Four-Port ISDN BRI Fax Board
for Universal PCI
(CPi/400BRI PCI)
® ®
The Intel Dialogic CPi/400BRI PCI four-port ISDN BRI
fax board was developed to meet the fax needs of
countries widely using Euro-ISDN as the preferred
communications network (e.g., Europe, Australia,
New Zealand, South Africa). This flexible, scalable
solution incorporates computer-based
fax into the ISDN environment, with a Universal PCI form
factor for maximum compatibility with the latest servers.
Digital interfaces ISDN BRI
Form factor Universal PCI long card, single-slot width

System density Four fax resources with two on-board ISDN BRI Interfaces

Maximum four boards per system
Bus compatibility Rev 2.1 of PCI Bus Specification
