The Ambient HaM Data Fax modem device makes use of the ISDN or Integrated Services Digital Network standard for simultaneously transmitting data across conventional circuits of the switched public phone network. Before the advent of ISDN, the telephone system was utilized only for transmitting voice with other services also enabled for data. The main feature of the ISDN standard is that it efficiently incorporates both data and speech on the same phone lines, effectively adding functions that were not inherent in the traditional phone system. There are actually 3 types of interfaces for access to ISDN which are the B ISDN or Broadband ISDN, the PRI or Primary Rate Interface and the BRI or Basic Rate Interface. The ISDN standard utilized by the Ambient HaM Data Fax modem device is a phone network system that is considered to be circuit switched.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The ISDN communications standard is also capable of providing access to networks that are packet switched, developed to enable the digital transmission of data or voice over traditional phone copper wires which results in potentially enhanced voice quality that an analog telephone can offer. It is capable of offering connections that are circuit switched for either data or voice, or connections that are packet switched (applicable for data only) in increments of 64 kbps (kilobits per second). Another chief market application for the ISDN standard in many countries is access to the Internet. In this application, ISDN is generally capable of offering a maximum rate of 128 kbps (kilobits per second) in both the downstream and upstream directions. On the other hand, ISDN B channels may be bonded to attain a higher data rate – usually 4 or 3 BRIs (8 to 6 64 kilobits per second channels) can be bonded.
