Los Angeles, California is not only the
second largest city in the United States, but occupies a strategic
position on the West Coast, making it a logical point of presence
for just about all competitive telecom vendors. Los Angeles area
has long been known as the "Entertainment Capital of The
World," being home to major movie, televison production
and music recording companies. It was a birthplace of the Internet
in 1969, when the first ARPANET transmission was completed between
UCLA and Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, near San
The Los Angeles area hosts major corporations,
including Northrup Grumman aerospace, Boeing, DirecTV, The Walt
Disney Company, Hilton Hotels, ICANN, the Rand Corporation, to
name a few. Aerospace, shipping, entertainment, manufacturing,
petroleum, finance, telecommunications and healthcare are major
contributors to the areas and even the nation's economy.
This major business and technology presence
has lead to a telecommunications infrastructure buildup in the
Los Angeles area. Major network providers such as Level 3 Communications,
Qwest, XO communications, MegaPath, Paetec, TelePacific, Sprint
and AT&T have points of presence in Los Angeles to facilitate
nationwide and international long haul connections. Metro access
connections include OCx SONET fiber optic links, wavelength services,
Carrier Ethernet, MPLS networks, Frame Relay, ATM, Dedicated
Internet and point to point private lines.
The Reason T1 Prices Have Plummeted
in Los Angeles
The trickle-down effect of so much high speed bandwidth from
many competing carriers is that lower speed services such as
DS3 and T1 lines are no longer the exclusive and pricey options
affordable only by large businesses and educational facilities.
They T1 line you order today might cost as little as half what
it did a year or two ago.
Just in time, too. Downtown and suburban
Los Angeles and Orange County businesses of all sizes have a
growing need for digital connectivity. T1 lines are essential
for point of sale transactions, financial reporting, PBX phone
systems, voice and data convergence using VoIP, point to point
virtual networks, and dedicated Internet access.
Types of T1 Line Services Available
T1 lines come in different flavors. You can configure a T1 line
for local and/or long distance telephone service for a call center
or office phone system. ISDN PRI digital telephone trunking is
a T1 line service specialized for telephony. A dedicated Internet
T1 gives you highly reliable access suitable for email and Web
servers and broadband phone. Integrated T1 combines Internet
access with standard telephone service on one line. Private line
service offers secure connectivity between business locations
and makes an excellent access connection to MPLS cloud networks.
Another bonus of T1 line service is that
you can increase your bandwidth incrementally by bonding T1 lines
together to create multiples of 1.5 Mbps service. Start with
one T1 line and bond in more as your business grows.
How About Ethernet?
Carrier Ethernet directly competes with T1 and is available with both copper and fiber optic delivery. Bandwidths range from 2 or 3 Mbps on the low end up to 10 Gbps and beyond. Pricing per Mbps is more attractive than T1 lines.
