days. The existing phone line can simply be changed over to ISDN at a specified
point in time. Since ISDN uses existing telephone cables, the telephone company

convert the two-wire signals for the four-wire ISDN S

basic functions, however – establishing and terminating connections – are usually
quite sufficient for data communications. Consult your ISDN service provider for
