ABSTRACT: This document provides the Telcordia view of generic requirements to monitor and control the volume of D-channel messages on individual
interfaces and common resources to prevent the overloading of a Switching System. These requirements are expected to reduce the
possibility of Switching System overload. The requirements provide for D-Channel messages to notify Customer Premises Equipment (CPE)
of Switching System congestion.
It is expected that sophisticated CPE will react to these messages and be able to reduce their calling demands until notified that
congestion no longer exists. If an overload does occur, the requirements are intended to provide a systematic approach to reduce the
overload and help minimize the impact on customers.
This GR also includes one or more Issue List Reports (ILRs) that details open or closed technical issues in the main document. The
ILR(s) are automatically sent free of charge to the GR document purchaser.
