Alcatel-Lucent5073 SG

Si g n a l i n g G at e way

The Alcatel-LucentSignaling Gateway (SG) provides IP interconnectivity, circuit concentration and local routing. With itsSIGTRAN-compliantM2UA, M2PA, M3UA and SUA protocols, the 5073 SG provides afull-fledgedsolution for signaling gateway requirements, connecting SS7 networks tonext-generationnetworks (NGNs). The 5073 SG provides signaling gateway functions for mobile and fixed network operators migrating to 3G or NGN technology. It bridges connections between Signaling Transfer Points (STPs), switches, softswitches, databases and othernext-generationsignaling applications, and legacy circuit switched signaling architectures. By providing a compact,cost-effectivesolution for concentrating SS7 traffic for backhaul over an IP network, the 5073 SG reduces the recurring expense of leased T1 or E1 lines.

Features

SS7-to-SIGTRANinterworking

SIGTRAN-to-SIGTRANinterworking(M2UA-to-M2PA,M3UA-to-M2PA,SUA-to-M2PA)for backhauling over IP networks

Support for:

¬ATM over T1

¬ATM over E1

¬ATM over OC-3

¬T1 (DS-1)

¬E1

¬10/100/1000 Mb/s Ethernet

A scalable architecture supporting dozens of links in 1 to 8 rack units (RUs)

Fault tolerance through software redundancy and active/standby management and switchover

Benefits

Offers a compact, cost-effectivesignaling gateway

Provides a cost-effectiveinterface to IP networks

Allows carriers to consolidate their SS7 network

Provides a full suite of protocol conversion options, allowing legacy equipment to use SS7-over-IPtransport

Enables concentration of circuits, allowing carriers to gain efficiencies by loading the IP network with SS7 links

Can be used by service providers for local routing, allowing carriers to load circuits while completing local routing at the distant end

Allows operators to offer IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network services to legacy network customers

Provides interfaces for interworking with IP and IMS architectures
