PAETEC merger enhances Windstream’s capabilities.  Posted by John Leach - EVP of Business Sales on 12 1, 2011

This is a very special day for all of us at Windstream. Today we officially combine with PAETEC and welcome thousands of great customers and associates into the fold.

PAETEC strengthens Windstream in three important ways. First, PAETEC brings tremendous enterprise-level expertise and product offerings to enhance Windstream’s already robust business division. Second, PAETEC’s culture of first-rate customer care aligns nicely with our own commitment to exceptional service.

Making People, Ideas and Technology Always Accessible

About InterCall

If your business is going to be successful, the people who work for your business must have access. They need access to technology, to other people and to the ideas in their heads. It used to be that you could sit around a conference room table, talk at the water cooler or pop your head into an office and hash out an issue. Now, in a time when business is global and the whistle doesn’t blow at 5:00, not being able to reach someone isn’t an option.

The Gears That Make Your Business Move

People—co-workers, customers, prospects, vendors, partners—are what keep your business moving. People need to come together, one way or another, to talk, collaborate and gather feedback. Today, people are rarely in the same office. They’re located all around the world. But that shouldn’t be the reason they’re disconnected. InterCall brings people together by giving them access to each other beyond time zones and borders.

Great Things Happen with the Smallest of Ideas

All innovations start with someone thinking about a way to make things better, easier, more efficient. At some point, thinking needs to turn into sharing, and you have to have an outlet to do that. First it starts as a meeting with a few people, then it gets baked with a few more, then it’s reviewed with many more and then rolled out to even more. Ideas aren’t any good if they don’t have any way to get off the ground, so you need to empower people to share them quickly, easily and often.

Technology Made Simple

Access means simplicity. If people are required to learn new and complex systems, adoption will be low. In order to take advantage of your investments, you need easy-to-use collaboration tools that integrate with the technology people use every day. We partner with industry leaders and have the proven track record to integrate these technologies with any network or infrastructure. We deploy solutions on the platform you choose and get the tools in the hands of your workers so they can access the latest communication technologies easily and seamlessly, and we make this happen for small and large companies around the world.

We Deliver
With InterCall, you get everything in one place—from basic audio conferencing, collaborative web meetings and video conferencing to virtual events and unified solutions. We have offices around the world so our dedicated 24/7 service teams are always available to help you. You can count on our expert staff to consult with you and deliver the best service and features, helping you reach your business objectives.

Why InterCall
  • Generated over $1.2B in revenue (2010) and executed over 20B minutes (2010)
  • 86% of Fortune 100, 81% of the Fortune 500 and 77% of the Fortune 1000

 Ernst Communications
Our History
Incorporated in 1998, Ernest Communications has roots in the telecom industry that date back to 1984. At that time, Joseph Ernest founded Ernest Telecom, a company devoted to the design and manufacture of printed circuit boards. In 1992, Paul Masters joined Ernest Telecom, and over the course of five years held various sales leadership and senior management positions before becoming President in 1996. Coincidentally, The Telecommunications Act was signed into law in 1996, the first major overhaul to telecommunications law in more than a half century. The groundbreaking legislation was aimed at spurring innovative technology for telecom consumers by allowing all qualified companies access to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). Recognizing the opportunity to gain access to the country’s nearly 200 million local lines, Mr. Ernest and Mr. Masters co-founded Ernest Communications, Inc. and the Company quickly became one of the nation’s largest telecommunications companies dedicated exclusively to serving multi-location businesses throughout the U.S.
Mission Statement

Ernest’s Mission is to provide exceptional telecommunications service to multi-location business customers by delivering customized solutions, personalized service, and realized value.
Core Values

    We recognize that our Clients have choices when deciding whom to trust with their critical telecom needs, and we believe that our attitude should reflect our appreciation for that trust with each and every encounter, knowing that technical competence alone is insufficient. Doing the right thing, with the wrong attitude, is really doing the wrong thing.
    We believe in the power of “togetherness”, trusting that when we utilize the strengths of our fellow Ernest Teammates, as well as Clients, and Vendors that we create solutions far exceeding our individual capabilities.
    We believe that the greatest component of success, personally or corporately, is the continuous pursuit of education. When we submit ourselves to the discipline of learning, we open our minds to new ideas and new possibilities, and add greater value to our surroundings.
    We believe that each and every member of the Ernest Team should be accountable for following through with our commitments. If we are unwilling to assume responsibility for our actions, regardless of their significance, we are fundamentally incapable of serving our Clients.
    We believe that all of our activities should be performed with a high level of energy, born out of desire and motivation to exceed the expectations that others have of us, especially ourselves.

Mission Statement

Company History
Since 1994, Sidera Networks has been providing highly reliable, customized solutions to the "who's who" of carriers and businesses, with a fiber optic network that serves the Northeast, the mid-Atlantic, Chicago as well as access to Toronto and London.

In 1998, RCN Corporation acquired multiple Internet service providers, Virginia-based Erols Internet, Inc. and Boston-based UltraNet Communications to strengthen the data side of its business. Four months later, RCN added New York Interport Communications, which served 10,000 dial-up and 500 dedicated Web hosting customers and Springfield, Massachusetts-based JavaNet, Inc., which linked high schools and colleges to the Internet. As a result of the pickups, RCN became the largest ISP in the northeast and one of the ten largest in the country.

