V.22 is an ITU Telecommunications Standardization Sector recommendation used for full duplex communication between two analog dial-up modems using phrase-shift keying modulation at 600 baud to carry data at around 1,200 or 600 bits per second. V.22 is a variation of the Bell 212 A modulation format.
V.22 is the first true world standard developed for half duplex communication at 1,200 bps and is used mainly in Europe and Japan. In the United States, the protocol is defined by the Bell 212 A. Modems that adhere to this standard and are used on generalized switched telephone networks (GSTN) and point-to-point circuits.
V.22 is pronounced as v-dot-twenty-two.
The main characteristic features of modems using the V.22 standard are:
The V.22 recommendations provide three alternative configurations.
Asynchronous mode selections are made during the handshake sequence and provide compatibility between the second and third configuration alternatives.
Data streams to be transmitted are divided into groups of two consecutive bits. Every bit is encoded as a phase change relative to the phase of the preceding signal elements. The bits at the receiver side are encoded and then reassembled in the correct order. The left-hand digit of the bit stream is the one that occurs first in the data stream as it enters the modulator portion of the modem after it has left the scrambler.
