ASYNCHRONOUS MODE VIDEO LINK ESTABLISHED BETWEEN UK, FRANCE

By CBR Staff Writer

France’s National Centre for Telecommunications Research has announced that British Telecommunications Plc and France Telecom have established the first experimental videoconferencing link between their two countries using the Asynchronous Transfer Mode pilot network set up by 18 European operators at the beginning of last year (CI No 2,507). The connection will be used for experiments to test interoperability and performance on the network. As part of the pilot test, H.320-based videoconferencing terminals at British Telecom’s laboratories at Martlesham Heath in Suffolk, and at the French centre’s laboratories in Lannion will communicate via Asynchronous Transfer Mode switches installed in London, Lannion and Paris, running at speeds between 34M-bits and 155M-bits per second.
