Common-channel signaling

In telephony, common-channel signaling (CCS), in the US also common-channel interoffice signaling (CCIS), is the transmission of signaling information (control information) on a separate channel than the data, and, more specifically, where that signaling channel controls multiple data channels.

Frame synchronization

In telecommunication, frame synchronization or framing is the process by which, while receiving a stream of framed data, incoming frame alignment signals (i.e., a distinctive bit sequences or syncwords) are identified (that is, distinguished from data bits), permitting the data bits within the frame to be extracted for decoding or retransmission.
