18. Protocol Buster


This section lists the protocols and standards which may be encountered and gives each a brief description of each. This is not an exhaustive list.







These standards and recommendations are issued by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU-T), formerly the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (CCITT), which is a specialist agency of the United Nations.

There are four series of protocol and standard references that are commonly encountered in the area of communications covered by this document. These are

I Series Standards referring to ISDN and related topics
Q Series Standards relevant to European ISDN networks
V Series Recommendations covering data transmission over telephone lines
X Series Recommendations covering the interfacing of data transmission and terminal devices

The following list is for reference.
