Performance Technologies (formerly Microlegend) has an excellent SS7 tutorial , providing a good explanation of the layers that make up the SS7.  This tutorial also includes a breakdown of different message types within ANSI SS7.

Bell Atlantic also has a good tutorial on SS7, with a focus on the North American implementation of SS7.  (We are still looking for a good international CCS7 tutorial).
