Private Lines are point to point data voice circuits that connect two locations. These can be anywhere from an analog voice line to gigabit data service. As in most telecommunication services private lines have their advantages and disadvantages. Doctor Telco Inc. offers local, national and international private lines services from numerous carriers.
Advantages of Private Line
• Private Lines are non-shared service. You should receive the exact bandwidth you are paying for at all times.
• For locations that are close geography, in town or within 300 miles, private lines maybe more cost effective than MPLS.
Disadvantages of Private Line
• A private line always follows the same path. If that path is cut the service will be down until it is fixed. Some SONET based private line services will recover the line while the service is being repaired. Please note just because something is SONET based does not mean the carrier has the availably to recover the private line instantly.
• Private lines will be costly for locations over 300 miles.
