Carrier Services Private Line


What is Private Line?


A Private Line is a leased communications path, local or toll, assigned for the private use of one customer and having no connection to the public telephone system. A Private Line system uses dedicated circuits to connect a customer’s equipment at both ends of the line. A private line does not provide switching capability unless it is supported by customer premises equipment. It includes two local loops and an inter-exchange carrier circuit. Billing is at a flat rate rather than usage sensitive.


Private Line Services are the perfect solution for extremely private and time-sensitive connectivity requirements. Private Line Circuits provide High-Speed access capabilities from DS1 (1.5 Mbps) to DS3 (45 Mbps) thru OC(n). Bandwidth options are scalable to meet changing specifications as business requirements grow.
