    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies mechanical and electrical requirements and tests for simple telephones for connection to a single exchange line or branch systems of the public switched telephone network run by some licensed public telecommunication operators. Not applicable to apparatus for connection to shared service lines. Does not specify requirements for apparatus for connection as extensions on any form of PBX. Applies to apparatus for office, household and similar general indoor use. Coverage includes: marking, speech signalling conditions, speech transmission process, call control, safety, and dial labels. Also includes annexes, tables and diagrams.
