- a terminating connection to an ISDN
connection. Provides a segment
of a PRI
or Primary Rate Interface
, allowing up to two B-channels
or "splinters" of 64Kbps Internet access
. So if you use both B-channels, you get 128Kbps
In Australia, Telstra offers a connection through an OnRamp 2 MTU (Media Termination Unit) to provide up to 128Kbps access through a single Cat5 cable into an Internet Router. Cheap and easy solution.
Problem: Telstra provide no feedback to their connections, no link lights, no connection status, and the phone lines do not provide a dial tone. So you cannot check it unless you phone their telephone support desk and know the line number.
