  26. 26. DSL(Digital Subscriber Line) Compatible – The Stick connects just like your phone in a DSL scenario. The DSL filter is installed between the DSL service connection and the line jack on The Stick. Analog devices (phones, FAX, Dialup modems) connect to ports on The Stick.

This is particularly useful when the dial-up modem connects to devices deemed critical and security is a top priority. All other ports on The Stick have the Security Access Code feature as well.
  30. 30. Call Transfer – A variety of transfer options are offered. These are especially useful because they enable special handling of incoming calls during “after-hours” conditions. </li></li></ul><li>Application – Point of Sale<br />Multi-Link Inc.<br />PSTN Network<br />BEFORE<br />POS<br />DIAL-UP <br />MODEM<br />FAX<br />(555) 555.0001<br />(555) 555.0003<br />(555) 555.0004<br />(555) 555.0002<br />The Stick – How it works<br />The Stick automatically answers inbound calls and ‘screens’ for Fax Tones (CNG) and/or Security Access Codes (DTMF). <br />While performing the screening function for both types of tones, a high quality simulated ‘ring back’ is generated to the calling party.
