1 International Telecommunication Union Plenary Session on ITU-T Standards 15th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA V.18 The bridge between old and future communication for deaf people Products & Concepts George Skorkowski DSPG/Sensory Communication

2 ITU-T July th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA V.18 practical aspects & misconceptions Current developments in V.18 Recommendation Consumer products based on V.18 technology V.18 Mobile access Simultaneous Voice and Text products Service type products based on V.18 technology Contents

3 ITU-T July th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA V.18 Practical aspects of the standard and general misconceptions about it

4 ITU-T July th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA Why V.18 ? International standard - Accepted as a standard in all European countries, Australia & New Zealand Bridge between old and new technologies - Higher speed modems - Multimedia Inter-working - Can inter-work with any existing text Telephone - Future global integration with Internet & Multimedia Ease of use - More reliable call set-up - User friendly operation

5 ITU-T July th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA Compatibility Mode V.18 Mode Used with existing TextphonesUsed between two V.18 Textphones - V.21 (Sweden, UK) - Baudot (45 and 50bps) (USA, UK, Ireland) - EDT (Italy,Germany) - Bell 103 (USA) - V.23 (France) - DTMF (Denmark, Sweden, Netherlands) V.18 Modes

6 ITU-T July th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA CTM Mobile access for the textphones Simultaneous Text & Voice Current development of V.18

7 ITU-T July th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA V.18 Conformance testing to the standard Why it is important

8 ITU-T July th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA Why V.18 Conformance testing is Important Specified in V.18 Recommendation Appendix 4 Ensures interworking between textphones Small volumes and lack of competition between textphone manufacturers means they are not subject to the same market forces to ensure interoperability. Benefits the deaf and hard of hearing To maximise the benefits of V.18, all features should be implemented - automoding, all compatibility modes, V.18 universal transfer mode, etc. Verification of various implementations ensures these benefits are gained.

9 ITU-T July th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA Why V.18 Conformance testing is Important Reduces complaints about textphones - Tighter control of textphone quality in the market ensures better reliability of textphone operation and reduces failure rate. Benefits V.18 implementers - Allows verification of the implementation.
