T1/E1 Analysis

SS7 and ISDN Console Based Decode Agent Clients

Application of SS7, ISDN Protocol Decode Agent


ConsFldCdrToCsv is a console based client application for Windows Client Server (WCS) Protocol Decode Agent Modules (PDAM). Currently the console client application monitors SS7/ISDN Links, decodes multiple SS7/ISDN protocol standards, filters user-specified protocol parameters, builds Call Data Records (CDRs), and streams over TCP/IP to remote site. The client is controlled by an *.ini file that is passed as a parameter. SS7.ini / ISDN.ini is the ini configuration files comprising of the decoding parameters required to perform SS7 / ISDN real-time analysis.



  • Remote performance monitoring - SS7/ISDN messages with call trace for Remote Protocol Analysis
  • Billing verification - Probes collect specific information to relay CDRs for Billing information
  • Network management system (NMS) and customized Network Surveillance

Main Features

  • Monitors and decodes multiple SS7/ISDN protocol standards from a remote client
    Example: Module = WcsPaIsdnT1 , ProtocolStandard="Q.93x"
  • Allows applying filters based on protocol layers and fields to limit the amount of data sent to client-
    Example: LayerFilter.0="MTP2" , FieldFilter.0=OPC
  • Allows capturing on specified timeslots, Nx64 hyper-channels, or sub-channels.
    Example: TS.0=#1:1..10 - The timeslots 1 to 10 are selected in the device number 1 to capture frames
  • Allows the following types of information to be sent to the remote client -
    • Frame header information (HDR)
    • Frame raw data (DATA)
    • Frame protocol decode field names and values (FIELDS)
    • CDR field names and values (CDRS) in *.csv format

Output File Structure

The Frames and CDR files in the CSV file formats will be created once ConsFldCdrToCsv SS7.ini command is performed successfully.

The frame header, raw data and field information is recorded into Frames.CSV file. The frame header and raw data information is recorded in hexadecimal representation (two characters per octet).

The CDR information is recorded in CDR.CSV file
