I have a formula about the SS7 Link Set Measurement but I don’t know if is correct. A person said to me that can be used for transmission and reception…
The formula is:
Link Set Load (%) = (((MSUS*6 + OCTSIF&SIO)*8)/(64000*3600*N))*100
64000 – link set tax (64 kbs)
3600 – 1 hour = 3600 seconds
N – Number of links in Link Set.
Is this formula correct?

Yes this formula is correct as it is being used by Ericsson Standard Business Object Tool.17th January 2006 at 15:58 #43816Victor R. CostaGuest
Thanks Mr. Patel.

Why do we multiply MSU’s by 6 ?
Is it the overhead??

Yes, you’re right. It’s because of the overhead.

I have a few questions about this formula:
I don’t understand why do you have to multiply by 8 the sum (MSUS*6 + OCTSIF&SIO) since both terms are already given in octets? Also, would not be more correct to divide by 65536 (64k) instead of 64000? Another aspect is that the link also caries LSSU (Link Status Signal Unit). I have no idea about how many LSSU messages are transmitted and if their number can be safely ignored in link load calculation. Any idea? Thank you.31st January 2006 at 10:04 #43820SnowstrormGuest
You multiply by 8, ‘coz SL rate is given in bits, not octets.
65536 is more correct, but is error is just 2% it isn’t a big deal.31st January 2006 at 10:06 #43821SnowstormGuest
LSSU are very rare messages. They could be ignored without any doubts31st January 2006 at 11:07 #43822liviusGuest
Thank you Snowstorm for your very fast answer! I missed that, link speed is given in kbps and of course, you have to convert octets to bits. And also it is correct to divide by 64000 (65536 is right only for KBytes).27th August 2006 at 07:15 #43823DJGuest
The overhead should be 7 Right ?
Why it is 6 ?

I am working in IN deptt and I have been given a task to calculate the SS7 link load
The formula that i used is
Total subscribers * (Avg BHCA/sub * AHT) / 3600 = IN load in Erlangs
is this the right formula?i will appreciate any suggestions or corrections

hi what is the maximum link load after which we have to add more signallings as per standards12th September 2006 at 19:50 #43826ronyGuest
Dear Nitesh patel and else plz let me know that if this formula is correct then y i am getting wrong answers:
SIF+SIO Octets X=518766
SIF+SIO Octets R=596511
SIF+SIO = SIF+SIO X + SIF+SIO R
SIF+SIO = 518766 + 596511 =1115277
MSUs=MSUs X + MSUs R
Link Load=(((MSUS*6 + OCTSIF&SIO)*8)/(64000*3600))
Link Load=(((7297*6 + 1115277)*8)/(64000*3600))
Link Load = 9272472 / 230400000
Link Load = 0.0402 Erlangs
this is load calculated by using this formula but ithink it should be near 0.40 to get 40% load on each link.Note I have calculated link load but not link set load so I have neglected ‘N’.plz help me in this regard.ITS URGENT AND IMPORTANT
RONY14th September 2006 at 04:23 #43827SmithGuest
Dear Rony! your all calculations are wrong and the values of MSUs and SIF are not accurate and in a right form to put in this formula.U r doing wrong somewhere,formula is right but ur stats and substitution of values is wrong…..work hard and read more,thanks1st December 2006 at 06:11 #43828MuhammadGuest
can any body explain what the overload factor is.
i am still unable to understand it.
