Wiring for voice & data should mean that youâ€™re looking for a single, cost-effective solution. Structured cabling with CAT5e is considered almost mandatory as it gives the end-users the ability to move staff around their premises, not requiring the intervention of the voice & data specialists.
Products combining voice & data are also to be found in the marketplace, but few companies will run the risk of having all their eggs in one basket, unless they have their own in-house IT team that can resolve voice & data issues quickly.Â voice__data.pdf
Saying that the resilience of modern electronic manufacture and design make the likelihood of catastrophic failure of both voice & data elements concurrently unlikely.
So do you integrate voice & data?Â You do so every day when you use VoIP (voice-over-the-internet). Because voice is now digitised in nearly all phone platforms, it can be transmitted together with data across your LAN.Â However, with Layer 3 switches voice packets are prioritised over data so that clear, intelligible speech is possible.Â Remember early SKYPE?Â Many conversations were very difficult to understand when you happened to find a route without quality of service (QOS) built into all the nodes of the world wide web.