In March 2006, RCN acquired Con Edison Communications (CEC). CEC was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Consolidated Edison Inc. CEC offered a comprehensive range of transport products and services designed to serve multiple classes of customers, including carriers, Fortune 1000 corporations, small and medium businesses, and Internet, cable, wireless and video companies since1999. CEC built and operated its own fiber optic network in the New York City. With the acquisition of CEC, RCN created the subsidiary RCN Business Solutions.

In November 2007, RCN Business Solutions acquired NEON Communications. NEON owned and operated a technologically advanced fiber optic network in twelve Northeastern and mid-Atlantic states. NEON was a wholesale service provider offering high bandwidth transport services to service providers and Fortune 100 companies since 1994. With the acquisition of NEON, RCN Business Solutions became RCN Metro Optical Networks, a leading facilities-based provider of telecommunication services to enterprises and carrier customers in the Northeast, mid-Atlantic and Chicago metro.

In September 2010, RCN Metro began its next chapter as Sidera Networks! The re-launch of the Company as Sidera Networks is a result of ABRY Partners, LLC completion of the acquisition of RCN Corporation on August 26, 2010. Upon closing the transaction, RCN was no longer a publicly-traded company, and ABRY separated the Cable business from RCN Metro, so each business operates independently. This restructuring will allow Sidera to focus on its customers and maximize its potential. That same year, Sidera acquired Cross Connect Solutions, Inc. (CCS) as well as Long Island Fiber Exchange, Inc (LIFE). CCS was a carrier-neutral colocation facility operator with 28,000 square feet of space located at 401 North Broad in Philadelphia, PA. LIFE was a facilities-based provider of fiber transport services primarily on Long Island, NY with a key emphasis on providing service to K-12 school districts as well as local municipalities

•    Our customer connections are dedicated and non-oversubscribed
•    Our prices are the lowest in the industry
•    Our diversity from traditional carriers enables redundancy for customer data
•    Our simple network structure allows for rapid provisioning
•    Our ‘self-healing’ ring architecture design minimizes outages
Cogent is Smart Business Internet.

Cogent Communications is a public company trading on the NASDAQ under the symbol CCOI. Cogent is headquartered in Washington D.C.
•    History
•    Cogent started operations in 1999. Since then, it has dynamically expanded to become a top five global service provider in over 140 major markets and 26 countries.


•    Cogent began construction of a network optimized for data traffic and launched service in four initial markets in 2000. That same year, major telcos announced for the first time ever that global networks carried more data traffic than voice traffic. Cogent was perfectly positioned to step into this growing market. Today we are rapidly becoming one of the largest carriers of data traffic in the world.

Acquisition History

Although debuting at the height of the telecom industry, Cogent soon found vast market wealth eradicated and many other ISPs thrown into a state of turmoil. In a survival of the fittest competition, Cogent became the consolidator in a consolidating market. Over three brief years, Cogent completed 13 acquisitions of other flailing providers. Whether it was an entire company or just select assets, Cogent was able to acquire valuable network assets, customers, peering relationships and building access agreements for pennies on the dollar.

Among Cogent’s 13 acquisitions to date include three of the original generation Internet service providers who were pioneers in the late 1980s and early 1990s. These companies—PSINet (originally Performance Systems International), NetRail and Aleron (originally AGIS/Net99)—were the earliest providers of commercial Internet service. While these first generation ISPs made great contributions to the rapid growth and success of the Internet, their business models and networks could not keep pace with technology and market demands.

Other strategic acquisitions include assets from: Allied Riser, OnSite Access, Fiber City, Fiber Network Solutions, Applied Theory, LambdaNet France and Spain, Carrier1, Unlimited Fiber Optics, Global Access, Aleron, NTT/Verio.

Geographic Expansion History

Cogent aims to serve top tier markets where connectivity demands are highest.

At the end of 2000, we launched service in just four U.S. cities. In 2001, we completed our network rollout to 20 major U.S. cities. The next year, we expanded our network into Toronto, Canada, and also began offering Off-Net (T1/T3) services in more than 30 new markets.

In 2004, we crossed the Atlantic into Europe. We currently serve over 60 European markets and now offer Layer 2 Point-to-Point services across our international network. Our successful geographic expansion at such a rapid pace has been, in large part, due to our ability to surgically acquire the network assets we need most from financially troubled companies.

Chapter One: In the Beginning
1998 - 1999

In 1998, our founders, Jay Adelson and Al Avery, were working on a research project as facilities managers at Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC). They toiled in the basement of the R&D department, developing ideas that would later become the PAIX®*, or the Palo Alto Internet Exchange.

During this time, the Internet was expanding at an unprecedented rate. But due to its structural limitations, traffic congestion was the norm. The Internet needed to expand if it was to survive.

Early on, Adelson and Avery recognized the need to provide physical connection points where networks could interconnect. However, they knew this site needed to be run by a neutral party to avoid the competing interests of various telecommunication providers. Adelson and Avery called this neutral party a Neutral Internet Exchange (NIX).

Their business idea was simple, yet groundbreaking—create physical places for networks to exchange critical information.

In creating their new company, Adelson and Avery brought together several guiding principles—equality, neutrality, and "eliminating the middleman." Their business vision? To unite major networks and interconnect content companies. They built data centers not just for colocation but for exchanging traffic. They knew these centers would have to have world-class security and operational reliability to attract the telecommunications companies.

