The use of visible optical carrier waves or light for communication has been common for many years. Simple systems such as signal fires, reflecting mirrors and, more recently signaling lamps have provided successful, if limited, information transfer. Moreover as early as 1880 Alexander Graham Bell reported the transmission of speech using a light beam. The photo phone proposed by Bell just for years after the invention of the telephone modulated sunlight with a diaphragm giving speech transmission over a distance of 200m. However, although some investigation of the optical communication continued in the early part of the 20th century its use was limited to mobile, low capacity communication links. This was due to both the lack of suitable light sources and the problem that light transmission in the atmosphere is restricted to line of sight and severely affected by disturbances such as rain, snow, fog dust and atmospheric turbulence. A renewed interest in optical communication was stimulated in the early 1960s with the invention of the laser. This device provided a coherent light source, together with the possibility of the modulation at high frequency. The proposals for optical communication via optical fibers fabricated from glass to avoid degradation of the optical signal by the atmosphere were made almost simultaneously in 966 by Kao and Hock ham and Wert. Such systems were viewed as a replacement for coaxial cable system; initially the optical fibers exhibited very high attenuation and were therefore not comparable with the coaxial cable they were to replace. There were also problems involved in jointing the fiber cables in a satisfactory manner to achieve low loss and to enable the process to be performed relatively easily and repeatedly in the field. In coaxial system the channel capacity is 300 to 10800 and the disadvantages of the coaxial system are digging, electrical disturbance, in winter cable contracts and breaks mutual induction. The coaxial cable loss is 0.3db per every km.

 In microwave system if we double the distance the loss will be increased by 6db.  For the shorter distance the loss is higher.  In OFC system Optical wire is small size, light weight, high strength and flexibility. Its transmission benefits include wide band width, low loss and low cost.  They are suitable for both analog and digital transmission.  It is not suffered by digging, electrical interference etc. problems.

An optical fiber communication system is similar in basic concept to any type of communication system. A block diagram of a general communication system in fig. a. The function of which is to convey the signal from the information source over the transmission medium to the destination. In electrical communication, the information source provides an electrical signal, usually derived from a message signal which is not electrical, to a transmitter comprising electrical and electronic components which converts the signal into a suitable form for propagation over the transmission medium. The transmission medium can consists of a pair of wires, a coaxial cable or a radio link through free space down which the signal is transmitted to the receiver where it is transformed into original electrical information signal before being passed to the destination.


For optical fiber communication system shown in fig b. information source provides an electrical signal to a transmitter comprising an electrical stage which drives an optical source to give modulation of the light wave carrier. The optical source which provides the electrical, optical conversion may be either a semiconductor laser or light emitting diode (LED). The transmission medium consist of an optical fiber and the receiver consist of an optical detector which drives a further electrical stage hence provide demodulation of optical carrier. Photodiodes and in some instances, photransistor and photoconductors are utilized for the detection of the optical signal and the optical electrical conversion. The optical carrier may be modulated either an analog or digital information signal. In the system shown in fig b. analog modulation involves the variation of the light emitted from the optical source in a continuous manner. With digital modulation, however, discrete changes in the light intensity are obtained (on/off pulses). Although often simpler to implement, analog modulation with an optical fiber communication system is less efficient, requiring a far higher s/n ratio at than digital modulation. Also, the linearity needed for analog modulation is not always provided by semiconductor optical sources, especially at high modulation frequencies. For this reasons, analog optical fiber communication links are generally limited to shorter distances and lower bandwidths than digital links.


the light does not cross the boundary but completely reflects back (Fig. instead of current or voltage. The light does not pass out of the walls of fiber as it travels. as the energy which carries the signal. The solution is to use a hair-thin fiber of glass as a light pipe. any light that enters the fiber stay in that fiber end travels through the fiber to the other end. The problem is to direct the light from the transmitter to the receiver. This is because of a property called total internal reflection. The typical fiber communication system. and it hits the interface between them at certain low angles. and the energy used is light energy. 6 . If a light wave is traveling through a material with a high refractive index compared to an adjacent material. with the light as a carrier that is turned on and off.GENERAL IDEA OF OFC: The idea of fiber optics is use to light.1). If a light source is put at one end. with binary amplitude modulation. At the receiving end of fiber. the communication medium is the fiber. a light detector senses the light. Thus.

