A new revision of Sangoma SMG is being released. This new revision is the result of extensive testing in the SMG bulk call generation lab in Toronto. This lab has proven itself capable of creating a punishing load similar to a unrelentless regional crisis. The systems under test were also misconfigured intentionally to increase the chance of circuit dual seizure occuring. In order to survive in the test, some parts of the SMG had to be redesigned and optimized. This was not surprising after it was done, but figuring out where the redesigns were needed was a difficult process. The latest release of SMG is solid foundation on which to continue building this product.
New installations are keeping us busy. The installation process in much closer to being fully automated now with the release of the smginstall tool in the latest SMG release. Some of our regional representatives are using the tool to successfully install and run SMG at customer sites.
Sadly we must report a HDD failure on the host of the ss7box Wiki. Alternatives are being considered and this tool should return to service before long. Backups were made. We are just not sure how fresh they are.
Currently we are working on expanding ISUP support to the lesser used messages. We are starting to see regional differences and operator differences. We are working with multiple linkset and multiple trunk group configurations now. We have a distributed SS7 presence experiment on-going and we are working on media gateway clustering capabilities. There's a lot to do but we are making forward progress daily and the results are tangible.
