What is a Voice PRI Line?

A Primary Rate Interface (PRI) line is an Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) line (which is a standard telecommunication phone line), enabling voice, data, and video to be transmitted across a traditional telephone line.

PRI circuits have two pairs of copper lines, terminating on a modem spanning from the service provider to the caller’s business.

A Voice PRI line can process 23 calls, whether incoming or outgoing, simultaneously. PRIs are end-to-end digital circuits providing comparably higher voice quality than analog trunk lines.

PRI Line Benefits

2. Direct Inward Dialing (DID) facilitates external calls to be directly forwarded on to employees without an operator or receptionist.

3. Transparent, smooth transfer of external phone calls to outside numbers.

4. Call Display, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, Three-way calling plus many more additional features are all included at no extra charge.

5. A PRI line accommodates voice connectivity, video conferencing, data transfer, faxes and more.
