  • Slide 3
  • Section What is Signaling ?
  • Slide 4
  • Mechanism by which users identify to whom they want to be connected Dynamic on-demand method for customers to communicate, the type of connection desired and the attributes of the connection Signaling is a Control Plane function that automates setting up a connection Predefined VCI = 5 Uses AAL5 Signaling, in conjunction with Call Processing in conjunction with Traffic Management and subscriber information, allocates the VPI/VCI to be used for the connection and communicates this back to the user
  • Slide 5
  • Switched Virtual Connections (SVC) Call Processing Why SVCs? Flexible connectivity More efficient resource utilization Automated Transparent to User Signaling channel predefined as VCI = 5 Messages (Q.2931 layer 3 protocol) exchanged from User to Switch Call Processing to request & setup connection

  • Section Signaling Layers What is Signaling
  • Slide 7
  • Assured Information Transfer AAL 1, 2 & 5 do not provide assured transfer (eg. re-transmission in the event of error) SSCOP (Service Specific Connection Oriented Protocol) uses sequence numbers and other controls to acknowledge or effect re-transmission of messages SSCOP can be placed above AAL 3/4 or 5 SSCOP is example of SSCS (Service Specific Convergence Sublayer) protocol Used with signaling for reliable connection establishment and support reliable communications about a connection
