How To Keep Your Network Secure...Using A Point To Point Network

What is a Point-to-Point Network?

Point-to-Point Networks are mainly used for two locations that need to securely send sensitive or confidential data between each location. Its high performance it provides is due to the low latency of the network. For confidentiality purposes, this service doesn’t require the data traffic to be routed over the public internet, which is where many breaches in security can happen.

Things to Consider with Point-to-Point Services

* Pricing: Because businesses will be purchasing the physical line between the two locations, the suppliers will charge per mileage based on the two locations. For example, a Point-to-Point connection from California to New York will be substantially more expensive than a connection from California to Arizona.

* Equipment: Point-to-Point Networks require more equipment than an MPLS network. With this, the customer will have to be responsible for maintaining and managing the equipment that is needed for a Point-to-Point Network. Unfortunately, because of this, businesses usually do not have the time or staff to keep up with the managing that this service requires.

* Carriers: Most carriers will be able to provide a Point-to-Point network. However, most carriers that resell services will not provide this since they do not own their own network. Depending on the distance between the two connections, resellers will have to buy from multiple diverse carrier networks just to make up one Point-to-Point solution for a business. This could become very complicated for a reseller and less reliable.

* Alternatives: MPLS network requires less equipment than a Point-to-Point. Most businesses will choose an MPLS network since carriers will do the managing and maintaining of the equipment. Also, MPLS is very cost effective and can sometimes result in a more less expensive route for businesses.

Microwave Point-to-Point

If you have a fixed line of sight between the two locations, you may want to take the faster route that avoids installs and use a microwave point to point. This is just as secure, but keep in mind that carriers will charge based on usage.

International Point to Point

If you have two locations both oversees that need a secure point-to-point, there are options to use the same great carriers you are familiar with in the foreign location you need them in. See below for available carriers that provide International Point to Point.

Comparing Business Ethernet Service Providers [Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet] ....Cost And MUCH More

It seems the buzz in today's IT world is all about business ethernet....Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet in particular.

With that in mind....if your business is looking to:

* ....move into a building with existing carrier facilities.

* ....substantially upgrade your current broadband connections.

* ....establish a direct relationship with a provider without the local Bell in the equation.

* ....find a carrier who provides QoS (Quality of Service) guarantees. Since the carrier you select is in complete control of your connection, it is much easier for them to provide QoS.

* ....gather information that will be helpful in the planning stages of broadband deployment for a new real-estate development.

.....than we have an amazing resource for you.

Compare Ethernet Service Providers

The free resource web site, powered by next generation GeoQuote software and Google maps, enables the general public to search for lit buildings where carriers have a physical presence. The results are displayed on a dynamically generated map for easy viewing. There's also a ton of material explaining the background and application of ethernet technology for those who need it.

You can also use this related free resource.... Business Ethernet Solutions

Ethernet will be in five years what T1s are now - the standard for commercial broadband. Ethernet allows customers to connect DIRECTLY to the carrier's network at speed of 10 mbps to 10 gbps for under $20 per meg. That's a huge savings over existing connections......you get more for your buck.

The problem with ethernet is it's availability. Never before have carriers ever disclosed where they have their expensive fiber that makes ethernet possible. These carriers have now entrusted this highly valuable information to us for use with the above resource tool.

Combining the database of "lit buildings" we've received from XO, Level3, MegaPath, Telnes, Time Warner Telecom, Nuvox, One Communications, TelePacific, Telx, Zayo (to name just a few of over 50+ providers included) and Google maps, we created a visual research tool that will foster interest in ethernet service..... as well as assist companies looking to relocate find office space close to an ethernet service provider.

Why is Ethernet the future?

Ethernet is, quite simply, plugging your network directly into a telecom provider's network. When you bypass the local phone company you cut out an expensive transport step. Having direct access to customers is a carrier's goal as it allows them to control the user's experience from end to end while reducing cost. These savings are passed on to you.

