T1 Drop and Insert
T1 Drop and Insert provides for direct inline connection to the SS7communication channel. Traditional transmission equipment such as TDM multiplexers (MUXs) and digital cross-connects are not required.

Service providers can cut costs with SS7oIP by
offloading data traffic from SS7 networks onto IP networks. For
example, Short Message Service (SMS) data is saturating GSM
service providers' SS7 networks.

SS7 Over IP enables wireless service providers to rapidly deploy emerging IP-based services for the mobile Internet that freely interact with the legacy
mobile infrastructure.

Traditionally, the SS7 network has comprised an out-of-band series of dedicated links that are bidirectional 56- or 64-kbps. These links have typically run over leased-line TDM networks.

 SS7 Over IP

The IPTube•SS7•SIG•DI•T1 transports SS7 messages over IP networks. SS7 signaling network elements such as local and tandem switches, Mobile Switching Centers, Signal Transfer Points and Home Location Registers that are interconnected to remote network elements by IPTube•SS7•SIG•DI•T1s are able to transmit their signaling messages over cost effective and flexible IP networks.
The IPTube•SS7•SIG•DI•T1 has two T1 interfaces with an integrated Drop and Insert Multiplexor. One T1 connects to the SS7 equipment's T1 link and the other connects to the T1 line. The T1 Drop and Insert provides for direct inline connection to the SS7communication channel.

Reduced Transport Costs
Carriers significantly reduce SS7 transport costs by replacing expensive long-haul dedicated signaling links with very competitively priced IP connectivity between network elements. Service providers cut costs with SS7 Over IP by offloading data traffic from SS7 networks onto IP networks.

New Revenue Opportunities
The demand for data-centric services such as Short Message Service and Unified Messaging has created an opportunity for carriers to capitalize on new revenue generating opportunities. Cost-effective IP transport technology and service-rich SS7 applications enables carriers to quickly integrate enhanced services and capture new revenue.

Legacy Investment Protection
Establishing an SS7 network with IPTube•SS7•SIGs does not require expensive forklift replacements or costly software upgrades for existing end nodes.

Deployment Flexibility
Widely available commercial and private IP networks provides the SS7 network designer with competitive options for interconnecting the signaling points.

Industry Standard SS7 Framer
The IPTube•SS7•SIG•DI•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.
