  • Page 228: Glossary

    Glossary BONDING* BONDING is one of the Inverse Multiplexing methods allowing connection of the videoconferencing system using multiple ISDN lines. Dialing the first ISDN line only enables you to connect all other lines. Dialing the second and later lines is automatically done by the communication between the videoconferencing systems on both sites.
