  1. V.18The bridge between old and future communication for deaf peopleProducts & Concepts George Skorkowski DSPG/Sensory Communication

  2. Contents • 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 15th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

  3. V.18 Practical aspects of the standard and general misconceptions about it 15th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

  4. 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 15th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

  5. V.18 Modes 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) 15th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

  6. Current development of V.18 • CTM Mobile access for the textphones • Simultaneous Text & Voice 15th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

  7. V.18 Conformance testing to the standardWhy it is important 15th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

  8. 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. 15th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

  9. 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. 15th Biennial TDI International Conference – Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
