So, Why Should YOU Want a T1 Line?

By: John Shepler

What's all the hub-bub about T1? Why should smaller businesses consider T1 voice and data service? Could I be paying too much for T1 services that I already have? You have good questions. At T1 Rex we can help.

What's T1?
Let's start at the beginning. T1 is the most popular in a family of high speed digital services originally invented for the Bell System. The "trunk carriers" were developed to pack two dozen phone calls on a single line connecting telephone company offices. Higher speed T3 and faster lines can carry hundreds of phone calls on coaxial copper and optical fiber cables.

It wasn't until the deregulation of the telephone industry in the mid-1980's that T1 became available for use by large companies for consolidating telephone lines and transferring massive amounts of computer data between office sites. High costs of these specialized lines and their associated equipment meant only large corporations had T1 lines.

Now It's T1 for Every Business
The technology boom of the 1990's brought us the spread of the Internet and new telephone technologies for smaller businesses. Internet service providers use T1 lines to connect the Internet to dial-in modem banks and wireless hotspots. Competitive businesses need T1 lines to support web servers and email servers. T1 also connects PBX phone systems and dedicated lines for Intranets and Virtual Private Networks. The costs of both the T1 lines and the routers and PBX systems that connect to them have dropped dramatically in price. Now, T1 Rex is able to offer a specialized search engine that helps you search for the best T1 line prices available for your location. This is the perfect time to consider T1 for your business communication needs.

Why is T1 Technology Right for Most Businesses?
T1 is supplied on two pairs of ordinary telephone wire, just like the telephone wires that plug into your telephone. The wires themselves are installed and maintained by local telephone companies. In fact, you probably already have the wires you need coming to your building. T1 can be provisioned just about anywhere you can run telephone wires. That means rural locations and less technically built-out areas can have T1 where other services, such as DSL, are not available. Compared to consumer grade Internet services, T1 is also highly reliable digital service. You can often get a service availability guarantee to ensure that your vital communications links will be up and running when you need them. T1 is proven, professional grade digital line service that won't let you down when you need it most.

What is T1 Used For?
The versatility of T1 is one of its strongest advantages. T1 is a digital service. It consists of 24 channels that are combined into a single data stream of 1.544 Mbps. All 24 channels can be used to supply a high speed Internet service. Or 23 telephone calls and data such as caller ID and signaling can be carried on a single T1 line. This is a common arrangement with PBX systems. You can also specify "Integrated" voice and data service, where half the channels are used for telephone calls and the other half are used for Internet service...on a single line.

Who is T1 Most Appropriate For?
Call centers, legal offices, insurance companies, medical facilities, universities, school districts, banks and credit unions, Internet service providers and companies with their own web and email servers or PBX systems are likely to find T1 service financially attractive. Even if you've never had T1 service before, recent price reductions could make T1 right for your business.

Do you spend more than $300 a month for your telephone and Internet services? Do you have 10 or more people in your office using at least 6 phone lines? Are you tired of "consumer grade" digital services that are giving you unreliable service? If so, T1 lines may be right for you. Many smaller business offices can now enjoy the cost savings and reliability of T1 service.

Note that many people living in rural areas inquire about the availability of T1 as a home broadband service. It's not really appropriate, both because of the cost that starts at around $300 a month and varies by location and because carriers will only install T1 and other business telecom services to companies with their own business addresses.

How About Ethernet?
Ethernet over Copper uses the same twisted pair copper lines but a new transmission technology to boost bandwidth. For about the same price as a T1 line, you can get 3 Mbps EoC service (2x the bandwidth). Ethernet over Fiber is an even better deal, with excellent pricing on bandwidths from 10 Mbps on up to 10 Gbps.
