Analog Phone Lines
Digital/PRI Phone Lines
Digital/PRI lines are high tech. The binary pulse they transmit knows what it should be when it reaches its destination so it can correct any errors that happened while being sent. This results in clarity of sound and virtually no distortions. Furthermore, much more data can be crammed into a digital than an analog signal: the maximum speed is 1.544 Megabits per second instead of 56 kilobits – an improvement of almost 30 times!
Digital lines require the installation of an expensive T1/PRI, a “pipe.” However, as numerous lines, up to 23, can be run through the same pipe, digital/PRI lines become less comparatively costly the more lines you have; it’s generally less pricey to have a PRI with 15 lines or more than a 15+ analog multiline. Thus, digital phone lines are generally used by larger corporate systems (often 25+ employees) while homes and small businesses find analog lines more cost-effective.
SIP Phone Lines
SIP trunking has been used by large enterprises for more than a decade and the increase of cheap bandwidth and quality hardware means that many SIP trunks in Canada rival the reliability of the PSTN network. Additionally, with SIP trunks, you’re not restricted by your own area code. Though your company may be based in Vancouver, if you do a lot of business with Torontonians, you can pick a Toronto area code so that your calls to and from Toronto will be local with no long- distance charges.
