Abstract

New Next Generation Java applications are starting to emerge as interfaces between the new Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) network and the legacy Signaling System 7 (SS7) network. A new management application sends management messages to all active application session using Java Message Service (JMS). It uses JMS topic to notify all active application sessions of a SS7 management event. This reduces traffic to the SS7 interface as each application session is a JMS topic consumer and is therefore aware of the status of the SS7 network before deciding to send messages to the SS7 interface or to a specific remote point code.

Distributing management events to all relevent application sessions using JMS topic

New Next Generation Java applications are starting to emerge as interfaces between the new Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) network and the legacy Signaling System 7 (SS7) network. A new management application sends management messages to all active application sessions using Java Message Service (JMS). It uses JMS topic to notify all active application sessions of an SS7 management event. This reduces traffic to the SS7 interface as each application session is a JMS topic consumer and is, therefore, aware of the status of the SS7 network before deciding to send messages to the SS7 interface or to a specific remote point code.

A new Signaling System 7 (SS7) management application listens to generic network management messages such as congestion or remote point code down. When it receives such a message, it uses Java Message Service (JMS) topic to post management messages it receives from the SS7 interface. It posts a management message to a JMS provider topic. The JMS provider publishes these messages to all active application sessions which have subscribed to the management topic. When an application session is initiated, it subscribes to this management topic.

When a new call is made to the platform, the application server instantiates a new application session X to process the request. Session X sends a subscribe message to the JMS provider to subscribe to a management topic for a particular point code, subsystem or any other SS7 element of interest. The JMS provider sends any relevant and current network related management topic information to session X.

If the network is available, session X processes the call and sends a web service request to the SS7 interface and the...
