M3UA load balancing is taken care. Depending on configuration, most significant bit or least significant bit of SLS is used for load balancing between AS and remaining bits are used for load balancing between ASP's
At SCCP layer the load balancing between primary and backup address is now configurable for bits 0,1,2,3 and 4 of SLS
Added management event listeners for SCTP, M3UA and SCCP layers for external management and monitoring
New MAP messages cancelLocation, provideRoamingNumber, sendRoutingInfo, insertSubscriberData implemented
Implemented GEO Primitives in MAP
M3UA number of ASP that should be active for loadbalancing can now be configured at AS creation time
Added support for UCS2 and Urdu GSM7 Bit encoding for USSD
If you are upgrading to jSS7 2.0.0.BETA3 from older version, make sure you delete the SccpStack_sccpresource.xml and SccpStack_sccprouter.xml from persist directory. These are the files where SCCP persists configurations. You will have to execute the SCCP commands again from CLI. This is because there are changes in XML tags of persist directory and instead of using fully qualified calss names, it now uses the nouns which is in line with how its done in M3UA and SCTP.

Mobicents SMSC is first and only open source SMSC Gateway completely on Java. Last week SMSC Gateway was put under stress in production environment at one of the Tier-1 operators.
We are glad to announce that Mobicents SMSC Gateway achieved 1000 SMS/Sec rate and successfully delivered 1 billion SMS's per day per SMSC instance. With Cluster of 4 SMSC instances doing load balance, it easily reaches 3.8 Billion SMS per day.
The test environment was based on "Bulk SMS" application where ESME would submit the SMS's to SMSC and SMSC in-turn would do MAP SRI for MSISDN and then ForwardSM. Since this was real life scenario, there were Components Error like user not available and other MAP error conditions which SMSC handled gracefully.
We are proud to announce first final release of Mobicents SS7 1.0.0.FINAL
NOTE : This release comes with a change in name and home for Mobicents SS7. The new name is jSS7 which stands for Java SS7. jSS7 has its own home at http://code.google.com/p/jss7/ and is moved to git repository
Mobicents jSS7 is the only OSS Java implementation of SS7. It comes with JSLEE MAP and ISUP Resource Adaptors (RA) to make life of legacy developers very easy as they have to just understand the RA and don't have to worry about SS7 stack.
Mobicents jSS7 is compatible with Dialogic boards and also has inbuilt support for SIGTRAN (M3UA).
