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)K

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. Jan

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.MikeOn Jan 27, 2009, at 2:07 PM, Ken Rice wrote:
I don’t see a non Commercial one getting certification and then getting widely used here in the states... That’s the problem you have to spend tons of time to get them certified... Its not like SIP where they will pretty much take anything and everything unfortunatelyKFrom: Brian West <brian at freeswitch.org>Reply-To: "freeswitch-dev at lists.freeswitch.org" <freeswitch-dev at lists.freeswitch.org>Date: Tue, 27 Jan 2009 12:59:18 -0600To: "freeswitch-dev at lists.freeswitch.org" <freeswitch-dev at lists.freeswitch.org>Subject: Re: [Freeswitch-dev] FreeSWITCH SS7 stackWe should have an open source one too thats MPL or BSD ... I don't agree with selling protocols like this commercially.  Guess thats just the Open Source in me wanting that stuff to be free./bOn Jan 27, 2009, at 12:27 PM, Ken Rice wrote:
There are things available for this in the commercial space.  One from CometSig.com and one from sangoma.  Nothing at this time in the opensource arena. (OpenSS7 will not be integrated with freeswitch due to licensing issues)Contact me off list if you are interested in either of the commercial versions I can assist you with these things.Ken
