A customer voice-frequency pushbutton signaling scheme involving a new two-group signal code, termed “four-by-four”, is described. It is shown that the use of this code, with judiciously chosen frequencies, permits the detection of bona fide signals after transmission over any ordinary voice connection and facilitates discrimination against false signals resulting from speech. Apparatus for generating the tones is described, and the principles of reception are discussed. 
An experimental voice-frequency dialling system
An experimental voice-frequency dialling system is described for signalling between a telephone set with pushbutton caller and timedivision-multiplex switching system, in which the talking path and
A 4-Wire Solid-State Switching System: Numbering Plan and Signaling System
Signaling is simplified by the adoption of a universal numbering plan. Addressing between centers and from subscriber keysets uses the same inband v-f combinations. Supervision on trunks is
Low-Cost Teleoperation of Remotely Located Actuators Based on Dual Tone Multi-Frequency Data Transfer
The use of DTMF data transfer in a voice call to control a toy car is discussed and the programming has been carried out on AVR Bascom®.
A telecommunications aid for the deaf : an algorithm for extracting readable English text from Touch-Tone® keystroke sequences
An algorithm was developed to relieve the sender workload imposed by multiplekeystroke letter codes in Touch-Tone communication systems and results showed that the single-stroke method of entering messages permitted by the algorithm is twice as fast as competitive methods.

The work towards a truly automatic central data processing system has been slow, but a number of projects are now showing the way in this area, including reservation systems, centralized banking, central inventory control, air traffic control, and, above all, centralized military communications and control systems.
Integrated DTMF Receiver
A new detection algorithm allows for the proper detection of tones with exceptional insensitivity to speech and a single integrated-circuit receiver for telephone systems is described.
Extracting Dialed Telephone Numbers from Unstructured Audio
If expanded to work in real-world scenarios, CCAD could serve as a new and clearly-legal source of information for local, state and national law enforcement, as well as operating in national security cases.
Signaling systems for control of telephone switching
Telephone signaling is basically a matter of transferring information between machines, and between humans and machines. The techniques developed to accomplish this have evolved over the years in
Compressed Sensing: An approach to real time DTMF signaling system
A simple and effective sparse signal recovery algorithm that uses linear algebra theory to convert an underdetermined system to an overdetermined system and extends to a variety of other situations and higher dimensions is proposed.
Wow! linear systems and signal processing is fun!
A recent offering of a linear systems and signal processing course for third-year electrical and computer engineering students, which strived to make the course fun, with application-based hands-on laboratory projects.


Tone ringing and pushbutton calling two integrated exploratory developments
Forward-looking work on the telephone set has yielded attractive new solutions for the problem of signaling between the customer station and the central. office. This work takes advantage of new
Application of Multifrequency Pulsing in Switching
M ULTIFREQUENC¥ pulsing is a form of signaling with alternating current, which permits the rapid transfer over telephone trunks of the information required to select switch paths in local, toll, and
In-band single-frequency signaling
Single-frequency signaling liberates dial systems from the restrictions of dc signaling methods. This freedom, as might be expected, is most important in the long distance telephone plant where
Transmission of digital information over telephone circuits
The results of tests indicate that the system designed and tested operates reliably on almost all message circuits at a rate of about 650 bits per second with signals occupying the band from 700 to 1,700 cycles.
An improved circuit for the telephone set
Some of the problems involved in the work to simplify the circuit and some of the components of this set to increase dependability and life and significantly to reduce the manufacturing cost are discussed.