3) The fibers may be converted into practical cables which can be handled in a similar manner to conventional electrical transmission cables without problems associated with the degradation of their characteristics or damage. 7 . ESSENTIAL FEATURES OF AN OPTICAL FIBER: 1) Optical fibers may be produced with good stable transmission characteristics in long lengths at a minimum cost and with maximum reproducibility.FEATURES: The fiber optics has become a preferred medium due to its some important features like:  The bandwidth of the fiber and light beam is extremely wide. operating wavelengths.  The signal in the cable is secure from unauthorized listeners. materials etc. be available in order to fulfill many different system applications. gbit =1000 Mbitts). 4) The fibers and fiber cables may be terminated and connected together without excessive [practical difficulties and in ways which limit the effect of this process on the fiber transmission characteristics to keep them within acceptable operating levels. It is relatively hard to tap into the cable without being noticed. It is possible to handle signals which turn on and off at gigabit per second rates (1 gigabit. The thinness means that it is easy to handle. 2) A range of optical fiber types with regard to size. It is important that these jointing techniques may be applied with ease in the field location where cable connection takes place. the electric fields of the noise source cannot affect the light beam in the fiber. Also. No light escapes to the outside where someone else could see it. it can be run in hazardous atmospheres where the danger of explosion from spark may exist. and many fibers can be put in the trenches or narrow conduits. refractive indices and index profiles. and water. chemicals. Even if there are sources of electrical noise directly touching the cable.  Since there is no electricity or electrical energy in the fiber. the fiber itself is immune to many types of poisonous gases.  The fiber itself is very thin and not expensive. and the entire light signal is confined within the fiber.  The light signal is absolutely immune to electrical noise from any sources.

compression. This is especially important for cables including a large number of optical fibers. Bare glass fibers are brittle and have small cross sectional areas which make them very susceptible to damage when employing normal transmission line handling procedures. Increases in optical attenuation due to cabling are quite usual and must be minimized within the cable design. In this respect the unprotected optical fiber has several disadvantages with regard to its strength and durability. torsion. 3) Cable strength. squeezing and vibration. If the fibers are arranged in a suitable geometry it may be possible to use multiple jointing techniques rather than jointing each fiber individually . The cabled fiber must have good stable transmission characteristics which are comparable with the uncabled fiber. 2) Stability of the fiber transmission characteristics. Hence the cable strength may be improved by incorporating a suitable strength member and by giving the cable a properly designed thick outer sheath. bending. Optical cables must have similar mechanical properties to electrical transmission cables in order that they may be handled in the same manner. It is therefore necessary to cover the fibers to improve their tensile strength and to protect them against external influences. 8 .OPTICAL FIBER CABLES: When optical fibers are to be installed in a working environment their mechanical properties are of prime importance. 4) Identification and jointing of the fibers within the cable. The major function of the optical cable is to protect against fiber damage and breakage both during installation and throughout the life of the fiber. These mechanical properties include tension. These are as follows:1) Fiber protection. The functions of the optical cable may be summarized into four main areas.

