What is Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)?

MPLS is a scalable, protocol-independent transport. In an MPLS network, data packets are assigned labels. Packet-forwarding decisions are made solely on the contents of this label, without the need to examine the packet itself. Service providers can use MPLS to improve quality of service (QoS) by defining LSPs that can meet specific service level agreements(SLAs) on traffic latency, jitter, packet loss and downtime.

What is Primary Rate Interface (PRI)?

The Primary Rate Interface (PRI) is a telecommunications interface standard used on an Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) for carrying multiple DS0 voice and data transmissions between the network and a user. PRI is the standard for providing telecommunication services to offices.

The Primary Rate Interface consists of 23 B-channels and one 64 Kpbs D-channel using a T-1 line.

What is SIP trunking (session initiation protocol)?

SIP trunking is a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and streaming media service based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) by which Internet telephony service providers (ITSPs) deliver telephone services and unified communications to customers equipped with SIP-based private branch exchange (IP-PBX) and Unified Communications. The Internet replaces the conventional telephone trunk, allowing an enterprise to communicate with fixed and mobile telephone subscribers worldwide.

What is PRI and SIP Trunking?

PRI and SIP Trunking are two different ways of connecting your business to the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network). Typically both methods, PRI and SIP Trunking, require a piece of an equipment in your office called a PBX (Private Branch Exchange). Most PBX and IP PBXs can support both PRI and SIP Trunking connections, either directly or with an adapter.

What is Fiber Optics?

Fiber optic (or "optical fiber") refers to the medium and the technology associated with the transmission of information as light impulses along a glass or plastic wire or fiber. Fiber optic wire carries much more information than conventional copper wire and is far less subject to electromagnetic interference. A fiber optic cable consists of a bundle of glass threads, each of which is capable of transmitting messages modulated onto light waves. Fiber optics has several advantages over traditional metal communications lines: Fiber optic cables have a much greater bandwidth than metal cables.

What Is a T1 Line?

A T1 line is a system maintained by a telephone company to connect multiple buildings together with a very fast network connection. Find out how T1 lines provide fast Internet connections with help from a software developer in this free video on Internet connections.

A T1 line can transmit 1.544 megabits per second, or can be used to transmit 24 digitized voice channels. Hence it can be used for phone service in a commercial building, for instance, or for data transfer on a network, providing service up to 60 times faster than a traditional modem. Businesses with more than 8 phone lines may save money by getting a dedicated T1 line to loop to the place of business from the local phone company office.

What is VOIP?

Voice over IP (VoIP) is a methodology and group of technologies for the delivery of voice communications and multimedia sessions over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, such as the Internet. Other terms commonly associated withVoIP are IP telephony, Internet telephony, broadband telephony, and broadband phone service.

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), is a technology that allows you to make voice calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line. Some VoIP services may only allow you to call other people using the same service, but others may allow you to call anyone who has a telephone number - including local, long distance, mobile, and international numbers. Also, while some VoIP services only work over your computer or a special VoIP phone, other services allow you to use a traditional phone connected to a VoIP adapter.
