4 Advantages of Managed Ethernet Switches

4 Advantages of Managed Ethernet Switches
Managed ethernet switches provide the ability to manage diagnostics and monitor network performance.

The main difference between a managed and unmanaged ethernet switch is that managed ethernet switches provide more control. As a network grows and becomes more complex, it will require more capabilities to manage it effectively. To offer a simpler explanation, managed ethernet switches are also known as intelligent switches. With that in perspective, you already have some great incentive to investigate further into the benefits of utilizing a managed ethernet switch. Read on to learn more about some of the advantages of managed ethernet switches.  

Better Management and Troubleshooting

Managed ethernet switches provide the ability to manage diagnostics and monitor network performance. Without these capabilities, it becomes incredibly difficult to control the network. These abilities also aid with troubleshooting, especially for industrial applications. With fiber small form-factor pluggable (SFP) monitoring, automatic warnings can be sent to your email or log system.

Optimized Network Traffic

With the ability to inspect and survey traffic flow comes the power to better control and optimize it. Managed switches provide access to information regarding data being transmitted to and from each port. With that knowledge, you can create a system of grouping for your devices. This type of grouping, otherwise known as Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP), directs the ethernet switch to “listen” network multicasts, delivering the traffic to available ports.

Virtual Local Area Networks

Managed switches provide the ability to create and program Virtual Local Area Networks, otherwise known as VLANs. Regardless of the physical location, multiple VLANs can be managed with a single connection. To simplify network management, Tag VLANs are assigned to specific ports with all users being members of the same VLAN.

Security Access

Managed ethernet switches do a great job at controlling the communication that flows through a network. It breaks it down by only allowing necessary communication to flow through, and only when it’s needed. By limiting access to trusted devices only, you can prevent users from creating unauthorized sub-networks.

Why You Should Invest In A PBX Phone System

December 21st, 2018
Why You Should Invest In A PBX Phone System
How much do you know about pbx systems?

As your business grows, your staff and responsibilities will grow as well. Your phone system should grow with you. In order to keep your business running efficiently, even as doing business gets complicated, you should consider updating your phone system. A private branch exchange, or PBX, phone system can help ease communication and business operations for your company by linking every aspect of your business. These computerized communication systems are easy to maintain, affordable, and have a variety of benefits and features that can help your business. Here are just a few reasons why you should invest in a PBX phone system.

Maximize Control

By using a PBX phone system, you centralize the communications for your company. Instead of a long list of contact information for everyone at your company, you will have a single point of contact through which communications can be filtered and easily managed. Plus, the system prevents multiple calls from blocking one another, allowing you to conduct business better, with fewer headaches–and no phone tag.

Improve Internal Communications

When you call another number within your company, even within the same office building, it will be routed outside and back to the other phone, possibly incurring charges and adding unnecessary steps to your internal communications. With a PBX system, the call never needs to leave your internal communications system. This results in fewer errors and more cost-effective communication within your company.

Web Integration

Modern PBX systems can even circumvent traditional telephone systems on the whole. When you utilize web integration with your PBX system, you can run your calls over the Internet using VoIP, or “voice over Internet Protocol.” This can help you avoid telephone bill costs and integrate your communications into a simple, cloud-based system.

Minimal Maintenance

When you use a cloud-based system for your communications, you won’t need to worry about new equipment. This makes the update to PBX phone systems a simple and user-friendly upgrade. Plus, over the long run, this will eliminate many maintenance and equipment repair costs associated with a traditional phone system.

Easy Automation

PBX phone systems allow for easy automation through the use of an automated attendant. Rather than a receptionist, your calls will be routed through an automated menu. In order to keep your automated routing uncomplicated and user-friendly, be sure to include the option to bypass long instructions by entering an extension.

3 Benefits of Cloud Phone Systems

December 14th, 2018
What You Need to Know About Cloud Phone Systems
A cloud-based phone system may be the right choice for your business!

Each type of phone system has its own set of features. Depending on the needs and scope of your business, one may better serve your purposes than another. When it comes to cloud phone systems, there’s a large list of advantages that many business owners are currently using. Here are three benefits of cloud phone systems.  

The Savings

Did you know that Cloud-based phone systems can lead to savings of up to 40% for local calls and up to 90% for international calls. For a majority of businesses, especially small businesses, those numbers alone are a great incentive to choose cloud phone systems. Depending on the size and scope of your business, there are some unlimited packages available that are even more economical, especially if a large part of your business model requires a lot of telephone communication.  

The Reliability

When it comes to communication, it’s important that businesses remain reliable for their business partners and customers. With that in mind, cloud phone systems offer unrivaled reliability. That’s because the bulk of the components used for the system are not located onsite, or even in the same location. It’s called “geographic redundancy,” and it helps prevent having to deal with a total failure due to the breakdown of any one component.   

The Flexibility  

Business doesn’t operate the way it used to. Now, it’s more mobile than ever, and that mobility requires a phone system that can support key players being in various locations at any given time. As long as you have access to a working internet connection, you will be able to connect to a cloud phone system. Many use apps that allow their users to access all the benefits of the service from any device.
