Definition of Bearer Service Categories
|Publication Date:||1 November 1988|
Recommendation I.210 describes the principles for defining telecommunication services supported by an ISDN, including the concept of bearer services, bearer capabilities and teleservices. It also provides the tools for the definition and description of such services.
The purpose of this Recommendation is to define a recommended set of bearer service categories that may be supported by an ISDN together with their overall provision. These definitions form the basis for detailed descriptions of circuit mode bearer services as given in Recommendation I.231 and packet-mode bearer services as given in Recommendation I.232 and their associated bearer capabilities, which are used to define the network capabilities required.
Bearer services are fully described by prose definitions and descriptions, by attributes and by dynamic descriptions, which altogether define the service characteristics as they apply at a given reference point where the customer accesses the service. Recommendation I.140 and Recommendation I.210, Annex B describe the use of attributes for this purpose.
