Medium Speed Interface for Data Terminal Equipment and Data Circuit Terminating Equipment
|Publication Date:||1 October 1997|
This Standard is applicable to the interconnection of data terminal equipment (DTE) and data circuit-terminating equipment (DCE) employing serial binary data interchange with control information exchanged on separate control circuits. It defines:
Section 2 Normative References
Section 3 Signal Characteristics
Section 4 Functional Description of Interchange Circuits
In addition, the Standard includes:
Section 5 Recommendations and Explanatory Notes
This Standard applies where equipment on one side of the DTE/DCE interface is intended for connection directly to equipment on the other side without additional technical considerations. Applications where cable termination, signal waveshaping, interconnection cable distance, and mechanical configurations of the interface must be tailored to meet specific user needs are not precluded but are beyond the scope of this Standard.
This Standard applies to data communication systems where the data is bit serialized. No restrictions are placed on the sequence of bits.
This Standard applies to both synchronous and nonsynchronous serial binary data communications systems.
Classes of Service
This Standard applies to switched, nonswitched, dedicated, leased or private line service. Consideration is given to both point-to-point and multipoint operation
