T1 Line For Enhanced Business Telecommunications

A dedicated T1 line is made up from a fibre optic or copper cable that operates as a telecommunications carrier that was first designed by Bell Labs for AT&T. The T prefix was adopted to signify the lines affiliation with the company that designed it. Originally this carrier was created to service North America, Japan and South Korea. It is also sometimes referred to as a DS0 or digital signal telecommunications carrier.

Early carriers were made from bundles of copper cables that were used to transfer data and voice. To improve service delivery and reliability, the switch has been made to fibre optic cabling, which essentially consists of fine glass fibre cables spun together to create a cable able of transmitting vast amounts of data.

Each carrier consists of a set of twenty-four separate channels, each consisting of 8-bits per channel. Each channel can handle up to sixty four bits of information per second. As the circuit itself is designed to upload and download information, or basically send and receive information, it is referred to as a full duplex circuit. It is capable of operating at a rate of 1.544 megabits.

It is possible to simultaneously engage all twenty four channels at one time, allowing for a megabit delivery of 1.534 megabits every second. Every second, the system will sample each 8-bit channel eight thousand times. This is a phenomenal rate when compared with other circuits. Its reliability and T1 speed are responsible for the drop in price of this initially expensive installation.

The carrier can very easily be used as a standard telephone service and is suitable to companies with an excess of eight dedicated telephone lines that need managing. The telephone service can easily be combined with a stable, high-speed Internet connection. Medium sized companies prefer to use this line as it is affordable, with low charges on the line and a high-speed rate of data delivery.

Companies can use several means of connecting their line. Use a router and an Ethernet cable, opt for fibre optics, connect wirelessly or use telephone line or a standard modem. A modem delivers data using an analogue signal, which is much slower than a digital one. By making the switch to digital you can improve your capacity to sixty times the data per second.

This type of carrier is also able to accommodate multiple users when compared to the original modems. Now over one hundred users can connect via one carrier, making it highly efficient and cost effective for companies. Operating at standard rates, 192,000 bytes can be transferred per second. It is highly sought after due to the fact that it is a very stable means of accessing digital information.

Your new T1 line provides users with 24 DS0 8-bit channels. When selecting a reliable service provider, the savvy shopper should check with different companies to see what sort of packages are available. Internet access can be capped, allowing the transfer of a specific amount of data and voice packages before being disconnected for the month. Alternatively, uncapped connections are available at varying rates.
