Connecting a Remote Host
-The remote node will be connected to the WAN core via a BRI ISDN connection (2 B channels @ 64 Kbps + 1 D channel @16 Kbps = 144 Kbps).
-Data communication will take place via PPP encapsulation.
-Whenever the remote node user needs to connect to the district network, a connection will be made between the ISDN switch and the Greenway router.
Benefits of ISDN
ISDN can carry a variety of user traffic signals, including digital video, circuit-switched data, and telephone network services, while using the normal phone.
ISDN offers much faster call setup than modem connections.
ISDN provides a faster data transfer rate than modems by using the bearer channel (B channel of 64Kbps). With multiple B channels, ISDN offers users more bandwidth on WANs than some leased lines offer.
ISDN can provide a clear data path over which to negotiate PPP links.
ISDN provides great flexibility to the network designer because of its ability to use each of the B channels for separate voice and/or data applications.
