Abstract : The purpose of this document is to summarize the work accomplished on Sub task 4 (Transporting Video Teleconferencing Traffic) of Task 2 (Technical Work in the Area of Videoconferencing) of this contract. The purpose of this subtask was to study alternative media for transporting video teleconferencing traffic. In the first step of the project basic transport media (as opposed to Alternative Media) which are commonly used for video conferencing were reviewed. This analysis provides reference for the discussion of the non-traditional telecommunication techniques. Four alternative transport media were examined: LANs/MANs, PSTN, mobile radio, and Internet. Each of these media is reviewed and analyzed in a separate section of the report. The status of the technology for each medium is reviewed including a review of the standardization status. Commercial products, if any, are identified and classified. Finally the applications and implications of the medium to provide video telephone services in the Government community are reviewed. Overall conclusions and recommendations are included.
