Paul Andrew Miller, David Michael Sprague, Dan Alan Brendes, Venkataramaiah Ravishankar: Systems and methods for communicating messages among signaling system 7 (SS7) signaling points (SPs) and internet protocol (IP) nodes using signal transfer points (STPS). Tekelec, Jenkins & Wilson P A, November 27, 2001: US06324183 (96 worldwide citation)

Seamless transport of messages is provided between SS7 network elements and Internet Protocol (IP) network elements using an STP as an intermediary. Thus, messages may be routed between a first SP and a second SP via an STP using IP. Messages may be routed between an SP and an IP node via an STP usi ...
