This manual describes the Telephone Line Simulator-4A which tests
telephones and other telecommunications devices.
The TLS-4A Telephone Line Simulator offers a convenient means for setting
up temporary “telephone lines” to demonstrate or test equipment where
actual central office lines are not easily available. The TLS-4A provides four
simulated lines, two “talk paths” or connections, and an audio interface port,
making it a versatile device for a variety of applications including:

There are many occasions when data need to be transmitted over a voice communication network.
Many people use a computer to connect to their Internet Service Provider via the telephone lines to
transmit and receive data, check their email, surf the Web, etc.
Telephone networks were originally built for human speech, not for computer data and is unsuitable for
digital communication in its raw form.
For example, communicating between two PCs via a telephone line (connected between subscriber's
home and local office, then between local offices, and finally between local office and another
subscriber's home). The telephone line is an analog system. That means it can not be used for
digital transmission. If we try to transmit digital signals over the analog system, our bit rate or
bandwidth will be limited to a minimum. On a 4 kHz analog band limited system we can only
transmit at a maximum rate of roughly 1 kHz. Because a 1 kHz digital signal needs a bandwidth
Leonard Kleinrock of MIT published the first paper
on packet switching theory in July 1961 . Kleinrock
convinced Roberts of the theoretical feasibility of
communications using packets rather than circuits—a
major step toward computer networking. The other
key step was to make the computers talk to each other.
Exploring this idea in 1965 while working with
Thomas Merrill, Roberts connected the TX-2 computer
in Massachusetts to the Q-32 in California
through a low-speed dial-up telephone line , creating
the first-ever (though small) wide-area computer
Even a home computer user can be part of a truly global network. A connection to the Internet makes your home computer one of the millions of nodes on the vast Internet network. You can share files, collaborate, communicate, and conference with people on the other side of the globe. This lesson examines some of the most common ways of transmitting data via networks and the Internet.
1.Connect devices that are separated by a broader geographical area.
2.Use the services of carriers, such as telephone companies, network providers…
3.Use serial connections.A VPN is an encrypted connection between private networks over a public network such as the Internet. Instead of using a dedicated Layer 2 connection such as a leased line, a VPN uses virtual connections called VPN tunnels, which are routed through the Internet from the private network of the company to the remote site or employee host.
This section presents a brief historical outline of signaling. The earliest telephone exchanges were “manual” switchboards, in which all calls were set up and taken down by operators. Signaling between subscribers and operators was limited to tivtging. To make a call, the subscriber would send a ringing signal. This alerted an operator, who would connect her telephone to the calling line, and ask for the called number. The operator then would connect her telephone to the called line, and ring the line. After answer by the called party, the operator would establish the connection...
Before connecting the ARIA SOHO to the telephone network, you may be required to notify your local serving telephone company of your intention to use "customer provided equipment". You may further be required to provide any or all of the following information: PSTN line Telephone numbers to be connected to the system Model name Local regulatory agency registration number Ringer equivalence Registered jack The required regulatory agency registration number is available from your local representative of LG-Nortel....
Access and Transmission Facilities Connections to PSTN switches can be divided into two basic categories: lines and trunks. Individual telephone lines connect subscribers to the Central Office (CO) by wire pairs
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a form of communication that allows you to make phone calls over a broadband internet connection instead of typical analog telephone lines. Basic VoIP access usually allows you to call others who are also receiving calls over the internet. Interconnected VoIP services also allow you to make and receive calls to and from traditional landline numbers, usually for a service fee. Some VoIP services require a computer or a dedicated VoIP phone, while others allow you to use your landline phone to place VoIP calls through a special adapter.
ISDN stands for Integrated Systems Digital Network. It’s the new, better, washeswhiter
telephone system that is replacing POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) in
some countries, notably in Europe. FreeBSD supports ISDN with the isdn4bsd
driver. We won’t look at ISDN further in this book.
• Leased lines form the backbone of the Internet. They’re
The concept of trunking began with the telephone industry.
• Multiple calls were moved between customers and central
offices or between the offices themselves over a single
physical connection.The same principle was applied to data communications to
make better use of the communication line.
• Additional advantages and cost savings were gained by
using the same line for voice communications.The same principle of trunking is applied to network switching
• A trunk is a physical and logical connection between two
switches across which network traffic travels....
Before the advent of virtual private network (VPN) technology, remote connections were usually through expensive dedicated lines, or smaller organizations may have used on-demand connection technologies such as dial-up over Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) or Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). VPN has allowed companies to shift their connections to the Internet and save money, but still provide conﬁdentiality and integrity to their communication trafﬁc. Branch ofﬁces can be located on the other side of the city or scattered across a continent.
The generic cellular communication system, shown in Fig.l, is an
integrated network comprising a land base wire line telephone network and a
composite wired-wireless network. The land base network is the traditional
telephone system in which all telephone subscribers are connected to a
central switching network, commonly known as PSTN (Public Switching
Telephone Network). It is a digital switching system, providing: i)
