Point to Point T1/DS1
Point to Point T1 lines/DS1 Lines do not provide T1/DS1 Internet access or telephone lines, but act as a transport for either or both. A point to point T1, often referred to as a "P2P", provides a very secure and reliable connection, usually from a corporate office to any number of satellite offices. Although a point to point does not actually "provide" Internet access or phone lines, corporations use point to point T1/DS1's to share these services.
For example, a company's home office in Los Angeles might have hundreds of telephone lines and huge Internet access pipes installed at one location to get the best available rates. This company can use a Point to Point T1/DS1 to transmit any combination of telephone lines, Internet access, and data between offices to share software systems, and provide in-office dialing from locations across the country! The variables are endless because there are no restrictions on how a point to point T1/DS1 can be used, assuming you have the right equipment and a source at one end of the point to point. This can be a great way to save money, because a satellite or branch office might have to pay huge prices to have telephone and bandwidth services installed directly, whereas the home office can get better rates because of bulk buying and location.
Although it can sometimes be used to save money, a point to point network is usually not very cost efficient compared to other options. Frame Relay and VPN (Virtual Private Network) are other options to consider depending on a company's needs and business applications. The primary advantage of a point to point line is that it is truly private, making it top choice for those demanding a circuit with a dedicated connection to only their business, therefore offering the highest security available.
There is no question that the same type of T1 Line/DS1 Line that was being used back in 1984 by the US Government and world leading technology companies like IBM is still the best source of reliable bandwidth for all sizes of companies today. Despite the competition of newer technologies, price reductions on T1/DS1's plus the fact that these circuits are so trustworthy have allowed the number of T1 Lines/DS1 Lines being used in the United States to continue to grow at a rate of 15% per year, even in recent years.
Since there are so many uses for the T1 Line/DS1 Line, including the explosion of new technologies like VoIP, these circuits are poised to remain a key ingredient to the success of businesses who rely on Internet, Telecommunications, and Data Connectivity for years to come.
