Telecommunications Telephone Terminal Equipment Transmission Requirements for Wideband Analog Telephones with Handsets
|Publication Date:||1 December 2013|
This standard provides acoustic transmission performance requirements for handset equipped analog telephones intended for connection to terminal adapters and voice gateways that provide wideband speech using packet-based services such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). These services are often referred to as high definition or HD voice services. The specification range for this standard is 100 to 8000 Hz, but for practical reasons the actual audio bandwidth of covered devices is typically about 150 to 6800 Hz.
The terminal adapters and voice gateways used to provide HD voice services normally present 600 ohm impedances and are connected to the wideband telephone with very short lengths of cabling. If the wideband telephone is likely to be used in applications where it may also be connected to narrowband voice services, such as the public switched telephone network (PSTN), that provide 900 ohm impedances and may use significant lengths of loop (cabling), then evaluation for compliance with the latest version of the ANSI/TIA-470.110 standard for narrowband analog telephones with handsets is suggested.
