Analog Business Lines
Business lines provide two way access to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and are the same type of phone lines you would find in your home. Our MTS Allstream business lines are available from coast to coast and are perfect for your main lines, backup, or for connecting to a fax or POS terminal.
Digital Business Lines
In areas where cable is available, we can now provide digital business lines using Shaw’s extensive cable network. Operating in the same manor as analog business lines, digital lines are delivered over coax cable. The same cable modem that delivers your Internet connection will also deliver the phone lines. This means it’s only 1 cable running into your office which is fully compatible with your existing phones, PBX, or Key system.
ISDN PRI Service (Full or Partial)
PRI service provides up to 23 call paths or channels on one circuit and is delivered over T1 or Fiber. The benefits of PRI are that you select the number of call paths you need, and can have literally unlimited phone numbers connected to it. Unlike business lines where 10 lines all have 10 numbers, a PRI can have 10 channels, but 50 numbers if you wish. Your phone system then directs those numbers to specific employees or extensions in your organization, meaning each employee can have their own direct line. PRI is scalable meaning you can easily add more channels when required. For businesses with more than 20, or more than 15 phone lines, a PRI is a more cost effective solution.
Similar to a PRI, SIP Trunking delivers voice calls to your phone system either over the Internet, or over your existing MPLS network. Because there’s no hardware required, the cost can be up to half the price of a PRI all while providing the same features and benefits.
