Non Dial up Connections
These types of connections do not require a modem or a phone
line to connect to internet. They are normally connected through
cable wires. Here we discuss different type of Non Dial up Connections
ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) is usually
considered to be one step advanced than a dial up connection using
a 56K modem. The data transfer speed is remarkably higher than
the dial up connection. Using
ISDN service you can connect or disconnect the service just like
the dial up service. An ISDN connection has to be activated to
access internet. However, ISDN consists of fully digital circuits
that run at 128Kbps. Therefore, it quickly establishes a connection
to your service provider when you initiate the connection to the
2] Frame Relay
Frame relay is an internet connection provided by the
telephone company. This connection is shared by many users mostly
their customers. Internet Service Providers
who uses frame relay provide a Committed Information Rate for
the minimum transmission speed they will guarantee to provide
all the time. Higher transmission speeds may be made available
for some time. Compare to other non-dial up connections frame
Relay is a very reliable and stable technology that can be used
for direct connections to service providers or building wide area
networks between several locations.
DSL stands for Digital Subscriber Line. There are different types
of DSL technologies, Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL)
and Symmetrical Digital Subscriber Line (SDSL). The former type
of internet connection provides different upload and download
speeds and is most popular with consumer customers. The other
type of DSL connection provides the same speed in both directions.
SDSL is most popular with businesses and larger nonprofits. In
recent years, the DSL market really took off in many urban areas.
Cable connections are provided through a coaxial cable,
generally using the same line that carries your cable TV service.
Cable connections are more popular in home users. Cable connections
offer several different speeds with highest connection speeds
mostly 1 to 2 Mbps, at relatively low costs. This connection can
be shared but slower speeds can be a common occurrence if use
is more. Also,
the cable company will usually only provide one IP address making
it necessary to purchase a router to share the connection.
5] Leased Line connections
Leased line connections are generally used by bigger
institution or companies with large budgets for internet connections.
It is a private, dedicated line that goes directly from your Internet
Service Provider (ISP) to your office. This line can be split
into segments and divided among users. Leased lines provide high
bandwidth, since they are not shared with other users.
6] Fixed Wireless
Fixed Wireless uses unlicensed radio bandwidth to transmit
data between your organization and your internet service provider
(ISP). The speeds can be very high normally around 10Mbps and
it can even cover longer distances. Here the cost is considerably
less than the wired version with similar features. However, the
initial set-up costs may be very high depending on the equipment
that your ISP requires.
