The group I forward signals represent the digits of the called party number. Group II signals indicate the category of the calling party, and group III signals, which are used in some national networks only, represent the digits of the calling party's number.

In R2 and CCITT-R2 signaling, the incoming exchange controls the signaling sequence. A group A signal requests a particular next forward signal, or indicates that register signaling has ended. Group A signals can be sent by intermediate exchanges, and by the terminating local exchange.

The group B backward signals are sent by the terminating local exchange only. They acknowledge a forward signal, and convey call-charging instructions, and called-party status.

The incoming and outgoing exchanges must know the type of the signal that is being received. To accomplish this, a R2 register signaling sequence follows certain rules:

• The first signal received by an incoming exchange is a group I signal.

• The outgoing exchange interprets received backward signals as group A signals, until it receives a group A signal that indicates that the next backward signal will be a group B signal. The receipt of a group B signal always ends the signal sequence.

4.4.4 National R2 Interregister Signaling Sequences

We now explore a few register signaling sequences in a national network. In these examples, the meanings of the forward and backward register signals, which vary somewhat from country to country, are as listed in Tables 4.4-2 and 4.4-3.

Figure 4.4-4 shows the signaling on trunk T, for a call from subscriber S! to S2, whose subscriber number is 34-5678. Exchange X has received the called number from S,. It seizes trunk T, and sends a seizure signal. The exchange also connects an outgoing register (OR) to the trunk, and orders it to send 1-3 (the first digit of the called number). When exchange Z receives the seizure signal, it connects an incoming register (IR) to the trunk. The register receives the 1-3, and acknowledges with A-l (send next digit). The acknowledgment of the first digit indicates to exchange X that an incoming register has been connected to the trunk (this is why R2 signaling does not include a proceed-to-send signal). Exchange X sends the subsequent digits, and exchange Z acknowledges the second through fifth digits with A-l. On receipt of the sixth digit (1-8), exchange Z knows that the called number is complete, and acknowledges with A-3, which requests the calling party category, and indicates that the next backward signal is a group B signal. After receiving calling category (II-2), exchange Z sends a group B signal that contains information on the called party status and on charging. The group B signal ends the interregister signaling.

End-to-end Interregister Signaling. Now consider the signaling for a call from S, to S2 that is routed via intermediate exchange Y—see Fig. 4.4-5. The subscriber number of S2 is again 34-5678. In some countries, R2 register signaling is link-by-link. This means that exchange Y receives the entire called number from exchange X, then seizes trunk T2, and sends the number to exchange Z.

However, in most national networks, R2 register signaling is end-to-end. In this mode, outgoing register (OR) in originating exchange X communicates successively with incoming registers (IR) in exchanges Y and Z. The initial register signaling is between exchanges X and Y. Having received the called
