A device used in an ISDN network to connect a single user to the outside world. Also see ISDN
A protocol converter used to allow a non-ISDN terminal (TE2) to access the network using ISDN protocols and procedures.
A device that terminates an ISDN or Switch 56 line that can dial and answer calls on the Public Switched Network (PSTN). Sometimes called a dialer. Short form is TA. Some
Converts some other form of communication to ISDN to allow non-ISDN devices to work with ISDN.
"TA" for short. A TA is used to connect various devices to the DSU which leads to the original provider of an ISDN line. Devices that cannot be directly attached to an ISDN line, namely analog telephones, fax machines, PCs and modems are first connected to the TA before they access the ISDN line. Telephones, fax machines and modems are attached using standard telephone line (modular) cables. (Modems need to be attached to PCs via serial cables, too.) TAs and PCs are directly linked via RS-232C or USB. To access the Internet via the TA, you need to call or "dial up" the access point number (telephone number for ISDN services) you have configured. To end the session, you need to manually disconnect the line just like when you were using an analog line via a modem.
A device that connects a computer to an ISDN channel. Used instead of a modem, it is either an external unit or a plug-in adapter card.
In ISDN, a device that connnects ISDN BRI to an existing interface.
ISDN equipment that adapts non-ISDN equipment to access an ISDN network.
This is the digital modem you'll need to sustain an ISDN hookup to an ISP. Terminal adaptors are expensive, but most ISDN providers will lease you one at a reasonable price.
a physical device which isconnected to a non-ISDN terminal to permit access to ISDN
a physical piece of equipment in which the ISDN line is terminated
A device that allows analog voice and data devices to work through an ISDN connection. The terminal adapter is a protocol converter that adapts equipment not designed for ISDN, such as phones, faxes, and modems.
(TA) is an ISDN device to manage dialing and answering the call (using the D-channel) and convert the bit-serial data on the B-channels to and from a form suitable for management by the conferencing software.
(TA) (n.) An ISDN-compatible device that converts non-ISDN transmission to ISDN transmission. See also terminal equipment.
A device allowing data to be sent over an ISDN line, much like a conventional modem does over a telephone line.
A protocol converter that adapts a non- ISDN piece of terminal equipment (such as a codec) to the ISDN network with respect to physical connection, signaling, and speed. A terminal adapter has an S/T interface, but may be wedded to an NT1 (in North America), providing a U interface in a single piece of hardware.
A Terminal Adapter is to an ISDN line what a modem is to a normal analog telephone line. It is a "modem" device which connects a client computer to an ISDN circuit.
A device that enables you to connect a non-ISDN terminal to an ISDN line.
A terminal adapter adapts a non-ISDN piece of terminal equipment (such as a PC) to the ISDN network. A terminal adapter has an S/T interface, but may be wedded to an NT-1 providing a U-interface in a single piece of hardware.
is a hardware interface between a computer and an Integrated Services Digital Network line. It's what replaces a modem when you are using an ISDN connection. Unlike "plain old telephone service," which carries signal in analog (voice) form between your computer and the telephone company's office, ISDN carries signals in digital form so there is no need to modulate and demodulate between analog and digital signals. The terminal adapter is what you have to feed data directly into so that the data can be fed directly into the ISDN line in digital form.
Allows data to be transmitted over an ISDN line, much like a modem allows data to be sent over a normal phone line.
A device that allows a computer (typically) to access an ISDN network. Analogous to a modem on a POTS network.
An electronic device that interfaces a PC with a host computer via an ISDN phone line. They are often called "ISDN modems"; however, because they are digital, Terminal Adapters are not modems at all. See Also: Modem
Protocol converter that adapts PCs, workstations and other equipment to the world of ISDN. Some ISDN devices include built-in terminal adapters. In technical terms, a terminal adapter is an interfacing device employed at the â€œRâ€ reference point in an ISDN environment that allows connection of a non-ISDN terminal at the physical layer to communicate with an ISDN network. Typically, this adapter will support standard RJ-11 telephone connection plugs for voice and RS-232C, V.35 and RS-449 interfaces for data.
In ISDN terminology, a terminal adapter or TA is a device that connects a terminal (computer) to the ISDN network.