"The market for managed Ethernet services is expected to grow by 30 per cent a year until 2010, when it will top $25 billion (£12.3bn) worldwide." Infonetics Research - July 2007

"Over time, Ethernet will overwhelm SONET in the MAN/WAN market. Ethernet is cheaper, has better economies of scale and allows for simpler, more unified networks. Ethernet is at the gates, and it's coming in." Greg Collins - July 2007 Business Communications Review Magazine

What You Need To Know About Business Ethernet Network Services

Why Use Business Ethernet Services?

Plain and simple, Ethernet services to access the Internet is your most cost effective option for a simple, solid and reliable Internet connection. It is much more cost effective than T1 or bonded T1, yet it maintains the same SLA (Service Level Agreement) that accompanies any T1 or bonded T1 type of circuit from a reputable carrier.

Be aware that not all Ethernet is created equally. There are some second and third tier carriers out there that offer Ethernet which is really not what it is advertised to be, and in one particular case I am aware of, it was disguised and really turned out to be just DSL, with all the inherent unreliability of a DSL connection.

How Is Ethernet Delivered?

Ethernet services can be delivered on either copper or fiber, and much of the decision as to how it is delivered is dependent on your area. If fiber has already been laid in your area to support the information infrastructure, then chances are that it will be delivered on fiber.

Some carriers ONLY provide Ethernet on copper, which as the name implies, is known as EOC or Ethernet Over Copper. Again, this type of service is dependent on how much the carriers have built out their networks in a given area, where such buildouts are more common in the major metro areas. Some carriers can provide 5 MB, 10 MB, even as high as 40 MB EOC or Ethernet Over Copper in those areas where it is available. P> But in other areas, and especially if you need more than about 40 MB or so of bandwidth, Ethernet is delivered on fiber optic cabling.

Are Ethernet Services Cost Effective?

Ethernet services are almost always more cost effective than T1, bonded T1, or fractional or full DS3 offerings of the same bandwidth. Yet, the Ethernet services come with the same SLA that the traditional circuits are provided with. Ethernet can also be combined with MPLS technology with most carriers so that you can have the best of both worlds in terms of Internet access and your own MPLS private network to enable cloud-based connections to the other nodes on your MPLS network.

Where To Get Ethernet Services?

Be careful where you get Ethernet services from. A cable company cannot and does not offer Ethernet service that are dedicated, or at least not dedicated to anywhere other than their over-saturated and over-subscribed network backbones, and such a "dedicated" connection gains you nothing.

Shop from amongst the nation's first tier and top tier carriers that can offer Ethernet services in your area, being assured by our Low Price Guarantee that you cannot go to the carrier directly or another agency representing any of our carriers and get a lower price for the same circuit. It is truly one-stop shopping for reliable and rock-solid carriers that can provide Ethernet services to your company.

How To Find The Right Virtual Private LAN Service

What is VPLS?

VPLS (Virtual Private LAN Service) is a layer 2 solution where routing is a function owned and managed by the customer. In a VPLS, the local area network (LAN) at each site is extended to the edge of the provider network. The provider network then emulates a switch or bridge to connect all of the customer LANs to create a single bridged LAN. VPLS is a way to provide Ethernet-based multipoint to multipoint communication over IP or MPLS networks.

When is VPLS the right choice?

* You want control of routing protocols

* You want to manage network neighbors and connectivity

* Convergence times will be faster than MPLS VPN

* Smaller, less complex network than what you have currently

* Enables you to leverage existing Ethernet interfaces

* Affords support for non-IP protocols

* Allows support for IP multicast

Advantages of VPLS

* Routing flexibility and control.

* Allows enterprises to quickly scale bandwidth from megabits and gigabits.

* Protocol independent, supporting IP, IPX and other protocols.

* Leverages Ethernet interfaces and enables enterprises to extend their local network into the WAN

The Advantages Of Business Ethernet...Let Me Count The Ways

When it comes time to choose and make the tough choices for your business, there will undoubtedly be lots of different options available. This is especially true when talking about telecommunications, where the market is full of things that look good on the surface. You could go with T1, Ethernet, DSL, cable, or something else. With all of these things staring your business in the face, you have to consider the costs and the weigh the benefits of each choice. This choice is one that shouldn't really be a contest, though. Business Ethernet offers many advantages over the other choices out on the market.