The above fiber to fiber joints are designed ideally to couple all the light propagating in one fiber into the adjoining fiber.e. 1) Fiber splices: these are semi permanent or permanent joints which find major use in most optical fiber telecommunication system (analogous to electrical soldered joints). manual coupling and uncoupling of fibers (analogous to electrical plugs and sockets). the continuous length of the fiber cable that may be produced by the preparation methods and the length of the fiber cable that may be practically installed as a continuous section on the link. couple a proportion of the light propagating in the main fiber into main fiber. The number of intermediate fiber connections or joints is dependent upon the link length. First of all the protective plastic that covers the glass cladding is stripped from each fiber end. producing a smooth and flat end. Before optical fibers splicing and joining are done certain preparations are made with fiber or fiber cables as case may be to achieve best results at the end surface. and there is no requirement for repeated connection and disconnection. fast. It is therefore apparent that fiber to fiber connection with low loss and minimum distortion (i. alternatively. Fiber splicing is frequently used to establish long haul optical fiber links where smaller fiber lengths need to be joined. have requirement for both jointing and termination of the transmission medium. which is then cleaved with a special tool. Splices may be divided into two 9 . FIBER SPLICES: A permanent joint formed between two individual optical fibers in the field or factory is known as a fiber splice. 2) Demountable fiber connectors or simple connectors: these are removable joints which allow easy. in common with any line communication system. modal noise) remains an important aspect of optical fiber communication system. By contrast fiber couplers are branching devices that split all the light from main fiber into two or more fibers or.JOINT OF FIBER: Optical fiber links.

It has been found that even with careful handling. by a flame or an electric are ) at the interface between two butted. Hence the fiber are usually positioned and clamped with the aid of an inspection microscope. the tensile strength of the fused fiber may be as low as 30 % of that of the uncoated fiber before fusion. Flame heating sources such as micro plasma torches (argon and hydrogen) and oxhydric micro burners (oxygen. A schematic diagram of the basic two fibers is welded together. easily controlled heat with adaptability for use under field conditions. prealigned fiber ends causing them to soften and fuse. However. known as perfusion.g. It is therefore essential that the stripped (of cabling and buffer coating) fiber ends are adequately positioned and aligned in order to achieve good continuity of the transmission medium at the junction point. This technique offers advantages of consistent. These are fusion splicing or welding and mechanical splicing. In general this end preparation may be achieved using a suitable tool which cleaves the fiber as illustrated. This technique. in which the fibers are held in alignment by some mechanical means. the most widely used heating source is an electric arc. Shows a development of the basic are fusion process which involves the rounding of the fiber ends with a low energy discharge before pressing the fibers together and fusing with a stronger arc. A requirement with fibers intended for splicing is that they have smooth and square end faces. Mechanical splicing. Fusion splicing is accomplished by applying localized heating(e.broad categories depending upon the splicing technique utilized. hydrogen and alcohol vapour) have been utilized with some success. removes the requirement for fiber end preparation which has a distinct advantage in the field environment. 10 . may be achieved by various methods including the use of tubes around the fiber ends (groove splices). A possible drawback with fusion splicing is that the heat necessary to fuse the fibers may weaken the fiber in the vicinity of the splice. FUSION SPLICES: The fusion splicing ± of single fibers involves the heating of the two prepared fiber ends to their fusing point with the application of sufficient axial pressure between the two optical fibers.

DC input 12v/aA. 3) Chemicals used in OFC joint. OTDR also allows splice and connector losses to be evaluated as well as the rotation of any faults on the link. This technique is often called the backscatter measurement method. 5) Tool Kit 6) Joint kit.EQUIPMENT REQUIRES FOR OFC JOINT: 1) Optical fiber fusion splicer specification (Spicer machine). 4) Sleeve: . y y AC input ± 100 to 240v. y It converts irregular shaped fiber end into smooth & flat end. y y y Joint enclose Buffer Adhesive tape. y y y HAXENE : To remove jelly from the fiber ACETONE : For cleaning the OFC ISO PROPENOT: For smoothness of optical glass.

It provides measurement of the attenuation on an optical link down its entire length giving information on the length dependence of the link loss.

