CCITT Signalling System No. 6 was the first CCS system to be implemented internationally. It was originally designed for use in the international network, but some flexibility is included to allow its use in national networks. It is an inter-exchange signalling system. CCITT No. 6 has been implemented widely, but it is now being superseded by CCITT No. 7. Thus, a brief description of CCITT No. 6 is given in this chapter. Details of CCITT No. 7 are given in subsequent chapters. CCITT No. 6 offers a wide range of features associated with being a CCS system, including operation in the quasi-associated mode, error detection and correction mechanisms and re routeing capabilities in fault conditions. However, its main drawback is its limited evolutionary potential. In a dynamic environment, CCITT No. 7 offers far greater flexibility and evolutionary capability, particularly due to its structured architecture.
