Abstract : The purpose of this study was to contribute to the development of facsimile teleconferencing standards that are consistent with the U. S. Government's requirements, and that meet the needs of the U. S. users. The two objectives are: investigate user and terminal requirements, and define the functionalities of the terminals, networks, and control management units; and based upon the results of the first objective, design protocols which address multiple function control, automatic call setup, transfer of control between conferees, billing, network connectivity. These objectives are addressed in the following sections: Type of Teleconference; User and Terminal Requirements; Teleconferencing Standardization Efforts; Multipoint Conferencing Capabilities; Recommendations; and Areas for Future Study.
