A virtual channel is a generic name for the description of a unidirectional communication capability for the transport of ATM cells. Each time a cell, which is being transported over a VC,is switched in the network a new VCI is assigned to it. source: EU-P103 domain: General acronyms: VC usage: EU-P103
a channel accessible through the Internet, hosting content that is related to the content provider or a specific topic
a logical connection between two end devices on an ATM network
a service that is distributed, accessed and/or displayed in a manner similar to program services delivered on other television channels
a situation where you have multiple instances of the same channel
a unidirectional pipe
A single connection established across a UNI or NNI that defines a route between two end-points in an ATM network.
A channel that is not associated with an interface to the telephone network (T1, LSE1/LST1, or PRI). Virtual channels are intended to run data-only applications which do not interact with callers but may interact with DIPs. Voice or network functions (for example, coding or playing speech, call answer, origination, or transfer) do not work on a virtual channel. Virtual channel applications can be initiated only by a virtual seizure request to TSM from a DIP.
Channels broadcasted with major and minor information contained in the PSIP package. The number of virtual channels a broadcaster can send depends on the resolution of the programming.
A channel that appears to the user to be a simple, direct connection, but in fact is implemented in a more complex manner.
A logical point-to-point connection between two processes. Many virtual channels may time share a single link to hide latency and to avoid deadlock.
An individual connection within a virtual path.
In ATM, the specific conversation path over which the cells from a given conversation flow from one ATM switch to another.
The communication channel that provides for the sequential unidirectional transport of ATM cells.
n. In Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), the path taken by data sent from one sender to one receiver. See also ATM (definition 1), virtual path (definition 2).
Enables queuing, packet scheduling, and accounting rules to be applied to one or more logical interfaces. See also virtual channel group.
In telecommunications, a logical channel number (LCN), also known as virtual channel in North America, is a channel designation which differs from the actual radio channel or frequency on which the signal travels.
