With Somos, a Service Control Point (SCP) is an interface that serves as a controller between the Signaling System 7 (SS7) network, the Local Exchange Companies (LECs) and the SMS/800 Toll-Free Number (TFN) Registry. As a Service Control Point Owner/Operator, you'll be able to receive and return the necessary routing information for phone numbers and Toll-Free Numbers in order for calls or other services to be completed. You may choose to build your own interface or purchase one from a reputable vendor and then certify with Somos to be able to route calls for Toll-Free Numbers.
Here's why you will want to certify
Sign a non-disclosure agreement with Somos, Inc. and gain access to SCP Interface Specifications, sample test plans and other available documents.
