Abstract

This article relates to a procedure which allows a customer to intall a remote communication controller comprising a base unit and an expansion unit which have been manufactured separately. It does not require a keyboard/display console. Presently, communication controllers exist which comprise a base unit which may be connected to a limited number of communication lines and an expansion unit which allows the number of communication lines to be increased. The communication controllers may be of two types: the local type which attaches to a host channel and the remote type which connects upstream to another controller through a communication line. The remote type is designed to be installed in an office environment by the customer himself.
