Your Leased Line Circuit Options: Speeds, Technologies and Topologies

Leased line circuits provide you with a dedicated symmetric connection between two locations.

They are ideal for linking an office to the Internet, or to your company's corporate WAN.

Leased line circuits come in a number of different sizes. 2Mbit/s, 10Mbit/s and 100Mbit/s are common choices, though it is possible to get 1Gbit/s and 10Gbit/s connections as well.

Most leased line circuits use fibre-optic cables to transmit your data. These connections are the most reliable, and offer the highest speeds.

Leased Line Definition – What it is… in Plain English!

Here's my leased line definition: A leased line is a point-to-point symmetric dedicated data connection.

Point-to-point means that it connects two points (i.e. locations) together.

Symmetric means that you can send and receive data at the same high speeds.

Dedicated means that the connection is just for your use. You don't have to share the bandwidth with anyone. The same bandwidth is available at all times, even at peak times when lots of other customers of your ISP are using their connections to the full.
