Alcatel-Lucent5070 SSG


The Alcatel-Lucent5070 Signaling Server Global (SSG) is a powerful platform that combines traditional Signaling Transfer Point (STP) services with advanced Signaling Gateway (SG) functionality. It serves as a critical network element for wireless and wireline networks that are transitioning from TDM to IP/IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) architectures. This product provides advanced routing, signaling and call processing applications along with increased levels of connectivity, capacity, reliability and expandability, making it a true workhorse in evolvingservice-providernetworks.

With the latest technology, proven reliability and a robust set of applications, the 5070 SSG allows service providers to expand their existing TDM signaling networks while taking advantage of next generation Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) features and capabilities. The 5070 SSG hosts advanced applications, via flexible routing, such as Local Number Portability (LNP), Mobile Number Portability (MNP), Application Location Register (ALR) routing, Transactions Capabilities Application Part (TCAP) Screening, Mobile Application Part (MAP) Screening, Equipment Identity Register, Massive Call Defense, Call Type Blocking and ANSI-ETSI/ITUInterworking.
