Public Switched Telephone Network

What is a Circuit Switched Telephone call ?

circuit switched – During the set up portion of a telephone call, a circuit is created, which is then torn down when the call is completed.

Originally, the entire telephone network was analog, but it is now mostly digital. The digital parts include the switches and backbone lines between them (called trunk lines).The connection between the customer premises equipment and the first telephone switch, called the local loop, is still analog.
