Can you tell what common telecommunications acronyms stand for? Today, you'll learn what a PRI is!
Hi! I’m Henry! The huge number of acronyms out there makes it hard to remember and understand them all. Here’s an acronym that’s important to know: PRI.
What is PRI?
PRI is short for Primary Rate Interface. PRI is also known as a Megalink. What we call PRI is a single wire that carries 24 concurrent, separate conversations or data streams. We can think of PRI as a giant pipe cut up 24 different ways so that it can support 24 different conversations that happen at the same time.
As you’ve probably guessed, you would start thinking of switching to a service that uses PRI when your company grows from being a small business to a mid- or large business.
