details, information retrieval, and call completion.
The operator services system shall provide for the addition of new services and the future migration of selected services to or from
other network elements, such as end offices. When implementing the operator services system, some end office modifications may be
desirable, but none shall be mandatory. The system shall be compatible with current network arrangements.
The operator services system is an access tandem switching system (see GR-540-CORE, LSSGR Tandem Supplement) with
operator services capabilities. It shall be capable of serving only operator services traffic as a stand-alone operator services
application. It shall also be capable of serving as a combined operator system and a LATA and/or access tandem serving both operator
services and non-operator services (e.g., Direct Distance Dialing [DDD]) traffic in a combined application. Furthermore, it shall be
capable of supporting a Universal Operator System (UOS) Concept, as well as dedicated applications, such as Directory Assistance.
