By Enterprise Networking Planet Staff | Apr 8, 2002 | Print this Page
Wind River Systems has announced the addition of Signaling Transport (Sigtran), a telecom signaling protocol, to its WindNet suite of networking protocols. The company says WindNet Sigtran enables VoIP network equipment to access the Signaling System 7 (SS7) network across an IP network, minimizing the need for direct connections to the SS7 network.

WindNet Sigtran is built around a modular architecture the company says will allow developers to select needed components based on specific application requirements for VoIP infrastructure equipment, including Signaling Gateways, Trunking Gateways, Media Gateway Controllers, Call Agents, Softswitches, and VoIP Servers.

The company reports that WindNet Sigtran is integrated with a variety of complementary WindNet protocols such as SS7, ISDN, SIP, Megaco and MGCP; and with development tools found in Wind River's Tornado integrated development environment, the VxWorks and VxWorks AE real-time operating systems, and the recently released BSD/OS 4.3 operating system.
