A leased line is a permanent, high performance network connection that can carry voice, data and Internet traffic over a copper or fibre connection between one site and a Point of Presence, POP. They are typically used by businesses that need high speed Internet access that is reliable and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This gives business owners a greater peace of mind knowing that there is a dedicated bandwidth that ensures they always have the maximum amount of speed available when they need it. Unlike dial-up connections, leased lines are always active and come with a fixed monthly rate for the connection. The distance between end points as well as the desired speed determines this monthly fee. High speed leased lines are a great choice for businesses because since you receive a dedicated bandwidth that is used solely by your company your data is much more secure.
Types of High Speed Leased Lines
- Ethernet First Mile (EFM). EFM uses traditional copper technology to deliver speeds of up to 35Mbps to your line. Like most ADSL broadband lines the longer your phone line is the better your connection will be.
- Generic Ethernet Access (GEA). GEA connections use fibre to the cabinet technologies, FTTC. You have to first check that it is available in your area and if it is it can provide you with speeds up to 80 Mbps.
- Fibre Leased Lines. The ultimate in broadband feeds fibre leased lines have no issue with how far away your exchange is. So, regardless of where your business is located you can relax knowing its superfast connectivity will always be delivered.
- Point-to-Point. Point-to-Point leased lines are great for businesses that want direct connectivity between multiple sites. They use fibre technology to perform local exchanges, which means that files can be passed between multiple sites without them having to go through the Internet.
