Tele-Communication (Telecom) Terms Glossary and Dictionary
Pulsing is the part of signaling that forwards the destination code required to route a call. In telephony, the transmission of address information to a switching office is via pulses (i.e., signals) that originate from the user's equipment. An examples of pulsing methods is DTMF (dual-tone multifrequency). Rotary dialing is another example in which DC (Direct Current) pulses are generated by a rotary dial.
