ready to take over in a few seconds in the event of equipment failure. Control unit 4. THE EXCHANGE All telephone subscribers are served by automatic exchanges. which perform the functions the human operator. The called party then handles the process of ringing. stopping the flow of current. Once the dial tone is heard. sending electrical pulses. one or both parties hang up by replacing their handset on the base. one running the program that provides services and the second monitoring the operation of the first. The keys control a tone generator circuit that makes DTMF tones that the exchange receives. When conversation is over. the telephone number of called party. If the called party is in different exchange from the caller. The exchange then stops applying ringing and sets up the connection between the caller and the called party. Various exchanges present in BSNL are: E-10B OCB283 EWSD All exchange has some purposes and some basic structural units. When the called party answers the telephone by picking up the handset. the caller uses a rotary or a push button dial mounted either on the handset or on the base to enter a sequence of digits. MAKING A TELEPHONE CALL A telephone call starts when the caller lifts the handset of the base. OMC 13 . burst of ringing current is applied to the called party¶s line. The exchange determines whether the called party is in the same exchange or different ones. detecting an answer.2. The number being dialed is stored and then passed to the exchange¶s central computer. and notifying the calling and billing machinery when the call is completed. steady current starts to flow in the called party¶s line and is detected by the exchange. Each telephone contains a ringer that responds to specific electric frequency. Switching network (CX) 3. that the exchange can count to get the telephone number. the caller exchange sets up the connection over the telephone network to the called party¶s exchange. A rotary-dial telephone uses pulse dialing. including notifying billing equipment of the duration of the call if appropriate. which are: 1. subscribers connection unit 2. which in turns operates the switching to complete the call or routes it a higher level switch for further processing. The exchange then initiates the process of taking down the connection. If the called is in the same exchange. 3. Today¶s automatic exchanges uses a pair of computers.

1) Computer unit As the name specified it is the main part of the exchange that deals with the all services provided by the exchange to the customers with the help of computer. In this type of service makes it enquiry using the internet. subscribers calls the particular number and gets the directory enquiry. It mainly consists of the servers that are providing the different services. AC Plant: .to feed proper power supply to exchange 3.For smooth working of an exchange following unit are very important:1. Computer Unit: . In this system when the user enters his complain it gets directly entered to the server and user is allotted with an id number. Power Plant: . INTERNET DIRECTORY ENQUIRY is the latest service by the exchange.it deals with additional services of the exchange to the customers with the help of computers. The server present in the main computer room provides this service. by using this. it is the interface between subscribers and exchange. The customers are using the services of the exchange by using the internet also gets connected to the main server present this room via an internet room. 2. MDF: . 14 .to maintain the continuous temperature + or ± 2 degree Celsius to the digital switch (exchange). 4.to connect switch (exchange) with the external environment (subscriber) i. The main servers of this room are:IVRS is used for the change number services provided by the exchange. LOCAL DIRECTORY ENQUIRY is another services provided by the exchange.e. CERS are provided by the exchange to avoid the problems that the users are facing the repairing of telephone. It also provides the updated data to all other part of the exchange. which gets connected to the main server at the internet room in the exchange and further to the main server in the computer room.

we have an engine to generate the power supply. even a microsecond delay will cause the loss of data.these are the instant sources of the power as soon as power is gone off. thus for this. until it gets fully charged.the main use of this system is to change AC mains to DC and vice versa as required by the parts of exchange. Inverter and Converter Unit: . The main work of the discharging unit is to control the discharging of the batteries. As soon as the AC power supply is on. Even if the power supply gone off. Thus there must be adjustment source of power. Engine Room:-we know that the batteries are the instant source of supply but we cannot use it for much larger time. then what is the source? No one think on this that the telephone is always plays its role in the human life. Thus. That is the first requirement of any organization is the input. >It saves equipment from dust so to avoid malfunction of equipment. As we know there is some equipment which can withstand any type of power supply. The slowly charging of the batteries is known as the trickle charging. but there are also some instruments which cannot withstand with this type of power supply. However. >It protects equipment from excess humidity which can caused rusting of equipment. the power is the main source or any organization.2) POWER PLANT As we know that. The main parts of the power room are: Batteries: . UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply):. In this type of charging awe take of the batteries from the load and charge separately. 3) AC PLANT For the function of electrical equipment.the UPS must give supply to the computer. The main source of this exchange is AC supply. But sometimes we need the BOOSTER charging. It is the case of E-10B exchange. 15 . this room controls the supply of the engine. The basic advantages of cooling systems are following: >It provides the thermal stability so that the temperature does not reach the tolerance limit of electronic equipment.Discharging Unit: .the batteries we are using in the power room need timely charging. as soon as the power supply is gone off. They are of 885 KVA. Charging. cooling system is basic requirement. we make use of the charging unit present in the power room.

