T1 Service for Intrastate
Point to Point Dedicated Line Connections
By: John Shepler
In-state point to point dedicated connectivity
service is now available for banks, credit unions, hospitals,
retailers, manufacturers, publishers, and any business with multiple
locations or branch offices in the same state. What's more, the
pricing is VERY attractive.
What is T1 Point to Point Service?
T1 PTP or point to point is a dedicate private line that runs
directly between two locations with no other branch connections
attached. That means you have a high speed digital line for voice,
data or converged voice and data completely dedicated to your
business application. There is no sharing the line with other
users. That means you get all of the bandwidth all of the time,
and there are fewer security concerns since you dictate who has
access to the content on that circuit. Compare that to sending
VoIP telephone or highly sensitive data over the public Internet.
What is Different About This Service?
Point to point voice and data lines have long been available
to corporations that transmit electronic data between corporate
headquarters and offices in other states. In-state and even Intralata
(nearby areas that are not considered local service) service
for T1 voice and data lines has been more limited in coverage.
Now it is possible to get high reliability dedicated digital
lines between most locations and nearly everywhere in some states.
Plus, these circuits are available with very attractive flat
Who Benefits From In-State T1 Point
to Point Service?
Clearly, any business that has a central office and branch offices
within the same state and wants the security of direct point
to point T1 level service will find this new service attractive.
Typical users are banks with one or more in-state branches, credit
unions, and hospitals / medical centers. Manufacturers with satellite
plants or nearby suppliers or customers that need to be tightly
linked, retailers with multiple outlets or off-site warehouses,
and newspapers with remote printing facilities may also find
this service perfect for their needs. T1 data lines offer 1.5
Megabits per second of data transfer. That's enough to support
PBX or VoIP telephone needs plus manufacturing, engineering,
inventory, sales & financial data, or medical records transfer.
Additional T1 lines may be procured if you need more bandwidth.
Is T1 Point to Point Service Available
Beyond State Borders?
Absolutely. You can get a dedicated T1 installed between your
offices in New York City and Los Angeles or any points in-between.
In fact, point to point dedicated lines are one type of high
speed data service available worldwide.
