TDMoE - Time Division Multiplexing over Ethernet

This protocol was originally created by Mark Spencer in Digium, Inc for enabling Asterisk users to use TDM protocols over inexpensive hardware (Ethernet Hardware).


This protocol is a container for 'all' TDM based telephony-protocols. Unfortunatly, the TDMoE protocol does not contain information about what protocol(s) it transmits, so to further decode the data stream, you need to know exactly the configuration of the transmitting party.

Inside the TDM stream you can have a number of different configurations of framing systems, coding systems and protocols such as the ones contained inside the BRI, PRI or SS7 signalling specifications.