The most widely used is simple reciprocal type a cylinder and piston arrangement.The basic unit of measurement used in the industry is known as ³ton of refrigeration´ (TR) which is equivalent to the heat extracted in 24 hours for converting thousands kg of liquid to ice at zero degree. The system has been upgraded and current version R20 has fully validated in Jan 1994. 16 . The latest version is R24. The call processing program is distributed over different control organs of the system and is stored in ROM/RAM of the units. The first OCB-283 exchange of R11 version were commissioned in Brest (France) and Beijing (China) in 1991. which extract heat out of the ambience. first OCB-283 exchange came to India in 1993. It increases the pressure and temperature of the refrigerant gas coming from the evaporator coils by compressing it. which supports a variety of communication needs like basic telephony. ISDN. All new technology switching system. The refrigerant then passes through the evaporator coils. For capacity more than 120 TR. The capillary tube or the expansion valve pressurizes liquid refrigerant and meters it flows to the evaporator. The compressor is the heart of the AC system and the costliest. data communication.  OCB-283(Organde Control Version B) OCB-283 is digital switching system. centrifugal compressors are used. Data required to handle the calls are also managed in RAM of different control units. interface to mobile. ALCATEL of France has developed this system. The condenser liquefies the refrigerant gas by a heat exchange process. are based on (SPC) stored program control concept. Compressor comes in various types.

Layers are: Application layer Presentation layer Session layer Transport layer Network layer Data link layer Physical layer 21 . OSI NETWORKING MODEL The Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model defines all the methods and protocols needed to connect one computer to any other over a network.Addressing and routing Fragmentation and error correction Data error checking Connectivity control Multiplexing and de-multiplexing Data flow control End users interface etc. It was developed by the International Standards Organization (ISO) in 1983 and is documented as standard 7498. The OSI model is sometimes called ³the seven layer model´. The data handling A single module cannot handle the entire process. One that adopted as a standard is an open system interconnection (OSI) model. The OSI model separates the methods and protocols needed for a network connection in to seven different layers. Each higher layer relies on services provided by a lower level layer.

it defines different packet protocols.PHYSICAL LAYER: The physical layer defines the properties of the physical medium used to make a network connection. The routing information in each packet tells the network where to send the packets to reach its destination and tells the receiving computer from where the packet originated. The MAC sub layer handles frame assembly and disassembly. Network Layer: The network layer.7 Broadband. For example. on matters of flow and control. The data link layer typically includes error detection and correction to ensure a reliable data stream. error detection and correction.Other MAC protocols include 802. It includes a network cable that can transmit a stream of bits between nodes on the physical network. the voltages carried on the cable.5 Token ring . Transport layer protocols include Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Sequenced Packet Exchange (SPX). It establishes a reliable protocol through the physical layer. defines the connection from a user to a network server. but the standard allows for both serial and parallel transmission). layer-5. is where a lot of action goes on for most networks. the bits can be transmitted either in series or in parallel (most network use a serial stream of bits. The LLC sub layer performs tasks such as call set up and termination and data transfer. and 802. The two most common MAC protocols are 802. or from a peer on a network to another peer. and so on.12 100 Base VBG. Examples of frame types include x. Transport Layer: The Transport Layer. and authentication to the network. These packet protocols include source and destination routing information.Each is used in concert with IP and IPX respectively.11 Wireless. defines standard that assign meaning to the bits carried by the physical layer. 802. The network layer defines how data packets get from one point to another on network.25 and 802. so the network layer (layer 3) can transmit its data. transfer of user information. 22 . DATA LINK LAYER: The data link layer. and it can consist of either half duplex (one direction at a time) or full duplex (both directions simultaneously) transmissions. These virtual connections are referred to as sessions. It identifies each computer or node on a network uniquely. layer 2. and addressing.processing. The specification for the physical layer also defines the cable used. the distance that can be run. the timing of the electrical signals. transaction. It ensures that the packets are decoded in the proper sequence and that all packets are received. The Network layer is also known as packet layer. layer-4. manages the flow of information from one network node to another. They include negotiation between the client and the host. Layer-3.x (802.x includes both Ethernet and Token Ring networks). a NIC network interface network) is part of the physical layer. Session layer: The session layer.3 Ethernet and 802. The physical connection can be either point to point or multipoint. The data link layer is usually subdivided in to two sub layers. such as Internet Protocol (IP) and Internet Protocol Exchange (IPX). or peer and peer. Moreover. called the Logical link control (LLC) and Media Access Control (MAC) sub layers. The data elements carried by the data link layer are called frames.

