More about DS3 T1


Is your business is looking for the right solution for critical business network solution? If your answer is yes, then best option for you today is DS3/T1 bandwidth. DS3/T1 bandwidth delivers the extra capacity and worry free reliability your company requirement to support its business function.

First, DS3 is a dedicated network connection supporting data rates of about 44.736 megabits per second. This is usually rounded up to 45 Mbps for discussion sake. For general comparison a DS3 is 28 times higher than T1, since each T1 can carry 1.544 megabits per second. So technically, a DS3 runs 28 T1 lines alongside one another, and that takes extra equipment and software to work properly. To break it down further, a DS3 line consists of 672 individual channels, each of which supports 64 Kbps. The signals used are called Digital Signal 3 or DS3.

For many businesses, a T1 line is sufficient for quick, always-on access to the Internet. But for large businesses with a sizeable user base, or for businesses and organizations that regularly work with high-bandwidth applications like audio and video, a more robust solution is required:  a DS-3/T3 line.

Benefitting your Business

The key technology everywhere today is to relay 'live feeds' of images along with hi-definition audio and video-hence the proliferation of HD content on the internet and also otherwise. It is obvious that better the technology, the faster will you be able to satisfy your client's demands and requirements; needless to say, providing service will also be quite helpful. After considering all the growing demands for a better and faster communication channel, the DS3 T3 lines were conceived. The fact is that the bandwidth supported by DS3 lines is so high that even streaming live HD feeds can be seamlessly carried out without stressing the communication channels - that leaves you with other options to expand your business and use the remaining bandwidth for remaining communication purposes. If you're still unsure about utilizing the technology to its optimum, you can always take help of a web service provider that will help you get a good deal and also suggest good according to the level of your business.

Getting the fastest lines won't help you unless you have such large volumes of business to handle - therefore get one which makes your production and service cost-effective at the same time.

So if you are still looking for a speed bandwidth that only DS3/T1 services can provide, can easily make it happen. Our bandwidth is a proven, reliable, and cost effective choice for many network applications. Now that you know more about what it is, what it does, and what it may cost you... you can make a better informed decision on whether a DS3 circuit is the best option for you.

Brief explanation on T1 pricing and DS3 bandwidth services

T1 lines are priced by carriers in different ways.  However this usually comes down to two components;the local loop (this is the cost the local carrier charges to carry the signal from the end user's Central Office (CO) to the Point Of Presence (POP) of the carrier)and port (access to the network through the carrier's network) Usually the port cost is assessed in access speed and contract level) and the loop is based on location.  The greater the distance between the CO and POP the more the loop will cost.

The loop price will be assessed by the mileage calculation (performed in V/H co-ordinates and not GPRS) and the telco piece.  The Bell operating companies all charge different T1 line providers price per mile rates.  This means the price calculation has two distance steps - geomapping and local price arrangements.

For T1 voice lines the above calculations are similar except the port (needed for Internet access) is exchanged by LDU (Long Distance Usage). Once the loop price is agreed the voice related charges are added to the total.  Therefore total price = loop + LDU x minutes used.
If the above sounds complicated don't worry as performs all these calculations with different T1 carriers. Any questions you may have on pricing will be explained in detail by our Product Specialists so you should have no hidden surprises.


It is becoming obvious that a standard T1 circuit will not be able to cope with the growth of bandwidth applications.  For example a T1 circuit is 1.5 megabits/sec whereby downloading a three minute piece of music is 3MB or 24 megabits.  Uploading or downloading a digital photograph would use 2 MB or 16 megabits.  A Power Point presentation is 10 MB or 80 megabits.  If several office workers were to transmit a Power Point presentation at the same time the T1 connection would slow down for three or more minutes.  This does not allow for all the other bandwidth limiting applications such as spam ‘e’ mail choking the connection to the Internet whilst trying to connect with the ‘e’ mail server.  Other office workers may also be watching their security or baby cams at home, watching news programs, video channels or uploading other applications.The phenomenal growth in this area cannot possibly cope with a standard T1 line.To keep pace with this growing demand and maintain a High Speed internet connection you need to look for a DS3 provider.A DS3 which is sometimes called a T3 or E3 is leased from a dedicated carrier.  This line connects directly between your business to an Internet Service Provider (ISP).  A DS3 /T3 uses digital signals on fiber optic cables at a speed of 45,000,000 bits per second or 44.74 MB per second.  This equates to 28 T1 connections.  Usually a DS3 line is for more than 50 users and/or applications needing maximum bandwidth.  Point to Point (PtP) access between two offices or businesses can be supplied by a DS3/T3 connection.A DS3 can cope with 672, 64 Kilobits per second voice conversations or 1 video line which is the standard used by North America and Japan.  The DS3 line can cope with full streaming videos and transfers of large amounts of data at the same time without degradation.

 Large organizations or businesses would commonly use a DS3 line.  These businesses or organizations would typically be Call Centers, Universities, Corporations or Internet Service Providers (ISP’s).Small business organizations would also use DS3 at a lower bandwidth when they want to serve multiple locations.  These speeds are generally between 6 MB per second and 45 MB per second for a Fractional DS3 and full DS3 respectively.If you are an organization that has 50 or more users or a requirement for multiple bandwidth demands such as video conferencing between locations then you will need a DS3/T3 line.  You may also be a business who is in the market wishing to provide bandwidth to your clients on a resale basis.Small to medium size organizations would usually use a standard T1 line which is capable of coping with 24 voice calls at the same time or a fast Internet connection speed of 1.5MB per second.  With a DS3 line it can cope with 672 voice calls at the same time along with a fast Internet connection of 45MB per second.  This is generally the requirement for huge amounts of data transfers and voice calls.  This would equate to 28 T1’s or 672 voice calls.Part of a circuit is known as “Fractional” which is generally used by most customers.  As an example a full DS3 is capable of delivering 45 MB per second whereby a Fractional DS3 line is the equivalent of 5 T1’s.  This satisfies most business users’ requirements.The cost for a DS3 line depends on the distance you are form the Internet Service Provider (ISP) Central Office (known as CO) connection. You will also be charged for bandwidth usage.If you are planning on installing a DS3 line you would be wise to use a no obligation quote service such as  They can obtain the most competitive quotes from a range of carriers thus eliminating the need to trawl around individual carriers for your best DS3 quote.  They also have Product Specialists experts in this field who can answer your questions and tailor the service you require.Some uses for DS3 is Point to Point (connecting two locations), Data transfer, Frame Relay, Voice calls and VPN.
