Always having those annoying technological problems with your phone system or internet? Technology should be a joy. With the Internet we have the sum of all human knowledge at our fingertips. It's a sadly common experience then that many people's relationship with the digital sphere is one of frustration and annoyance. Data cabling equipment and services can give you back that sense of wonder.
The Internet is no longer the wonder it once was. People have grown used to having the sum of human knowledge at their fingertips. They used to call the Internet the "Information Superhighway" back in the day; when really it was more of a slow lane clogged with message boards and Star Trek fans. As broadband has become increasingly prevelant, however, the speed has begun to pick up. Fibre optic cabling is taking the place of the old copper wires. With its faster connection speeds and greater carrying capacity, it is the fast lane. Fibre optics data cabling is actually glass thread. It improves your network cabling system by carrying information at higher speeds and with reduced data loss. Fibre optic cables come in two different types to suit your internet needs, single mode and multi mode. A multi mode cable can transmit data up to lengths of 300m at 1000 mega bites per second and single mode cables can be used when even larger distances are needed!
Half the problems come about due to ignorance; people don't know what type of cabling they should be buying when they set up their Internet connections. The CAT5 and CAT5e offer up to 350m and that's more than enough for most of us. Heavier users, however, might need to look at the CAT6 or CAT7, which provide up to 550m and 1000m respectively).
Most people will opt for BT when setting up a new phone linebecause they are the most familiar. It's understandable; there are enough headaches when you are moving house or office and the fewer you make for yourself the better. However, did you know there are dozens of service providers all with offers, such as free installation, free call outs and often even cheaper rates? The types of phone systems businesses can choose from include the simple analogue/PSTN, a simple phone or fax line designed for receiving just one call at a time, ISDN2 - similar to the basic analogue line, only this can receive two calls as opposed to one. Alternatively there is the option of the ISDN30; often used for slightly larger businesses this system has a minimum of 8 channels and a maximum of 30. And there are just as many handsets out there to choose from. For instance, the new Toshiba Strata CIX40 is perfect for smaller or start up companies, featuring a state of the art voice mail system, with 360 mailboxes and 40 hours worth of storage, allowing businesses to present a highly professional image towards their clients, no matter what their size.