COMMON TERMINOLOGY USED IN INTERNET WWW: World Wide Web (WWW) is a wide area hypermedia information retrieval aiming to give universal access to a large universe of documents. data flows from an application program or the operating system. As mentioned earlier. HTML: Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) is a system of marking or tagging the various parts of web documents to tell the browser software how to display the document text. ISDN: Integrated Service Digital Network (ISDN) is a digital phone connection technology that provides both voice and data services over the same connection. HTTP: Hyper text transmission Protocol (HTTP) is the communication protocol used to transfer documents from the server to client over the WWW (http:// www). controls how the operating system and its application interact with network. but it includes headers. layer 7. takes the data supplied by the lower level layer and transform so it can be presented to the system. and so on. trailers pre-ambles. at the presentation layer. and then goes through the protocols and devices that make up the seven layers of the OSI model one by one until the data arrives at the physical layer and is transmitted over the network connection. for example. Application Layer: The Application layer. The computer at the receiving end reverses this process. ISP: Internet Service Provider (ISP) is an agency that provides Internet access and other net related services. and post-ambles. the data is ³wrapped´ with new control information related to the work done at the particular layer. a presentation header is wrapped around the data and it is passed to the session layer.Presentation Layer: The presentation layer. link graphics and link media. At each stage of the OSI model. where a session header is wrapped around all the data. This control information is different for each layer. it starts at the application layer and includes an application header and application data. 23 . when the data goes into the networking software and components making up the OSI model. At the receiving computer this process is reversed. until it reaches the physical layer. Next. Therefore. layer-6. The Presentation layer can include data compression and decompression as well as data encryption and decryption.

The resilience of the Internet results from its principal architectural features. continents and across the oceans of the world.  Architectural Principles The Internet. These data routes are hosted by commercial. government. and consequently its backbone networks. MTNL. Tata Communications is a Tier-1 IP network.National Internet Backbone (NIB) The Internet backbone refers to the principal data routes between large. academic and other highcapacity network centers. reliability. nor do they implement any global network policies.  NIB in India India's backbone is very extensive due to a very large population. most notably the idea of placing as few network state and control functions as possible in the network elements. 24 . This country alone has nearly 250 million internet users as of 2009. BSNL.000. and Reliance Communications.000 m2) of data center and collocation space worldwide.000 square feet (93. In addition. and authentication. The backbone structure keeps on getting stronger because of the huge number of new emerging mobile operators which leads to decrease in prices due to competition in the market. with connectivity to more than 200 countries across 400 Pops and nearly 1. strategically interconnected networks and core routers in the Internet. the high degree of redundancy of today's network links and sophisticated real-time routing protocols provide alternate paths of communications for load balancing and congestion avoidance. Four of India's top Internet Service Providers are Tata Communications. but instead relying on the endpoints of communication to handle most of the processing to ensure data integrity. It is India's largest provider in data center services and also operates India's largest data center in Pune. do not rely on central control or coordinating facilities.

