Immediate Start Signaling
Immediate Start Signaling is the most basic of Start Dial Supervision. The originating side goes off-hook, waits for a finite period of time (200ms, for example), then sends the dial digits without regard to the far end. The Immediate Start Signaling method is less reliable than Wink Start. In Immediate Start, there is no wink from the end that receives the call to signify that that is ready to accept digits.