In April of 1998, several of Silicon Valley’s pioneer companies invested in Adelson and Avery’s vision. On June 22, 1998, Equinix was incorporated.

Soon the first-ever International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) center was built in Ashburn, Virginia. Called DC1, the data center opened on July 27, 1999. The DC1 IBX included the signature architectural elements of many of Equinix’s future centers—the mantrap, five levels of biometric security, and the red silo.

* PAIX is a registered trademark of Switch & Data Facilities Co., Inc.

Chapter Two: Growth
1999 - 2000

In 1999, the Equinix management team was coming together and their primary goal was to help Equinix attract networks. The company goal was to open IBX centers in 40 cities in two years.

Equinix attracted networks by “matchmaking” with content companies. An early victory occurred when Equinix brought in two major networks—AT&T and UUNet.

During this time, the Internet continued to expand at breakneck speed, but it was still inefficient, causing major slowdowns. To better handle the growth of the Internet, seven major networks planned to join forces and interconnect with each other under one data center provider’s roof. They chose Equinix. Once the major networks established a Point of Presence (PoP) in Equinix centers, content companies began to come to Equinix in droves, looking to reach the eyeballs of the major network customers.

In April of 2000, SV1 was opened. In August of 2000, the Equinix IPO raised over $270 million.

Chapter Three: Survivor
2001 - 2002

As the dot-com bubble burst, the entire industry was sent into a tailspin. Many telecommunications companies left the colocation data center business. Equinix stayed true to its original business and proved to be one of the few survivors.

Having just opened the largest data center in the industry, the company was in a tenuous position. By the second half of 2002, the economy showed signs of recovery. In December 2002, Equinix restructured its business to gain financial stability and acquired Pihana Pacific and i-STT, two network-neutral data center providers serving the Asia-Pacific region.

By December of 2002, company debt was restructured, and Equinix set out on a growth plan.

Chapter Four: Rebirth
2003 - 2004

Experts say Equinix survived the dot-com meltdown for one reason: if it shut down, the information economy itself would be compromised. The seven major networks that joined forces to choose Equinix data centers to create an interconnection hub, and their customers, helped sustain the company for the long run.

Equinix began to expand by purchasing the data centers left behind by the telecommunication companies that abandoned the data center business during the dot-com bust. In October 2003, Equinix subleased a data center located in Santa Clara, California. In April 2004, Equinix signed a long-term lease for an additional 95,000 square feet of data center space adjacent to its Washington DC IBX Center. That same month, Equinix acquired a 103,000 square foot data center in San Jose, California.

In 2003 and 2004, Equinix was the best performing stock on the NASDAQ.

Chapter Five: Expansion
2005 - 2007

By 2005, Equinix was aggressively growing. The company leased seven new data centers. But by 2006, the market had settled and customers’ requirements for colocation and interconnection were changing. The company began to build the next generation of IBX centers, better suited to handle new high power density operations. In the same year, Equinix opened new IBX centers in Chicago, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles.

2007 was an even bigger year. In January, the company acquired an expansion data center in Tokyo. In February, a significant investment allowed incremental expansion of the Singapore IBX. In March, a new IBX was built on the Washington DC area campus. And in June, Equinix purchased a site for a new data center in the Los Angeles market and announced the expansion of SV2 IBX.

That same month, the company shared its intention to acquire IXEurope, a leading provider of colocation services in Europe. In September, the IXEurope deal was finalized, strengthening Equinix’s position as the world’s leading global data center and interconnection provider.

BROADBAND in telecom refers to a method of signaling; including or handling a wide range (or band) of frequencies, which may be divided into channels or frequency bins.
Broadband is always a relative term, understood according to its context. The wider the bandwidth, the greater the ability to carry information. In radio, a  narrow-band signal will carry only Morse code; a broader band will carry speech; and a still broader band is necessary for music .

A "normal" TV antenna may be able to receive a certain range of channels. A "broadband" antenna will receivemany  more channels. In data communications, an analog modem will transmit a bandwidth of 56 kbps over a phone line. Over the same  line, ADSL technology can deliver bandwidth of several megabits per second, which is described as broadband (relative to a modem over a phone line, but much less than over a fiber optic circuit).


Broadband in data can refer to broadband networks or broadband Internet and may have the same meaning as above, so that data transmission over a fiber optic cable would be referred to as broadband as compared to a telephone modem operating at 56 kbps. A world-wide standard for what level of bandwidth and network speeds actually constitute Broadband has not been determined.

Broadband in data communications is  used in a more technical sense to refer to data transmission where multiple pieces of data are sent simultaneously to increase the effective rate of transmission, regardless of data signaling rate. In network engineering, this term is used for methods where two or more signals share a medium.


The various forms of digital subscriber line (DSL) services are broadband in the sense that digital information is sent over a high-bandwidth channel (located above the baseband voice channel on a single pair of wires).[2]
[edit] In Ethernet

A baseband transmission sends one type of signal using a medium's full bandwidth, as in 100BASE-T Ethernet. Ethernet, however, is the common interface to broadband modems such as DSL data links, and has a high data rate itself, so is sometimes referred to as broadband. Ethernet provided over cable modem is a common alternative to DSL.

