Formerly known as OnRamp 2, ISDN 2 transforms your existing analogue telephone line into two digital connections.
Integrated Services for Digital Network (ISDN) is a set of communication standards for simultaneous digital transmission of voice, video, data, and other network services over the traditional circuits of the public switched telephone network. It was first defined in 1988 in the CCITT red book. Prior to ISDN, the telephone system was viewed as a way to transport voice, with some special services available for data. The key feature of ISDN is that it integrates speech and data on the same lines, adding features that were not available in the classic telephone system. There are several kinds of access interfaces to ISDN defined as Basic Rate Interface (BRI), Primary Rate Interface (PRI), Narrowband ISDN (N-ISDN), and Broadband ISDN (B-ISDN).
ISDN is a circuit-switched telephone network system, which also provides access to packet switched networks, designed to allow digital transmission of voice and data over ordinary telephone copper wires, resulting in potentially better voice quality than an analog phone can provide. It offers circuit-switched connections (for either voice or data), and packet-switched connections (for data), in increments of 64 kilobit/s. A major market application for ISDN in some countries is Internet access, where ISDN typically provides a maximum of 128 kbit/s in both upstream and downstream directions. Channel bonding can achieve a greater data rate; typically the ISDN B-channels of three or four BRIs (six to eight 64 kbit/s channels) are bonded.
ISDN should not be mistaken for its use with a specific protocol, such as Q.931 whereas ISDN is employed as the network, data-link and physical layers in the context of the OSI model. In a broad sense ISDN can be considered a suite of digital services existing on layers 1, 2, and 3 of the OSI model. ISDN is designed to provide access to voice and data services simultaneously.
However, common use reduced ISDN to be limited to Q.931 and related protocols, which are a set of protocols for establishing and breaking circuit switched connections, and for advanced calling features for the user. They were introduced in 1986.
In a videoconference, ISDN provides simultaneous voice, video, and text transmission between individual desktop videoconferencing systems and group (room) videoconferencing systems.
A Direct In-Dial is a range of 100 numbers allocated to your ISDN service.
It is sometimes referred to as 100 Number range. Direct In-Dial ranges are always in blocks of 100 and are only available on ISDN2 and ISDN 10/20/30 services. In-dial ranges always start with 00 as the last two digits
and end with 99 as the last two digits of the range. Multiple In-Dial Ranges can be supplied on a single ISDN service on Telaustralia Telstra and Optus services.
Even though you may only have 2/4/6 lines you can have 100 numbers and this allows you to allocate a direct dial number for any individual or department with your company. This allows you to efficiently manage your calls by directly internal and direct calls to the desired locations while retaining the ability to direct certain advertised numbers via a receptionist or call centre.
With a Direct In-Dial range you are also have access to Extension Level billing which allows you to bill calls out via each extension of the 100 number range. Typical application for this would be serviced offices where the calls need to be metered or call costs from a particular extension billed back to a customer or department.
Direct In-Dial is available on ISDN 2 and ISDN 10/2030 and all Networks delivered by Telaustralia including Telstra, Optus and AAPT.
ISDN2 enhanced services are identical to standard ISDN2 services but are supplied with an integrated network termination device and router. Since this hardware is more expensive to supply, the monthly line rental is a few dollars higher than standard ISDN2. The integrated unit supplied currently is the Open Networks NT1 plus II . This unit allows the customer to connect multiple computers on a small LAN to the ISDN service to leverage the ISDN investment. The NT1 plus II also allows customers to “bond” the two channels together for 128kbps internet access when no phone lines are in use. Although these units require mains power they have the ability to keep the main phone line active during a mains power failure.
ISDN technology converts a standard analogue telephone line into 3 separate channels. 2 Bearer Channels Each bearer channel has an available bandwidth of 64kbps which can be used for voice, video, data, or multimedia calls. These bearer channels can be aggregated together to give 128kbps bandwidth which is useful in areas where broadband internet access is not available. 1 Delta Channel The Delta (“D”) channel has an available bandwidth of 16 kbps and cannot, therefore, be used for voice calls. It is used primarily for communications (or “signaling”) between switching equipment in the ISDN network and the ISDN equipment at your site. Due to the above structure you may sometimes see an ISDN2 service referred to as ISDN (2B+D).
As ISDN is digital, there is no need for a modem. However, a customer will need a terminal adapter to receive the ISDN service. A terminal adapter enables the communication from the user’s terminal to the network and serves as an interface between the ISDN BRI line and the customers equipment. Terminal adapters are sometimes referred to as Network Termination (NT) devices or ISDN modems/routers, although this latter term is slightly misleading. The terminal adapter is provided by the ISDN service provider. To connect the customer’s local area network (LAN) to an ISDN2 service the customer will require a separate ISDN router or (as is more common) a terminal adapter with a modem / router built in. Customer wishing to connect a LAN to an ISDN2 service should choose the ISDN2 enhanced service.
It pretty simple. We take your 2 PSTN numbers and arrange for them to be converted to ISDN2. Its as simple as that.
Yes you can. It takes approx 15-30 working days and there is a service charge for the conversion.
ISDN services come in two types known as Basic Rate Interfaces or Basic Rate Access(BRI/BRA) ISDN 2 and Primary Rate Interfaces or Primary Rate Access (PRI/PRA) ISDN 10/20/30. ISDN services are only available in channel blocks of 2, 10, 20 and 30. If a customer needs, say 6 channels they must implement 3 x ISDN2 connections. For customers wanting, say 14 channels they must implement an ISDN10 and 2 X ISDN2 channels. Customers cannot order an odd number of channels.
ISDN can be used for a range of voice, data, video and image transfer applications including – Telephony: ISDN provides clear telephone connections. In conjunction with digital telephones, small phone systems and PABX systems, ISDN can offer some additional call and messaging features compared to analogue services. Prior to the increased availability of ADSL internet ISDN 2 was also used as the highest speed available Internet service.
ISDN primary rate services are only available in blocks of 10, 20 or 30. If a customer requires a number between two blocks they will need to combine a primary rate service with one or more basic rate services. Since basic rate services only come in multiples of two it is impossible to have an odd number of ISDN channels. As an example, to achieve, say 16 channels a customer would need 1 x ISDN 10 3 x ISDN2 This would require the customer to have a PABX with both a primary rate interface card and a basic rate interface card installed.
With Call Control, you can turn the selected barring level/s on and off as often as you require. In this section, provide the barring level/s which you require to be active with Call Control turned on. A Personal Identification Pin (PIN) will be provided by Telaustralia and is required to activate and deactivate Call Control.
A lead-in is a conduit, usually installed underground, which allows for the installation of telephone cabling from the Telstra Pit in the street to the customers Building Distributor on their premises. New or recently redeveloped sites may not have a current Lead-In. If a Lead-In does not exist, your application for an ISDN service may be delayed. Additional Cabling if Telstra is required to run additional cabling to connect the NT1 to the network, fee for service charges will apply.
S-Bus cabling is cabling past the NT1 to which allows up to 8 ITEMS of terminal equipment to be connected. DC Power Pack The 40V DC power pack provides extra power to the S-Bus which is required by some brands of Customer Equipment (CE). Talk to your CE supplier before selecting this option
In the normal service configuration the calling line identification (calling number) is sent forward with each call and is presented to a called party who subscribes to Calling Line Identification Presentation or Calling Number Display. The sending forward of the CLI can be blocked on a call by call basis from some CE.
Alternatively, you may have the service configured to prevent the forwarding of CLI. In this configuration the sending forward of CLI on a call by call basis can be initiated by some CE. This configuration is Calling Line Identification Restriction (CLIR).Please check with your CE supplier to confirm how you can both allow and restrict presentation of your telephone number. Calling Line Identification allows the telephone number of the caller to be presented on most incoming calls; unless this has been restricted by the
This feature informs you when another caller is trying to get through to you while you are using the full capacity of your service (both B channels). It enables you to take the incoming call and place one channel on hold.
1. With Call Forward Immediate, you can forward your calls to a number you select and change it at any time. Your calls will be forwarded immediately.
