Uses your PBX equipment

High Quality of Service

PRIs with 6 to 23 channels per trunk

PRIs help manage IT costs by leveraging your existing PBX system so there is no need to purchase additional equipment.

Primary rate interface (PRI) is a telephone service that allows multiple phone numbers to transverse a single, or multiple, T-1 or circuits. PRI provides a multiple number of channels based in the standards established by country or geographic location. In North America, PRI’s consist of 23 voice channels and 1 data channel to communicate between the carrier and the customer equipment.

Norstar’s ISDN PRI circuit is an all-digital business service, just one PRI circuit from Norstar provides your business with up to 23 individual 2-way channels for voice communication, and reliable communications that can be scaled on a per channel basis.

With our service, your enterprise will realize significant cost savings in communications while maintaining the value of the investment you have made in your legacy equipment.

PRI trunks work best in those locations where companies want to leverage the existing investment in their traditional PBX while benefiting from the managed costs, business continuity, and enhanced capabilities that IP-based telephone service can bring or when a business has a need for multiple telephone numbers but their usage does not warrant having an individual line for each number. PRI’s allow multiple numbers to come to a location without the high cost of carrying an individual line for each number.

One of the main reasons a business will deploy a PRI is when a business has a need for multiple telephone numbers and their usage does not warrant having an individual line for each number. PRI’s allow multiple numbers to come to a location without the high cost of carrying an individual line for each number.

PRIs help manage IT costs by leveraging your existing PBX system so there is no need to purchase additional equipment. A trunk is a dedicated connection that links the PBX to a phone service provider, which in turn links to the public switched telephone network (PSTN).
