A user alcwtel may also be provided to Alcafel platform manager for interactive access to broadband SS7 platform In the intelligent network IN or advanced intelligent network AINSignaling Alcstel Number 7 SS7 is the signaling protocol for the telecommunications network which is transmitted over 56 or 64 Kbps data links.
In this scheme, the broadband asynchronous transfer mode transport does not use point-to-point physical connections, but virtual circuits, whether they may be switched or permanent. What is claimed is: This invention is related in general to the field of telecommunications systems. Broadband SS7 platform provides narrowband signaling links by integrating message transfer part layer 3 with an message transfer part layer 2 and 1 and ultimately a physical link supporting V.
