Course Overview

In this seminar we shall expose the challenges of combining the two worlds: VoIP and the traditional Signaling No. 7. We shall explore how these two technologies can collocate together; we shall discover dedicated components and protocols that were developed for connecting between these two worlds. In this seminar we shall discuss different carrier grade topologies and analyze real captures.

Who should attend?

Professional people in communication and IT, Engineers, software developers, Technical support, field engineers.
