Liebe KollegInnen,

aus einem Pressetext einer (chinesischen!) Firma, die Lösungen im Bereich VoIP anbietet. Bitte um Hilfe bzw. Tipps, wobei es sich um "loop trunk" handelt. Vielen herzlichen Dank im Voraus!

For end-to-end integrated VoIP solutions, the products come with rich interfaces for POTS, *loop trunk* AT0, E&M trunk and E1 trunk connections.

Schöne Grüße

oder "Verbindungsleitung".

"Amt" für Telefonvermittlungsstelle ist m.E. etwas veraltet. Ich würde daher einen allgemeineren Terminus bevorzugen.
"Loop" bezeichnet hier die Anschlussleitung auf der Teilnehmerseite, die ja beim Teilnehmer zurückgeschleift wird (siehe Link von Harry, das die "Schleifensignalisierung" beim Teilnehmer beschreibt).
"trunk" bezeichnet die Verbindungsleitung von der Vermittlungsstellenseite her.

Vielleicht hilft's ja...

To get you started...

See for the 'loop' bit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loop_Start_Trunk

On an added note: maybe you have better glossaries than I do, but I can't help wondering if the rest of the terminology is at all correct - most refs. to 'trunk AT0' seem to come from the same (chinese you say?) company. I got the impression (but no confirmation) that T0 stands for a digital telephone system, but here the A seems to stand for analog. Maybe it's some exotic (Asian) telephone system? Anyway, most german websites (cowardly) leave most of this description untranslated, as you yourself must have found.
