Integration of SS7 with Asterisk is something that we are also expecting
eagerly. however, I don't know what is the status at OpenSS7, as it seems that
their web site (at least the "NEWS" part) hasn't been updated since August


Does anyone have any info on SS7 integration into Asterisk and how it is

Best regards,
