 Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) Voiceband Data (VBD) Package and
           General-Purpose Media Descriptor Parameter Package

Abstract

   This document defines Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) packages
   that enable a Call Agent to authorize and monitor the transition of a
   connection to and from Voiceband Data (VBD) with or without
   redundancy and FEC (forward error correction).  Although the focus is
   on VBD, the General-Purpose Media Descriptor Parameter package can be
   used to authorize other modes of operation, not relevant to VBD, for
   a particular codec.  In addition to defining these new packages, this
   document describes the use of the Media Format Parameter package and
   Fax package with VBD, redundancy, and FEC.
