ISDN terminal adapter

A device that adapts a computer to a digital ISDN line. Like a modem, it plugs into the serial port of the computer or into an expansion slot. Some terminal adapters use the parallel port for higher speed. The adapter may also include a regular data or fax/modem and switch automatically between analog and digital depending on the type of call.
