Bandwidth typically refers to the maximum throughput for a given connection. Typically measured in Mbit/s (megabits per second) or Gbit/s (gigabit per second). We offer up to 1000 Mbit/s or 1 Gbit/s connections to the Internet.
Ehternet is the most widely installed Local Area Network (LAN) technology. It is specified in an international standard, IEE 802.3. Ethernet offers a simplified way to connect your business; BGMU handles the technical details of security and connectivity.
It’s not your Grandma’s Christmas tree! Optical fibers are about the size of a human hair and use light to transmit and receive signals. Very high data rates are possible over long distances with less loss than copper cabling. Fiber optics is very liable and scalable. We are the only “All-Fiber” network in B.G.
Gbps stands for billions of bits per second and is a measure of bandwidth on a digital data transmission medium such as optical fiber. With slower media (usually traditional copper wires) and protocols, bandwidth may be in the Mbps (millions of bits or megabits per second) or the Kbps (thousands of bits or kilobits per second) range.
Private Branch Exchange or “phone switch system” is typically located onsite and routes call, provides voicemail, etc. We offer a system that is hosted using Voice Over IP phones to decrease the amount of equipment you need onsite while keeping the features you need for your business.
LAN stands for local area network and is a group of computers and associated devices that share a common communications line within a small geographic area (office building). A LAN may serve as few as two or three users or as many as thousands of users.
Mbps stands for millions of bits per second or megabits per second. It is a measure of bandwidth (the total information flow over a given time) on a telecommunications medium. Depending on the medium and the transmission method, bandwidth is also sometimes measured in the Kbps (thousands of bits per second) range or the Gbps (billions of bits per second) range. As reference, a traditional modem produces between 28.8 and 56 Kbps or 28,000 to 56,000 bits per second.
Megabit / Gigabit
A unit of measurement typically referring to data transfer rates of computer networks. It is most commonly referred to when comparing download speeds.
NOC (Network Operations Center
This is where we monitor and manage the city wide fiber network as well as take trouble calls from customers all right here in B.G.
Stands for Plain Old Telephone Service and is an analog signal that is provided to the customer with a tradition copper connection. This service is typically used for Fax, alarm systems and customers that just want a plain old telephone line.
Primary Rate Interface is used for medium to large enterprises with a digital PBX system allowing a higher number of lines or channels needed for increased call volume.
Routers reside at your home or business all the way to Tier 1 Internet providers throughout the world. They do what they say,
route data from one point to another.
A network switch allows multiple devices to be connected together to send, receive and process data to a single destination device, such as another switch or router.
WAP (Wireless Access Point)
Allows Wi-Fi devices to be connected to a wired network.