This provides location ± dependent attenuation values which give an overall picture of the optical loss down the link. systems currently operating with modulation bandwidths of 700 MHz). Therefore. the bandwidth available to fiber systems is not fully utilized but modulation at several gigahertz over a hundred kilometers and hundreds of megahertz over three hundred kilometers without intervening electronics (repeaters) is possible. coaxial cable bandwidth up to around 500 MHz) or even millimeter wave radio systems (i. 12 .e.e.The optical carrier frequency in the range 1013 to 1016 Hz (generally in the near infrared around 1014 Hz or 105 GHz) yields a far greater potential transmission bandwidth than metallic cable systems. A light pulse is launched into the fiber in the forward direction from an injection laser using either a directional coupler or a system of external lenses with a beam splitter (usually only in the laboratory). ADVANTAGES OF OPTICAL FIBER COMMUNICATION: y Enormous Potential Bandwidth: .A block schematic of the backscatter measurement method. (I. The backscattered light is detected using an avalanche photodiode receiver which drives an integrator in order to improve the received signal to noise ratio by giving an arithmetic average over a number of measurements taken at one point within the fiber. the information ± carrying capacity of optical fiber systems has proved far superior to the best copper cable systems. At present. By comparison the losses in wideband coaxial cable systems restrict the transmission distance to only a few kilometers at bandwidths over one hundred megahertz.

y Electrical Isolation: . each at different centre wavelengths. Hence the operation of an optical fiber communication system is unaffected by transmission through an electrically noisy environment and the fiber cable requires no shielding from EMI. y Immunity To Interference And Crosstalk: . radiofrequency interference (RFI).The light from optical fibers does not radiate significantly and therefore they provide a high degree of signal security. even when many fibers are cabled together. fine frequency spacing). unlike their metallic counterparts. The fiber cable is also not susceptible to lightning strikes if used overhead rather than underground. essentially. it is fairly easy to ensure that there is no optical interference between fibers and hence. Furthermore. Hence. Hence much enhanced bandwidth utilization for an optical fiber can be achieved by transmitting several optical signals. as well as allowing for an expansion of signal transmission within mobiles such as aircraft. Unlike the situation with copper cables. a transmitted optical signal cannot be obtained from a fiber in a noninvasive 13 . or switching transients giving electromagnetic pulses (EMP). y Small Size and Weight: .Optical fibers form a dielectric waveguide and are therefore free from electromagnetic interference (EMI). unlike communication using electrical conductors.Optical fibers have very small diameters which are often no greater than the diameter of a human hair. crosstalk is negligible. satellites and even ships. particularly with dense packing of the optical wavelengths (or. or sometimes a plastic polymer. This is a tremendous boon towards the alleviation of duct congestion in cities. in parallel on the same fiber. are electrical insulators and therefore. even when such fibers are covered with protective coatings they are far smaller and much lighter than corresponding copper cables. This wavelength division multiplexed operation. y Signal Security: . offers the potential for a fiber information carrying capacity which is many orders of magnitude in excess of that obtained using copper cables or a wideband radio system. this property makes optical fiber transmission ideally suited for communication in electrically hazardous environments as the fibers create no arching or spark hazard at abrasions or short circuits. it is clear that this parameter is limited by the use of a signal optical carrier signal.Optical fibers which are fabricated from glass.Although the usable fiber bandwidth will be extended further towards the optical carrier frequency. they do not exhibit earth loop and interface problems. Moreover.

