What is a NxT1?

Dear Metro:

As we are growing, we are investigating different bandwidth options. We currently have a T1, but I think that perhaps a T3 is overkill. Is there a stepped option in between that would make more sense? In the past, there was no way to bridge this gap, but I heard their may be a good choice available now.

Dear William,

I believe that we have the ideal options for those looking for something more robust than a T1, but not interested in going the full T3 route.

A NxT1 will give your business bandwidth over 1.5 Mbps (that of a T1), without requiring DS3 access.

A NxT1 connects 2, 3, or 4 dedicated T1 circuits (3 Mbps, 4.5 Mbps or 6 Mbps), and access is provided through a combination of software and hardware components. This provides greater bandwidth automatically by load balancing the traffic over the multiple T1 links.

Many of our clients have found that their old T1 lines do not have enough bandwidth to deal with the demands being made on their network networks. however the T3's are overkill for many small and midsized businesses.

The NxT1 option is a new approach to bundling T1 circuits. It solves the issues that had limited other solutions, and fills the T1-T3 gap.

We would be happy to discuss the NxT1 option with you. Just give CNSG a call at 1.866.738.1662.
