TIA Issues a New Telecommunications - IP Telephony Equipment - Voice Gateway Transmission Requirements Standard

Arlington, VA (August 06, 2015) – The Telecommunications Industry Association, which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, ANSI/TIA-912-C Telecommunications - IP Telephony Equipment - Voice Gateway Transmission Requirements.

ANSI/TIA-912-C covers transmission requirements for voice gateways (VGs) that provide routing functions between telephones, traditional public and private networks, and modern packet-based networks. VGs include packet-based enterprise equipment, residential gateways, ADSL-based Integrated Access Devices (IADs), and cable-based Multimedia Terminal Adapters (MTAs). The main purpose of this revision is to add requirements for supporting wideband (nominally 100 to 7,000 Hz) analog telephones that may be connected to voice gateways for providing High Definition (HD) voice services such as those available using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

ANSI/TIA-912-C was formulated under the cognizance of the TIA TR-41 Performance and Accessibility for Communications Products, TR-41.3 Analog and Digital Wireline Terminals subcommittee.

For more information about TR-41 and how to participate in standards development with TIA, contact Marianna Kramarikova at standards@tiaonline.org.

TIA is actively seeking participation on these committees from the user and general interest communities.
