This document relates to the O.C.B 283 system, switching node in the ALCATEL 1000E 10 switching system. It outlines the general architecture and operation of the O.C.B.283, both the fixed subscriber centers and the access exchange to services (G.S.M, IN). O.C.B.283 is digital switching system which supports a variety of communication needs like basic telephony, I.S.D.N., interface to mobile communication, data communication etc. The system has been developed by CIT ALCATEL of France and therefore has many similarities when compared to its predecessor, the E10B.The Alcatel 10000 E10 system provides great flexibility to serve all types of subscribers, in urban or rural areas. The shelf which accommodates subscriber line cards is known as the Concentrator and can either be co-located, in which case they, are known as Concentrators, or they can be co located with digital control units in which case they are known as local concentrators or at a remote location in which case they are known as remote concentrates. The CSN is connected to the exchange via standard PCM links or via matrix links (LR) if it is local. It communicates with the E10 (OCB283) using the N0 7 signaling system. If links are accidentally disconnected from their local exchange, the CSN can switch to stand alone operation, which means that calla can be setup between the subscribers connected to it.

[...] The company using the Centrex function benefits from a number of advantages: It has a private dialing plan with the option of shorter numbers for calls within the company It has access to many supplementary services which can be granted to its establishments (called companies) To analogue and digital subscriber lines To operator telephone sets Operation and maintenance of the connection and switching equipment are the responsibility of the network operator. CONNECTION AND CONTROL: Overview of the connection General: The connection and control subsystem, essential part of the OCB -283, has a distributed architecture as the form of control station and software machine the communication system being of token ring type.

[...] Management of data links The main actions consists essentially in creating, modifying, deleting and interrogating semi-permanent links used to establish data links at a rate of 64 k-bit/second. Observation: Load observation: This observation function is used to establish load characteristics, for a precise period (1month). It is used for reporting out-of-limits conditions, which can be managed. Traffic observation: This observation function which is temporary used to obtain full information on the progress of calls in exchanged with the telephone environment. [...]
[...] Each processing subsystem incorporates the following elements around its BSM bus: A main processor unit(PUP) A common memory A main multiplex coupler(CMP) for dialogue over the interstation multiplex 2 dedicate couplers(CCSI) for connecting to four standard SCSI buses, A dedicated coupler (TELECOM) providing the link to a telecom bus, A dedicated management coupler (DUPLEX) controlling the active/ standby changeover, OPERATION AND MAINTATIONANCE OVERVIEW General: The operation and maintenance subsystem forms, along with the Connection and control subsystem, the switching node OCB-283 .The operation and maintenance subsystem provides the means of communication with the telecommunication management network located at regional or national levels.
