Today’s organizations require agility to adjust to changing business demands, and they are highly dependent on their Internet connection to do this.
A popular way for organizations to connect to the Internet has been via a T1-based dedicated Internet access (DIA) service. T1 services are typically offered over 1 or 2 T1 circuits so the bandwidth options are limited, inflexible and may be costly as an organization’s bandwidth and application requirements grow. To be competitive, you need to quickly and cost-effectively adapt your Internet access bandwidth. T1 services are challenged to meet these elastic bandwidth requirements.
Upgrading a T1 DIA service to a higher bandwidth may take days or even weeks
Metro Ethernet network solutions provide enterprises with powerful business tools that are simple, easy to manage, and cost-effective. Compared to legacy equipment from the telephone company, Ethernet gear can be cost effective, with greater functionality and a simple upgrade path to add more capacity. Additionally, IT personnel with special skills aren’t needed to manage Ethernet in the WAN because it is a familiar technology, which can lower overall maintenance and engineering costs. -- All of these things combine to give Ethernet a manageable “total cost of ownership” or TCO. However, while cost-effectiveness may spur buyers to pull the trigger on the technology, it’s what Ethernet services do for their business that makes them fans.
