isochronous burst transmission


isochronous burst transmission: In a data network where the information-bearer channel rate is higher than the input data signaling rate, transmission performed by interrupting, at controlled intervals, the data stream being transmitted. Note 1: Isochronous burst transmission enables communication between data terminal equipment (DTE) and data networks that operate at dissimilar data signaling rates, such as when the information-bearer channel rate is higher than the DTE output data signaling rate. Note 2: The binary digits are transferred at the information-bearer channel rate. The transfer is interrupted at intervals in order to produce the required average data signaling rate. Note 3: The interruption is always for an integral number of unit intervals. (188) Note 4: Isochronous burst transmission has particular application where envelopes are being transferred between data circuit-terminating equipment (DCE) and only the bytes contained within the envelopes are being transferred between the DCE and the DTE. Synonyms burst isochronous (deprecated) , interrupted isochronous transmission.
