Fortunately, the CyberSpace card is probably the easiest product for your telephone company to deal with. It requires a bare minimum of services and tolerates more complex configurations that you might need for other ISDN equipment. You don't need to program the CyberSpace series or know anything about your ISDN line. All you need to know is your SPID number that the phone company assigns, which looks a lot like your phone number with a few extra digits before or after it.
Depending on which regional phone company is serving you, you will probably find that your choice of line configurations is an issue of economics. We recommend that you get as many features as your budget allows. You can always add more features later as you need them. A list of compatible feature-sets follows at the end of this section. For those who just want ISDN to work and don't care about the details, use the template below.
Pacific Bell has extensively tested the CyberSpace cards and has come up with a template for their engineers to use in programming ISDN lines for the CyberSpace products. Other telephone companies may also find this information helpful. We are reprinting that table for the convenience of your telephone company service representative. Bell Atlantic has line information on file and only needs to know that you have a CyberSpace Card.
