Analogue is usually associated with the way electrical signals carry voice in traditional phone systems.
The backbone of business telephony is changing
A cost-effective and practical solution for many everyday needs.
Proven reliability at very competitive rates.
In analogue processes, audio signals (voice) are turned into electronic pulses for transmission. At the end of the transmission the signal is converted back to its original form – and your conversation takes place.
Analogue lines are gradually being replaced
Originally associated with the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network), analogue lines were once the backbone of global phone systems. While many lines are going digital, analogue is still in use, particularly for final connections between businesses and local exchanges.
Increasingly insufficient for today’s needs
More informally, analogue PSTN lines are known as POTS (Plain Old Telephone System). Outdated though it may be, analogue is proven, inexpensive technology that’s served business well for years. Unfortunately, analogue signals, though richer-sounding than digi-counterparts, have limited data capacity – they’re often insufficient for today’s data-hungry business comms.
Analogue telephony adapters
Analogue telephone adapters) (ATAs) may be used where analogue phones connect with non-analogue networks. Increasingly, however, underlying infrastructures are being updated so organisations can benefit from non-analogue telephony.
