FRAME STRUCTURES FOR USE IN THE INTERNATIONAL INTERCONNECTION OF DIGITAL CODECS FOR VIDEOCONFERENCING OR VISUAL TELEPHONY
Published By:International Telecommunications Union -Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T)
Videoconferencing and visual telephony are new services which require greater bit rates than telephony. In the studies in CCITT on the ISDN and on international interworking, 384 kbit/s is emerging as an important channel capacity for wideband services. On this basis it is recommended that the videoconferencing and visual telephone services should be based on multiples of 384 kbit/s.
It is noted that both the 2048 kbit/s and 1544 kbit/s primary digital levels can be expressed by the formula y + (n x 384) kbit/s, where n = 5 or 4 and y = 128 or 8 kbit/s, respectively.
While this Recommendation covers only frame structures for transmission at the primary digital rates, it is not intended to suggest that transmissions using other frame structures or formats at primary rates or lower are precluded. In the future, frame structure based on other multiples and/or sub-multiples of 384 kbit/s may also be considered.
