Businesses face many technological challenges in today’s dynamic market place. One challenge is integrating voice and data communications into a cost- effective and workable format for their unique infrastructure. Taking existing equipment resources, remote locations, bandwidth requirements, and maintenance requirements all into account can be intimidating. But there are options so that voice and data convergence can be obtained within your business’ constraints.
One option that provides a cost conscious company an easy setup which preserves and supports legacy equipment is Voice and Data Convergence over IP. This is an easy to manage and low cost solution to integration needs. Unique TDMoIP technology preserves your investment in legacy equipment and maintains voice quality. There is no need for separate leased lines and T1 lines are transparent to protocols or signaling.
Another option is Voice and Data Convergence over Fiber. This option allows connection of four (4) T1 lines and Fast Ethernet that provides an efficient use of expensive infrastructure. You can connect remote locations within distances of 12-24 miles. A major advantage of the Fiber convergence option is an easy plug and play installation and effortless maintenance.
If Voice and Data Convergence over IP or Fiber is not suitable you may want to consider convergence over Fixed Wireless. This versatile plan offers point to point Fast Ethernet and multiple T1 extension over an unlicensed band. A bandwidth of 48mbps and a maximum distance of 50 miles combine voice and data over a single link for reduced access costs. This system makes it easy to switch channels and frequencies to ensure that you will always find clear spectrum. Fiber convergence is the perfect choice for wireless/cellular backhaul and public safety applications.
When considering options for your Voice and Data integration needs it is essential to consider how the system you choose impacts your legacy equipment and remote location requirements. Today’s technology offers a wide variety of solutions and it is best to investigate more than one option before deciding on a plan. Vendors can help you to optimize your resources and still get a system that will meet your needs. Determine your budget, system priorities, and existing equipment flexibility before consulting a vendor and then let your vendor match the Voice and Data Integration option to your requirements. The technological advances in the area have provided many exciting options for you to consider. With the right vendor you can have a system that is both cost-effective and versatile enough to handle existing requirements and all your future needs.
