Sharing Business Broadband
Even smaller businesses can have high performance dedicated Internet
access by splitting the cost of a fiber optic Ethernet connection
with other businesses in their building or business park.
What does Convergence mean?
Convergence is the merging of voice, data and often video onto
a single network. Most often that network is a company LAN with
enough bandwidth to accommodate all users and QoS or Quality of
Service control to ensure high quality voice and video transmissions.
Where does a VPN make sense?
A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a security technique to allow
public networks, like the Internet, to be used for secure private
data transmission. Since Internet access is almost universally
available, using VPN software to encrypt data into private tunnels
is more cost effective than building a fully meshed network to
connect many locations.
What is QoS and how do you
QoS means Quality of Service. Most often you hear about QoS when
referring to converged networks that transport both packet voice
and data. QoS mechanisms may include prioritizing voice packets
over data because voice is much more affected by latency and jitter.
What is Ethernet over Fiber?
Ethernet over Fiber or EoF means transporting Ethernet protocol
signals over metro distance or long haul circuits, using IP protocol
networks. Your interface is a standard Ethernet jack from the
carrier supplied premesis equipment.
