ABSTRACT: GR-565 replaces TR-TSY-000565, Issue 1, but contains NO TECHNICAL CHANGES from that original document. It has been issued strictly to
conform with the new Telcordia Technologies document format and GR process, and carries a new issue number and date.
The Voice/Data Protection (VDP) feature provides protection to business group lines from interruptions of the transmission path.
These interruptions may be caused by other features assigned to that line or by other lines within the same business group. Two
examples of features that may cause interruptions are Call Waiting (CW) and Dial Call Waiting (DCW). For CW, the interruption is due to
a feature assigned to the line receiving a call, and for DCW the interruption is due to a feature assigned to the line making the call
and applied to the line receiving the call. This GR provides the view of Telcordia on generic requirements for the VDP feature.
