Sagacent Technologies is in a wonderful position of being able to weigh many different Internet connection solutions from many different vendors and recommend the top one or two solutions which will best fit a client’s needs. Whether those connections be: DSL, T-1, Fiber, MPLS, or wireless.
Sagacent’s connectivity options provide an ideal internet connection solution no matter your unique needs. Consumers may select the ideal type of connection best suited for their needs and current infrastructure, whether it be DSL, T1, Fiber, MPLS, or wireless connectivity.
Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL) delivers broadband to many households in the United States. Many different Internet Service Providers offer DSL solutions, leaving consumers with many options to meet their internet connection needs. DSL works by using existing phone line infrastructure to deliver high-speed connectivity to homes and businesses, but it shouldn’t be confused with dial-up connectivity. Despite using the same infrastructure as dial-up, you are not actually dialing out to establish a connection, meaning that your phone lines will remain free for incoming and outgoing calls. DSL accomplishes this by using a different frequency than voice connections, which also makes it up to ten times faster than a dial-up connection while still being one of the most affordable internet connection solutions.
T1 connections are also based upon digital technology, although it operates a little bit differently than DSL. T1 is a synchronous time division multiplexed system. This means that the connection is not only going all the time but is sending and receiving data all the time. Sometimes, it is only data that maintains a connection, while other times it is transmitting the data you need. T1 can carry up to 24 telephone lines to support business PBX systems. T1 connectivity is symmetrical meaning that the upload and download speeds are the same. It is a great option for many businesses or home offices.
Fiber connectivity transmits data using fiber optic cables, or tiny strands of plastic or glass, that are bound together that transmit coded signals using pulses of light. This is very different than the way in which DSL or T1 connections work by transmitting electrical information through copper lines. Despite the unique architecture, fiber connections deliver some of the fastest internet service available today. They are able to transmit binary (digital) data incredibly fast while still being very reliable.
Multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) represents a technique for establishing an internet connection. It is a protocol for speeding up and defining digital traffic flows. In order to do this, MPLS sorts and prioritizes the data packets being sent based upon their class of service (voice, video, etc.). The outcome of this is greater reliability high-priority data streams – meaning less time is spent buffering video and fewer instances of dropped portions of voice calls.
Internet connectivity based upon a wireless delivery model is increasingly becoming the standard for many homes and businesses when available. When wireless broadband is available, areas with it are often known as hotspots (think Starbucks, airports, etc.). Wireless service is easy to use and convenient since it is always ready for mobile devices to connect.
We are also a reseller with several different connection providers including:
