Big corporations aren’t the only ones that need high-quality telephone services anymore. Every day more and more people are working from home or in small offices and need the same high-quality service. This is where an Integrated Service Digital Network, or ISDN, comes in extremely handy. The thing is, many people use ISDN every day and don’t even know what it really is. ISDN is a type of telephone service. It is really just an advanced way to send digital transmissions over copper phone lines. The whole purpose of ISDNs is to let you send and receive data over normal phone wires at a higher rate than you would send and receive them using a standard method of transmission.
Why Are ISDN Lines Different?
ISDN lines are used for voice and data communications starting with 2 lines. You can add up to 8 lines, which can increase the amount of bandwidth available to your business. This means that as your business grows your communication options grow as well. The biggest difference between a standard line and ISDN lines is that you can use the Internet and still be able to make a phone call or send a fax. You will also be able to send and receive calls that are much clearer and sharper than standard phone lines. Also, if you install an ISDN adapter you can receive web pages at speeds up to 128 Kbps compared to the maximum 56 Kbps you get with a modem connection.
How Do ISDN Lines Work?
The way ISDN works has to do with the type of waveform an analog modem sends versus a digital modem waveform. An analog phone line can pick up a lot of interference giving it that static sound and the digital signal cannot travel as far as copper lines can on an analog signal which is where ISDN lines come in. ISDN lines have to be conditioned to work properly and special equipment needs to be installed that can strengthen the signal allowing you to get more quality sound. Using Fast File Transfer you can send files over the ISDN Network to another computer with ISDN access and file-transfer software. The more connections you have the higher your bandwidth is and the more calls you will be able to take.
