Prior to fibre broadband being readily available we used to suggest having a dedicated broadband line for crucial services, for example Voice and Data. This would generally allow enough bandwidth to be supplied and ensure the quality of voice calls were not affected when large downloads were taking place on the Data side.
Today there is normally plenty of bandwidth to go around allowing for a single broadband connection to provide simultaneous services however, this creates another problem, what happens when there are lot’s of voice calls while large downloads are taking place at the same time?
The importance here is to tag the traffic, allocate some bandwidth and use a priority based routing. This way voice calls will be protected even when the connection is under extreme load. I would calculate your requirements and distribute bandwidth allocations accordingly.
My consultation includes connecting businesses with the very best of providers and equipment. It’s not all about spending lots of money. We are in business too and whilst we ensure everything we recommend is suitable for its purpose it has to be cost effective as part of the solution.
