Connectivity to the Internet using fiber-optics has revolutionized the efficiency at which your company can operate.
The legacy copper cabling just doesn't cut it in modern business and slowly, the ILECs are retiring the copper network. With fiber-optic Internet, you have the flexibility to increase to 100 Gb speeds over a more reliable network. This impressive feat has businesses rushing to upgrade, but there's one question everyone has: How much does it cost to install fiber that can be used to get connected to the Internet?
While there are many variables that can affect the cost, with a bit of knowledge, anyone can gain an understanding of the price tag for their own upgrade.
If you’ve just gotten used to the idea of running your business voice communications over a data (IP) connection, you may have heard that companies are now going for a full, unified suite of cloud communication tools.
If your plain old telephones (PoTs) just aren’t cutting it, your phone company declared bankruptcy, or you’re looking for an upgrade, you’re probably wondering about the difference between VoIP and UCaaS, and how they stack up.
Virtualization remains one of the hottest trends in business IT. Gartner reports that many businesses have over 75% of server workloads virtualized. Whether your organization has already invested heavily in the cloud or is considering a first-time migration, it can be critical to consider the role of a hypervisor in your overall experience.
A fiber-optic Internet installation can offer numerous benefits to business IT pros and landlords. Due to the relative newness of this technology, you may be wondering if the benefits outweigh the cost or cons. While fiber-optic Internet connectivity is a much newer technology than broadband Internet on copper cable, many businesses have found significantly higher returns on their investment in fiber.
Voice-over-IP (VoIP) telephony can feel like a sea of acronyms. For many business administrators who are hoping to achieve lower costs on business communications, it can be difficult to make sense of all the options available. Without a technical background in VoIP, it's hard to make sense of things like SIP Trunking and a PBX, and the relative pros and cons of all options available.
If you're looking for a replacement for your business phone system or just starting a business and looking at what phone system to purchase, you're probably swimming in what may seem like a sea of acronyms. But, it all really boils down to two choices... Primary Rate Interface (PRI) phone systems (traditional telephony), and voice-over-IP (VoIP) phone systems delivered over Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).