T1 Connection – T1 Carrier

Existing frequency-division multiplexing carrier systems worked well for connections between distant cities, but required expensive modulators, demodulators and filters for every voice channel. For connections within metropolitan areas, Bell Labs in the late 1950s sought cheaper terminal equipment. Pulse-code modulation allowed sharing a coder and decoder among several voice trunks, so this method was chosen for the T1 system introduced into local use in 1961. In later decades, the cost of digital electronics declined to the point that an individual codec per voice channel became commonplace, but by then the other advantages of digital transmission had become entrenched.

The most common legacy of this system is the line rate speeds. “T1? now means any data circuit that runs at the original 1.544 Mbit/s line rate. Originally the T1 format carried 24 pulse-code modulated, time-division multiplexed speech signals each encoded in 64 kbit/s streams, leaving 8 kbit/s of framing information which facilitates the synchronization and demultiplexing at the receiver. T2 and T3 circuit channels carry multiple T1 channels multiplexed, resulting in transmission rates of 6.312 and 44.736 Mbit/s, respectively.

Supposedly, the 1.544 Mbit/s rate was chosen because tests done by AT&T Long Lines in Chicago were conducted underground. To accommodate loading coils, cable vault manholes were physically 2000 meter (6,600 ft) apart, and so the optimum bit rate was chosen empirically — the capacity was increased until the failure rate was unacceptable, then reduced to leave a margin. Companding allowed acceptable audio performance with only seven bits per PCM sample in this original T1/D1 system. The later D3 and D4 channel banks had an extended frame format, allowing eight bits per sample, reduced to seven every sixth sample or frame when one bit was “robbed” for signaling the state of the channel. The standard does not allow an all zero sample which would produce a long string of binary zeros and cause the repeaters to lose bit sync. However, when carrying data (Switched 56) there could be long strings of zeroes, so one bit per sample is set to “1? (jam bit 7) leaving 7 bits x 8,000 frames per second for data.

A more common understanding of how the rate of 1.544 Mbit/s was achieved is as follows. (This explanation glosses over T1 voice communications, and deals mainly with the numbers involved.) Given that the highest voice frequency which the telephone system transmits is 4,000 Hz, the required digital sampling rate is 8,000 Hz (see Nyquist rate). Since each T1 frame contains 1 byte of voice data for each of the 24 channels, that system needs then 8,000 frames per second to maintain those 24 simultaneous voice channels. Because each frame of a T1 is 193 bits in length (24 channels X 8 bits per channel + 1 framing bit = 193 bits), 8,000 frames per second is multiplied by 193 bits to yield a transfer rate of 1.544 Mbit/s (8,000 X 193 = 1,544,000).

Initially, T1 used Alternate Mark Inversion (AMI) to reduce frequency bandwidth and eliminate the DC component of the signal. Later B8ZS became common practice. For AMI, each mark pulse had the opposite polarity of the previous one and each space was at a level of zero, resulting in a three level signal which however only carried binary data. Similar British 23 channel systems at 1.536 Mbaud in the 1970s were equipped with ternary signal repeaters, in anticipation of using a 3B2T or 4B3T code to increase the number of voice channels in future, but in the 1980s the systems were merely replaced with European standard ones. American T-carriers could only work in AMI or B8ZS mode.

The AMI or B8ZS signal allowed a simple error rate measurement. The D bank in the central office could detect a bit with the wrong polarity, or “bipolarity violation” and sound an alarm. Later systems could count the number of violations and reframes and otherwise measure signal quality and allow a more sophisticated alarm indication signal system.

The decision to use a 193-bit frame was made in 1958, during the early stages of T1 system design. To allow for the identification of information bits within a frame, two alternatives were considered. Assign (a) just one extra bit, or (b) additional 8 bits per frame. The 8-bit choice is cleaner, resulting in a 200-bit frame, 25 8-bit

channels, of which 24 are traffic and 1 8-bit channel available for operations, administration, and maintenance (OA&M). AT&T chose the single bit per frame not to reduce the required bit rate (1.544 vs 1.6 Mbit/s), but because AT&T Marketing worried that “if 8 bits were chosen for OA&M function, someone would then try to sell this as a voice channel and you wind up with nothing.”

Soon after commercial success of T1 in 1962, the T1 engineering team realized the mistake of having only one bit to serve the increasing demand for housekeeping functions. They petitioned AT&T management to change to 8-bit framing. This was flatly turned down because it would make installed systems obsolete.

Having this hindsight, some ten years later, CEPT chose 8 bits for framing the European E1.

Higher T

In the late 1960s and early 1970s Bell Labs developed higher rate systems. T-1C with a more sophisticated modulation scheme carried 3 Mbit/s, on those balanced pair cables that could support it. T-2 carried 6.312 Mbit/s, requiring a special low-capacitance cable with foam insulation. This was standard for Picturephone. T 4 and T-5 used coaxial cables, similar to the old L-carriers used by AT&T Long Lines. TD microwave radio relay systems were also fitted with high rate modems to allow them to carry a DS1 signal in a portion of their FM spectrum that had too poor quality for voice service. Later they carried DS3 and DS4 signals. Later optical fiber, typically using SONET transmission scheme, overtook them.

