T1 Services & Solutions

Get optimal bandwidth.

About T1, DS3 & OCx:

T1s

  • Are still the only ubiquitously available technology – you can get a T1 anywhere you can get a phone line, unlike other technologies like Fiber and Ethernet that are available at only a fraction of office buildings
  • Come in increments of 1.5Mg (when used for data) or 24 simultaneous call paths (when used for voice) and can be bonded together – maxing out at 8 circuits. Offer high quality, symmetrical bandwidth, and clearly defined SLAs – they have been around for many years, so carriers are pretty good at installing, supporting, and managing these circuits
  • Vary in price by carrier depending on how a carrier is obtaining copper access to your building. Using reputable carriers, pricing will range between $150 and $600 per circuit based on location
  • Can be used to connect to the Internet, to provide phone service, or to connect two points (like several sites)

DS3

  • Equivalent to 28 T1s bonded together
  • Offered as full or fractional
  • Can be provisioned over copper, but typically over fiber
  • Can serve as a local loop for multiple services (PRIs, p2p connections, Internet access, etc.)

OCx

  • OC3 = 3 DS3s
  • OC12 = 12 DS3s
  • And so on – when you need a lot of capacity

How IQ Wired Can Help:

  • Help you select the right technology based on your needs and on what’s available in your building
  • Once technology selection is made, provide you with quotes on multiple carriers that are laid out in an easy-to-compare side-by-side format. Carriers know that we present multiple solutions so we have additional leverage to ask for best pricing and promos
  • Because wWe install 100s of new connections per month for our customers, we can give you insight on what to expect post-sale
  • Allow you to feel that you’ve fully shopped all options without needing to meet with multiple sales reps
  • This service doesn’t cost you anything because carriers pay us (like they pay their direct sales force)
  • There are many advantages to buying services through an agent. Find out more if you haven’t worked with one before
