Service providers are adding VoIP capabilities to their SS7 networks or sigtran and Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) and networks. Why?
To reduce the cost of interconnecting with other carriers, to cost-effectively build out their network footprints, and transport voice traffic across their IP backbones.
Patton’s SmartNode 10K series of SS7 Media Gateways enable delivery of SS7-to-SIP VoIP services.
SN10K solutions bridge voice traffic between VoIP telephony networks and the traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN), which is based on time-division multiplexing (TDM) with SS7 signaling or SCTP and sigtran protocols.
Positioned in the core or edge of the telecom carrier network, SmartNode SS7 media gateways provide a built-in sigtran/SCTP and SS7 protocol stack that enables service providers to deliver SIP-over-IP (VoIP) services while maintaining the quality and the reliability of traditional TDM telephony networks (that use the SS7 protocol or the sigtran protocol with SCTP).
Patton VoIP gateways offer high reliability, and proven interoperability with all the major-brand softswitches and IP-PBXs.
