PRS is a switched-trunk service based on Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) that integrates voice, video and data applications simultaneously over the same DS-1 facility. It combines 23 circuit switched voice and data channels offering bandwidth up to 1.544 Mbps with one D channel used for call setup, signaling and network control. This seamless communications system speeds and smoothes the flow of information without the expense of dedicated lines, modems and special cabling. As your needs grow, the functionality of PRS will provide digital connectivity that is feature-rich, flexible and widely available.
The DS-1 based service uses the 23 B channels to carry all user data (voice, data and video) and one D channel to carry call supervisory information such as call setup, Caller ID, routing information and channel designations. Because of the D channels control, the B channels are free to carry all information bits. This type of signaling, in which the information is sent over a band separate from the actual call, is known as out-of-band signaling. PRS combines the features of three types of digital switching: circuit switching, packet switching (transmitting data in individual packets) and common channel switching using Signaling System 7 (SS7) to vary the means of transmission as necessary.
