One of the more difficult problems to overcome when preparing for the CCNA 2.0 exam is the lack of an official exam blueprint. This White Paper will attempt to cover all material likely to be on the exam based on several sources including the exam blueprint for version 1.0 of the exam, Leigh Ann Chisholm's CertificationZone "CCNA V2.0 Exam Objectives" White Paper, and some material from the old ACRC course objectives. An important question to ask yourself is "Why do I need to learn this material?" The obvious answer is to pass the test, but the not so obvious answer is that learning ISDN well will give you a very important foundation for further progress in your internetworking knowledge and career. It's worth remembering that ATM, ISDN, and Frame Relay were all developed as part of the same standards process, a process that followed and drew from the OSI model development. As a result of your ISDN studies, you should be able to answer any test questions about ISDN, PPP, and DDR. You should come away with a deeper understanding of the networking puzzle in general and just how the ISDN piece fits in. With these thoughts in mind, let's get started.


Where do we start our ISDN knowledge quest? As you might expect, the ancient answer is "at the beginning" of course! What exactly is ISDN? ISDN stands for Integrated Services Digital Network and was developed as a digital solution to carry data, voice, and video traffic over a circuit-switched connection using the existing PSTN infrastructure. Some good questions to ask are "what do we mean by circuit-switched?" and "how is this different from packet-switched?" Circuit switching uses a dedicated physical circuit path between the sender and the receiver for the duration of the "call." You have been using circuit switching for years with your phone at home. Just like your telephone, when you use ISDN, you "place a call." Packet switching, on the other hand, does not require calls to be set up and torn down. With packet switching, various nodes share bandwidth with each other by sending packets.

ISDN is commonly used in the home and small office market for Internet access, telecommuting, and for backing up dedicated WAN circuits such as frame relay or T-1 circuits. ISDN comes with three different types of channels, although only the first two are commonly seen. The three types of channels are as follows:

B Channel64 Kbps
D Channel16 Kbps (BRI) or 64 Kbps (PRI)
H0 Channel384 Kbps (PRI Only)

A single D channel is used for control and signaling information to set up and tear down B and H channels, although a D channel can also support user data transmission under certain circumstances. B channels are used for end user voice, video, and data traffic. H channels are only used by PRI interfaces for high bandwidth services such as videoconferencing and are equivalent to 6 B channels. You should also note that a single D channel can carry signaling for multiple B channels at the same time, allowing end users a full 64 Kbps clear channel unlike the overhead associated with ATM. These channels are combined to form Basic Rate Interface (BRI) and Primary Rate Interface (PRI) circuits.

BRI2 B Channels + 1 16 Kbps D Channel
PRI (US & Japan)23 B Channels + 1 64 Kbps D Channel
PRI (Europe & Australia)30 B Channels + 1 64 Kbps D Channel

The BRI Physical Layer specification is International Telecommunication Union Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) (formerly the Consultative Committee for International Telegraph and Telephone [CCITT]) I.430. The PRI Physical Layer specification is ITU-T I.431. ISDN Primary Rate Interface (PRI) service offers 23 B channels and one D channel in North America and Japan, yielding a total bit rate of 1.544 Mbps (the PRI D channel runs at 64 Kbps). ISDN PRI in Europe, Australia, and other parts of the world provides 30 B channels plus one 64 Kbps D channel and a total interface rate of 2.048 Mbps.


Although work began on ISDN in the 1960s, the first set of standards was not published until 1984 by the CCITT. Subsequently, the CCITT became the International Telecommunications Union Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T). The ITU-T maintains the standards today and divides them into several different protocol series.


The E series of ISDN standards recommends telephone network standards such as E.163 (the International Telephone Numbering Plan) and E.164 (International ISDN Addressing).


The I series of ISDN standards deals with concepts, terminology, and general methods. Examples of I series protocols include I.100 (General ISDN concepts, structures, and terminology), I.200 (Service aspects of ISDN), I.300 (Network aspects of ISDN), and I.400 (User to Network Interfaces (UNI)).


The Q series of ISDN standards covers switching and signaling operation. Examples of Q series protocols include Q.921, and Q.931. Q.921 describes the LAPD ISDN data link processes, while Q.931 describes the OSI Layer 3 functions of ISDN.

Reference Points and Functions

The ISDN architecture was developed after the basic OSI model work was completed and supplements it. ISDN architecture reflects the strong service provider orientation of its designers, with greater initial emphasis on management and control.

Functional Model

In contrast to OSI, the ISDN reference models define not just protocols and services, but functional groups that define sets of common capabilities, and reference points that define the interactions of different kinds of functional groups.

ISDN components include terminal equipment, terminal adapters, and terminating equipment. ISDN terminal equipment comes in two types, TE1 and TE2. Equipment that meets the ISDN standard, such as ISDN terminals and ISDN phones, are known as terminal equipment type 1 (TE1) equipment. Equipment that does not meet ISDN standards is referred to as terminal equipment type 2 (TE2). TE1s use a four-wire, twisted-pair digital link to connect to the ISDN network. TE2s connect to the ISDN network through a terminal adapter or TA. An ISDN TA can be either a standalone device or a daughter card inside the TE2. If the TE2 is implemented as a standalone device, it connects to the TA via a standard physical-layer interface such as EIA/TIA-232-C (formerly RS-232-C), V.24, or V.35.

After the TE1 and TE2 devices, the next connection point in the ISDN network is the network termination type 1 (NT1) or network termination type 2 (NT2) device. In the US, the NT1 is a customer premises equipment (CPE) device. In most other parts of the world, the NT1 is part of the network provided by the carrier. The NT2 is typically found in digital private branch exchanges (PBXs). An NT1/2 device can also be found as a single device that combines the functions of an NT1 and an NT2.

Figure 1.

ISDN specifies a number of reference points that define logical interfaces between functional groupings, such as Terminal Adapters (TAs) and NT1s. ISDN reference points include the following as seen in Figure 1:

R - The reference point between a TE2 device and a TA.

S - The reference point between the CPE and the NT2.

T - The reference point between the NT1 and NT2 devices. (Note: When no NT2 device is used, as is normally the case for BRIs, the CPE-to-carrier interface is called the S/T interface).

U - The reference point between NT1 devices and line-termination equipment in the carrier network. (Note: The U reference point is relevant only in North America, where the carrier network does not provide the NT1 function.)
