Ordering T1-PRI (Primary Rate ISDN) Service for Dialogic® Brooktrout® TR1034 Fax Board
When you order T1-PRI service from the telco or service provider, provide the following information:
||Dialogic Corporation (formerly: Brooktrout Technology)
||Dialogic® Brooktrout® TR1034+yxH-T1 Fax Board (where 'x' denotes the number of channels active on the card, ie: 4, 8, 16, 24 and "y" denotes for 'P' for PCI and 'E' for PCIe)
|Signal Protocol (or 'trunk type'):
||Common Channel Switching
||Extended Super Frame
||The switching device providing the PRI line to the Brooktrout TR1034 Fax Baord must act as NETWORK / Clock Master, or pass master clock signal seamlessly from PSTN. The Brooktrout TR1034 Fax Board(s) must act as TERMINAL end / User Side.
|Number of Channels:
||24 (23 "B" channels plus one "D" channel, commonly written "23B+D")
|B Channel Provisioning:
||Circuit-Switched Voice & Data
|B Channel Service:
||Voice; as fax is considered voice, the line would be configured as though voice calls were being placed over it.
|D Channel Service:
||Signaling only with the D-channel on channel 24 of the T1-PRI line.
||No packet handlers other than the D-channel.
||64Kbps clear channel service end-to-end for every call.
|Compatible Switch Types:
||Your telco or service provider needs to tell you the type of switch that is providing the PRI line to the Brooktrout TR1034 Fax Board; the list of supported switch types is: 4ESS, 5ESS, DMS100, DMS250, Ericsson MD -100(North America), Ericsson MD -110 (International), Siemens (North America), Japan
|Compatible Variant Types:
||Your telco or service provider needs to tell you the program variant programmed on the PRI line; the list of supported variant types is: AT&T Pub41449, National ISDN1, National ISDN2, NorthernTelcom NIS A211-1
|Called Party Number:
||This is what the ISDN world calls 'DID' or 'DNIS'. Normally the last 4 digits of the number dialed; required for inbound routing. Please confirm with your telco or service provider the number of CPN digits it will be providing to you on inbound calls.
NOTE:If the total number of digital channels on the Brooktrout TR1034 Fax Board(s) will not allow for all 23 B-channels to be utilized (for instance, if you are using a Brooktrout TR1034+P/E4, 8, or 16H-T1 Fax Board, where 'x' denotes number of activated channels on the board), you will need to tell to your telco or service provider which B-channels you will be using. Then, the telco or service provider will not direct traffic to B-channels that are not mapped to functioning Brooktrout TR1034 Fax Board channels. This is sometimes called a 'fractional PRI' or 'partial PRI ' line .
