A Internet Leased Line is a private high-performance circuit leased by a common carrier between Customer’s premises and ISP’s NOC. It is rented on an annual basis and usually carries voice and data or both. Unlike a dial-up connection, a leased line is always active. Similarly unlike broadband, a leased line is not contended or shared and delivers dedicated guaranteed bandwidth straight to the internet backbone. Customers pay a premium for a leased line and it is supported by a comprehensive Service-Level Agreement (SLA) with a guaranteed fix time and a compensation clause.
A Lease Line can also be used for following applications :
- Linking your web server to the Internet, which gives you the flexibility to tailor applications according to your business requirements.
- To host your corporate web site or e-commerce storefront where customers and business partners from around the world can reach your company 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week , making your business accessible round the clock.
- To send & receive e-mails through the Internet, set up news groups & electronic bulletin boards or simply browse the web any time.
- For showcasing your company profile, products & service packages even in a multimedia format.
