Information technology - Telecommunications and information exchange between systems - Broadband Private Integrated Services Network - Inter-exchange signalling protocol - Generic functional protocol (Adopted ISO/IEC 19058:2001, first edition, 2001-05-01)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This International Standard was reviewed by the CSA TCIT under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Information Technology and deemed acceptable for use in Canada. (A committee membership list is available on request from the CSA Project Manager.) From time to time, ISO/IEC may publish addenda, corrigenda, etc. The CSA TCIT will review these documents for approval and publication. For a listing, refer to the CSA Information Products catalogue or CSA Info Update or contact a CSA Sales representative. This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada.
This International Standard specifies the functional protocol for the support of supplementary services and additional basic call capabilities at the Q-reference point. The Q-reference point exists between Private Integrated services Network eXchanges (PINX) connected together within a Private Integrated Services Network (PISN) and is defined in ISO/IEC 11579-1. The generic functional protocol is part of the B-QSIG signalling system.
The procedures specified in this International Standard can be used in association with a bearer connection (bearer-related) or outside the context of any bearer connection (bearer-independent).
The application of this International Standard to individual additional basic call capabilities and supplementary services is outside the scope of this International Standard and should be defined in those standards or proprietary specifications that specify the individual capabilities.
All conformance to this International Standard is based on the external behaviour at the interface at the Q-reference point, i.e. on the generation of the correct message structure and in the proper sequence as specified in this International Standard. The generic functional protocol is based on ATM Forum specification AF-CS-0102.000, which itself is based on the DSS2 generic functional protocol specified in ITU-T Rec. Q.2932.1 but extended to allow non-local information exchange as well as local information exchange.
This International Standard is applicable to PINXs supporting additional basic call capabilities and/or supplementary services requiring the functional protocol for signalling at the Q-reference point.
