T1 Facts



T1 is a dedicated high-speed digital connection providing total bandwidth of 1.544 Mbps. A T-1 line consists of 24 individual channels, each transmitting up to 64Kbits per second. Each 64Kbit per second channel can be configured to carry voice or data traffic. A circuit configured with less than 24 channels is known as a fractional T1.


PRI T1 is a type of ISDN, and includes 23 B-channels and one D-Channel. PRI T1 is used primarily for voice traffic, but also supports data and video applications. High demand PRI features include caller ID, DID and accounting codes.


T1 lines are also a popular option for businesses connecting to the Internet. While T1 leased lines are more expensive than DSL or satellite, they are more stable and generally support a higher number of users. T1 lines are sometimes referred to as DS1 lines.
