Signalling System Number 7 (SS7) – MTP Levels 2 and 3 Compatibility Testing
Includes all amendments and changes through Reaffirmation Notice
This standard provides the testing requirements for internetwork connections employing Common Channel Signalling (CCS) based on Signalling System No. 7 (SS7) protocol used in North America. The internetwork connection may be either within or between North American countries. This standard provides a list of test scripts for testing the compatibility between the interconnecting networks for Message Transfer Part (MTP), level 2 and level 3, of the SS7 protocol. MTP level 1 tests are not included since they are transmission tests and are not related to the SS7 protocol. This standard references material in T1 SS7 protocol standards. (See section 2.)
The purpose of this document is to provide a recommended set of CCS 7 Interconnection Compatibility tests.
