SS7 Over IP Monitor with Mux

The IPTube•SS7•MonM•T1 encapsulates SS7 Call Detail Messages from SS7 Signalling nodes into IP packets for delivery to an SS7 Protocol analyzer. The IPTube•SS7•MonM•T1 provides for remote monitoring of SS7 based Telecom Switches systems via LANs, WANs, MANs, and Wireless Ethernet.

The IPTube•SS7•MonM•T1's T1 interface is connected to the T1 monitor interface of the Telecom Switch and is setup to monitor the SS7 traffic. At the Central Support Site an IPTube•SS7•MonM•T1 receives the SS7 Over IP packets and sends the SS7 Messages out its T1 interface to an SS7 Protocol Analyzer.

The IPTube•SS7•MonM•T1 connects to a T1 monitor port that has the SS7 communication from each switch on adjacent DS0s. The messages from each SS7 Signalling node are sent within IP Packets to an IPTube•SS7•MonM•T1 that is connected to the T1 interface of an SS7 protocol analyzer.

Remote SS7 Switch Analysis
Telecommunication Service Providers utilize IPTube•SS7•MonM•T1s to facilitate the analysis of remote Telecom Switches over IP networks. A single centralized SS7 Protocol Analyzer is able to analyze a multisite network of Telecom switches that are connected with the IPTube•SS7•MonM•T1s.

SS7 protocol analyzer expertise is only required at the Central location. Analysis of an SS7 Telecom switch can be performed simply by enabling its IPTube•SS7•MonM•T1 to stream the SS7 messages to the IPTube•SS7•MonM•T1 connected to the SS7 protocol analyzer.

Low Cost IP Services with minimal Committed Information rates, such as DSL Internet, have sufficient bandwidth to deliver the SS7 Over IP packets. SS7 Over IP network bandwidth utilization is restricted to SS7 message encapsulation.

The Centralized SS7 protocol Analyzer is utilized for: Surveillance, Call Detail Records processing, Real-Time Signaling Network Monitor, Traffic Monitor and Analysis, Alarm management, Fraud Detection, Billing Verification, Revenue Assurance and Protocol Analysis: Call Tracing and Decoding.

Industry Standard SS7 Framer
The IPTube•SS7•MonM•T1 uses an industry standard SS7 Framer to receive and transmit SS7 messages. Minimal IP bandwidth is required to deliver SS7 since only the message data is encapsulated into IP packets.
