DS3 Payload

  • General: A single internally or externally generated asynchronous DS3 signal is mapped into an STS-1 payload
  • Frame Patterns: M13, C-bit, unframed
  • Payload Patterns: 223-1, 215-1, AIS, Idle, All Ones

Tributary VT1.5 Payload

  • General: A single internally or externally generated asynchronous DS1 signal is mapped into a specified STS-1 payload virtual tributary

  • Framing: Unframed, SF, ESF, SLC96
  • Modes: Floating, Bit Asynchronous, simplified H4 coding. Bit Synchronous Locked, Byte Floating, Byte Locked.
  • VT Pointer Justification: Positive and negative single justifications. New Data Flag (NDF) operations cause the pointer to jump to a new location.
