The ISDN Basic Rate Interface (or BRI) is a standard connection you would have in any home or small business, offering two simultaneous connections (any mix of fax, voice and data). When used as a data connection, ISDN BRI can offer two independent data channels of 64kbps each, or 128kbps when combined into one connection. These channels, known as "bearer" or "B" channels, are at the heart of the flexibility of ISDN.

Some of the advantages of ISDN include:

  • Dialup is fast. ISDN calls typically dial and connect in 1 to 3 seconds.
  • It's digital. 64kbps bandwidth for each "B" channel is guaranteed.
  • It's multi-mode. A "B" channel can carry data, voice, fax or video.
  • It concentrates calls: A BRI delivers 2 calls through one cable.
  • 64kbps or 128kbps Internet connection, with 1-3 second dialup
  • Send/Receive fax: Group 3 and Group 4 (64kbps digital)
  • Concurrent Internet access and phone/fax use
  • Telephony with multiple phone numbers
  • Point-to-point video conferencing
