FACCH – Fast Associated Control Channel

The Fast Associated Control Channel appears in place of the traffic channel when lengthy signalling is required between a GSM mobile and the network while the mobile is in call. The channel is indicated by use of the stealing flags in the normal burst. Typical signalling where this may be employed is during cell handover.