There are various benefits of Wimax technology such as it provides simple based prospective cost saving and service efficiency but to be capable to allow VoIP calling. 8. mobile and internet access. mobile devices. forecasters predict that there will be more than 100 million cellular subscribers worldwide. The local loop is access part of telecommunication network i. 1. it represents a continuously increasing percentage of all new telephone subscriptions around the world. Application of wireless loop technology has just been started in the worldwide. It is forecasted that cellular system using a digital technology will become the universal method of telecommunications.e. By the year 2005. 31 . Currently there are more than 45 million subscribers in worldwide and nearly 50% of those subscribers are located in USA. However.Wimax Applications Wimax network provides the ability for service provider to deploy new era broadband service. video making and high speed data transfer. Wimax applications are most effective than today. WIRELESS IN LOCAL LOOP (WLL) MOBILE WLL is a communication system that connects customers to the Public Switch Telephone Network (PSTN) using radio frequency signals as substitutes of conventional wires for all part of connection between the subscribers and the telephone exchange. WLL network application involves uses of radio to replace of the wire link between PSTN switch and subscriber. The radio technology is able to provide same quality of services as that provided by the wires line. Wimax technology applications are a mean of service providers to present data. a number of national and international air interface standards for digital cellular mobile telephone system are available. while adding up a mobility feature to those services. It works on CDMA technique. video. There is no standard for this so far. the part between PSTN switch and subscribers. CELLULAR MOBILE SERVICES Cellular is one of the fastest growing and most demanding telecommunication applications. voice.

Cost of installation and Maintenance of WLL is lower than cable network 2. add new users as well as capable to block service given to user. areas.These types of BSC are totally automatic it doesn¶t depend on local exchange for its functions. ADVANTAGES OF WLL: 1.Selective installation for those who require connection at certain time. It can troubleshoot the problem.Installation time is less. 3. it consists of different processors.TECHNICAL ASPECTS: WLL is based on CDMA technique and is entirely different from GSM.This type of BSC cannot switch by itself so it is dependent on local exchange / PSTN for switching and keeping records of billing etc. 4. It is basically a computer system. BSNL uses this type of BSC for rural II. The system for WLL services can be divided into following parts: BSC (Base Switching Centre):.It provides links between BTS & BSM. BSNL uses this type of BSC for urban areas. CCS-7 / R2:. In BSNL we have two types of BSC:- I. it works as an amplifier (router) to overcome the loss in signal in transmission. which manages the whole process of WLL service.As it is clear from its name it transmits as well as receive signal. V-5. BTS (Base Transceiver System):. it is complete in itself. BSM (Base Station Management):. in BSNL it is of SUN Polaris of LG Company.Cellular systems are too expensive with lesser signal quality than fixed broad band wireless that use directional antennas 32 .Quality of wireless technology has improved the speech quality 5.2:.It controls and manages the WLL services. In BSNL BSM are two UNIX based computer system.

The circuits are demands assigned i. but the original CDMA is known as CdmaOne.2. competes with GSM technology for dominance in the cellular world. It has been agreed upon and is completed by ETSI. GLOBAL SYSTEM FOR MOBILE COMMUNICATION (GSM) What is GSM? GSM is a standard for a Global System for Mobile communications. There are now different variations. as opposed to narrow-band channel techniques used in conventional analog systems. Global System for Mobile communications. 3. CDMA cell phones are also more efficient as they use a channels "band-with" efficiently. CDMA: .e. like sharing of trunked radio facility. The Goals of GSM: a) Improved spectrum efficiency b) International roaming 33 .Where large number of transmission are combined on the same channel at the same time and separated by the codes. assigned on demand first-cum-first-served basis. CDMA uses wide-band spread spectrum techniques for signal transmission. Multiple access radio has similarity to the LAN in which the common channel is available to all users. CODE DIVISION MULTIPLE ACCESS (CDMA): CONCEPT OF MULTIPLE ACCESSES Multiple access system allows a large number of users to share a common pool of radio telephone circuits. a cellular technology originally known as IS-95. CDMA channels the packets of voice and data over wireless radio frequencies so a cellular user can hear better. WHAT IS CDMA? CDMA.

