There are 3 technologies on which we make our calls: analog, digital and IP voice. They can interact with each other when we make a call. Why? All networks are combined to make it possible. Therefore, before moving forward we explain each one of them:
* Analog: They allow only one communication per active line; one call at a time (1 channel) and operate with geographic numbering or direct dialing (DDI) service most used in the residential market.
* Digital: 2 simultaneous calls (2 channels) can be made; Each with DDI. That is why it is usually configured in switchboards to use a number as the main one and jump to other numbers if it is busy.
