How does the Service work?
Telecom decision-makers and business IT professionals who are in the market for OC3, OC12, OC48, or OC192 service all face the same challenge: finding a carrier who can actually provide the service in their specific geography at the best possible price point. As you have probably noticed, sourcing a new OC-x provider is not as easy as opening up the Yellow Pages and calling an electrician. General serviceability is sensitive to geography because carriers’ prices depend on whether they have already invest in the OCx infrastructure and equipment necessary to service your business.
What Can I Expect?
But before we go very far down the road with OC3 (up to 155Mbps), OC12 (up to 622Mbps), OC48 (up to 2.5Gbps), or OC192 pricing (up to 9.6Gbps), be prepared to discuss Ethernet, which now offers speeds as high a 40Gb on a single strand of fiber. Since Ethernet is still very limited in its geographic availability, there is a high probability that OC-x will be your only option.
So, before we call, know that we’ll have a series of discovery questions for you:
1. How many people will be accessing the internet using this connection?
2. Are there governmental policies associated with the way you transport and handle your customer’s sensitive information?
3. How many Class-C static IP address blocks do you need?
4. What is the hourly productivity cost if your OC-x service goes down?
5. Why do you need this much bandwidth?
6. Is this connection part of a larger network?
7. Is this a backup or primary data connection?
With this information we'll be able to check the geographic availability of each of our Tier 1 providers as well as many respected resellers. Our OC48 Providers experts will use a technology that we call "GeoQuote", a patented software that queries service providers in one easy-to-use interface. Once we know which providers are “in the game”, we’ll then send our quote team out to obtain the best price, since most high-end quotes are still done the old fashioned way.
