Point to Point Circuit – Connects multiple locations and creates a private data network offering that offers higher security and end to end control than a network that traverses the public internet.

Businesses use point to point networks to create reliable and secure routes and to guarantee that networks are redundant. Other advantages for some companies and carriers include the possibilityPoint to Point circuits of lower overall cost for larger networks and the ability to forecast supply and availability in cases where capacity may be limited by the use of long-term supply agreements where carriers contract to provide the service over an extended period of time at a contracted price.

Advantages of point to point networks may include quality of service control and the ability to use the bandwidth for a variety of uses, as the circuits can be configured to carry any combination of video, internet, or voice traffic based upon customer demand between two or more points on the network using the same point to point connection. Whether the circuit is referred to as a point to point dedicated connection, private line, or leased line, a point to point circuit is sold as a data line with a range of capacity, usually sold as an Ethernet connection, a point to point T1, DS1 or point to point DS3. Outside of the US and in most wholesale and larger enterprise transactions buyers usually contract to purchase bandwidth by the gigabit, or as a point to point E1.

Point to Point Data Services

Point to Point T1 Service

  • Point to Point T1 Service is a private data connection securely connecting two or more locations with T1 data speeds (1.54 Mbps). A T1 point to point circuit is a closed network data transport service which does not traverse the public Internet and is inherently secure with no data encryption needed.
  • Ensures reliable, secure transport of high-volume communications between 2 locations
  • Aggregates point-to-point voice, data, and video traffic on a single dedicated, cost-effective circuit
  • Improves response time
  • Point to Point T1 services are available in higher bandwidth speeds such as point to point Ethernet or point to point DS3. A point to point DS3 is equal to 28 point to point T1s and generally considerably less expensive on a per circuit basis, if an application or project is forecasted to require more than a dozen or so T1 circuits. Consult with Cloud and Colocation about how to manage a point to point DS3 and make the best use of the 28 T1 circuits that make up a DS3 based upon your need for a combination of services that can include VOIP, various configurations of data circuits, including data circuits that provide internet services, and applications that require larger amounts of bandwidth such as video.
  • A point to point connection provides dedicated bandwidth, and as such, the quality of service (QoS) is predictable as it is not a shared service (a private line) and follows the same direct private network path every time. Point to Point T1 circuits are used by businesses to provide reliable, secure point to point T1 data service for applications including credit card processing, file sharing, data backup, point to point VOIP, and video conferencing. A T1 or DS3 point to point circuit can also be configured to carry voice, video, Internet, and data services together over the same point to point T1 connection. Point to Point T1 service is also known as a Point to Point DS1 or DS3, T1 or DS3 Private Line, T1 or DS3 Leased Line, or Data T1 or DS3.

Metro Ethernet Service is a private data connection securely connecting two or more locations in a metropolitan area with Ethernet data speeds. A metro Ethernet circuit is a closed network data transport service which does not traverse the public Internet and is inherently secure and unencrypted. Metro Ethernet services are available in a range of bandwidth options from 10 Mbps to 1,000 Gbps. A metro Ethernet private line connection provides unparalleled quality of service (QoS) as it is not a shared service and follows the same secure direct network path every time. Metro Ethernet circuits are used in applications secure including credit card processing, file sharing, data backup, Ethernet VOIP, and video conferencing. Any Ethernet circuit may be configured to carry voice, video, Internet, and data services together over the same Ethernet connection. Point to Point Metro Ethernet services are also known as Metro Ethernet Private Line or Metro Optical Ethernet.

DS3 Private Line Service

DS3 Private Line Service is a private data connection connecting two or more locations with DS3 data speeds (45 Mbps). A DS3 private line circuit is a closed network data transport service which isn’t carried over the public Internet. Private Line DS3 services are available in higher bandwidth speeds such as Ethernet Private Line or OC3 Private Line. DS3 private line service is not a shared service and follows the same direct private line network path every time. Private Line DS3 services can also be configured to carry voice, video, Internet, and data services together over the same DS3 private line network connection. Typically, a DS3 Private Line can be divided into 28 “smaller” circuits service by allocating 1.544 Mbps per circuit since equipment and carrier end loops are widely available to support either transmission speed. DS3 Circuits are sometimes referred to as a T3 Private Line, Point to Point DS3, DS3 Leased Line, or Data DS3 line.
