PRI T1 Line Service
With so many choices regarding internet connections it is useful to understand some of the different types and how they can benefit you.Let’s take a look at a PRI T1 line as an option. PRI stands for Primary Rate Interface and it describes a business internet connection rather than one you would use in your home.
More correctly it is a multi-use carrier combining multiple voice and data carriers which enable businesses to take advantage of not only long distance and local voice services, but also video conferencing and fax services together with internet networking.
As far as upload speeds are concerned, T1 PRI offers speeds several times faster than ordinary DSL or cable.Admittedly the download speeds for DSL and cable are much faster than PRI T1, but businesses are primarily more interested in getting information onto the web rather than downloading it from the web.
The important actions online for a business are dealing with emails and updating websites, both of which benefit from higher upload speeds.Another compelling argument for a PRI T1 line is the added security that it brings. It is a dedicated connection which means that it remains exclusive to the subscriber.
PRI T1 typically provides 23 B-Channels, which carry data and voice signals and1 D-Channel which carries information used for signaling and control.A PRI T1 line is symmetrical, meaning that download and upload speeds are the same. Although they boast good upload speeds, they don’t compare too well with asymmetrical residential lines which offer much better download speeds.
However, for business the important thing is upload speeds. T1 PRI operates at 64 Kbits per second per channel and so you can see that combined this offers uploads of around 1.5Mb per second.
Apart from the obvious savings in time, T1 PRI could actually save money too. For instance, if you run an office that has ten telephone lines these can all be replaced by one PRI T1 line and still leave you with room to add more telephones to the system without any extra outlay.Whatever channels you have left over on your PRI T1 can be assigned to internet use or fax services.
In the final analysis, businesses can really benefit from a PRI T1 line by cutting down on the amount of telephone lines needed and by providing a speedy and secure connection offering better communication through voice and data services including, video conferencing, local and long distance voice services and fax and also excellent upload speeds for essential internet activities as website updates and email management. http://www.prit1.org