Digital Signal

DS1 signals are interconnected typically at Central Office locations at a common metallic cross-connect point known as a DSX-1. A DS1 signal at a DSX-1 is measured typically at 6 Volts Peak-to-peak (0dBdsx signal level at 772 kHz Nyquist) at plus or minus 1.2 volts to permit easy interconnection of DS1 equipment NCI Code=04DS9/ /). When a DS1 is transported over metallic outside plant cable, the signal travels over conditioned cable pairs known as a T1 span. A T1 span can have up to -130 Volts of DC power superimposed on the associated four wire cable pairs to line or “Span” power line repeaters, and T1 NIU’s (T1 Smartjacks). T1 span repeaters are typically engineered up to 6,000 feet apart, depending on cable gauge, and at no more than 36 dB of loss before requiring a repeated span. There can be no cable bridge taps across any pairs.

T1 copper spans are being replaced by optical transport systems, but if a copper (Metallic) span is used, the T1 is typically carried over an HDSL encoded copper line. Four wire HDSL does not require as many repeaters as conventional T1 spans. Newer two wire HDSL (HDSL-2) equipment transports a full 1.54400 Mbit/s T1 over a single copper wire pair up to approximately twelve thousand (12,000) feet (3.5 km), if all 24 gauge cable is used. HDSL-2 does not employ repeaters as does conventional four wire HDSL, or newer HDSL-4 systems.

One advantage of HDSL is its ability to operate with a limited number of bridge taps, with no tap being closer than 500 feet from any HDSL transceiver. Both two or four wire HDSL equipment transmits and receives over the same cable wire pair, as compared to conventional T1 service that utilizes individual cable pairs for transitor receive.

DS3 signals are rare except within buildings, where they are used for interconnections and as an intermediate step before being muxed onto a SONET circuit. This is because a T3 circuit can only go about 600 feet (180m) between repeaters. A customer who orders a DS3 usually receives a SONET circuit run into the building and a multiplexer mounted in a utility box. The DS3 is delivered in its familiar form, two coax cables (1 for send and 1 for receive) with BNC connectors on the end

•    Flexibility of call-by-call service greatly increases trunking efficiency.
•    Eliminated cost of individual dedicated circuits.
•    Increased call handling efficiency associated with calling line identification.
•    Back-up configuration provides added protection and communications reliability.
•    Clear digital transmission of voice and data communications.
•    Rapid call set-up.
•    Ability to provision bandwidth on demand - with compatible CPE.
•    Enhanced security for dial up connecting with call number configuration.
•    Restricted number acceptance
•    Advanced call routing and call handling features.
•    Widely available service as it operates on the same PSTN that telephones do.
•    Standards based product offering.
•    Lines can be added easily & cost effectively.
•    Channels within lines can be dynamically allocated to the devices that need them most giving customers more flexibility.

Two-way digital trunks: Unlike existing PCM trunks, in PRI, all the channels are digital and two-way, enabling dynamic seizure of the trunks according to load times (without need for any change in the public switch), a feature that makes it possible to reduce the number of trunks and enables optimum usage at all times.
Fast clearing of trunks: When a trunk identifies a cause that prevents call setup (engaged signal, blocked trunks, etc.) it immediately frees itself to respond to another request for call setup. The release immediate, even if the subscriber does not hang up immediately (while sending a local busy signal by the private switchboard).
Priority call setup: Setting up a call in this manner usually occurs when the requested channel is not available. The network offers an alternate channel so that the outgoing call will be transferred to the alternate channel on the same beam, in a way that increases the chances for rapid call setup, and increasing the number of calls that are successfully completed. Setting up a call in this manner is transparent to the user and is carried out while ensuring that there is no circumvention of dialing restrictions.
Optimum usage of the channels: This significant advantage is achieved by combining the advantages described above (two-way digital channels, rapid trunk clearance and priority call setup), together with rapid call setup and efficient redial. This combination enables better utilization of the trunk, which is immediately available for many more calls, and is added to the two-way feature of the trunks, so that together, they contribute to the correct and optimal usage of the channels according to load times.
Caller's number to and from the network: PRI enables identification and display of the number of the subscriber calling from the network on the telephone screen, as well as on the call record machine. In addition, the number of the subscriber calling the network from the private switchboard is sent; the number can be the organization’s lead number (in internal direct dialing) or the subscriber's direct number, unlike the existing situation, where the subscriber's direct number cannot be sent to the network. At this stage, this feature depends on the type of public switchboard to which the customer is connected.including point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, linear, protected paths, Concatenated and channelized services are provided.

 Voice over IP

VoIP (voice over IP) a set of facilities used to manage the delivery of voice over the Internet. VoIP involves sending voice information in digital form in discrete packets instead of using the traditional circuit-committed protocols of the public switched telephone network (PSTN). Ne big advantage of VoIP and Internet telephony is that it avoids tolls charged by traditional telephone service.

VoIP is derived from the VoIP Forum, an initiative by major equipment manufacturers, such as Cisco, VocalTec, 3Com, and Netspeak to promote the use of ITU-T H.323, which is the standard for sending voice (audio) and video using IP on the public Internet and within an intranet. The Forum also promotes the user of directory service standards so that users can find other users and the use of touch-tone signals for automatic call distribution and voice mail.

In addition to IP, VoIP utilizes real-time protocol (RTP) ensuring that packets get delivered in a timely way. Currently, using public networks, it is difficult to guarantee Quality of Service (QoS). Better service is possible with private networks managed by an enterprise or by an Internet telephony service provider (ITSP).

A technique used, to help ensure faster packet delivery is to use ping to contact all possible network gateway computers that have access to the public network and choose the fastest path before establishing a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) sockets connection with the other end.

