Abstract

See full text

A system (10) for communicating information associated with one or more subscribers includes a connecting link (50). A first switching system (14) coupled to the connecting link (50) communicates remote voice signals (60) and remote data signals (62) using the connecting link (50). A second switching system (14) coupled to the connecting link (50) includes an interface (56) to receive the remote voice signals (60) and the remote data signals (62) using the connecting link (50). The second switching system (14) also includes subscriber line ports (17) for receiving local voice signals (52) and local data signals (54) from subscribers. The interface (56) of the second switching system (14) selectively communicates the highest priority available signals using an outgoing link, voice signals (52, 54) having higher priority than data signals (60, 62). In a more particular embodiment, the remote voice signals (60) may have higher priority than the local voice signals (52).
