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.
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.
Channelized T1 vs ISDN PRI
T1 lines can support two protocols of switched circuit telephony.
Channelized T1 lines offer 24 phone lines using in-band signaling.
ISDN PRI, or Primary Rate Interface, offers 23 phone lines and
common channel signaling that can include data such as ANI Automatic
Number Identification or Caller ID.
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.
Advantages of Managed IP Services
Managed IP is a WAN or Wide Area Network service that is provided
and managed by a competitive carrier that owns and operates its
own IP network. A managed IP provider ensures that you have the
bandwidth and connectivity you need, without having to manage
the WAN yourself.