To use VoIP, an enterprise places a "VoIP device" at a gateway. The gateway receives packetized voice transmissions from internal users and then routes them to other segments of its intranet (LAN or WAN) or, using a T-carrier system or E-carrier interface, sends them over the public switched telephone network.

Hosted VoIP

A voice over Internet (VoIP) service that is provided by a third party for businesses with a small to medium number of phones. All calls are transported over the Internet, and telephone functions such as voicemail, call routing and call forwarding are performed on the provider's computers. Administration is handled via a Web interface.

Calls can be made and received using regular phones with adapters, IP phones or computers. A hosted VoIP service provides a "virtual IP PBX" for an organization without requiring a physical PBX

Reasons to deply a Hosted VoIP solution

 Wireless Services

Wireless is a term used to describe telecommunications where electromagnetic waves, instead of a physical wire, carry the signal over some, or all of the communication path.

WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) are communication protocols that standardize the way wireless devices, such as cell phones and radio transceivers, are used for Internet access, including e-mail, the Web, newsgroups, and instant messaging. While Internet access has been possible in the past, different manufacturers have used different technologies. In the future, devices and service systems that use WAP will be able to interoperate.

WAP layers are:
* Wireless Application Environment (WAE)
* Wireless Session Layer (WSL)
* Wireless Transport Layer Security (WTLS)
* Wireless Transport Layer (WTP)

The WAP was conceived by four companies: Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia, and Unwired Planet (now The Wireless Markup Language (WML) is used to create pages that can be delivered using WAP. Besides WAP, There are other industry standards, including i-Mode; the world's first "smart phone" for Web browsing, (providing color & Video) introduced first in Japan.

Wireless categories:

Fixed: wireless devices or systems in homes and offices, and in particular; equipment connected to the Internet via modems

Mobile: wireless devices or systems aboard moving vehicles;

Portable: autonomous, battery-powered wireless devices or systems outside the office, home, or vehicle; such as; handheld cell phones and PCS units

IR: devices that convey data via infrared radiation; employed in certain limited-range communications and control systems

The first wireless transmitters went on the air early in the 20th century using Morse code. Later, as modulation made it possible to transmit voices via wireless, the medium came to be called "radio." With the advent of television, fax, data communication, and the effective use of a larger portion of the spectrum, the term "wireless" has been resurrected.
Common examples of wireless equipment in use today include: Cell phones and pagers, Global Positioning System (GPS) Cordless computer peripherals, Cordless telephone sets, Home-entertainment-system control boxes, Remote garage-door openers, Two-way radios, Baby monitors, Satellite television, Wireless LANs or local area networks.

More specialized and exotic examples of wireless communications and control include:

• Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) --the de facto wireless telephone standard in Europe
• General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) -- a packet-based wireless communication service that provides continuous connection to the Internet for mobile phone and computer users
• Enhanced Data GSM Environment (EDGE) -- a faster version of the Global System for Mobile (GSM) wireless service
• Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) -- a broadband, packet-based system offering a consistent set of services to mobile computer and phone users no matter    where they are located in the world.

WiMAX   by Michael Hallinan

WiMAX stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access. The term WiMAX is the commercial name for the 802.16e-2005 protocol established by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). WiMAX uses a modulation technique called Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), which was first developed for high frequency military communications systems during the 1950s. The name was assigned by the WiMAX Forum, which describes WiMAX as "a standards -based technology enabling the delivery of last-mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL."

802.11 WiFi Primer
WiFi is often confused with WiMAX. Unlike WiMAX, WiFi (802. 1 1) is comprised of three versions known as 802. 1 la, 802.11b, and 802.1Ig. The first version, 802.11a, operates on the 5GHz band and is typically used to install longer range connections because the signal suffers less interference. The other versions, 802.11b and 802.1Ig, operate on the 2.4GHz band and suffer interference from other household devices such as cordless phones and microwave ovens. These later "b" and "g" versions are the common variety that you might purchase at a retail store and plug into your home network. The 802 . 1 Ig version has the longest distance and uses OFDM technology similar to WiMAX. An additional version, 802.1In, will offer even greater distances and speeds, but ratification by the IEEE has been delayed to late 2008.

802.16 WiMAX Primer
As mentioned earlier, the WiMAX standard is based on the 802.16e-2005 protocol. In short, think of WiMAX as "WiFi on steroids" due to its increased coverage area over WiFi and low deployment costs compared to 3G networks. By comparison, a typical WiFi router can blanket a small house with wireless coverage while a WiMAX transmitter can potentially blanket an entire city (more than 20 miles) with broadband coverage.

Deploying Wireless Networks
Planning wireless networks is an art and a science. All wireless technologies are based on simple principles such as frequency modulation (think AM vs. FM radio), power (more power equals more distance), terrain (line of site vs. buildings), availability of quality frequencies (interference vs. access), and security (open vs. closed). The successful deployment of new wireless networks must strike a careful balance of technology (WiMAX), suitable power output, available frequencies, and careful placement of the transmitters in order to maximize coverage and quality, yet minimize costs.

Corporate Stakeholders

As WiMAX technology is adopted in the global marketplace, it is important to understand that there are major corporate stakeholders that want this technology to succeed. Nobody cares more about the success of WiMAX than Intel, which hopes to create unlimited demand and new markets for its embedded wireless chips within the new WiMAX "ecosystem." It is a leader in the WiMAX Forum, which is comprised of 420 members including chip makers, hardware manufacturers, network operators, and service providers. The organization's purpose is to "certify and promote the compatibility and interoperability of broadband wireless products based upon the harmonized IEEE 802.16/ETSI HiperMAN (High Performance Radio Metropolitan Area Network) standard."

