With fiber optic internet becoming widely available to the public at very reasonable prices, small to medium businesses started taking advantage of this high speed internet service. How are they doing this? The short answer is telecommunications. One of the biggest expense areas for businesses is telephone lines. Phone bill costs can quickly build up each month, without even realizing it. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), allows you to make phone calls using an internet connection rather than a traditional phone line that uses wires. With the current situation worldwide, this is definitely an area to explore to save on business expenses. In a previous blog we looked at “How fiber can benefit your business“.
Five core benefits fiber can provide your communication systems are: Distance, electromagnetic compatibility, speed, secure communications and costs.
Distance: Fiber cables can carry data signals much more efficient compared to copper wires, with degradation rates as little as 3% over distances of 100m, where as copper wire looses around 94% signal. With VoIP calls, you can make phone calls to anyone in the world, without suffering expensive call charges.
Electromagnetic compatibility: Fiber cables use light pulses to transmit signals. These cables are non metallic which make them immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference, adding more reliability and stability to VoiP systems.
Speed: To get the full potential out of VoiP systems, you need a fast reliable internet connection. Fiber uses speed of light technology which makes it perfect for these systems.
Secure communications: Fiber is one of the most secure cables used for communication systems, as any attempt to cut into the glass wire core would break the connection. This makes it a good defense against cyber crime.
Costs: VoiP systems allow you to make calls to anywhere in the world, as long as there is an internet connection. This is also not limited to only voice calls; businesses are using video calls for conference meetings and online training sessions. All these services would have cost an arm and a leg without a fiber connection.
