Wireline: Voice and Data
Voice and data services have been changing quickly in the last few years. Both services now have more options than ever before.
Traditionally, business voice services used to include only business lines, PRI service and T-1 service. A few companies offered an integrated T-1 for voice and data. Today, the number of voice options have expanded: Dynamic T-1 voice/data products, VoIP services, SIP (Session Initiated Protocol) voice service, hosted VoIP services, dedicated LD services and disaster recovery voice services are just a few.
In addition, if you have not reviewed your voice long distance contracts in the last 18 months, you are probably paying about 20 to 30% too much. The Top Speed Data team is trained to review your bills to see if there are better values for you. Call today to set an appointment. 866-998-3282, ext. 266 or e-mail Glenn@topspeeddata.com.
Data services have also come a long way. Frame relay and private line services used to be the primary services for a WAN (wide area data network) design, but in most cases the design of the future will be MPLS (Multi Protocol Labeled Switching) or VPN (Virtual Private Network) services.
Frame Relay had limited speeds and could incur additional costs verses today’s MPLS networks. MPLS offers many additional benefits that businesses need. “Any to any connectivity” allows businesses to establish disaster recovery plans that would have been very costly using frame relay or private lines in the past. MPLS also offers COS (class of service) qualities that allow businesses to identify which types of traffic should have the highest priority to get through the network. This is very important as a business upgrades their phone systems to VoIP.
MPLS also offers greater speed options and, generally, at 20% to 30% less than a traditional frame relay network.
If you are looking at a new network or just want to discuss what is right for you, call today to let Top Speed Communications review your current design to see if you have the most cost effective network. Call today to set an appointment. 866-998-3282 ext 266 or e-mail Glenn@topspeeddata.com.