There are quite a few reasons why Business Ethernet is the best choice for business telecommunications. First and foremost, it comes down to speed and reliability. These are the two things that you need to be looking for when you make this choice. When you are running a network, communicating with your customers via email, allowing your customers to download literature and specs from your server, and having a responsive and attractive online presence, you need for it to provide the type of speed and power that your customers and employees expect demand. The speed of your system will dictate how much work gets done and it will set the tone for your business. If you have anything less than the best, your business as a whole will suffer. Running a high speed network with Ethernet makes sure that you are putting your best foot forward. Remember, in the eyes of your customer, you only have one chance to make a first impression, so make sure it is a good one in the highly competitive marketplace.

The biggest reason why Business Ethernet is better than DSL and cable is because of the reliability factor. With DSL and cable, you have no uptime guarantee and no bandwidth availability guarantee, because you are sharing DSL and cable with 50-100 other businesses and residences. Yes this is also true with “business class” DSL or cable service. But Ethernet comes with an uptime guarantee and bandwidth availability guarantee and is faster than the same speeds advertised on DSL or cable. When running a tethered system of this nature, you don't have to worry about many of the common disconnect problems that go along with running a cable or DSL system. Simply put, this Ethernet is more efficient when it comes to being online and providing a business with the power that it needs. It stands out in this way above the other options.

Some people might make compelling arguments that bonded T1 is a better choice for business telecommunications than Ethernet. When dealing with the same amount of bandwidth, you are almost certainly going to get more bang for your buck by going with Ethernet, if it is available in your location. It is a much more cost effective way to power your business's most important functions, and that is important for business owners who are looking to control the bottom line. Simply put, you won't be paying as much and you will be getting the same amount of capability and bandwidth when you go with Ethernet, with the added benefit of the inherent advantages and written guarantees that DSL and cable cannot provide.

Now that you are armed with the knowledge that business ethernet makes the most business sense for your company network...the next step is to see where you can get it and how much it will cost you. That's as easy as 1, 2, 3....simply ask at the link below and you'll get a comparison of available providers AND free rate quotes. This no cost resource will save you the time, money, and effort of doing it yourself.

The Advantages Of Ethernet Services As Your Corporate Network Backbone

Ethernet technology has long been used to efficiently and effectively build LANs within business settings. Its widespread presence in the business world is a testimony for its simplicity and efficiency, as well as its ease of use and management. Now, Ethernet extends into the wide area as a cost-effective solution for connecting business sites to each other and to the Internet. Wide-area Ethernet services are an ideal choice if your business has intensive bandwidth demands and multiple locations in one or more major cities.

Until recently, only a select few service providers offered separate metro Ethernet services (connecting sites within the same city) and long-haul Ethernet services (creating a point-to-point connection between sites in different cities) over expensive fiber networks. Previously, the cost and availability of Ethernet technology put it beyond the reach of most businesses. Today’s Ethernet services use relatively inexpensive and omnipresent copper line to deliver the speeds that small and medium businesses and enterprises need.

In this design, the Ethernet service operates in the same way as any other access service, allowing one site to connect to another site on your network, whether across town or across the country, or connecting to the Internet. This design also means that sites can be configured into virtual private networks (VPNs), regardless of the access service used at each location.

Where available, Ethernet services offer bandwidth from 2x2 Mbps up to 45x45 Mbps per circuit, at a much lower cost than DS3 access or comparable bonded T1 service. Ethernet bandwidth is symmetrical, and delivers the same speed for uploads and downloads on the network connection, making it an ideal solution for businesses that need to upload and download data.

Ethernet services are easy to install and manage because the technology uses your existing copper-loop infrastructure, an Ethernet bridge, a router, and a standard, familiar 10/100 Ethernet interface. With some providers, it is also easy to add voice, security, and collaboration hosting services to your business Ethernet connection. This simplicity and support for multiple network services means Ethernet is easily scalable to meet the growing demands of your business.

