What exactly is Fiber Optic Technology?

Fiber optic technology is the future of communications. When we talk about “fiber”, envision it as plastic smaller than a human hair or strand of glass in which data can be transmitted through light waves. Each individual stand of fiber is capable of transferring thousands of phone calls and emails simultaneously. Bundle them together into a fiber cable and that capacity skyrockets into the millions. Considering the traditional copper cables found in most homes and businesses are only capable of providing a fraction of this bandwidth, it’s not hard to see why everyone is insisting on fiber.

Does My Business Need a Static IP?

Posted by Allison on Dec 14, 2018 11:33:09 AM

Have you heard the term Static IP and wondered if you need one for your business? While it might seem complex, there are many advantages to consider. Let us break it down for you.

What is an IP address?

The Internet is made up of computers exchanging information with each other using a common language known as the Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP). In order for computers or devices to communicate with each other and send information back and forth, they need IP addresses. Internet Protocol (IP) addresses are unique 32 bit numbers which are assigned to each computer on a network. To understand what a Static IP is, you first have to understand what an IP address does and why it’s important. Similar to that of your home address, IP addresses are unique addresses that let other systems know how to find you. If your computer is hosting a web server, its IP address is what identifies it to the rest of the Internet.
