French term or phrase:remontees
general context = telecommunications
Does this mean feedback? transfer of data upstream?
Explanation: transfer of data upstream is the most common meaning that I've encountered in telecommunications. But that doesn't mean that it's the only meaning. You'd have to look at the immediate context, rather than the general one, to pinpoint the meaning of the term.
Here are some on-line references you can check for telcom-type terms (although none of them have "remontée"; most are just in English:
