How Dynamic T-1 Can Save You Money
Dynamic T-1 is an integrated voice and data service that can provide your small business location with telephone and Internet on a single line
By: John Shepler
As a small but growing business, your needs have grown from a single analog phone line to multiple outside lines for local and perhaps long distance calling. You could just keep adding more lines, one at a time, but isn't there a better approach that could be more cost effective? You bet there is. It's called Dynamic T-1.
What is Dynamic T-1?
A dynamic T-1 line is pretty much what it sounds like. This is a T-1 service that adapts itself to your needs on a continuous basis. But how does it do that and why?
How T-1 Works
First of all, let's consider the traditional T-1 line. T-1 is a digital voice and data line service that can provide you with up to 24 telephone lines or 1.5 Mbps of broadband Internet access on a single line. It actually uses 2 pair of copper telephone wire, so it's a service that's available just about anywhere. Some T-1 lines are set up as private point to point connections between two business locations.
Dynamic T-1 Combines Telephone and Internet
Dynamic T-1 is a newer variation on the T-1 line that gives you both telephone and broadband Internet on the same line. This makes it an ideal choice for the smaller business that needs both telephone lines and Internet broadband. A larger business might need multiple T-1 lines to accommodate their many employees. But as a smaller business, you need something sized for your type of company and priced so that you can afford it.
The Magic Is In The IAD
The way dynamic T-1 service works is that the service provider installs a special piece of equipment often called an IAD or Integrated Access Device at your premises. The T-1 line goes in one side. Your connections for telephone and Internet come out the other side. There's an equivalent piece of equipment at the other end of the line so that the provider can feed both phone service and Internet service to you.
Dynamic vs Integrated T-1 Service
Dynamic T-1 is an advanced form of Integrated T-1 service. The term integrated means that both voice and data are integrated or combined into a single line service. But note that all integrated services are not dynamic. Earlier Integrated T-1 service allocated bandwidth for a given number of phone lines whether they were in use or not. Dynamic T-1 gives priority to phone calls, but re-assigns that bandwidth to speed up your broadband access when the phone is hung up.