Standardization of the 802.16e will ensure interoperability while increasing competition among hardware manufacturers and driving down hardware prices for the consumer. As WiMAX is adopted on a global scale, competition is expected to rise, which will cause hardware prices to fall and exacerbate demand.

Global momentum for WiMAX is notably strong and growing. In the United States, Clearwire launched in 2003 and now operates in 39 domestic markets and four international markets, offering 1 .5Mbps download and up to 256Kbps upload speeds. Last fall, Sprint Nextel also announced that it plans to develop and deploy the first 4G nationwide broadband mobile network based on Mobile WiMAX. The infrastructure costs will be $1 billion in 2007 and $1 .5-$2 billion in 2008.

Most recently, Intel announced that it will begin to provide WiMAX cards for notebooks during 2008. More than 20 WiMAX deployments are under development internationally as well.

WiMAX Characteristics

WiMAX offers maximum data transfer rates of 50Mbps, offering sustained user data rates of 0.5-2Mbps, allowing for simultaneous transfer of data (including high definition imagery), voice over IP (VoIP), and streaming video. This technology also provides effective services at distances of three to five miles for mobile users (without a direct line of sight). A distance of 20 miles or more is expected for lineof-sight connections.

Data-transmission speed is subject to many factors including bandwidth, number of other users, distance from base station, and network configuration. The WiMAX Forum suggests "working" peak data rates of up to 15Mbps in 5MHz are achievable.

Frequency Considerations

Much debate is warranted on how governments allocate "airwaves" or frequency spectrum, and unfortunately, the topic is beyond the scope of this article, but the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has identified the 2.3, 2.5, and 3.5GHz bands for international broadband wireless access. Additionally, the 5.8GHz band is also often considered for WiMAX use, but normally on an unlicensed basis, which often translates into interference from other devices. Nevertheless, since 70% of the globally issued WiMAX licenses are for the 3.5MHz spectrum, and the United States is backing 2.5MHz services, these bands are likely to see the greatest initial benefits in scale.

WiMAX Positioning

In the United States, WiMAX is likely to enjoy greater frequency utilization and lower royalty overheads as compared to 3G networks. As a result, WiMAX is able to offer less expensive deployments and lower voice and data prices for the consumer. In short, WiMAX is likely to provide elements of converged networks (voice, data, IPTV) while bridging the gap between broadband wired networks (fiber, cable, DSL) and costly 3G networks (requiring more network elements). In the United States, WiMAX services will compete most directly with 3G services due to their favorable price-performance ratio, and with DSL or cable networks where the wired infrastructure is limited due to terrain (rural or isolated areas).


Imagine if everyone had an unlimited data package on their PDA and the speed is limited to 512Kbps to 1 .5Mbps. Some users pay per megabyte and others will pay a flat fee. What applications may develop and how might they impact streaming media? The list below is intended to offer some possibilities. Many of these applications were used for military purposes as well as some social purposes in Iraq. Add some imagination and you'll see that the possibilities are endless.

Initially, fixed VoIP services are likely to be available in urban areas . WiMAXs ability to accomplish handoff and low latency, as well as guarantee service quality via traffic prioritization suggests it meets all the requirements for a wireless voice network. Versatile handsets are likely to route traffic over WiFi, WiMAX, or cellular networks based on availability.

This also means that WiMAX can be used to stream radio or directions to a device enabled with Mobile WiMAX.

WiMAX lends itself well to the delivery of multimedia content. Video clips can be delivered to mobile handsets, and files can be exchanged in mobile peer-to-peer forums.

Video teleconferencing and "personal broadcasting" are now a possibility with broadband point-to-point connections that bypass internet congestion.

Visual displays (movie trailers or product demonstrations) can be modified citywide in real time to capture the imagination of an audience of one or one hundred viewers.


Broadband upload capability now means that users can contribute to communities in new ways using video, photography, and voice. Devices suchas phones, cameras, and PDAs can share content in real time.


By combining GPS and WiMAX devices, new applications can be developed to derive value from geographical marketing, predictable behaviors, and community interests.

Aerial video surveillance is now a reality as public officials can monitor events using unmanned airplanes and a network of wireless video cameras delivering realtime video to a control station several miles away.


A sensor network is a network of devices (with built-in detection tools) that can exchange information, and gain situational awareness of other nodes in the network in order to act intelligently and collaboratively. Sensor networks offer valuable transportation, marketing, and security applications.

New media platforms can be used to capture and share community broadcast content for a given event, such as a sporting event, concert, or graduation.

Some critics may say that WiMAX is still unproven on a wide scale, but the trends toward commercialization - global adoption, low hardware prices, large corporate backing, and favorable price-performance ratio - are all evident. I believe it will be widely adopted where it is needed most - in developing areas lacking a reliable copper infrastructure.

It will definitely have a direct impact on streaming media and the development of applications that corporations, communities, and individuals will use to deliver information, entertainment, and advertising in the future.

