Definitions for "Voice Grade"
(VG) A channel that is capable of carrying voice-frequency signals.
Narrowband. A low-capacity communications Circuit/path. It usually implies a speed of 56Kbps or less. (Contrast with Wideband and Broadband)
(1) Access line suitable for voice, low-speed data, facsimile or telegraph service. (2) Line that generally has a frequency range of about 300 to 3000 Hz.
A term used to describe a typical dial-up line with a bandwidth of 3000 Hz.
In the public regulated telecommunications services, a service grade that is described in part 68, Title 47 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
A category of communications where bandwidth is equivalent to that of a telephone line obtained through the public telephone network. The maximum potential bandwidth of a voice-grade channel is approximately 20 kilohertz; however, most voice grade channels in a transmission facility are usually spaced 4,000 hertz apart, and not all of that bandwidth is generally available to a user due to the presence of noise-limiting loading coils. The telephone network itself is usually defined in terms of channels, with frequencies from 300 to 3,400 hertz.
