Combined T1 Telephone and Internet
An Integrated T1 line shares bandwidth between digital phone lines
and broadband Internet service. Typically up to 12 phones lines
can be accommodated. If the T1 line is set up to be a dynamic
T1, then any bandwidth not used for telephone calls is automatically
available for Internet access.
Advantage of Colocation Bandwidth
Colocation is locating your servers in a colocation facility,
also known as a carrier hotel. Advantages of this approach include
ready availability of low cost bandwidth including T1, DS3, Carrier
Ethernet and SONET Fiber Optic options. These data centers also
offer backup power, environmental control and high levels of security.
WAN Bottlenecks Easily Unclogged
Your Wide Area Network or WAN may be the bottleneck in your network
when you have significant voice or data transfer between facilities.
With lower line prices available, unclogging the WAN can cost
less than you think and can unleash higher business productivity.
T1, T3 and Carrier Ethernet connections are ideal for the corporate
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.
How do T1 and DS1 differ?
In general conversation, T1 and DS1 refer to the same thing. But
strictly speaking, T1 refers to a physical line circuit consisting
of 2 pair of copper wires with strict line signal specifications.
DS1 stands for Digital Signal level 1. DS1 is the service level
you get on a T1 line. However, DS1 also is part of the digital
signal hierarchy used in T3 lines and SONET fiber optic carriers.
