[Freeswitch-dev] FreeSWITCH SS7 stack

That¹s the same thing we saw...  Everyone wants SS7 but no one wants to help
fund it... And to make matters worse just getting proper documentation for
ANSI SS7 is not exactly a cheap endeavor. Unfortunately telecordia and crew
still want to charge thousands of dollars for the docs when the ITU decided
ages ago to make those available for free... Even then its still a
substantial amount of effort to get something working (even if you have
active links you can use to help understand whats going on)

This is a little like the hen and the egg...
No one will support you starting to write a SS7 ++ stack, but once you get
going and the first stacks turns up, so will business.

I still see a compelling business case for a foundation supported free open
source set of libs for the base protocols, commercially supported by
multiple contributors who build higher level applications using the base
protocols.  In a situation like this, commercial sponsors can pool resources
for certification.  Obviously anyone using a modified version would not be
using certified code but the sponsors who pay for certification would still
get multiple benefits.
