ITU signaling protocols for access and core network good understanding.

Course Content

The laboratory activities include SIGTRAN messages tracings depth analysis and cover all the different types of adaptation provided by the protocol suite (M2PA, M2UA, M3UA).

Course Objectives

This course provides information about SIGTRAN protocols message structure, network architecture and stack configuration. The SS#7 protocols high reliability led to their adaptation over the new IP stack, the SIGTRAN protocol suite makes possible SS#7 signaling messages exchange over the modern IPbased telecommunications networks. SCTP, M2PA and M3UA protocols will be analyzed with particular focus.
