ABSTRACT: Program audio services are typically one-way, full- or part-time communication services provided by the Local Exchange Carrier (LEC)
between an Interexchange Carrier (IC) Point Of Termination (POT) and a POT of an End User (EU), or between POTs of the same or
different EUs. The services are provided on any form or configuration of physical plant capable of transmitting the complex signal
voltage of speech or music for broadcast material.
This Generic Requirements (GR) document describes the view of Telcordia on Program Audio Special Access and Local Channel Services
(Program Audio Services) that may be offered by LECs to ICs or EUs. The description covers service features, technical generic
requirements, and interfaces. In addition, a quantitative and qualitative description of service at EU and IC-POTs is provided so that
compatible operation will be achieved.
