It’s no sprint transitioning telecom infrastructure to converged IP. . . it’s a long run! 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 and H.323 VoIP services. As a viable replacement for the recently EOL Cisco PGW 2200 SS7/C7 solution, SN10K solutions bridge voice traffic between emerging 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. Like all Patton products, SmartNode drives down total cost of ownership (TCO) with Patton’s Gold-Standard Free Support at no additional charge. Patton’s Platinum-Plus Premium 24/7 Support is also available.
SmartNode 10300 SS7 Media Gateway Scaling from 512 to 32,768 calls with the industry's lowest operating cost, the SmartNode 10300 VoIP Gateway is a multi-unit, carrier-grade TDM-over-IP SS7 media gateway that is 100% redundant for maximum reliability. The SN10300 Series SS7 media gateway enables VoIP services delivery over traditional time-division multiplexing (TDM) networks with a built-in SIGTRAN SS7 protocol stack.
SmartNode 10200 SS7 Media Gateway Supporting 512 to 2,048 calls, the carrier-grade SmartNode 10200 SS7 media gateway offers lowest operating costs for SS7 and SIGTRAN protocol signaling, connectivity, and transcoding. The SN10200 SS7 gateway provides SIGTRAN SS7 stack to bridge VoIP services between the traditional PSTN and emerging SIP-over-IP telephony networks.
SmartNode 10100 Supporting 128 to 256 calls, the carrier-grade SmartNode 10100 SS7 media gateway delivers streamlined convergence between TDM and SIP-over-IP telephony with SS7/SIGTRAN protocol signaling, connectivity, and transcoding in one device. The SmartNode 10100 SS7 Gateway delivers SIP-to-SS7 and H.323 VoIP services by converging traditional TDM/SS7 signaling with emerging SIP-over-IP telephony.
As service providers add VoIP capabilities to their sigtran SS7 networks, they can reduce the cost of interconnecting with other carriers, t cost-effectively build out their network footprints, and transport voice traffic across their IP backbones. Positioned at the telephony-network core or edge, SS7 media gateways provide a sigtran SS7 protocol stack to deliver SIP-over-IP VoIP services while maintaining the quality and the reliability of traditional TDM telephony networks that use the sigtran protocol. Service providers require T1/E1/J1 interconnections with other providers. A good SS7 media gateway must rapidly establish such interconnections with the flexibility to configure and support concurrent use of ISDN, SS7/C7, CAS (R2), SIP, and SIGTRAN signaling protocols.
The SmartNode 10200 can be used as a Carrier CPE providing SIP Trunks to large corporation with large legacy PBX, outsourcing Call Center with overseas operations, large legacy-based Call Centers, IP migration for large Call Centers or large Enterprises.
SS7 Gateways that Work
At Patton Electronics, we have developed a comprehensive range of SS7 gateways to address the specific requirements of a wide variety of SS7 to SIP-over-IP voice applications. Supporting multiple signaling protocols, the SN10K SS7 gateways provide a rich variety of business communications services—from ISDN telephony to Voice-over-IP (VoIP), SIP trunking, and Unified Communications (UC). Providing flexible N+1 redundancy options, Patton’s SN10K solutions offer network architecture with no single point of failure. The SN10K series eliminates costly Media Gateway Controller (MGC) requirements by simultaneously supporting SS7, ISDN and SIP signaling in a single device. The simplified network architecture lowers operation and maintenance costs as well as capital equipment expense.
Patton offers an extensive online library of technical information to help you get your SmartNode SS7 gateway up and running in a jiffy.
