KansasNet ISDN Access

ISDN stands for "Integrated Services Digital Networks". ISDN is basically the telephone network turned all-digital end-to-end, using existing switches and wiring (for the most part) upgraded so that the basic "call" is a 64 kbps end-to-end channel. Equipment known as a Terminal Adapter (TA) can be used to adapt these channels to existing terminal equipment standards. This equipment is typically packaged in a similar fashion to modems, either as standalone units or as interface cards (NICs) that plug into a computer. Terminal Adapters do not inter-operate with the modem; they replace the modem.

An ISDN phone line is capable of 64kbps, however depending on location, ISDN connections to KansasNet may be either 56kbps or 64kbps.  Regular ISDN dial-up access to KansasNet is the same price as the "Surfer" account in the dial-up area.  ISDN connections can be made using one or two channels (lines).  Using two ISDN channels lets the end-user achieve a 128k connection to our network (or 112kbps in areas where only 56kbps/channel ISDN access is allowed).  When using dual-channel ISDN, the cost of access to KansasNet is increased two-fold.  (2-channel ISDN dial-up is two times the cost of a "Surfer" dial-up account).

ISDN lines are provided by your local telephone company.  You will need to contact your telco to check on ISDN channel availability.

There are other costs associated with this service.  First, the end-user needs to have an ISDN “modem.”  A basic Terminal Adapter (modem) is can cost between $50 - $250 and can be purchased from a computer sales center.  Second, the phone company needs to install the ISDN lines at the user's location.  ISDN lines are provided by your local telephone company.  You will need to contact your telco to check on ISDN channel availability.

KansasNet can also provide dedicated ISDN access.  This means that the ISDN channels  and computer are connected online 24/7 with no interruption.  For $175/month per channel, we can provide dedicated dial-up ISDN access in most areas where we provide service.
