What is OpenSS7?
Description: OpenSS7 Frequently Asked Questions #1.
OpenSS7 is a telephone network and next generation network Signalling System No. 7 (SS7) and Signalling Transport (SIGTRAN) protocol stack which provides GPL'ed and LGPL'ed source. See what it is not.
OpenSS7 is an opensource implementation of the Signalling System Number 7 protocol stack as specified by ITU-T, ETSI, ANSI, and other standards bodies. It derives primarily from an implementation of the ITU-T Q.700-Series Recommendations on Signalling System No. 7. For more information on Signalling System Number 7, see ``Where can I find more information on SS7?''
OpenSS7 was a project I developed starting in about 1996 and which has hit a high level of interest currently with the advent of VoIP platforms and SoftSwitches.
OpenSS7 was developed for the Linux kernel. It currently supports the 2.4 as well as 2.6 series kernels. OpenSS7 includes some driver implementations for some popular Linux WAN cards, and some driver implementations are supported separately by the card vendor. For more information on which cards are supported, see ``What hardware is supported?''
