This document defines Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) packages
that enable a Call Agent to authorize and monitor the transition of a
connection to and from Voiceband Data (VBD) with or without
redundancy and FEC (forward error correction).  Although the focus is
on VBD, the General-Purpose Media Descriptor Parameter package can be
used to authorize other modes of operation, not relevant to VBD, for
a particular codec.  In addition to defining these new packages, this
document describes the use of the Media Format Parameter package and
Fax package with VBD, redundancy, and FEC.  This document is not an 
Internet Standards Track specification; it is published for 
informational purposes.
