Using the ISDN Connection Installing the optional PCSA-MCG80 HD MCU software in one Visual Communication System allows you to connect to multiple systems up to four by using the optional PCSA-B384S or PCSA-B768S ISDN Unit. The illustration shows an example using the PCSA-B768S ISDN Unit.
To connect with a normal phone When you are using an ISDN connection, a normal phone can be connected at up to three points. Only the 1B (64K) connection is available for a normal phone. Notes • When using the ISDN connection, installing the PCSA-MCG80 HD MCU software in two or more Communication Systems does not allow cascade connection.
Note The connection example described above includes two terminals via a LAN connection and one terminal via an ISDN connection. A system consisting of one terminal via a LAN connection and two terminals via an ISDN connection is also possible.
