Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0060815A2] The present invention relates to a method and a device for transferring information in a communication network, in which control information for controlling the operation and payload of the network is conveyed separately in respective channels which are each defined by one or more time slots allocated in a recurrent frame and each comprising an established number of n bits. According to the invention, each of at least the time slots which define channels conveying payload traffic is associated with a respective additional bit which is used as a flag to indicate whether control information exists as regards the time slot associated with the respective additional bit. The control information in itself, when said additional bit indicates the existence thereof, is conveyed as at least some of the n bits of the time slot associated with said respective additional bit.
