Abstract

FAA Telecommunications Infrastructure-2 (FTI-2) TDM-to-IP
Developed by the N&T COI FTI-2 Working Group,  Networks and Telecommunications (N&T) Community of Interest
Date Released: May 11, 2017

Virtually all local exchange carriers in the U.S. will migrate their networks from the current TDM based architecture to an architecture that is based on Ethernet access to an IP fabric. Two primary drivers for this migration are (1) more efficient bandwidth in an IP environment and (2) equipment manufacturers and chip set providers will soon discontinue production of TDM based equipment.
This white paper will attempt to address some of the fundamental issues relating to TDM to IP migration; it also addresses timelines, migration strategies and network adaptive technologies for those applications that continue to demand a TDM interface.ACT-IAC N&T COI FTI-2 TDM-to IP  White Paper
