SS7 is a packet-switched network in which packets of information move from one node to the next without a physical connection on a network. SS7 protocols are an important mechanism in the process of transferring information from one node to another. They perform tasks associated with the message content as it moves from the lower to the upper layers of the protocol stack, including message sequence numbering and predefined message handling.
For this discussion, explain the three important measurements associated with SS7:
- What are the availability units of measurement?
- What are the reliability units of measurement?
- What is meant by the probability of a signaling malfunction?
- What is delay measurement used for?
