Common Channel Signaling definition

Common Channel Signaling. (“CCS”) is a method of digitally transmitting call set-up and network control data over a digital signaling network fully separate from the public switched telephone network that carries the actual call.
Common Channel Signaling. (CCS) means an out-of-band, packet-switched, signaling network used to transport supervision signals, control signals, and data messages. It is a special network, fully separate from the transmission path of the public switched network. Unless otherwise agreed by the Parties, the CCS protocol used by the Parties shall be SS7.
Common Channel Signaling or "CCS" means a method of exchanging call set up and network control data over a digital signaling network fully separate from the Public Switched Network that carries the actual call. Signaling System 7 ("SS7") is currently the preferred CCS method.

Examples of Common Channel Signaling in a sentence

  • CLASS is based on the availability of Common Channel Signaling (CCS).

  • Common Channel Signaling (CCS) A high-speed specialized packet-switched communications network that is separate (out-of-band) from the public packet-switched and message networks.

  • Common Channel Signaling (CCS): A high-speed, specialized, packet-switched communications network that is separate (out-of-band) from the public packet-switched and message networks.

  • Service Control Point (SCP) The node in the Common Channel Signaling network to which informational requests for service handling, such as routing, are directed and processed.

  • An STP transmits, receives and processes Common Channel Signaling (“CCS”) messages.


More Definitions of Common Channel Signaling

Common Channel Signaling or "CCS" means a special network, fully separate from the transmission path of the public switched network that digitally transmits call setup and network control data.
Common Channel Signaling or "CCS" means a high-speed specialized packet-switched communications network that is separate (out-of-band) from the public packet-switched and message networks. CCS carries addressed signaling messages for individual trunk circuits and/or database-related services between Signaling Points in the CCS network using SS7 signaling protocol.
Common Channel Signaling or "CCS" means a method of transmitting call set-up and network control data over a digital signaling network separate from the public switched telephone network facilities that carry the actual voice or data traffic of the call. "SS7" means the common channel out of band signaling protocol developed by the Consultative Committee for International Telephone and Telegraph ("CCITT") and the American National Standards Institute ("ANSI"). BA and Focal currently utilize this out-of-band signaling protocol. "CCSAC" or "CCSAS" means the common channel signaling access connection or service, respectively, which connects one Party's signaling point of interconnection ("SPOI") to the other Party's STP for the exchange of SS7 messages.
Common Channel Signaling or "CCS" means a method of digitally transmitting call set-up and network control data over a special signaling network fully separate from the public voice switched network elements that carry the actual call. The CCS used by the Parties shall be Signaling System 7.
Common Channel Signaling or "CCS" means the signaling system, developed for use between switching systems with stored-program control, in which all of the signaling information for one or more groups of trunks is transmitted over a dedicated high-speed data link rather than on a per-trunk basis and, unless otherwise agreed by the Parties, the CCS used by the Parties shall be SS7.
