Overview

The complete guide to broadband signaling.

As ATM systems grow in sophistication, so do their associated signaling technologies. This comprehensive volume covers all aspects of the signaling procedures in use for broadband networks.

Detailed coverage includes a full survey of the identifiers used to recognize users and traffic, as well as the machines that manage the traffic. Signaling is discussed at all levels, including user-to-network and network-to-network interfaces, with full descriptions of call and connection control operations. Interfaces and mapping between the various systems are described, along with parameters for messaging and a full catalog of typical error codes.

Signaling in Broadband Networks starts out with an overview of the main architectures:

  • ATM and its layers.
  • SS7 (Signaling System Number 7).
  • ISDN and B-ISDN.

Further chapters cover:

  • Addressing and Identifiers (Labels, SAPs, and PDUs).
  • SAAL, SSCOP, and SSCF.
  • Q.2931..
  • B-ISUP.
  • PNNI.

Uyless Black is a trusted telecommunications expert whose straightforward approach to complex topics has made his books international best-sellers in their field. Engineers and students alike will find Signaling in Broadband Networks an important addition to their libraries.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A companion and sequel to from the same series. For engineers and students describes in detail the broadband signaling specifications used with asynchronous transfer mode. Considers the identifiers used to recognize users and traffic, machines that manage the traffic, signaling at all levels including user-to-network and network-to-network interfaces, call and connection control operations, interfaces and mapping between the various systems, parameters for messaging, and typical error codes. The CiP data cites the title of the first volume rather than the second. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
