The International Telecommunication Union has approved an important new standard on the transport of Internet Protocol (IP) structured signals over public networks.

The move by the United Nations telecommunications agency, marks a major step in moving telecommunication networks towards integration with the Internet, and other IP-based networks, to improve global opportunities for integrated voice, data, image and video communication.

'The new standard provides a common basis for interworking Internet and IP-based applications between different networks and different vendors in the public domain,' said Brian Moore, chairman of the ITU-T study group who produced the recommendation for the new standard.
