Ethernet vs T1 in Replacing Legacy Services
Business Ethernet enables carriers to offer low-cost network services at up to 50% below the price of legacy protocols, making it a strong substitute for T1/T3, frame relay and ATM. The low price points customers have come to expect for Ethernet bandwidth may present a challenge for incumbent carriers, which will try to keep Ethernet vs T1 prices high so as not be dragged down the margin slope, especially in competition with their own TDM private line services. They will be challenged in the metro-area Ethernet market by cable operators that do not have an installed private line base to protect. Here at OSSTelco we partner with carriers that provide up-to-date ethernet services, that can offer you the most cost efficient, reliable solution.