By using loop-bonding technology, Ethernet offers greater reliability and bandwidth efficiency than a bonded T1 connection, which uses link-bonding technology. More flexibly for using existing circuits is also possible with loop bonding, which can combine circuits with any mix of bandwidth. In contrast, link bonding requires the same bandwidth on each circuit, e.g., bonding only a 1.5 Mbps T1 circuit to another 1.5 Mbps T1.

Although both methods are effective, loop-bonding is a newer technology that reduces overhead and deals with loop failure more efficiently. That means more bandwidth is available for applications in an Ethernet service and your network connection will have higher reliability than alternative access methods.

Service providers offer Ethernet as a fully managed solution, with round-the-clock, proactive network monitoring and management. The solution is also typically backed by service level agreements (SLAs) that guarantee network uptime, as well as time windows for installation and problem response.

How To Find The Right WAN Solution

What is WAN

A wide area network (WAN) is a computer network that spans across great distances typically a region or country. They can be used to transmit data to connect separate network structures together. WAN's can be connect local area networks by physical circuits or through packet switching as a virtual connection.

While WAN's are often private networks to retain information in a single company or business, they can also be set up by an internet service provider to connect a customer's local area network to the internet. Unlike its counterpart, Local Area Network (LAN), wide area networks allow for much larger and more intricate networks. They can cover a large amount of distance.

Ethernet WAN

Ethernet WAN, also known as wide area Ethernet (WAE) is high speed layer 2 delivery of WAN. This a more cost effective solution to provide WAN service as a virtual connection rather than leased circuits connecting locations. The main benefits to this application of WAN is that Ethernet is becoming the standard and is widely used eliminating custom interfacing on routers. Also, connectivity speed is much higher on Ethernet than traditional WAN.

Things To Consider

A WAN should only occur in large environments. This is a great option as you are connecting from house to house, city to city and/or country to country. The internet is a great example of WAN.

WAN does tend to have slower speeds than a LAN due to the length of the network. It is typically much more expensive as well, especially if it is a private WAN. The connection tends to be harder to set up and there are a lot of different ways they can be set up.

Comparing Business Ethernet And DS3 Bandwidth Circuits

When businesses are looking for the right bandwidth solution for critical business network applications, the popular options today are DS3 bandwidth and Business Class Ethernet. Either are a good choice as long as you understand what each can do for you. Do your homework, compare pros and cons as they relate to your network requirements, and choose wisely.

Outside of the cost difference between DS3 bandwidth and Business Ethernet (Ethernet tends to be cheaper or at least very competitive) , the speed varies a wide range from 45 mbps to 100 mbps to 1000 mbps (FastE to GigE). If you shop around you’ll likely discover that DS3 line costs have dropped dramatically in today’s market. Still, Ethernet pricing is attractive where it is available. Where it is not, build out costs may be prohibitive. In terms of reliability, they're similar because they're both dedicated bandwidth circuits.

The traditional high bandwidth network connection is a DS3 line, delivering up to 45 Mbps of connectivity. Today, most DS3 services are provisioned over fiber optic cables with a copper handoff at the demarcation point. In some cases, you can get DS3 brought in over coaxial copper or even wireless transport. There’s plenty of flexibility available currently to deliver DS3 capacity with little restriction from the transport mechanism.

For application, a DS3 circuit works as a reliable backbone for large networks with substantial voice/data/video traffic needs. For example, organizations that need high bandwidth such as headquarters phone lines (PBX and/or VoIP), company Supply Chain Management (SCM) systems, high traffic websites, Hospital medical imaging and diagnostic systems, data/disaster recovery and backup networks, video conferencing facilities, multi-media or virtual design centers, high security networks, and ISP backbones. Where DS3 is not quite enough capacity, opting for the “next up” OC3 circuit (fiber optic bandwidth transmission) is an option.

An alternative to DS3 is Carrier Ethernet, especially Metro Ethernet in larger cities. Ethernet services offer standardized speeds of 10, 100 and 1000 Mbps to match the common LAN (Local Area Network) speeds. But most Ethernet providers also offer other increments in 1, 5 or 10 Mbps steps. A 50 Mbps Ethernet service provides similar bandwidth to DS3.

