5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the most comprehensive and up to date!, September 17, 2004
I am a researcher at Vienna University of Technology with the focus on signalling in IP networks. The current projects deal with PSTN/IP telephony convergence, so I needed a good understanding of SS7.

This book was easier to understand than the other popular book on SS7 (which I also own), contained better explanations, more practical details, and covered European network implementations in addition to US networks.

It seems very comprehensive as I was not forced to look up some other literature since all relevant topics are already covered.

The book has a very understandable introductions to SS7 AND full details of the protocol stack (MTP, ISUP, SCCP, TCAP) as well as its interaction with Intelligent Network services, GSM cellular networks like and IP.

There is even a chapter dedicated to SigTran, specifying the way how SS7 messages can be transported over IP networks.

It seems that the authors also have a clear understanding of IP networks which is very beneficial for the book, since it helps bridge over the two worlds.

I am glad to have a copy of this book in my library. It's probably the most comprehensive, best written and most up to date SS7 book available.
