Alternatively referred to as a DS3 (Digital Signal 3), a T3 is a leased data communications lines capable of transmitting a digital signal at 44.746 megabits per second. Originally developed by Bell Labs, they are often used for companies requiring medium amounts of bandwidth or as a backbone. The cable is made of 75-ohm coaxial cable, that attaches using BNC connectors.
Features of T3 lines
- Lines are dedicated, which means you are not sharing your connection with others.
- Because it is a dedicated line, it is a much more secure connection.
- Lines are synchronous, which means you get the same download and upload speed.
