Getting An Analog Conference Phone

How can an analog conference phone improve the office?  Staying connected is big business these days with most people owning a Smartphone, laptop, or an internet ready tablet.  A large percentage of people now work in a home setting or telecommute, spending a short amount of time in the office and the majority of time in a home office or on the road.  Appropriate devices are necessary to keep people connected and working effectively, whether at home or in an office.

How does this technology differ from the newer digital version?  Analog technologies are relatively old, especially when compared to modern digital.  However, there is a lot to be said for older technologies that have been tried and tested to perfection.  Not only do such devices cost less, the quality of the sound is richer than the digital counterparts, which offer improved clarity.

While the two formats may work together, there are special adapters necessary that will convert one signal into the other and vice versa.  The older of the formats transmits a crystal clear sound using electronic pulses, while the newer digital formats transmit the signal after it has been turned into binary.  One system has difficulty accepting the others format without some assistance provided by an adapter, but it is possible to use both types together with the proper equipment.

Which of the technologies are most cost effective for a small or medium office?  Many small and medium businesses choose an analog conference phone over the digital counterpart because it is ideal for getting the job done while easily staying within the budget.