This is useful to prevent theft of service. Personal information such as contact numbers of friends and family can also be stored on the SIM by the subscriber. called the Ki. which contains details of all the mobiles currently in that area. Each geographic area has a database called the Visitor Location register (VLR). which is activated by the operator once the billing relationship. If a mast can be successfully contacted. the phone is said to be attached to the network.  After subscribers sign up.e. it will search for the nearest mobile phone mast (also called a Base Transceiver station (BTS)) with the strongest signal in the operator's Frequency band. a new area. but also called visiting when describing the underlying technical process. then there is said to be coverage in the area. Every SIM card contains a secret key. Whenever a phone attaches. The phone then identifies itself to the network through the control channel. This is generally called roaming from a customer perspective. is established. or where bills are issued and settled after the service has been consumed (postpaid). The key feature of a mobile phone is the ability to receive and make calls in any area where coverage is available. and also to prevent "over the air" 39 . The current cellular location of the phone (i. or visits. Once the SIM card is loaded into the phone and the phone is powered on. This is usually either where services are paid for in advance of them being consumed (prepaid). the Visitor Location Register must contact the Home Location Register to obtain the details for that phone. Once this is successfully completed. a user needs three things:  A billing relationship with a mobile phone operator. information about their identity (telephone number) and what services they are allowed to access are stored in a "SIM record" in the Home Location Register (HLR). A SIM (³Subscriber Identity Module´) card. After activation the card is then programmed with the subscriber's MSISDN (³Mobile Subscriber Integrated Services Digital Network Number´) (the telephone number). Most phone companies sell phones from third-party manufacturers. which is used to provide authentication and encryption services.  A mobile phone that is GSM compliant and operates at the same frequency as the operator. which BTS it is at) is entered into the VLR record and will be used during a process called paging when the GSM network wishes to locate the mobile phone.Accessing a GSM network In order to gain access to GSM services.

If so. The network does this by utilizing the Authentication Centre and is accomplished without transmitting the key directly. 10 -Answer back (ring back) tone is routed from called user to MS via GMSC. Voice calls: Outgoing calls 1-MS sends dialed number to BSS 2-BSS sends dialed number to MSC 3. 5 -MSC routes the call to GMSC 6 -GMSC routes the call to local exchange of called user 7. 8. Every GSM phone contains a unique identifier (different from the phone number). MSC asks BSS to allocate resources for call. MSC. 9.snooping of a user's activity.MSC checks VLR if MS is allowed the requested service. When a phone contacts the network. its IMEI may be checked against the Equipment Identity register to locate stolen phones and facilitate monitoring. 4 . called the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI). This can be found by dialing *#06#. BSS 40 .

Finally. news. 42 . The mobile phone may sometimes override the default setting.  4. or if it is to be routed directly to the mobile.Routing the call When the HLR receives this query message. With a 3G phone and access to the 3G network you can make video calls. access the high speed internet. channel structure. If that is the case. watch live TV. Many operators may set this value automatically to the phone's voice mail number. it determines whether the call should be routed to another number (called a divert). and synchronization. then the CFU number is returned to the Gateway MSC for immediate routing to that destination. receive emails and download music tracks. like person to person video. so that callers may leave a message.  If the owner of the phone has previously requested that all incoming calls be diverted to another number. It enhances the services such as multimedia. THIRD GENERATION 3G TECHNOLOGY Third generation (3G) networks were conceived from the Universal Mobile Telecommunications Service (UMTS) concept for high speed networks for enabling a variety of data intensive applications. then it will request a temporary number (called an MSRN) from that VLR. if the Home Location Register knows that the phone is roaming in a particular Visitor Location Register area. internet access with the ability to view video footage on your mobile handset. live streaming. and the call is forwarded there. power control. current affairs and sport content and video messaging Data Speed: The data speed of 3G is determined based on a combination of factors including the chip rate. known as the Call Forward Unconditional (CFU) Number. and then used to route the call to the MSC where the called phone is roaming.  If the mobile phone is not currently associated with a Visited Location Register (because the phone has been turned off) then the Home Location Register returns a number known as the Call Forward Not Reachable (CFNRc) number to the Gateway MSC. as well as the usual voice call and messaging services found on a mobile phone. downloadable video of entertainment. This number is relayed back to the Gateway MSC. high speed mobile broadband. 3G is the next generation of mobile communications systems. then this number is stored in the Home Location Register.

email and video telephony at the same time. The services utilizing 3G provide the ability to transmit both voice data such as calls and non-voice data such as instant messaging.3G is the short form for third-generation technology. It is one of the popular mobile phone standards. Japan was the first country to introduce 3G on a wide scale commercially. almost 40 per cent of the subscribers in Japan used 3G services. In 2005. On the technical front. 3G services are wide area cellular telephone networks 43 .

South Korea.9. France is leading in IPTV . Popular in France. Germany. IPTV services may be classified into three main groups:   Live Television: with or without interactivity related to the current TV show Time-Shifted Programming: catch-up TV (replays a TV show that was broadcast hours or days ago). start-over TV (replays the current TV show from its beginning) Video on Demand (VOD): browse a catalog of videos. not related to TV programming  44 .
