The relationships that currently exist between the Signaling System No.7 (SS7) and Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) architectures are examined. The functions of each layer in the SS7 protocol stack, as well as the SS7 addressing mechanisms, are described to the extent necessary to show correspondences to those of OSI. Those areas where the two… (More)
