1.  Digital technology gives extremely reliable operation and the technology is almost infinitely expandable without causing backward compatibility problems (analog systems are inherently more restrictive).

2. Digital systems make wiring simple and easy to install.

3.  Digital systems encode information sent from the command station to the decoder as numbers grouped into packets, new types of packets can be added to a digital system to send more information thus extending the existing system without causing backward compatibility problems.
