A large pipe forming the piston rod of a steam engine, of sufficient diameter to allow one end of the connecting rod to be attached to the crank, and the other end to pass within the pipe directly to the piston, thus making the engine more compact.
A (high-capacity) connection between switches. From a customer perspective, trunk may refer to an external (carrier) line connected to CPE/ PBX, including local exchange lines, WATS lines and dedicated private lines. Customer trunks may be outgoing only, incoming only or two-way.
A transmission channel between two points, which may be switching centres or nodes. It usually refers to large-bandwidth telephone channels between switching centres that handle many simultaneous voice and data signals. Trunks may be used to interconnect switches to form networks.
one of the cables that contain numerous shared telephone circuits used to interconnect telephone switching centers. runk access code - the prefix digit (i.e. 9) dialed to access a trunk line and dial an external phone number.
Service that provides quasi-transparent connections between two PBXs, a PBX and a local extension, or some other combination of telephony interfaces to be permanently conferenced together by the session application and signaling passed transparently through the IP network.
Service that allows quasitransparent connections between two PBXs, a PBX and a local extension, or some other combination of telephony interfaces with signalling passed transparently through the packet data network.
A communication line between two switching systems, which typically include equipment in a central office and PBXs. A tie trunk connects PBXs. Central office trunks connect a PBX to the switching system at the central office.
(1) Group of circuits that carry call traffic in and out of the switch. (2) Circuit or channel connecting two exchanges or two switching devices. (3) Circuit capable of being switched at both ends and provided with the necessary terminating and signaling equipment. [Trunk differs from a line which is a circuit, one end of which does not terminate on a switching machine.
Trunk: a logical concept indicating the ability to carry a specified channel, usually 64 kbit/s, in circuit mode between two points. The trunk is implemented by one or more physical links. In the TDM context, a communication channel serving multiple connections based on time division multiplexing such as E1 between two switching systems, for example between two PSTN switches or a PSTN switch and a Media Gateway.
A transmission channel connecting two switching machines. With regard to NMS products, a trunk is defined as the physical interface between the telephone network and the board. It can be used interchangeably with line because it could be connected to either a trunk or a line. In telephone networks, a trunk is a shared connection between two switches. It differs from a line in that it is not dedicated to one subscriber or extension. Trunks should have good machine-to-machine interfaces. Compared to lines, trunks have different signaling requirements, including possibly billing information.
An analog or digital connection from a circuit switch which carries user media content and may carry telephony signaling (MF, R2, etc.). Digital trunks may be transported and may appear at the Media Gateway as channels within a framed bit stream. Trunks are typically provisioned in groups, each member of which provides equivalent routing and service.
1) In a communications network, a single transmission channel between two switching centers or nodes, or both. 2) A circuit between switchboards or other switching equipment, as distinguished from circuits which extend between central office switching equipment and information origination/termination equipment. Trunks may be used to interconnect switches, such as major, minor, public and private switches, to form networks.
A motorcycle trunk is a storage compartment in the vicinity of the seat, other than panniers or saddlebags. A trunk mounted above and to the rear of the seat is also called a top box or a top case, the latter term favored by BMW riders. A top box may or may not have electric lighting systems built in for safety, and/or a backrest for a passenger.
A consolidation's most current release branch. The trunk is the release branch opened most recently and the one with the highest version number if the consolidation employs versioning. All projects and all applicable bug fixes integrate into the trunk before any other release branch. The specific name of the trunk as seen in the source code management system and whether that name is fixed or changes over time are implementation details, as is any distinction in representation between the trunk and other branches.
In botany, trunk refers to the main structural member of a tree that is supported by and directly attached to the roots and which in turn supports the branches. The trunk is also often called the bole. The trunk is covered by the bark, which is an important diagnostic feature in tree identification, and which often differs markedly from the bottom of the trunk to the top, depending on the species.
A box or chest usually covered with leather, metal, or cloth, or sometimes made of leather, hide, or metal, for containing clothes or other goods; especially, one used to convey the effects of a traveler.
Commonly a rectangular container like open chest with a hinged top for holding clothes or other personal belongings. Trunks are commonly used for extended periods away from home such as a long trip abroad. However, they can also be used for home decorating in entryways, as coffee tables, etc.
A trunk, also known as a travelling chest, is a large cuboid container for holding clothes and other personal belongings, typically about 1.5 metres wide, and 0.5 metres each deep and high, or about 25" to 40" wide, 14" to 28" high, and 14" to 24" deep. They were most commonly used for extended periods away from home, such as for boarding school, or long trips abroad. Most trunks are now used as either furniture such as glass-covered coffee-tables or decorative storage for everything from blankets and linens to memorabilia and military paraphernalia.
A vertical or inclined space or passage formed by bulkheads or casings, extending one or more deck heights, around openings in the decks, through which access can be obtained and cargo, stores, etc. handled, or ventilation provided without disturbing or interfering with the contents or arrangements of the adjoining spaces.