Perhaps surprisingly for a glassy substance. optical fibers may be manufactured with very high tensile strengths. thus reducing both system cost and complexity. optical fibers offer the potential for low cost line communication.Although protective coatings are essential.manner (i.The development of optical fibers over the last twenty years has resulted in the production of optical fiber cables which exhibit very low attenuation or transmission loss in comparison with the best copper conductors.2 dB km-1 (see Section 3. Although 14 . computer network) application. Both these factors also tend to reduce maintenance time and costs.These features primarily stem from the low loss property of optical fiber cables which reduces the requirement for intermediate repeaters or line amplifiers to boost the transmitted signal strength. Fibers have been fabricated with losses as low as 0. handling and installation to corresponding copper cables. Together with the already proven modulation bandwidth capability of fiber cable this property provides a totally compelling case for the adoption of optical fiber communication in the majority of long-haul telecommunication applications.The glass which generally provides the optical fiber transmission medium is made from sand ± not a scarce resource. system furthermore. transportation. whilst exhibiting at least comparable strength and durability. without drawing optical power from the fiber). y Potential Low Cost: .e.2) and this feature has become a major advantage of optical fiber communications. Taking the size and weight advantage into account. So. these optical fiber cables are generally superior in terms of storage.e. y System Reliability and Ease Of Maintenance: . y Ruggedness and Flexibility: . Therefore. the reliability of the optical components is no longer a problem with predicted lifetimes of 20 to 30 years now quite common. banking and general data transmission (i. in comparison with copper conductors. y Low Transmission Loss: . compact and extremely rugged. the fibers may also be bent to quite small radii or twisted without damage. in theory.3. Furthermore cable structures have been developed which have proved flexible. any attempt to acquire a message signal transmitted optically may be detected. This feature is obviously attractive for military. It facilitates the implementation of communication links with extremely wide repeater spacing ( long transmission distances without intermediate electronics). Hence with fewer repeaters.

They are:y y The fragility of the bare fibers.over recent years this potential has largely been realized in the costs of the optical fiber transmission medium which for bulk purchases is now becoming competitive with copper wires (i. The transmission distance for trunk systems can very enormously from under 20 km to over 300 km. the costs of high performance semiconductor lasers and detector photodiodes are still relatively high. Hence to provide a balance picture these disadvantages must be considered. it has not yet been achieved in all the other component areas associated with optical fiber communication. twisted pairs).e.).couplers. Therefore transmission systems which exhibit low attenuation and hence give a maximum distance of unrepeatered operation are the most economically viable. In this context optical fiber systems with their increased bandwidth and repeater spacing offer a distinct advantage. Some doubts in relations to the long term reliability of optical fibers in the presence of moisture. For example. y y y An independent electrical power feed is required for any electronic repeaters. DRAWBACKS OF OPTICAL FIBER COMMUNICATION: The use of fibers for optical communication does have some drawbacks in practice. Hence there is generally a requirement for the use of transmission systems which have a high capacity in order to minimize costs per circuit. as well as some of those concerned with the connection technology (demountable connectors. The small size of fibers and cables which creates some difficulties with splicing and forming connectors. New equipment and field practice are required.

These operate over distances from several centimeters to a few hundred meters at transmission rates between 50 bauds and 4. In addition a small number of 7 MHz video links operating over distances of up to 10 m are in operation. the immunity of optical transmission to electromagnetic interference (EMI) in the often noisy environment of military mobiles is a tremendous advantage. survivability (in both conventional and nuclear attack and security. Furthermore.JUNCTION NETWORK: The junction or interoffice network usually consists of routes within major conurbations over distances of typically 5 to 20 km. although economics are important. y COMMUNICATION LINKS: The other major area for the application of optical fiber communication in the military sphere includes both short and long distance communication links. Also the wideband nature of optical fiber transmission will allow the multiplexing of a number of signals on to a common bus. ships and tanks. there are usually other. allowing routing through both fuel tanks and magazines. This also applies to the immunity of optical fiber to lighting and electromagnetic pulses (EMP) especially within avionics. y MOBILES: One of the most promising areas of milita5ry application for optical fiber communication is within military mobiles such as aircraft. MILITARY APPLICATION: In these applications. There is also a 16 . Short distance optical fiber systems may be utilized to connect closely spaced items of electronics equipment in such areas as operations rooms and computer installations. the distribution of distances between switching centers (telephone exchanges ) or offices in the junction network of large urban areas varies considerably for various countries.

British Rail has successfully demonstrated a 2 Mbits-1 system suspended between the electrical power line gantries over a 6 km route in Cheshire. This requires all parts of the exchange to work as a unit to ensure the call is properly handled. y CIVIL APPLICATION: The introduction of optical fiber communication systems into the public network has stimulated investigation and application of these transmission techniques by public utility organizations which provide their own communication facilities over moderately long distances. the major electric power companies have shown a great deal of interest with regard to the incorporation of optical fibers within the metallic earth of overhead electric power lines. security and immunity to electrical interference and earth loop problems over conventional copper systems.requirement for long distance communication between military installations which could benefit from the use of optical fibers. TELEPHONE EXCHANGE: INTRODUCTION: The main function of an exchange is to process call from a calling subscriber and make the connection to the called subscriber. In order to process the calls the exchange must perform four basic switching functions. In both these advantages may be gained in terms of bandwidth. although high capacity transmission is not usually required. 17 . For example these transmission techniques may be utilized on the railways and along pipe and electrical power lines. The exchange does this by connecting an incoming line or trunk to another line or trunk. This connection can be direct or via another exchange. optical fibers may provide a relatively low cost solution. However call processing involves much more than simply connecting subscribers. Also. North America and Japan. In these applications. Experimental optical fiber communication systems have been investigated within a number of organizations in Europe. also giving enhanced protection in harsh environment. especially in relation to EMI and EMP. CALL PROCESSING ARCHITECTURE: The main function of the exchange is to process subscriber calls. For instance.

The basic call types are:y Intra exchange calls: . y Inter exchange calls: . An outgoing call is a call that goes out of the exchange via a trunk. If the call originated in the same exchange.y y Supervision: Detects and reports service requests. 18 . Notifies a subscriber of incoming calls. These calls are normally line to line calls. Thus a tandem call is both incoming and outgoing. An incoming call is a call that comes into the exchange via a trunk. Within a given exchange there are different types of inter exchange calls. acknowledgements and requests to terminate service. These categories are referred to as call types. BASIC CALL TYPES: Subscriber calls are grouped in to categories that distinguish one call from another.these are calls that involve two or more exchanges. it is called an originating outgoing call.these are calls between two subscribers served by the same exchange. y y Routing: Converts address information to the location of the corresponding call line or to the location of a trunk on the way to that line. y y Signaling: Transmits information about lines and trunks and information about other aspects of call handling to control switching equipment. y y Alerting.

To connect any two subscribers.D. In Digital switching the digital signals of several speech signals are multiplexed on common media. For e. The channels are connected to individual gates which are opened one by one in fixed sequence.g. These pulses are decoded at receiving end and combines to reproduce the original signal. At the receiving end also. This type of path is called PCM highway.M is illustrated in fig. it is necessary to interconnect the time slots of the two speech samples which may be same or different PCM highway. Therefore same path is shared by different calls for fraction of time.2 33 . The principle of T.1. Thus the medium is periodically available to each channel. Time Division multiplexer involves sharing of same transmission medium by a number of circuits or channels during a sequence of time periods. PCM samples appearing in TS3 of incoming PCM Highway 1 are transferred to TS6 0f outgoing PCM Highway 2 via a digital switch as shown in fig. This process is repeated periodically at a suitably high rate. Similar gates are opened in unison with the transmitting g end. Before transmitting these samples of individual channel signals are coded in binary form and pulses corresponding to the digits are transmitted.DIGITAL SWICHING:In Digital switching system signals are switched in digital form. These signals can be speech or data. This is called pulse code modulation. For this Time Division multiplexing and pulse code modulation (PCM) techniques are used.

Viz. a time switch is basically a time slot changer. corresponding time slots of I/C and O/G PCM highways are interconnected.2 the time slot TS5 of incoming Highway2 can be connected to a different time slot TS6 of the O/G Highway2. For e. Therefore the switching network usually employs both types of switches.The in connection of time slots i.2 the time slot 5 of incoming highway 2 is switched to time slot 5 of outgoing highway say highway 3. These modes are (1) Space switching (2) Time switching In space switching mode. TSST etc. These networks can have various combinations of the two types of switches and denoted as TS. Since the sample transfer takes place in the same time slot of the PCM frame. A sample in given time slot in an incoming highway is connected (switched) to same time slot of an outgoing highway.e. In other words. in fig. For e.g in fig. In Time switching different time slots on the incoming and outgoing highways are interconnected by re-assigning the channel sequence. In this case there is no delay in switching of the sample from one highway to another highway. TWO DIMENSIONAL SWITCHING:Using one type of switch for large network is uneconomical.g. switching of digital signal is normally achieved using a combination of two different modes of operation. This type of network is known as two dimensional networks. 34 . Hence to build a large network a number of stages are employed using small switches as building blocks. TST. Such a network requires changing both the time slot and and time switch.

Thus it is possible to connect any time slot in incoming PCM to any time slot in outgoing PCM. The function of time slot changing where as the latter performs highway jumping. Let us assume central processor assigns TS4 on Hwy0 to the calling party and TS6 on Hwy3 to the called party. The central controller establishes the paths in 3 steps. Each of the input and output time stages will have n time switches and the space stage will consist of an nxn cross point matrix.TST Network:As the name suggests . TSX which is also known as internal a TST network there are two time stages separated by a space stage. For example let us take only four I/C and outgoing PCM highways as shown below. There will be four time switches in each T-stages and space switch will consist of 4x4 matrixes. Let us consider a network having 4 input and 4 output highways. To introduce greater flexibility it uses an intermediate time slot. The three switching steps for transfer of speech sample of the calling party to the called party are as under:Step1 Input Time Stage (IT) TS4 Hwy0 to TSx Hwy0 Step2 Space Stage(S) TSx Hwy0 to TSx Hwy3 Step3 Output Time Stage (OT) TSx Hwy3 to TS6 Hwy3 35 . Let us consider connecting two subscribers through this network.

This services is so intelligent in giving instant solutions to the needs of the customers. Viz. time switching and space switching. CONCLUSION: Digital switching has become a synonym for time division multiplex digital switching system. The called number pays full cost of the call. Variously known as "Green Number Services" and "Toll Free Service". 36 . This service becomes all the more powerful when features such as Origin Dependent Routing and Time Dependent Routing are utilized. it is probably the most popular IN service.

Each exchange has two charging units operating on load-sharing basis. the subscriber meter is incremented simultaneously in both charging units and these two values (which should be identical) are read periodically by the OMC. The message involves. It has access to all the units and handles the transfer of the entire message between the OMC and the exchange. 50 . Standby charge recording unit (DFS): In normal conditions. It sends detailed billing manages and observation messages to stand by charge recording unit DSF where the OMC is down or unavailable. Monitoring unit (OC): The monitoring unit (one per exchange) is an interface between the OMC and the other units of an E-10B exchange. This unit can also reload the translator memories. Meter readings (periodically demand from OMC). Each charging unit can.  It stores traffic observation data. In the event of failure of the OMC or interruption of the link between the OMC and monitoring unit. Charging registers compute the charge for given telephone call. therefore handle upto 2000 calls simultaneously. the charge based data in the charging unit. the charge rates. detailed billing and traffic observation message are sent from the exchange to the OMC. A single standby charge recording unit is provided at each exchange. detailed billing message and traffic observation message to OMC. or combination of 256 and 512 bit charging registers.

h.  Messages specifying the number of calls in progress for each type of traffic.  A set of two signals (2g. line creation.). Base Time: The time base supplies basic time signals to various exchange units for synchronizing and coordinating operation which are necessary in a time division switching system. It operates independently but can be divided by an external signal.  Unit.  Answer messages. 28.  Fault messages.  Maintenance message.  Routing text messages. The time base generates to sets of signal A set of four signals (2W. ti) distributed to all exchange units except switching network and the switching network control unit. Message from exchange units to OMC:  Detailed billing and traffic observation messages.  Control message addressed to test modules. Sm) sent to switching network control unit. Each exchange has its own time base which is not duplicated and is therefore constructed from components offering high level of operating security.  A basic signal is sent by the time base. A single monitoring unit is provided in each exchange.Message from OMC exchange units:  Operating message (subscriber. The following table gives the characteristics each signal: 51 . circuit creation. positioning message. etc.  Constant or temporary observation messages.
