SIGTRAN Application Development Platform provides a versatile development environment for converging wireless, IP and Intelligent Network (IN) applications. The stack API simplifies building new network applications and services by insulating the application developer from the complexities of integrating third-party components such as protocol stacks, application layer APIs and hardware interface cards. It empowers the application developer with a comprehensive solution suite to simplify the development process and reduce development time and cost.
Designed for high performance
Distributed and Library Modes
Supports IMS and LTE domains
Compliant with the latest RFCs
Each layer of the SIGTRAN stack is specified with a set of messages. Each message contains a set of Information Elements (IE). The SIGTRAN stack implementation provides a user-friendly API that provides classes for each message and IEs.
Simple Set, Get, and Print methods are provided to enable access to the IEs.
This interface provides a type-safe programming approach. Cumbersome searching within a message to retrieve the IEs and the onerous task of encoding tags, etc. is completely abstracted from the developer. This results in clean, easy-to-use code.
For compact architectures based on a single process, the linkable library mode provides a seamless approach whereby the process can harness the features of the SIGTRAN implementation in a multi-threaded model. The Diameter Stack runs in its thread of execution, providing support for all parts of Link Up/Down, Link Activation/De-Activation, Link Status, End Node Status etc.
The SIGTRAN Stack also provides a multi-threaded dispatch and receive mechanism for communicating with the application worker threads. The platform extends a complete process infrastructure environment that can accelerate new application development. Library mode also supports Active/Hot Standby redundant operation.
Customer Use Cases
Transatel is using the SIGTRAN Signaling Stack for the interworking of MAP/S6a in talks with Telia to use the SIGTRAN stack to be part of their SPIN Solution which supports for Call-Screening, Number Portability, Emergency Call Handling and other standard features
