A leased line is a dedicated, fixed-bandwidth data connection that is rented by an Internet Service Provider (ISP) directly to a business. It is a point-to-point connection, meaning it connects two specific locations, such as a business office and the ISP’s data center. Leased lines are symmetrical and uncontended, which means they offer the same upload and download speeds and are not shared with other users, ensuring consistent and reliable performance.

What are the advantages of Business Leased Lines?

  1. High-Speed Connectivity: Business Leased Lines provide businesses with high symmetric speeds, offering faster uploads and downloads compared to standard broadband connections. This ensures efficient data transfer, smooth communication, and improved productivity.

  2. Reliability: Leased lines are highly reliable, offering businesses a dedicated and exclusive connection. Since the line is not shared with other users, businesses experience minimal network congestion and enjoy consistent performance, even during peak usage periods.

  3. Flexibility: Leased lines are flexible and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of a business. Businesses can choose the desired bandwidth that suits their requirements and easily upgrade their connection speed as their needs evolve.

  4. Enhanced Customer Support: When businesses opt for leased lines, they typically receive strong customer support and setup assistance from the ISP. This includes 24/7 support from expert technicians who can quickly address any issues that may arise.

What are the disadvantages of leased lines?

  1. Installation Time: Setting up and installing a leased line can take longer compared to other types of connections. The line may require physical installation and configuration, which can result in longer lead times before the connection becomes active.

  2. Higher Costs: Leased lines can be more expensive than alternative services such as standard broadband. The dedicated nature of the connection and the level of service provided contribute to the higher costs associated with leased lines.

How fast is a leased line connection?

Leased line speeds can vary based on the requirements of the business. They typically start from around 10Mbps (megabits per second) and can scale up to 10Gbps (gigabits per second) or even higher, depending on the infrastructure and service availability in the specific location. It is advisable to consult with the ISP to determine the appropriate speed for your business needs.

How we can help your business

The main difference between a leased line and broadband is the dedicated and uncontended nature of the connection. A leased line offers a dedicated, exclusive connection between the business premises and the ISP, ensuring consistent and reliable performance without being shared with other users. In contrast, broadband connections are shared among multiple users, which can lead to fluctuations in speed and performance during peak usage times.

Can I increase my leased line speeds in the future?

Yes, it is possible to increase the speed of a leased line connection in the future, provided there is available capacity on the bearer line. Businesses can discuss their requirements with the ISP, and if there is available bandwidth, the ISP can arrange for an upgrade to increase the speed of the leased line connection.

    A leased line is a dedicated, fixed-bandwidth data connection rented by an Internet Service Provider (ISP) directly to a business. It provides a dedicated and exclusive connection between the business premises and the ISP's data center, ensuring high-speed, reliable, and uncontended connectivity.

    Unlike standard broadband, a leased line offers a dedicated and uncontended connection exclusively for the business. It provides symmetrical speeds, meaning the upload and download speeds are the same, and is not shared with other users. This ensures consistent and reliable performance without the effects of network congestion.

    Leased lines offer several advantages for businesses, including high-speed connectivity, reliability, flexibility, and enhanced customer support. With leased lines, businesses can experience faster uploads and downloads, consistent performance, scalability to meet evolving needs, and access to dedicated technical support from experts.

    Leased line speeds can vary based on business requirements and the availability of infrastructure. They typically start from around 10Mbps and can scale up to 10Gbps or even higher, depending on the specific location and service availability. Businesses can consult with the Internet Service Provider to determine the appropriate speed for their needs.

    What are the potential limitations and challenges of having a point-to-point leased line, such as no Internet access, monitoring, and scalability issues?
    Having a point-to-point leased line may limit options for added services, such as Internet access or monitoring, and can present challenges in scaling the WAN due to the specialized nature of the connection.

    Why are most leased line providers suspicious when someone requests a point-to-point leased line?
    Leased line providers are inherently suspicious when someone requests a point-to-point leased line because of concerns regarding whether the requester fully understands the implications, such as the lack of Internet access, monitoring, and the scalability challenges associated with this type of connection.

    How does the involvement of leased line providers affect the addition of services like Internet access or SIP telephony?
    If the connection does not touch the provider's network, the leased line provider cannot add commonly requested services like Internet access or SIP telephony, leading to limitations in service offerings.

    What is the process of linking two locations together using leased line circuits?
    When linking two locations using leased line circuits, providers typically establish two circuits from each point to their nearest data center and connect the middle section using their core network, ensuring a high bandwidth ultra-resilient network.

    How do leased line connections impact the provision of common services and technologies?
    Leased line connections can impact the provision of common services and technologies as the connection may not touch the provider's network, preventing the addition of services like Internet access or SIP telephony.

     

    What kind of monitoring tools do organizations use to spot circuit downtime for themselves?
    Organizations use monitoring tools that enable them to spot circuit downtime for themselves, ensuring they can promptly address any issues that may arise.

    Which types of firms have full-time network engineers on staff?
    Firms that have full-time network engineers on staff include WAN network providers, ISPs, data centre providers, hosting companies, IP Telephony firms, and Investment Banks.

    What are the characteristics of organizations that typically order very high capacity links (1Gbps+) for their connections?
    Organizations that typically order very high capacity links (1Gbps+) for their connections are those that require very high bandwidth, such as WAN network providers, ISPs, data centre providers, hosting companies, IP Telephony firms, and Investment Banks.

    What are some types of organizations for which a point-to-point leased line connection may be appropriate?
    WAN network providers, ISPs, data centre providers, hosting companies, IP Telephony firms, and Investment Banks are some organizations for which point-to-point leased line connections may be suitable.
