T3 Line Bandwidth For High Speed Access For Digital Transmissions

By Stephen Jobs

T3 Line Service or DS3 connection as it is known is ideal for larger companies with high bandwidth demands. T3 is simply a word used by its inventor Bell Systems to describe a digital carrier line, a lot like a telephone line, that carries data, voice and video. When trying to make the decision between a T1 and a T3 line for your business, the main considerations are how much bandwidth you need and how much money you can spend on a T3 line.

When there is talk about T1 and T3 lines, you may also hear a lot about DS1, DS3 or a DS4. There are some minor differences between T lines and DS lines but essentially they are the same. A T1 line requires copper lines but T3 connections are put through fiber optics, making them easier and cheaper to install.

Fiber optics increase the carrying capacity dramatically for a T3 line that can deal with 45 megabits per second or 28 T1 lines. T3 and DS3 are often confused since T3 has always been thought as carrying voice traffic but it can handle simultaneously data and video traffic as well. An average T2 or T3 line can deal with 672 individual channels at any one time.

Like the T1 line, the T3 line can be modified to carry voice and data but it has an advantage over a T1 line: it can easily process a high demand application like video conferencing. T3 circuits can provide companies with 45 mbps of dedicated connectivity with the Internet. This is the perfect solution for users who have outstripped their T1 lines and are requiring higher capacity bandwidth.

If your company requires computer access for more than fifty users at a time or needs to run higher bandwidth applications like video conferencing, then your business should have a T3 connection. T3 lines are the most common carrier lines used by most medium sized commercial enterprises. A T3 is also a commercially viable option for those enterprises looking to resell bandwidth to their known customers. Depending on your location and T3 provider, a T3 line can cost between $3,000 and $12,000 a month.

Inn order to secure T3 line service, find a broker website that acts as an intermediary between customers and providers. This way you can get multiple free quotes from several providers and decide which one is the best for you. If your business is situated in a less populated state such as Montana rather than New York, the monthly costs of a T3 line may be several times higher than lines in urbanized areas. Plan ahead.

There may be other factors to consider when trying to decide which type of line is best for your business. You should determine if you need network connectivity or Internet access. Will it be for data and voice or video? T3 Line service can be expensive so each business must budget for what they can afford.

Get more information in real-time about how you can use T3 Internet service to expand your company fast and easy! When you utilize a T3 Voice Line system, your company will be able to function more efficiently without call disruptions.
