ITU Agrees on a New Key IP Standard.
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has announced that it has approved an important new standard specifying the transport of internet protocol (IP) structured signals over public networks based on 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.
According to the ITU, this standard and others are major steps forward for the ITU-T in moving telecommunications networks toward integration with the Internet and other IP-based networks, to improve global opportunities for integrated voice, data, image, and video communication.
