Appear more professional and improve your business' phone lines by switching to ISDN. It's easy!
Originally analogue phone lines were the only option for the entire telephone network; this meant that there were no complications for a small business having to choose the most beneficial type of phone line for their company. As technology has developed, different options for phone lines have arisen and all of them offer different features to support your business. ISDN (the Integrated Services Digital Network) phone lines are a much more professional choice of telephone line, in comparison with basic analogue lines.
Switching your analogue phone line over to ISDN phone lines with DuoCall is a simple and hassle-free task that gives you access to competitive rates with the highest level of customer support in the industry! Designed by our business for your business.
So what are ISDN phone lines?
ISDN phone lines combine the benefits of analogue and digital data together over the same network. This means that data in the form of voice, images, text, and video can all be carried over the same network.
ISDN phone lines also provide a single interface for all of your communication devices including your phone, your video-phone, your fax machine and your computer etc.
What options are available when switching to ISDN?
ISDN2 | ISDN2e
ISDN2 (ISDN2e if we’re being pedantic!) is the preferred telephone line for businesses that require between two and eight voice connections in the UK.
Each ISDN2 circuit provides two speech channels, so if your business needs four simultaneous speech paths, you need two ISDN lines (circuits). If you require six simultaneous speech paths, then you will need three ISDN lines etc.
If you’re a larger business and you need between eight and thirty voice connections simultaneously, then ISDN30 is the best option for your company.
ISDN30 is supplied on a circuit bearer which offers a minimum of 8 channels (voice lines) and a maximum of 30 channels. If your business needs more than 30 voice lines then you would require two ISDN30 circuit bearers.
What are the benefits of switching to ISDN?
2. Call diversion
3. Switching is easy
1. DDI (Direct Dial Inward) numbers
DDI numbers allow your business to associate additional numbers with your main number for your ISDN circuit. This means that each telephone extension can have an individual number; your business will be able to allocate numbers for different handset users and for different groups or departments etc. You can even allocate DDI numbers for marketing purposes and use one of our Inbound Numbers to highlight the number.
DuoCall’s DDI numbers are available in groups of ten.
2. Call diversion
Connecting your ISDN2 phone lines to your phone system will allow you to divert calls to external numbers seamlessly. When a call comes into the office on channel one, it can then rerouted out of the office to an external number on channel two; it couldn’t be easier!
Call diversions will enable you to stay connected to your external staff with ease as well as giving your business the opportunity to reroute incoming calls externally when the office is empty.
3. Switching to ISDN phone lines is easy!
Switching phone lines can be very daunting for a business. Small companies can’t afford to take the risk of experiencing hold-ups during the process of changing from one phone line to another.
