failure. There are many ways that redundancy can be introduced into a system More than one link in a link set - fault resilience is handled automatically by the MTP3 layer. Multiple network connections (E1, T1 or V.35). Multiple cards in a single chassis. More than one route to a destination (use of STPs in the network to provide alternate routes) Distributed architecture (may also be due to processor bandwidth) both for the application and the SS7 front end.

Redundancy
Redundancy within a single card.
Load sharing between links (which would normally be on different ports) is automatic (managed by MTP3).

Redundancy (2)
Redundancy between two cards
Handled automatically, MTP3 and above must run on the host processor

Distributed system
Why? VOIP, heavy DSP processing demand, solution: distribute channels between platforms

With SS7.
Problem! How is the SS7 information relayed from Application platform 1 to the others?

SIU
Problem! How to eliminate single points of failure?

Fault resilient SIU

SIU key features


Gives an SS7 interface to a multi-chassis application via a TCP/IP LAN. Runs MTP, ISUP, NUP, TUP, SCCP, TCAP, MAP, INAP (CS1) and IS-41 locally. Distributes the signalling data depending on CIC, point code (ISUP and TUP), transaction (TCAP). Software is provided for the communication between the application program and SIU. Two units can operate in a resilient configuration linked by SS7 and the Ethernet.

SIUs (SS7 Servers)

SIU131 (2U) 4 x E1/T1/V.35 6xSS7 links 6xLink sets

SIU231 (4U) 24 x E1/T1/V.35 32xSS7 links 8xLink sets

SIU520 (2U) 6 x E1/T1/V.35 12xSS7 links 12xLink sets

SIU520 platform
NEBS certified 2U Intel Chassis Dual 1.2GHz Intel Pentium III Dual redundant AC or DC power

How does the application talk to the SIU?


Through a driver provided by Intel IP/Ethernet is transparent Same code development/API as SS7 cards

Voicemail using SIU

Protocol Architecture (SPA)


Each protocol layer (e.g. MTP LEVEL2, MTP LEVEL 3, USER PART, etc.) and the user application runs as a individual task. Tasks run on an SS7 line card, SIU or on the same processor and memory as the application. All tasks have a well defined interface and communicate using messages. (standard structures defined in C). Communication is achieved using messages Each task has a single input queue through which it receives messages from other tasks. Each task is identified with a unique 8 bit module_id similar to (but not the same as!) a Unix process id (pid)

APIs
GlobalCall available for ISUP and TUP Direct SS7 protocol Interface for other layers message based.
