In telecommunication, an information-transfer transaction is a coordinated sequence of user and telecommunications system actions that cause information present at a source user to become present at a destination user.

An information-transfer transaction usually consists of three consecutive phases called the access phase, the information transfer phase, and the disengagement phase.
