  27. Dual Tone Multi-Frequency (DTMF)
    The most common signaling method for user-to-network analog communication
  28. DTMF
    is known as in-band signaling because the tones are carried through the voice path.

  41. circuit based
    what type of system is a wast of bandwidth
  42. 50%
    percentage of a call that is silent overhead
  43. Multi-Frequency (MF)
    Robbed Bit Signaling (RBS)
    what are the 2 in-band signaling methods
  44. SS7
    what network to network also use out of band signaling
  45. out of band signaling
    interconnect to the Intelligent Network (IN)
    Makes the PSTN to offer CLASS (custon local Area signaling services) services
    why is SS7 beneficial
  46. set up telephone calls between switches
    open standard
    what are the benefits of SS7
  47. Local Numbe Portability (LNP)
    Reduced post-dialing delay- faster
    Increased call completion- singal pckets that contain all the information are fast then tones.
    Additional services (ANI, call blocking, etc.)
    Services can be transparent across multiple vendors’ switching equipment
    Connection to the IN enables the PSTN to offer Custom Local Area Signaling Services (CLASS) services such as
  48. regular busy signal
    the end user is busy ( person is on the line but wont answer)
  49. all the circuits are full. ( when all the lines are full and it cant dedicate a 64bit channel)
    fast busy
  50. custom calling
    rely on the end office switch not the entire pstn to carry into from circuit switch to circuit switch
  51. CLASS features
    require ss7 connecticity to carry features to from end to end PSTN
  52. North American Numbering Plan (NANP)
    • 11 digit plan
    • 1-NPA-NXX(central office code)-XXXX
    • N= 2-9
    • x=0-9
    • ◦3 parts NPA-NXX-XXXX (traditional)
  53. statation number
    the last 4 digets (extension)
  54. overlay
    when you have to dial 1+ 10 digets because of diff area codes
  55. Local Exchange Carrier (LEC)
    keeps track of long distance providers in a static table on the CO switch.( gives us the dial tone)
  56. North AmericanNumbering Plan Association (NANPA)
    who gives the long distance code
  57. IXC – Inter-Exchange Carrier
    is routed to the proper long distance network carrier
  58. ITU-T International Numbering Plan
    • Recommendation E.164 specifies the following be used to route a call
    • Country Code (CC)- 1,2 or 3 digits. First digit defines world numbering zones
    • National DestinationCode (NDC)- Less than or equal
    • to 15 digits
    • Subscriber Number (SN)- Less than or equal
    • to 15 digits
  59. Data has overtaken voice as the primary traffic on many networks built for voice.
    The PSTN cannot create and deploy features quickly enough.
    Data/Voice/Video (D/V/V) cannot converge on the PSTN as currently built.
    The architecture built for voice is not flexible enough to carry data.
    Circuit-switched calls require a permanent 64-kbps dedicated circuit between the two telephones.
    Key *voice is made for reliabilty and over lost conversation*
    Drawbacks to the PSTN
  60. the layers are open standard
    security is good
    why use circuit switched
  61. payload
    ip simpley transports data end to end with no real interest in
  62. Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP)
    • Is utilized in addition to a User Datagram Protocol (UDP)/IP header to provide timestamping.
    • Currently the cornerstone for carrying real-time traffic across IP networks.
  63. RTP
    • runs atop UDP and IP and is commonly noted as RTP/UDP/ IP
    • one-way delay of no more than 150 ms.
  64. jitter and delay
    UDP check for
  65. delay and jitter
    rtp is sensity to
  66. H.323
    ITU-T recomendation for Voip call ( how multimedia traffic is carried over packet networks)
