Address signaling directs and routes a telephone call to the called subscriber. It originates as dialed digits or activated push-buttons from a calling subscriber. The local switch accepts these digits and, by using the information contained in the digits, directs the call to the called subscriber. If more than one switch is involved in the call setup, signaling is required between switches (both address and supervisory). Address signaling between switches is called interregister signaling.
