SS7 Channel driver by Netfors (formerly Dicea)
This page describes chan_ss7, an Asterisk channel driver for SS7 on dahdi/zaptel E1 interfaces.
The license for chan_ss7 is GPL, and chan_ss7 is not certified.
Major features include:
- MTP2 (Q.703) implementation (mostly complete).
- MTP3 (Q.704) implementation (bare essentials).
- ISUP (Q.76x) implementation (large subset). details
- Supports Redfone/Openvox/Digium/Sangoma E1 (T1 and other zap-compatible cards should be easy to add).
- Supports incoming and outgoing audio/video calls (video with H324M).
- Supports full ALAW audio (ULAW should be easy to add). Jitter Buffer support.
- Facilities for raw MTP2 packet dump, suitable for Ethereal debugging.
- Supports high call volumes; tested with 120 simultaneous calls, but should handle much more than that, depending on transcoding etc.
- Supports multiple linksets with different DPCs
- Supports linksets with multiple links.
- Supports load sharing and MTP changeover.
- Support for STP signalling
- Supports multiple hosts (cluster) configuration with load sharing and failover.
- Flexible Dial command syntax for SS7 to allow use on linksets, e.g. Dial(SS7/linkset1/12345678)
- Compatible with asterisk 1.2.x, 1.4.x., 1.6.x., 1.8.x

KNOWN BUGS chan_ss7 BUGS
There is a quick setup guide with a step-by-step explanation on how to set up chan_ss7 between two asterisk boxes, in effect creating a private SS7 network for test. This should enable interested people to start playing with the module, and also serve as a start for anyone trying to connect chan_ss7 to other SS7 equipment.
Feedback, patches, and questions may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
