More flexible? Hm... I would be interested in hearing a detailed explanation for that.
Its simple: a TA or router allows you to do only that things, the TA or router was designed to let you do. A passive ISDN card allows you to do everything ISDN allows you to do.
Oh? So what does european ISDN offer that U.S. ISDN doesn't? So far, my TA allows me to use all of the features available from my Telco (and its a long list, I assure you). My engineering contact (who is reading this as I type it) informs me that from a "features" standpoint, european and U.S. ISDN systems are, in essence, identical...
Sidenote: there is an exception to what i just said. I know of one manu- facturer of ISDN routers who built a thing called "remote CAPI" into their routers, which allows you to access the ISDN by issuing CAPI messages over IP. If you want to know what CAPI is, look at www.capi.org. In case i were in the situation i was, when i started ISDN driver writing under FreeBSD, today, i would just buy such a device and done.
Hmmm... Interesting. I shall have to discuss this with my engineering contacts, though it sounds familiar. Actually, after browsing through the CAPI page, it looks like most of the things discussed are normally implemented as firmware (aka user-proof). Still, I will verify this before committing myself to any exact statement.
Hopefully - and the code is already there - i4b will run with the existing PPP code, although i don't see the need: bonding two B-channels together does not make much sense here.
Its too expensive (for me!) within the current pricing scheme over here, now forgive me that i don't explain our current pricing ... ;-)
I understand. I begin to wonder if the people responsible for creating the pricing schemes for my Telco are under the influence mind-altering drugs...
transfers. The costs of using ISDN for voice communications are bad enough without intentionally makeing it worse for myself.
And the strange thing happening here is, that ISDN (voice) communication is cheaper than analog voice communication since the beginning of this year :-)
I wish I could say the same. Though a single BRI is only slightly more expensive than a pair of analog lines--unless you go over the time limits. Then the additional taxes become painful, indeed. I have the misfortune to live in a state where there's no such thing as flat-rate ISDN (sigh).
The conditions under which it pays to use ISDN and/or to use features ISDN is able to provide are just _totally_ different in Europe and the US.
I'm not entirely sure I would agree with such a statement, but I'll take your word for it for now. Heh... Looks like I'll be pestering my friends at Alpha Telecom alot this next week (grin)...
