V5 Access Multiplexers (Access Networks)

The so-called V5_Interface was specified by ETSI and ITU as a standardized, interoperable interface between the heart of a digital telephone switch and (possibly remote) access multiplexers. The exchange side is called LE (Local Exchange) and the access multiplexer is called AN (Access Network).

The access and exchange sides are interconnected over an E1 (ISDN PRI) interface, speaking the protocol stack of the V5_Interface on one or multible 64k signalling channels, and carry subscriber circuits as 64k B-channels.

Please see below pages for more information on actual vendor implementations of V5 AN:
