ITTC Project

An Advanced Telecommunication Network Signaling Model

Project Award Date: 0000-00-00


This research project is developing a new simulation architecture called the Advanced Telecommunications Network Signaling Model (ATNSM). In ATNSM, the Block Oriented Network Simulator (BONeS) Designer is utilized to model intelligent network services carried on common channel signaling networks as specified in the functional specifications of Signaling System No. 7 (SS7) given by the CCITT. The BONeS Designer is well suited for the ATNSM because the SS7 signaling units can be emulated by data structures. This modeling technique can aid in evaluating and testing services such as 800 number processing, as well as network performance under transient conditions such as link failure. Once the ATNSM is developed, it will be used to analyze several special cases based on a realistic network segment.


Project Sponsors

Primary Sponsor(s): TRW, Inc.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
