TALI: Tekelec's Transport Adapter Layer Interface
TALI is the interfaces of a Signalling Gateway, which provides interworking between the Switched Circuit Network (SCN) and an IP network. Since the Gateway is the central point of signalling information, not only does it provide transportation of signalling from one network to another, but can also provide additional functions such as protocol translation, security screening, routing information, and seamless access to Intelligent Network (IN) services on both networks.
The Transport Adapter Layer Interface (TALI) protocol provides TCAP, ISUP, and MTP messaging over TCP/IP and is used to support reliable communication between the SS7 Signalling Network and applications residing within the IP network.
This version of TALI provides 3 SS7 signalling transport methods and provides functionality for MTP over TCP/IP (lmtp3), SCCP/TCAP over TCP/IP (sccp), and ISUP over TCP/IP (isot).
