phonesA digital phone system uses digital electronics. Since the 1960s, a digital core network has almost entirely replaced the old analog system and much of the access network has also been digitized. Digital telephony was introduced to provide voice services at lower cost, but was then found to be of great value to new network services, such as ISDN that could use digital facilities to transfer voice and data speedily over copper telephone lines.

Integrated services on your digital phone system refer to ISDN’s ability to deliver at minimum two simultaneous connections, in any combination of data, voice, video and fax over a single line. Multiple devices can be attached to the line, and used as needed. That means an ISDN line can take care of most people’s complete communications needs at a much higher transmission rate, without forcing the purchase of multiple analog phone lines. It also refers to Integrated Switching and Transmission in that telephone switching and carrier wave transmission are integrated rather than separate as in earlier technology.

In a videoconference, ISDN provides simultaneous voice, video, and text transmission between individual desktop videoconferencing systems and group (room) videoconferencing systems. It is important that you use a digital phone system that is suitable for your particular business.

Take advantage of the management features and devices of a digital phone system. A time saving feature is to block unwanted phone calls by using ‘Anonymous Call Rejection’ services and devices to keep callers with their own blocked information from calling you. Most blocked incoming calls are from people you may not wish to speak with — like telemarketers! When you use a caller ID block feature on your business phones, it is legal unless you are actually soliciting or telemarketing your business. Blocking your own caller ID information can help keep your contact information off telemarketing lists.

This is especially important if you make frequent calls to get quotes, collect pricing information, or make over-the-phone purchase. When you use Caller ID, you know who is calling you, so it is easier to make decisions about whether or not you have time to take the call. It is a great way to screen personal calls, telemarketing calls, and even callers you just do not want to talk to.
