It is necessary to instruct the equipment to make an external call and the key to make this instruction is '9'

The only difference between the two is the number of channels/terminals that each can support. ISDN2 lines can support up to 8 channels whereas ISDN30 can support up to 30 channels, significantly more than ISDN2.
