This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2011. Therefore this version remains current.
This International Standard defines the mapping functions in exchanges of Private Integrated Services Networks (PISNs)
required for the utilization of scenarios in which 64 kbit/s circuit mode connections are sub-multiplexed into 4 x 16 kbit/s
channels for carrying inter-PINX signalling and user information.
NOTE 1 - This International Standard has been prepared to meet the specific needs of an application for a particular user organisation.
However, it may also be applicable elsewhere. The requirements contained in this International Standard will be incorporated in any future
standard specifying a more generic approach to bearer conditioning.
In order to connect a Private Integrated Services Network Exchange (PINX) to another PINX, mapping functions are required
to adapt the specific interfaces at the C reference point to the application at the Q reference point. As such, mapping functions
provide for physical adaptation to the interface at the C reference point. Mapping functions also provide for the mapping of
user channels and signalling information at the Q reference point to the appropriate channels or timeslots at the C reference
The C and Q reference points are defined in ISO/IEC 11579-1.
The type of interface at the C reference point covered by this International Standard is the 64 kbit/s Unrestricted Digital Leased
Line (D64U) Terminal Equipment Interface, in accordance with ITU-T Rec. G.703.
At the Q reference point the mapping provides a 16 kbit/s service for user channels to support the transfer of unrestricted
digital information and to support the transfer of speech, and a packet mode service for the signalling channel. The applied
mapping is a static mapping, i.e. there is a fixed relationship between user and signalling channels at the Q reference point and
the interface at the C reference point.
Management functions relating to failure management are outside the scope of this International Standard.
This International Standard is applicable to PINXs that can be interconnected to form a Private Integrated Services Network
(PISN) and that support signalling protocols at the Q reference point.