So how do you choose one service over another?

If you need the channelization of traditional TDM services for telephony or other applications, DS3 already meets this standard. It is easily multiplexed and de-multiplexed to interface with T1 lines on the low end to SONET fiber optic services (e.g. OCx) on the high end. On the other hand, if your network interests are extending your LAN or an already converged voice and data network, Metro or Carrier Ethernet is the logical connection. Make sure to understand your existing network configuration to enable a smart decision here. Otherwise, you risk potential frustration and an “apples and oranges” scenario.

If you have any concern for interface issues don’t worry. You can opt for a Managed Router Service which will take care of any such issues. Most networking applications are now packet based and more easily interfaced to Ethernet WAN services than legacy Telecom standards. But since the interface circuitry is generally an off the shelf router module, it may not matter all that much. If you go with a managed router, the service provider will take care of providing the proper customer premises equipment and monitoring the line and interfaces for proper operation. No matter whether you choose DS3 or Ethernet. In some cases, you may also get the vendor to provide the router at no cost … whether on site or remote (managed). Be sure to ask if this accommodation may be extended to you. It won’t in every case, but it’s worth asking.

Don’t overlook availability of Fractional DS3 and Burstable DS3 either. Fractional DS3 services are available that offer less than 45 Mbps for a lower monthly lease cost. You can get fractional DS3 bandwidth at the speeds where T1 bonding becomes impractical (around 10 or 12 Mbps bandwidth depending on your intended application usage). You can also go the other direction with Burstable DS3. Which allows you to start at usually 45 mbps and increase your bandwidth as your needs grow. A Burstable DS3 is the ideal solution for businesses who seek ultra-fast connectivity for their Internet needs.....and don't require full OC3 load capacity just yet but may in the future.

On the Ethernet side, with scalable Ethernet you can specify nearly any bandwidth from 1 Mbps up to 10 Gbps and often upgrade to higher levels with just a phone call to your service provider. The flexibility of bandwidth scaling offered with Ethernet is a major advantage to this transport option.

Be advised that an Ethernet connection is not available in every location. Normally this limitation is restricted to where the network providers have fiber already laid out in the neighborhood. You’ll most often find major cities or urban areas to be “lit” while more rural locales are not. Where Business Ethernet isn’t available, a DS3 or OC3 circuit is the best option for a company that needs more bandwidth to grow.

If you're fortunate and you're in an area where Ethernet connections are available, whether they're FastE or GigE, count your blessings and go for it. The cost can vary from depending on the bandwidth needed and local loop (distance from the tie in to the providers Point-Of-Presence or POP). The FastE cost and GigE cost are usually less than per megabit than a DS3 or OC3 … or at the minimum very competitive.

So which bandwidth option offers the best value? The fact is that DS3 and Ethernet bandwidths compare favorably. Which you choose for your particular application will most often be determined by which service offers the best pricing for your particular business location. Therein lies the foundation for your decision …. all else being equal. DS3 bandwidth is perfect for most applications. However, if a company is price sensitive and the solution is available Business Ethernet would be the recommended alternative.

For assistance finding the right dedicated bandwidth fit for your organization’s needs …. and to save you time, money, and aggravation … I strongly recommend using the free help available to you here:

How To Find The Right MPLS Network Solution

MPLS (otherwise known as Multiprotocol Label Switching) service offers businesses around the world with a centralized wide are network that can be controlled from the carrier core for enhanced security and performance. Using MPLS technology, businesses can communicate with all locations in a fully meshed network, instead of having different parts of the network communicate separately. This centralized infrastructure allows for better latency, jitter, and packet prioritization that allows video, voice, and data to travel over the network so that each application will perform at its optimum level. QOS (quality of service) is a core advantage to having an MPLS network protecting the most important information over the non essential traffic as well as making real time applications like voice and video perform at a high level.

MPLS Benefits

“Smart” Packet Routing: Since the router doesn’t have to determine where the packets are going, the router can more quickly send the packets to their end destinations.

