T-carrier (t1, T3, Etc)
t-carrier (T1, T3, etc)In telecommunications, T-carrier is the generic designator for any of several digitally multiplexed telecommunications carrier systems originally developed by Bell Labs and used in North America and Japan.The E-carrier system, where ‘E’ stands for European is compatible with the T-carrier and is used just about everywhere else in the world besides North America and Japan. It typically uses the E1 line rate and the E3 line rate. The E2 line rate is less commonly used. See the table below for speed comparisons.The basic unit of the T-carrier system is the DS0, which has a transmission rate of 64 kbit/ps, and is commonly used for one voice circuit. The most common legacy of this whole system is the line rate designations. A “T1” now seems to mean any data circuit that runs at the original 1.544 Mbit/s line rate. Originally the T1 format carried 24 pulse-code modulated, time-division multiplexed speech signals each encoded in 64 kbit/s streams, leaving 8 kbit/s of framing information which facilitates the synchronisation and demultiplexing at the receiver. T2 and T3 circuits channels carry multiple T1 channels multiplexed, resulting in transmission rates of up to 44.736 Mbit/s.The T-carrier system traditionally uses in-band signalling or bit-robbing, resulting in lower transmission rates than the E-carrier system. This resulted in many US ISDN installations only having an effective data rate of 56 kbit/s over a nominal 64 kbit/s channel. See also A&B.Note 1: The designators for T-carrier in the North American digital hierarchy correspond to the designators for the digital signal (DS) level hierarchy.Note 2: T-carrier systems were originally designed to transmit digitized voice signals. Current applications also include digital data transmission. Note 3: Historically, if an “F” precedes the “T”, fiber optical cables are utilised at the same rates. Note 4: The North American and Japanese hierarchies are based on multiplexing 24 voice-frequency channels and multiples thereof, whereas the European hierarchy is based on multiplexing 30 voice-frequency channels and multiples thereof.

Note 1: The DS designations are used in connection with the North American hierarchy only. Note 2: There are other communications links, are also deployed or are under development. Higher data rates are now often achieved by using Synchronous optical networking, SONET or Synchronous digital hierarchy, SDH.Source: from Federal Standard 1037C and from MIL-STD-188 and FOLDOCThis article is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License, and uses material from the Wikipedia article “t-carrier”.
