ILEC Interconnect (A Wholesale Question)

ILEC Interconnect (A Wholesale Question)

ILEC Interconnect (A Wholesale Question)

Hello Everyone,

We are looking to setup an interconnection with a local ILEC. Basically we will be asking
them for multiple DS3s muxed into a single STS-1/OC3 connection. We would then put
our audiocodes gateway (I hope I am not violating and forum rules) at the end of that connection.
After demultiplexing, we would translate the signaling to SIP and through an IP stack on top.

My questions are:

* Is that typically how such interconnects are carried out? At a general level of course...
* Where does SS7 fit in this picture if anywhere
* Can tie trunks be used to connect the separate connections together. If so, do that mean
we can share channels (i.e., DS0s) between the different areas.

What we are trying to accomplish is the following:

CO<----------------->Our Network<-----------------> Internet

I have more questions however, and can explain in more detail what we are trying to do however,
will hold them back for the sake for brevity.

Kind Regards,

Why not get an ethernet based connection and do SIP natively?

Hello Brian,

Thank you for your response. We are looking to position ourselves as a facility
based service provider (non-CLEC), and not looking to resell someone's "virtual
pri" service (i.e., DIDs and SIP trunks....)

Kind Regards,
