Compare TCP/IP – SS7 Protocol Stack based on OSI Layer

with 4 comments

I gave you an example of SS7 – GSM MAP log from my previous post about GSM – MAP. I will give you a picture of SS7 protocol stack and TCP/IP protocol stack so you could easily understand about SS7 if you understand TCP/IP or vice versa.



You see that GSM MAP – Mobile Application Part actually is similar with HTTP, SMTP and many other application layer on TCP/IP.

However, if on TCP/IP many application layer use user friendly protocol, not with SS7. For example, on SMTP Protocol, basically it’s very clear that Client (C) communicate with Server (S) like this:

C: EHLO localhost

S: 250 SMTP adywicaksono is ready


S: 250 OK

……. and so on

But in GSM-MAP, you just talking about signalling means talking about bit & byte like this:

tc7e0 f15 d2d s00 i001b r0000 p(189)


Yes, not user friendly for us but very effective & efficient for machine 🙂

Actually the meaning of this MAP protocol is like this:


Parameter Key           :   23 (0x17) (Short message destination address (IMSI, LMSI, MS-ISDN roaming number or srv centre address))

Well, Short message user data field itself is also very complex.Read GSM 03.40, please :))
