Stamford Telephone Company recommend that structured cabling is installed on premise. The Ethernet cable used for this part of the infrastructure should comply with at least the Category 5E standard. This will ensure high speed data transfer and high quality voice transmission.
PoE Switches and Routers
The benefit of using PoE switches is providing power to connected devices and remote management. This means that no external power supplies are required as phones and wireless access points can draw their power directly from the switch. The remote management eliminates the need for costly and time consuming site visits. Our routers provide Voice Quality of Service to ensure reliable calls and High Definition voice quality.
Our wireless (WiFi) networks provide secure and separate networks for both the business and it’s guests and visitors. WiFi routers are not a business grade product and specific access point devices are required. A pre-installation survey will identify what sources of interference exist and where best to place each access point for the most reliable coverage. We would recommend keeping guest and business networks separate.
Every piece of equipment The Stamford Telephone Company installs can be managed remotely. This allows us to fulfill our ongoing obligations to service your business quickly and simply. Remote management can prevent the majority of costly and time consuming site visits and issues can be resolved with minimal delay.
