Tele-Communication (Telecom) Terms Glossary and Dictionary
Redialer is an interface hardware device that interconnects between a fax device and a Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). A redialer forwards a dialed number to another destination. Redialers contain a database of referral telephone numbers. When the user dials a specific number, the redialer collects the dialed digits and matches them to a listing in its database. If there is a match, the redialer dials the referral number (transparent to the user) and forwards the call to the referral number.
