Sigtran vs sip explained.

In this post, we will explain Sigtran vs SIP. Sigtran also uses an IP network for message exchange and SIP also uses an IP network.  But there are major differences.  The Sigtran is ss7 messages over the IP network while SIP is a completely different protocol used in VoIP. 

Any roaming or message application that is written on top of the ss7 stack is the same either the network is ss7 or Sigtran. While a SIP application is totally different.

For media or voice, Sigtran uses  E1/T1 channels for transmission. While in SIP, the voice or media use IP-based protocols e.g RTP.

Sigtran has ss7 adaptation layers while SIP doesn’t have any adaptation layer.
