The internet is now common place in both the work place and homes alike. It is used for communications as well as for finding out information about many things. The speed and reliability of the internet is a factor people are always trying to improve upon, a T1 line is able to achieve this.
Normal internet is delivered along a copper cable into a place of business or home, this cables are connected to a server which is generally connected to the rest of the web via fibre optic cables. The use of copper cables for the final leg of the journey can slow the internet down; this is where a faster connection can be had.
T1 connections use a fibre optic cable to connect the internet to a specific location rather than by copper cable. The bandwidth is hugely increased in doing this and increases the overall speed of the internet. A regular broadband connection for example will receive data at about 700 kilobits a second, a T1 connection will receive data at a rate of about 1.54 megabits a second.
Another advantage of using a connection like this is that a lot of users can use the internet of one connection without it slowing down. If more than four or five people use a normal connection the bandwidth is used up and a bottleneck occurs slowing the data transfer rate. This is avoided on a T1 because of the higher bandwidth.
Phone calls can also be carried down a T1, a normal line sends analogue signals down the copper wire and it gets converted to a digital signal by a phone company. With a circuit like this the signal is digitized at the source, this means that the quality of the call is far higher and makes it easier for multiple phone lines to be used at once.
A T1 line is a way of providing quick and reliable internet via a fibre optic line. It stops the formation of data bottlenecks and can result in improved productivity due to work being able to be completed faster. For home users the line can provided quicker downloads and allows for web pages to load much faster.
