Tele-Communication (Telecom) Terms Glossary and Dictionary
GloBanD is an European Switched Nx64 data service consisting of a single circuit whose bandwidth is a multiple of 64 kbps. This circuit consists of one or more B channels. For example, if a caller requests 512 kbps service, the line uses 8 B channels to supply the requested bandwidth. This service is available over T1 PRI lines only, and follows the CCITT Q.931 recommendation. It differs from MultiRate in being an overlay network, rather than an integral part of the worldwide switched digital infrastructure.
