ISDN is a circuit-switched telephone network system, which also provides access to packet switched networks, designed to allow digital transmission of voice and data over ordinary telephone copper wires, resulting in potentially better voice quality than an analog phone can provide.

Lawful interception

Flood search routing

flood search routing
In a telephone network, flood search routing is non-deterministic routing in which a dialed number received at a switch is transmitted to all switches, i.e., flooded, in the area code directly connected to that switch; if the dialed number is not an affiliated subscriber at that switch, the number is then retransmitted to all directly connected switches, and then routed through the switch that has the dialed number corresponding to the particular user end instrument affiliated with it.

Telephony application server

Signaling Server
The term telephony application server refers to an entity in a telephone network that carries out functions that are not directly related to the routing of messages through the network.
