ETSI - PRETS 300 678
Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN); Videoconference Teleservice; Service Description
|Publication Date:||1 January 1996|
This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) defines the stage one of the videoconference teleservice for the pan-European Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) as provided by European public telecommunications operators. Stage one is an overall service description from the user's point of view (see CCITT Recommendation I.130 in annex D), but does not deal with the details of the human interface itself.
The videoconference teleservice applies to point-to-point communications established between either two terminals or one terminal and a Multipoint Control Unit (MCU).
The "conference service" provided by a MCU is outside the scope of this ETS. Related information may be found in informative annexes A and B of this ETS, and also in ITU-T Recommendation F.730 (see annex D).
This ETS defines the interworking requirements of private ISDNs with the public ISDN.
In addition, this ETS specifies the base requirements where the service is provided to the user via a private ISDN.
This ETS does not specify the additional requirements where the service is provided to the user via a telecommunications network that is not an ISDN but does include interworking requirements of other networks with the public ISDN.
Charging principles are outside the scope of this ETS.
The values of the general attributes are outside the scope of this ETS.
The videoconference teleservice is a real-time teleservice in which high quality audio, video, control signals and data are interchanged using two or more circuit-mode 64 kbit/s connections.
This ETS is applicable to the stage two and stage three standards for the ISDN videoconference teleservice. The terms "stage two" and "stage three" are also defined in CCITT Recommendation I.130 (see annex D). Where the text indicates the status of a requirement (i.e. as strict command or prohibition, as authorization leaving freedom, or as a capability or possibility), this is reflected in the text of the relevant stage two and stage three standards.
Furthermore, conformance to this ETS is met by conforming to the stage three standard with the field of application appropriate to the equipment being implemented concerning characteristics at the usernetwork interface, and by conforming to the standard on the end-to-end characteristics appropriate to the equipment being implemented. Therefore, no method of testing is provided for this ETS.
