telephony user part (TUP)

The TelephonyUser Part (TUP) is an ISDN gateway for SS7 signalling toadapt the various national signalling procedures for international connections.

Only the basic telephone services can be transmitted with the Telephony User Part because the number of protocol elements supported by all connected ISDN networks is substantially limited. Supported services include call setup, busy signaling, and call termination. Supplementary services or teleservices cannot be transmitted. Carrier services can be distinguished between the 64-kbit/s service and the 3.1-kHz audio service.

The extended Telephone User Part TUP+ is capable of transmitting the defined bearer services and the five basic supplementary services of Euro-ISDN.
