ITU-T Q.24 1988 Edition, November 1, 1988
MULTIFREQUENCY PUSH-BUTTON SIGNAL RECEPTION
Published By:International Telecommunications Union -Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T)
Characteristics of multifrequency push-button (MFPB) telephone sets using voice frequency signals are included in Recommendation Q.23. This Recommendation Q.24 is intended primarily for application in local exchanges for the reception of MFPB signals. Other MFPB signal receiving applications, such as transit exchanges, would need to take into account the effects of transmission impairments, such as signal clipping, that could be introduced in long distance telephone networks. Since technical factors, such as transmission loss, vary among national networks, varying national standards exist. Varying standards may also exist, for example, to incorporate differences between local and transit exchange applications. This Recommendation is not intended to supersede existing national standards nor is it intended to imply that Administrations should modify those standards.
