channel-associated signaling (CAS)
Channel-associated signaling (CAS) is signaling (for example, in a T-carrier system
line) in which control signals, such as
those for synchronizing and bounding frames, are
carried in the same channels as
voice and data signals.
This arrangement is an alternative to CCS (common channel
signaling) in which a group of voice-and-data channels share a separate channel that is used
only for control signals.
CAS also stands for column address
