It provides packet switched connection for data and circuit switched connection for voice.

ISDN provides two types of channels. They are: B channel and D channel. B channel is also known as bearer channel which provides a speed of 64 kbps. Whereas D channel, which is also known as Data channel provides the speed of 16 kbps. ISDN has two interfaces, defined on these two channels. They are: Basic Rate Interface and Primary Rate Interface.

BRI or Basic Rate Interface gives a data speed of 128 kbps on normal telephone wires which are made up of copper. This speed is obtained by using two B channel wires and one D channel.

PRI or Primary Rate Interface gives a data speed of 1544 kbps. It uses 23 B channels and only one D channel.

PRI-ISDN is very common in United States of America. BRI-ISDN is commonly used in Australia and Europe. They use 30 B channels and one D channel to provide a data speed of 2048 kbps.
