FLO technology standardization submitted
The FLO Forum, a group of wireless industry leaders supporting FLO (Forward Link-Only) technology, announced that the FLO Transport Specification has been submitted to the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) TR-47.1 subcommittee.
This technical submission will be reviewed under the recently approved TIA TR47.1 work item PN-3-0270, Forward Link Only Transport Specification, and marks another milestone in the open standardization of FLO technology.
The proposed standard specifies the framing formats and procedures for securely delivering application service packets over the FLO air interface (TIA-1099). The framing (upper) layer defined in the FLO Transport Specification delivers variable-sized service packets, such as compressed video and audio or IP data, as a set of fixed-size frames. The stream encryption/decryption (lower) layer defined in the FLO Transport Specification provides optional encryption/decryption services for those service streams subject to conditional access.
