Difference Between CAS and PRI

Could someone be kind enough to brief me the difference between the two?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Ali,

in Channel Associated Signalling the supervisory signalling travels on channel 16 in a  single DS0 64 kbps channel.

However, signalling is sampled like the audio signalling.

In PRI a DS 0 channel is dedicated for framing and another DS0 for signalling (D channel) and it carries supervisory information for all B DS0 channels.

The difference is that signalling is carried within small packets in LAPD frames and this provides some advantages.

PRI is typically used with ISDN that requires a signalling plane that is implemented over the D channel to perform call setup and to provide additional services like hold, call transfer and so on.

PRI is an example of CCS = common channel signalling