QoS (Quality of Service): QoS is a method for monitoring and controlling the traffic running over your network, and ensuring that packets are prioritized in the event that congestion occurs. QoS acts like a traffic cop, determining which traffic is more important.

Supplier Management: The supplier providing the MPLS network is responsible for ensuring that it works properly, which can cut down on your in-house IT costs. It will also free up time for your IT staff to work on other projects.

Security: MPLS networks offer high levels of security, which is especially beneficial for companies with compliancy requirements.

Scalability: MPLS networks allow an unlimited amount of sites to be added and supported. It can also be used over any medium, which means companies are not limited to specific products sets.

MPLS networks are becoming a standard for companies looking for managed private networking and packet prioritization. Companies that are running real-time applications, such as Voice (SIP Trunking, Hosted PBX) or Video, may choose to have that traffic run over an MPLS network to guarantee that it operates smoothly. Choosing the right MPLS provider is an important decision. If you have a network scenario that requires MPLS, please consult FreedomFire Communications to determine the best fit that makes busines sense for you.

How Does an MPLS Network Work?

An MPLS network ties all of the nodes of the network back to a common host by way of private carrier connections, or private lines. Carriers have multiple access types available to them, including: DSL, T1, Ethernet over Copper, Metro Ethernet, and Microwave. Once all of the nodes connect to the host via private lines, the host can be programmed to handle and route traffic as dictated. Internet ports can be opened up and managed at the host, to control the flow of external traffic to and from the network. The host can also be secured with a carrier-grade firewall to make it virtually impossible for a hacker to penetrate the network.

MPLS versus VPN

The primary difference between VPN and MPLS is that VPN encrypts data before transmitting it over the public internet, making it subject to routing delays, jitter, or packet loss. MPLS consists of private line connections to one single host, who can communicate back and forth over one single private carrier backbone network, without ever touching the internet. From the host, and MPLS network administrator can open up ports to the public internet for users who need outside access.

Another main differentiator between MPLS and virtual private networks is security. In a VPN scenario, all an intruder needs to do to access the entire network is to compromise one single VPN server at any node on the network. VPN is, quite literally, only as strong as its weakest link. Once a hacker has penetrated once branch office, they have access to the entire network. In an MPLS scenario, every office connects to one centralized host, housed within the carrier's core network, and is protected by very sophisticated (and expensive) firewall hardware and software.

Things to look for when you source an MPLS network

* Professional Management
* Coverage
* Term Commitments
* Future Upgrades
* Installation
* Cost

Voice over MPLS (VoMPLS)

Voice over MPLS (VoMPLS) is the convergence of two separate, yet very complimentary services: Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Voice over IP (VoIP). Businesses looking to harness the benefits of both MPLS and VoIP are seeing the value of migrating their VoIP traffic from an internet-driven solution to a supplier managed MPLS network.

MPLS has emerged as the managed network of choice for suppliers. With the benefits and capabilities of MPLS networks, many businesses have seen the value of migrating their aging WAN to MPLS. Additionally, VoIP is growing in popularity. It is projected to overtake and become the #1 used voice technology in the next several years. Companies are choosing to migrate from their older, traditional voice systems to VoIP-based systems in order to stay current with the latest technology.

How can a VoMPLS solution benefit you?

1) Voice calls will have guaranteed performance, due to the inherent QoS and “Smart” packet routing offered by MPLS.

2) Voice calls will be kept secure and private, as voice calls can be configured to run via a private network, not over the public internet.

3) Companies can capitalize on reduced-usage costs by harnessing the cheaper and more advanced features of VoIP.

4) Companies can cut down on their IT spending, as the supplier handles the maintenance on MPLS networks.

5) Adding locations to the MPLS network is simple, and it can scale quickly on an “As-Needs” basis.

6) Call routing/failover can be implemented in the event of an outage or natural disaster.

When it comes to large VoMPLS opportunities, you want qualified professionals to help you along the away. FreedomFire Communications offers a unique position over other Master Distributors, as they employ a full-time Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE), who can offer unbiased, carrier-neutral engineering.
