  • In contrast to traditional wiring, data cabling is designed to be faster and more efficient, which allows your business to operate at a higher rate of speed.

CARRIER SERVICES FAQS

How do you tell if the phone line is analog or digital?

  • Look at the back of the telephone connected to it. If you see “complies with part 68FCC Rules” and a Ringer Equivalence Number (REN), then the phone and the line are analog.
  • Also, look at the phone’s dialpad.  Are there multiple function keys?
  • Do you need to dial “9″ for an outside line? These are indicators that the phone and the line are digital.

If you’re thinking of connecting your phone, modem, or fax machine to your office’s digital phone system, DON’T!

  • Though digital lines carry lower voltages than analog lines, they still pose a threat to your analog equipment!
  • At the very least, your equipment may not function properly.
  • In the worst case, you could zap your communications tools into oblivion.

What are digital lines?

  • The newer of the two, digital technology breaks your voice signal into binary code—a series of 1s and 0s—transfers it to the other end where another device (phone or modem) takes all the numbers and reassembles them into the original signal.
  • The beauty of digital is that it knows what it should be when it reaches the end of the transmission. That way, it can correct any errors that may have occurred in the data transfer.What does all that mean to you?
  • Clarity!  In most cases, you’ll get distortion-free conversations.
  • You’ll get more, too.  The nature of digital technology allows it to cram lots of those 1s and 0s together into the same space an analog signal uses.
  • Like your button-rich phone at work, that means more features can be crammed into the digital signal.
