Sharing Business Broadband
Even smaller businesses can have high performance dedicated Internet
access by splitting the cost of a T1 line with other businesses
in their building or business park.
Bonding T1 Lines for Higher
While a standard T1 line provides 1.5 Mbps upload and download
bandwidth, lines can be bonded to create total bandwidths of 3
Mbps, 4.5 Mbps, 6 Mbps, 7.5 Mbps, 9 Mbps, 10.5 Mbps and 12 Mbps.
An advantage T1 lines have over fiber optic connections is that
they are available nearly everywhere without special construction.
What Are Pseudowires?
A pseudowire is a virtual "circuit" that emulates a
traditional digital telecom service but on a packet switched network.
MPLS networks are especially suitable for pseudowires. By using
a pseudowire circuit, you can get the point to point connectivity
you desire without having to re-engineer your facilities to accommodate
a different protocol network.
Virtual Private Networks Link
Many businesses now have more than one office location or need
to include other facilities such as warehouses and remote data
centers. A VPN or Virtual Private Network allows you to use dedicated
Internet connections as private network connections through data
encryption. A VPN solution is generally much less expensive than
extensive dedicated point to point circuits.
T-Carriers Offer Digital Telephony
T-Carriers, which include both T1 and T3 lines, offer digital
telephone trunking with multiple phone calls on a single physical
circuit. T1 lines can support up to 24 simultaneous phone calls.
T3 lines have 28 times the bandwidth of T1 lines and can offer
up to 672 simultaneous phone calls for large enterprise or call
