The rapid growth of telecommunication in recent years has necessitated the creation of increasingly powerful and complex signaling systems and procedures. Once limited to setting up and releasing "plain old telephone service" calls, signaling functions now also support a variety of new telecommunication services. To operate effectively in this dynamic industry requires a solid grasp of the different systems and how they work. This book provides accessible, balanced coverage of subscriber signaling, interexchange signaling, signaling between mobile stations and a mobile network, and signaling between exchanges and other network entities. First, it provides a general introduction to telecommunication networks, with a hardware-oriented look at trunks, exchanges, and other basic components. It then introduces signaling concepts gradually, beginning with the older Channel-Associated Signaling (CAS) systems and progressing through today's Common-Channel Signaling (CCS) systems. Specific systems discussed include R2, CCITT No. 5, CCITT No. 6 and its North American counterpart, Common-Channel Interoffice Signaling (CCIS). Signaling System No. 7 (SS7) is treated in detail through a separate examination of its constituent elements-including its message transfer, telephone user, and ISDN user parts. Readers will also find information on U.S. and international requirements, signaling for transactions, and many other important topics.Complete with acronym glossaries and extensive references, Signaling in Telecommunication Networks serves as an excellent introductory text for students as well as a valuable reference for telecommunication engineers and technical managers. Complete single-source coverage of signaling systems, concepts, and development This book offers a thorough, accessible examination of signaling in fixed, mobile, and intelligent telecommunication networks. Providing the reader with a solid grasp of the concepts of channel-associated and common-channel signaling, it is an important basic resource for students approaching the subject for the first time as well as engineers and technical managers seeking up-to-date information on the latest technology. * Examines Bell System Multifrequency, R2, CCITT No. 5, CCITT No. 6, and CCIS signaling systems * Contains in-depth material on Signaling System No. 7-with separate chapters on its message transfer, telephone user, ISDN user, and other parts * Describes signaling on the radio interface between mobile stations and a mobile network * Explores the digital subscriber signaling system DSS1 * Explores applications of transactions in intelligent and mobile networks * Discusses both U.S. and international requirements * Includes references and lists of acronyms * Features hundreds of illustrations highlighting key systems and concepts
