The 7-Scales project aims to establish a simple to use and easy to extend base for development, testing and executing of SS7 scenarios. It is conceived as a kind of pool of active knowledge in the area of telecommunication processes that can be modeled by MAP, INAP and CAP. This Project supports two modes of operation – simulation mode to develop and tests scenarios, and network mode to execute scenarios against the network. Communication with the network use a light version of SCTP and M2PA.
The project is completed to the stage of recognising Application Contexts and Operations for MAPv1/2/3, CAP1/2/3/4 and Ericsson CS1+. Therefore, any scenario can be developed. ISUP is not developed although is it the easiest of all. See the roadmap to get informed about the status and plans.
The 7-Scales is written in C under Linux. It requires some C-development skills and considerable knowledge in the area of SS7 Application Parts, namelly MAP, INAP and CAP.
