SMSC example - Successful Mobile to Mobile over SS7
A mobile user uses SS7 to send a short message. The core accept the message and it is successfully stored. The response is send to the originator. In the mean time a delivery attempt is started to a mobile recipient. The SS7 HLR is queried and the responsive is positive, meaning the HSS (SIP-domain) will not be queried. A delivery attempt is send to the receiving mobile which acknowledges the message. Currently no status reports are implemented in the Simple-SMSC model, but you will see that there are already many (millions) permutations. Use the choices on the right to make different diagrams or even different starting points (e.g. App, UCP, CIMD2, SMPP, UE, SIP, SS7 or CORE).
