SIGTRAN: Signaling Transport
Signaling Transport (SIGTRAN) refers to a protocol stack for the transport of Switched Circuit Network (SCN) signaling protocols (such as SS7/C7 an Q.931) over an IP network. SIGTRAN, an evolution of the PSTN signaling, defines adaptors and a core transport capabilities that blend SS7 and packet protocols to provide users with the best both technologies have to offer. Applications of SIGTRAN include:Internet dial-up remote access, IP telephony interworking with PSTN and other services as identified.
