ITU Approves New IP Recommendation

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has approved a new standard specifying the transport of Internet Protocol (IP) structured signals over public networks based on the Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) technology.

The new standard, ITU-T Recommendation Y.1310 (Transport of IP over ATM in Public Networks) is the second major IP-related standard issued by ITU-T Study Group 13. Last year the Study Group completed Recommendation Y.1540, which defines performance parameters for quantifying IP network performance. This is to be followed by Y.1541, which will define quality of service (QoS) classes and performance objectives that should be achieved by IP network providers in assuring the end-to-end performance of IP communications.

"The new standard provides a common basis for interworking Internet and IP-based applications between different networks and different vendors in the public domain," said Brian Moore, chairman of ITU-T Study Group 13.

These new standards represent a step forward for the ITU-T in moving telecommunications networks towards integration with the Internet, and other IP-based networks, to improve global opportunities for integrated voice, data, image, and video communication.
