Introduction

This site is provided as a gathering place for Telecom resources that you would commonly find in any other library. There will be reference materials listed for Telecommunications industry use, as well as links to related areas and sites on the internet.  It's our hope to be able to build an internet database library of cross-referenced circuits and CLLI codes which will be available to technicians and telephony engineers as required.  Please feel free to forward your comments regarding the feasibility of this undertaking.

The "dictionary" portion has been offered to assist those who might run across an acronym or phrasing which is new to them, and provide a better understanding of the term or use of a phrase. It is a compilation of information gathered from various sources and personnel, Newton's Telecom Dictionary and various Internet sites related to the Telecom Industry

If there are any comments, concerns or contributions you are interested in making, please give us your feedback.

General Circuit Information

Circuit -- A connection between endpoints over a physical medium.  The types of circuits are continually becoming more diverse.  A telco circuit designer will typically employ TBS to design the circuit, which has been submitted in an ASR by the provisioner, usually prior to the field technicians actually connecting the circuit.  CFA/LOA is secured from the customer for type 2 or type 3 circuits. One recent telco feature, gaining in popularity, is DSL (abbr. Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) which enables broadband speed on copper pair circuits, in addition to simultaneous POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) service.  Another feature, gaining in popularity, is Local Number Portability (LNP).  Some of the many types of telco circuit types are:  DSL, ISDN, ISDN-PRI, ISDN-BRI, Frame Relay, ATM, CAP, CLEC, DSU/CSU, Loop Start, Ground Start, LD Service, SF, ESF, Out of Band.