One of the few benefits of being part of the military conflict in Iraq is the opportunity to test and evaluate new technologies. In 2005,Wireless broadband networks was deployed  utilizing technology similar to "Mobile WiMAX" in and around the city of Fallujah during Operation Al Fajr. These networks offered fast installation and a robust communications platform for voice, data, and video applications in an environment  and terrain not suited for wired networks.

Historically, defense technology that has been transferred to the civilian sector has changed much of how the world works. The wireless broadband technology coming out of this war will continue that tradition and have a significant impact on many industries, including streaming media.

 is moving or placing things together, sometimes implying a proper order. On the Internet, this term (usually spelled "Colocation") refers to the provisioning of space for a customer's communications equipment within the service provider's premises. A server, usually a Web server, that is located at a dedicated facility designed with resources which include a secured cage or cabinet, regulated power, dedicated Internet connection, security and support.

These co-location facilities offer the customer a secure place to physically house their hardware and equipment as opposed to locating it in their offices or warehouse where the potential for fire, theft or vandalism is much greater.

Most co-location facilities offer high-security, including cameras, fire detection and extinguishing devices, multiple connection feeds, filtered power, backup power generators and other items to ensure high-availability which is mandatory for all Web-based, virtual businesses.

Co-location sites are being erected at various points around the world to provide services to the rapidly expanding Web hosting and e-commerce marketplace.

The term co-location is also known as colo.

Colocation is sometimes provided by companies that specialize in Web site hosting, which is the business of housing, serving, and maintaining files for one or more web sites. The owner of a Web site can place the site's servers on the premises of an Internet service provider (ISP). The customer places their servers in a data center (sometimes spelled datacenter) which is a centralized repository, either physical or virtual, for the storage, management, and dissemination of data and information relating to a specific interest. The National Climatic Data Center, for example, is a public data center that maintains the world's largest archive of weather information.

A private data center may exist within an organization's facilities or may be maintained as a specialized facility. Every organization has some sort of a data center, although it might be referred to as a server room or even a computer closet. In that sense, data center may be synonymous with network operations center (NOC), a restricted access area containing automated systems that constantly monitor server activity, Web traffic, and network performance.

A carrier hotel provides colocation on a massive scale, offering various services to customers ranging from modest-sized racks to dedicated rooms or groups of rooms. All the major Telecom carriers are collocated in carrier hotels. Some carrier hotels offer hardware and software installation, as well as other managed services. A carrier hotel may also house a meeting room where representatives of all the companies or guests served by the facility can exchange ideas and information.

    Advantages of Verizon Wireless 4G LTE in Rural America

    The performance and capabilities of 4G LTE will be unmatched in the marketplace, allowing customers to do things never before possible in a wireless environment. Consider some of the advantages that Verizon Wireless’ implementation of 4G LTE will provide:

        * HIGHER DATA RATES: With Verizon Wireless’ 10 + 10 MHz implementation, LTE will be supporting average data rates per user of 5-12 Mbps in the forward link, and 2-5 Mbps in the reverse link. Both maximum and average LTE data rates are significantly higher in the reverse and forward links than those supported by existing 3G networks. LTE will enable video application on the downlink as well as uplink – including, but not limited to video-sharing, surveillance, conferencing and streaming in higher definition than is possible with existing 3G technology today.
        * COVERAGE: Verizon Wireless’ deployment of LTE in the premier 700 MHz spectrum provides coverage and in-building penetration advantages over existing 3G technologies (and other 4G competitive implementations deployed at higher frequency bands). This enhanced in-building coverage/penetration will make indoor applications even more powerful.

    The advanced radio characteristics of LTE address several issues that have traditionally crippled cellular wireless, including multipath and multiuser interference. LTE’s use of Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) and multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) in the downlink transmission effectively eliminates intra-cell multiuser interference and minimizes inter-cell multiuser interference thereby maximizing performance. Similarly, the single carrier frequency-division multiple access (SC-FDMA) uplink transmission allows for user equipment to transmit low power signals without the need for expensive power amplifiers. Improvement in battery power consumption in end-user devices (UEs) is a side-benefit of the coverage and multipath/power performance advantages offered by LTE.

        * LATENCY: The user plane latency achieved in LTE is approximately one-fourth the corresponding latency in existing 3G technologies, providing a direct service advantage for highly immersive and interactive application environments, such as multiplayer gaming and rich multimedia communications.

        * SIMULTANEOUS USER SUPPORT: LTE provides the ability to perform two-dimensional resource scheduling (in time and frequency), allowing support of multiple users in a time slot, resulting in a much better always-on experience while enabling the proliferation of embedded wireless applications/systems. In contrast, existing 3G technology performs one-dimensional scheduling, which limits service to one user for each timeslot.

        * SECURITY: LTE provides enhanced security through the implementation of Universal Integrated Circuit Card (UICC) Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) and the associated robust and non-invasive key storage and symmetric key authentication using 128-bit private keys. LTE additionally incorporates strong mutual authentication, user identity confidentiality, integrity protection of all signaling messages between UE and Mobility Management Entity (MME) and optional multi-level bearer data encryption.

        * SIMPLIFIED WORLDWIDE ROAMING: Verizon Wireless’ chosen migration path to LTE, the widely adopted next-generation 3GPP standard, will provide the greatest opportunities for seamless international roaming.

        * MASS DEPLOYMENT: LTE’s inherent support for Internet Protocol version 6 (IPV6) addressing and International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI)-based identifiers makes mass deployments of machine-to-machine applications over LTE possible.
