In many systems, a central unit collects data from several peripheral units. One example is a telephone network, where several switching units collect call data for charging. These data are transferred to a central data collector, where the data are further pro- cessed. The transfer of these data can either be triggered by the central data collector, or the data can be transfer- red spontaneously.
