WCS’s Dedicated Internet Access (“DIA”) service provides Internet access to Customer via a TDM or Ethernet local loop from Customer premises router to a port on the WCS access router. Service must terminate into a WCS-approved router on the Customer Premises. WCS-provided routers are maintained and managed including all associated device configurations and operational usernames and passwords by WCS. Customer must provide WCS unrestricted access to WCS-provided DIA equipment for purposes of testing, upgrading, and other maintenance activities.
WCS’s Public IP: Satellite provides broadband connectivity via a network of Ka-band aeronautical earth stations. Using groundbreaking web acceleration technology, which dramatically speeds up page-load times, minimizing the effect of latency, WCS Public IP: Satellite provides both primary and back up service with an immediate alternate routing for if your primary circuit is temporarily down.
WCS’s Public IP: Wireless utilizes both 3G and 4G broadband technology to provide both primary and back up service with an immediate alternate routing for if your primary circuit is temporarily down. Whether you’re backing up Internet access or assuring secure failover for an MPLS connection, Wireless Data Backup provides resilient network connectivity without the need for on-site construction or equipment costs.
Broadband is a family of technologies that provide internet access by transmitting digital data over various communications infrastructure. Within the broadband family, the following technologies are employed:
DSL or xDSL: a family of technologies understood to mean asymmetrical digital subscriber line (ADSL). The DSL service is delivered simultaneously over the telephone line because DSL uses high frequency bands for data transmission
Cable Internet: a form of access that uses the cable television infrastructure. It uses network edge connectivity (last mile access from the internet service provider to the end user
Fiber to the Node (FTTN): a form of fiber-optic communication delivery, in which an optical fiber terminates in a street cabinet, in the proximity of the customer premises, with the final connections being copper. FTTN is often an interim step toward full FTTP
Fiber to the Premises (FTTP): a form of fiber-optic communication delivery, in which an optical fiber is run in an optical distribution network from the central office all the way to the subscriber premises.
Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) MPLS directs data from one network node to the next based on short path labels rather than long network addresses, avoiding complex lookups in a routing table. The labels identify virtual links (paths) between distant nodes rather than endpoints. MPLS can encapsulate packets of various network protocols, hence its name "multiprotocol". MPLS supports a range of access technologies, including TDM and Ethernet. In an MPLS network, data packets are assigned labels. Packet-forwarding decisions are made solely on the contents of this label, without the need to examine the packet itself. This allows one to create end-to-end circuits across any type of transport medium, using any protocol. The primary benefit is to eliminate dependence on a particular Layer 2 technology, and eliminate the need for multiple layer-2 networks to satisfy different types of traffic.
WCS Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) is a class of Virtual Private Network (VPN) that allows customers to create an Ethernet-based multipoint to multipoint virtual private Local Area Network (LAN) between geographically separated locations making all services appear as if they are on the same LAN. VPLS is a Layer 2 (L2) service whereby devices are connected via Ethernet Virtual Connections (EVCs) in a fully meshed configuration allowing any to any connectivity of both IP and non-IP based traffic.
Private Lines can be TDM (Time Division Multiplex) or Ethernet (EPL). TDM and EPL can provide point to point and dedicated multipoint private line service that are capable of supporting voice, data and video communications needs. The service provides dedicated bandwidth speeds from 1.544Mbps to 10G to customer locations, data centers or cloud-based platforms Ethernet Private Line (EPL) is a reliable, more flexible, higher bandwidth alternative to traditional TDM Private Lines. It enables customers to connect their Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) using a lower cost Ethernet interface and it also allows them to use any VLANs or Ethernet control protocol across the service.
