call progress tones
Explanation: An audible signal returned by a network to a call originator to indicate the status of a call
Call progress tone signals provide information regarding the status or progress of a call to customers, operators, and connected equipment. In circuit-associated signaling, these audible tones are transmitted over the voice path within the frequency limit
In telephony, call progress tones are audible tones sent from the PSTN or a PBX to calling parties to indicate the status of phone calls.
