Point to Point Service
Point to Point Circuit is a private data connection securely connecting two or more locations for private data services. A point to point circuit is a closed network data transport service which does not traverse the public Internet. The service is inherently secure with no data encryption needed. Point to Point connections are available in a range of a bandwidth speeds including point to point T1, DS3, or point to point Ethernet. As bandwidth needs continue to increase, Ethernet private lines have become the preferred transport method for higher speed connectivity.
A point to point connection is also a dedicated service that provides unparalleled quality of service (QoS), as it is not a shared network service (a private line). The network path taken is always the same, and a direct network route, providing for very low latency and packet loss. This is ideal for applications where performance is imperative, and service is backed by network guarantees (SLA). Point to Point links are used by businesses to provide reliable, secure point to point data service for applications including private cloud, data center connections, file sharing, data backup, VOIP, and video. Also, a point to point network can also be configured to carry voice, video, Internet, and data services together over the same point to point connection.
Pricing for point to point service is based on mileage, so it can be more expensive than other data transport options like EVPL, VPLS, and MPLS VPN, especially for long distances. For businesses looking for the security, reliability, and network performance, a point to point link is a good solution. Point to Point Circuits are also known as a Point to Point Link, Private Line, Leased Line, or Data Line.
