Several telephones are usually interconnected to allow for several uses such as call handling and transferring, call metering, conference calling, private and shared voice messages and accounting in a telephone system. More than two telephones can be interconnected depending on the need for a home or a business. A business telephone system makes use of multiple lines for its telephone system as suited for the business. It is suitable for both large-scale exchanges for branches which are private as well as telephone systems for small keys. A business telephone system has its central office lines controlled at a key telephone system directly from several telephone stations. In establishing connections between the central office trunks and the stations, the key telephone does not need an attendant at the switchboard.
Using business telephone service is very beneficial for a business. Efficiency and cost-effective telecommunication is enhanced in business telephone services where cost per call is low mostly for the today’s internet driven society. Business telephone system enhances business mobility without limiting one due to their physical location. Conference calls ensuring face to face interactions with the clients as well as colleagues without incurring extra cost is enhanced by having a business telephone system in place.
In a home or a business, network cabling is also necessary to connect one network device to another one so that they are able to share scanners, printers or any other devices. Optical fiber cable, coaxial cable and twisted pair cables are some of the cables used in network cabling. The cables can be used depending on the characteristics of the network including topology, size, and physical layer. Twisted cables are mainly used for homes and business ethernet networks and they helps in cancelling out electromagnetic interference from the different wire pairs. Fiber optic cables are two types which include the short range multi-mode fibre and long range single mode fiber and both offer a higher bandwidth over a long distance. Coaxial cables are used for signals such as televisions with bandwidth of hundreds of megahertz to gigahertz and they are most suitable for confining electromagnetic wave inside the cable.
Organized network cabling is very beneficial for an organization. Flexibility and higher bandwidth are possible when using network cabling for a business. Network cabling is simple to use as it reduces the complexity as well as multiple infrastructures for wiring for the various devices and equipment used. Network cabling allows for continuous flow of information and is also cost effective. Network cabling is also very beneficial in reducing the risk of human error and mistakes that occur as a result of using multiple cabling system.
