Foreword

This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) has been produced by the Network Aspects (NA)

Technical Committee of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).

This ETS sets out arrangements for the international operation of the telefax group 4 teleservice within the

Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN). The ISDN telefax group 4 teleservice will use standardised

group 4 facsimile terminals, the requirements for which are set out in relevant CCITT Recommendations,

which are referenced within this ETS (see Clause 2 and Annex A).
This ETS covers group 4 - class I facsimile terminals.

1 Scope

The telefax group 4 teleservice within the Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) is an international

service, offered by service providers, enabling subscribers to exchange correspondence either manually or

automatically via telecommunication networks.

Subscribers can communicate by means of group 4 facsimile terminals standardised in accordance with

the appropriate CCITT Recommendations on an international level.

The basic element of the correspondence between people using the service is the page, as the smallest

unit of text treated as an entity. No restrictions shall exist so far as the operator procedures for generation

of the text or the positioning of text within the reproducible area on a page are concerned.

As defined in the appropriate CCITT Recommendations (see Clause 2), there are three classes of group 4

facsimile terminals:

Class I: the minimum requirement for class I is a terminal which is able to send and receive

documents containing facsimile encoded information (in accordance with CCITT
Recommendations T.6 [13], T.503 [1], T.563 [2] and T.400 [10] series).

Class II: the minimum requirement for class II is a terminal which is able to transmit documents

that are facsimile encoded (in accordance with CCITT Recommendations T.6 [13],

T.503 [1] and T.400 [10] series). In addition, the terminal shall be capable of receiving

documents which are facsimile coded (in accordance with CCITT Recommendations

T.6 [13], T.503 [1] and T.400 [10] series), teletex coded (in accordance with the basic

coded character repertoire as defined in CCITT Recommendation T.61 [9]), and also

mixed-mode documents (in accordance with CCITT Recommendations T.501 [11] and
T.400 [10] series).

Class III: the minimum requirement for class III is a terminal which is capable of generating,

transmitting and receiving facsimile coded documents (in accordance with CCITT

Recommendations T.6 [13], T.503 [1] and T.400 [10] series), teletex coded documents

(in accordance with the basic coded character repertoire as defined in CCITT
Recommendation T.61 [9]) and mixed-mode documents (in accordance with CCITT
Recommendations T.501 [11] and T.400 [10] series).

Service requirements contained in this standard take into account group 4 - class I facsimile terminals.

4 Telefax group 4 service profile
4.1 General

The telefax group 4 service profile takes account of a number of different types of terminals:

- dedicated facsimile terminals;

- non-dedicated facsimile terminals (e.g. personal computer-based multi-service terminal);

- multi-user system or multi-access systems (e.g. telefax Private Automatic Branch eXchange

(PABX), Local Area Network (LAN)).

A basic level of compatibility is provided between any two terminals, both nationally and internationally, so

that they may communicate image-coded information to each other. This is achieved by requiring that

terminals comply with ETSs 300 080 [3], 300 087 [4] and 300 112 [6].
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
SIST ETS 300 120 E1:2003
Page 9
ETS 300 120: November 1992

It is recognised that some subscribers may need to use their group 4 facsimile terminals to communicate

nationally and internationally using service features that are not included in the basic requirements.

Therefore a number of options, recommended by CCITT, are defined. However, the number of

standardised options is restricted, as shown in subclause 4.2, to those features for which a clear

international need can be foreseen.

The sending terminal shall ensure the transmission of documents using only those options that have been

indicated as being available at the receiving terminal.
4.2 Description

Group 4 facsimile terminals shall provide standardised facsimile transmission with a scanning and printing

device:

- the printer is optional and its provision depends on user needs. However, a telefax group 4 facsimile

terminal shall be able to output a received document to a printer;

- in addition to other conformance testing specifications laid down elsewhere in this standard, since

only the physical presence of the printer is optional, the ability to output a received document to a

printer shall be capable of verification;

- while the scanner is optional, the terminal shall be able to accept input either from a physical

scanner, or from a wire plug-in interface, floppy disc, or LAN, etc.

Concurrent output while receiving is not mandatory. In the case of standardised mode communication, and

provided the printer is available, the terminal shall print out at least the first page of the document as soon

as possible. Additional facilities may be provided on an optional or private mode basis, e.g. to enable the

document to be received into memory and retrieved by use of a password, or re-routed to another

terminal.

In principle, telefax group 4 facsimile terminals for which call numbers are published in directories shall be

continuously available to accept calls.

Secured page-oriented end to end transmission via telematic protocols shall be provided.

Alarm indicators (visual and/or audible) shall be provided in the terminals, to inform users about conditions

that could have an adverse effect on the quality of service.
Where appropriate, the following indicators shall be provided:
a) terminals unable to transmit (e.g. paper jam at transmitting end);

b) terminals unable or soon unable to receive (e.g. paper jam or receiving memory nearly full);

c) operator assistance required;
d) message received in store.
The terminals shall transmit at 64 kbit/s within the ISDN.

The reproduction of the receiving page shall be identical with the original in content, format and layout.

The paper format shall be as provided by CCITT Recommendation T.563 [2], Chapter III.

---------------------- Page: 11 ----------------------
SIST ETS 300 120 E1:2003
Page 10
ETS 300 120: November 1992
Transmission resolution shall be in accordance with the following requirements:
- basic:
- 200 x 200 picture elements/inch (standard value);
- optional:
- 240 x 240 picture elements/inch;
- 300 x 300 picture elements/inch;
- 400 x 400 picture elements/inch.

As a standardised option, the group 4 facsimile terminal can be capable of downward compatibility to

group 3.

A non-dedicated terminal (e.g. a Personal Computer (PC) with facsimile application) shall be capable of

visualising a scanned or converted document in facsimile mode stored previously in memory before

transmission.

The format of a telefax group 4 facsimile Terminal IDentification (TID) shall conform to the format for

terminals of the telematic services (according to CCITT Recommendation F.200 [12]).

The call identification line shall be (unless disabled by the user) printed out locally, but outside of the

information field, on the top or on the bottom of each page of the hard copy.

Facilities shall be provided to clearly indicate to the user the result of each communication process. It is

recommended that this indication is provided by a journal which contains the information in chronological

order (see subclause 5.7).
5 Service requirements
5.1 General

In a telematic service, in which end to end compatibility between terminals is guaranteed and in which the

network only has a transparent transport function during the connection, the terminal features shall cover

the full range of functions needed by the service.

The following subclauses list the service requirements to be fulfilled by terminals. These requirements shall

be implemented by all manufacturers and shall be available in all different systems.

5.2 Information suited for transmission

The transmission of facsimile copies shall not be subject to any restriction concerning the form, the

representation and the content of the message.
5.3 Printable area
A telefax document shall be based on the ISO A4 page.
The basic features of page formats shall be as follows:
a) paper format ISO A4
...
