Tucson Business,. You DO have an alternative to an overpriced and outdated "legacy" copper wire, T1 solution.Think "Optical Internet" or OI Optical Internet (OI) is a "Fiber direct to the premises" offered by a few different ILEC's and CLEC's around the USA . It is a Fiber Optic dat product service via an ethernet handoff. OI is primarily for medium- to large-sized businesses, and government and educational entities who need a high-capacity, dedicated connection to the Internet. Optical Internet (OI) is designed for enterprises requiring a very-high speed, scalable and symmetrical Internet connection.
OI also meets the needs of enterprises who require Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) mail feed and outbound relay services in support of company Mail servers; primary and secondary Domain Name Service (DNS) and IP address leasing in support of company servers (Web, Mail, FTP, etc.), routers and firewalls; and multi-homing/Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) routing, Newsgroup access, and Managed Router-based access and security services. Optical Internet can also scale to meet the needs of small and medium businesses (SMBs) who need a cost-effective, reliable alternative to DSL services or higher cost T1 Internet connections. Optical Internet is available at a variety of bandwidth tiers, providing businesses with a scalable, highly customizable solution to their Internet service needs. Features and Benefits High-speed, high-capacity metropolitan area network (MAN) in certain markets Fiber optic based, using SONET, Gigabit Ethernet and DWDM technology Scalable bandwidth to meet increasing demand without major network upgrades Nationwide fiber optic backbones Provisioned at OC-48 (2.4 Gbps) or higher Interconnects all fiber and legacy copper wire systems with certain CLEC's with major peering centers dispersed across the U.
S.

Connect customer equipment via standard interfaces or choose fiber Managed Router option and save on capital costs. Enhanced Protection Option Enhanced Protection Option (EPO) is an optional service that improves the reliability of your Optical Internet circuit. EPO utilizes both electronic redundancy and fiber path diversity techniques to deliver a highly available connection.
With EPO, CLEC supplied electronics at the customer's premise(s) are provisioned with 1:N or 1:1 electronic redundancy for each circuit delivered, providing a backup to unexpected electronic failures. EPO may also provide two physically separate fiber optic paths between a customer premise and the CLEC Master Telecommunication Center (MTC) that serves it. This enables CELC's and ILEC's to provide both a working and protect circuit to guard against a service interruption caused by a fiber optic cable cut or failure. Optical Internet with EPO provides your business with a highly-reliable, high uptime Internet service to meet the needs of your most demanding and mission-critical Internet-based applications and systems.
In addition to the specific features, benefits and strengths of Optical Internet, OI customers also benefit from the overall strength of Fiber Optic Communications Optical Internet offers a high-value alternative to Internet services provided by the ILEC and other CLECs, and local, regional or national Internet Service Providers (ISPs). So do not settle for just getting a bunch of overpriced and inferior T1's when you do have superior products availiable from multiple other sources to include Fiber optic drive ClEC's that offer "Optical Internet".
