This timer is an internal timer for waiting for the answer from the called party during
a national toll call. The service flow is shown in the figure below.

1. SP A originates a call by sending an IAM message to SP B. The IAM


message indicates that this call is a national toll call.
2. After SP A receives an ACM message or the ringing indicator from the
called party, it starts this timer, and waits for an ANM message from SP
B.
3. If SP A has received an ANM message or the answer indicator from the
called party before this timer expires, it stops this timer.
4. The subsequent steps are the same with those in the message release
flow after the call.

Flow Description

This timer is an internal timer for waiting for the answer from the called party during
a national toll call. The service flow is shown in the figure below.

1. SP A originates a call by sending an IAM message to SP B. The IAM


message indicates that this call is a national toll call.
2. After SP A receives an ACM message or the ringing indicator from the
called party, it starts this timer, and waits for an ANM message from SP
B.
3. If SP A has received an ANM message or the answer indicator from the
called party before this timer expires, it stops this timer. If this timer
expires, SP A releases the call.
4. The subsequent steps are the same with those in the message release
flow after the call.

1. SP A originates s a call to SP B by sending an IAM or SAM message to


SP B (not shown in the above figure).
2. After sending the address, SP A starts this timer, and waits for an ACM

L3L4TpCallInd message to the GCM module. Then it starts this timer, and waits for
an L4L3TpCallAck message. If this timer expires, the local office directly releases
the call.
The service flow is shown in the figure below.