2. With Call Forward Busy, your calls will be forwarded to the number you select if your phone is busy.
3. With Call Forward No Answer, your calls will be forwarded to the number you select if your phone is not answered within 20 seconds. You can change the time delay from 5-60 seconds
Fixed number forwarding means you can forward to a previously selected number stored in the telephone exchange. In this section you must nominate the number to which the calls are to be forwarded and whether you wish this to occur for Immediate, Busy or No Answer options.
With Enquiry /Conference, you can make another (enquiry) call to a third person when you are already on a call. If you with, you can then have a three-way conversation (conference). Section 12 – Activated Call Redirection – All service types excluding DID Pt to Multi Pt
This feature is a permanent activated redirection. This is typically applied where a customer is unable to activate call forward from their CE and requires call forward on their active ISDN service (eg forward on busy). This feature is applied as a call forward
fixed and applied by Telaustralia. Note: This is not a disaster recovery redirection and cannot be activated within a short time frame (activation of this feature may take up to 5 days). There are other options available for disaster recovery redirection.
Call Transfer allows the ISDN2 customer to transfer an established voice call to any other number (ie fixed or mobile) anywhere in Australia or overseas. The ISDN 2 customer pays standard ISDN 2 call costs for the successfully transferred leg of the call. Call
Transfer feature rental charges apply. Subscription to the Call Transfer feature automatically includes the Enquiry / Conference feature.
This feature allows you to activate the recording of the caller’s telephone number of a current call. The call details are recorded at the Telstra exchange and used by Telstra to identify the service from which the offending call/s are generated. If necessary, Telstra will involve the police. Prior to July 2001, this feature has been provided to all ISDN services as Malicious Call Trace (MCT), a non-ETSI feature. ETSI compliant MCID is now available and is functionally identical to MCT. Customers subscribing to this feature will be provided with Malicious Call Trace as well as Malicious Caller Identification (as the capability of CE to handle each version may differ). Subscription to MCID/MCT will apply the feature per access for Multi Number services; on all accesses for Line Hunt services with Multi Number and across the whole number range for DID services. Please consult your CE supplier if you plan to use this feature. Extra charges apply for this supplementary feature.
All service types excluding DID Pt to Multi This feature allows you to send and receive from another user, information in packets of 128 Octets each. There are two types of User to User messaging available: • User to User 1 : Where information is only sent between users during call establishment and clear down • User to User 3: Where information is only sent between users during the active part of the call. This feature is not supported on international calls. Please consult your CE supplier if you plan to use this feature. Extra charges apply for this supplementary feature.
Only available on DID Pt to Pt / Not compatible on DID Pt to Multi Pt The feature allows you to receive details of call costs for each of your extensions. On your account you will receive a listing of the extension numbers and a list of the calls made from each extension with start time, duration, indication whether voice or data call, cost, called number, destination and rate. The feature is applied across the entire allocated range, and is not applied to individual extensions in isolation. Extra charges apply for this supplementary feature.
Only on DID Pt to Pt/Not compatible on DID Pt to Multi Pt This feature allows you to redirect all incoming national reverse charge calls and all international operator . connected calls to a nominated number (which will generally be an operator console). This assists you to prevent the acceptance of unauthorised incoming calls. The diversion of calls can not be guaranteed in cases of interconnection with another carrier (particularly international) where specifications may not align with those of Telstra. Extra charges apply for this supplementary feature
The Direct Indial option allows your customers to call your staff direct without the need to go through an . operator and is available in blocks of 100 numbers only. Configuration Setting The majority of Direct Indial services should be set to the default setting of point to point operation which is the standard setting for most PABXs. Only tick the “Yes” box if your equipment supplier specifically advises you that point to multipoint configuration is required
The majority of ISDN Individual Number services should be set to the default setting of point to multipoint operation which is the standard setting for most Routers, Terminal Adaptors & PC Cards. Most PABX and Telephone Systems have a setting of point to point operation. Only tick the “Yes” box if your equipment supplier specifically advises you that point to multipoint configuration.
If you have more than one ISDN 2 service it is possible to group the services so that incoming calls hunt across the available access lines to find a free line. This feature is called Line Hunt and is activated on incoming calls made to a Group Directory Number.
