0B+D Definition


Referring to a variation of the ITU-T specification for ISDN basic rate interface (BRI), also known as basic rate access (BRA). BRI supports two bearer (B) channels and one data (D) channel. Intended for applications that do not require an information-bearing channel for voice or data transmission, 0B+D supports zero bearer (B) channels and one data (D) channel. The D channel is designated for signalling and control purposes, but also can be used for low-speed packet data applications such as transaction processing, credit card verification, and telemetry. See also 1B+D, BRI, and ISDN.
