Few consumers understand the logistics of building a network that can service a house, let alone a neighborhood. When you consider the various topologies or methods of data delivery, one can see benefits of certain types of transmission immediately. Due to these benefits, many existing carriers are converting their networks to a type of ethernet broadband in the hope to increase their speed, dependability and customer base.
Many cable TV based internet networks work on something which is known as a token ring. Your data has a token which is virtually encased in it. Much like at a re-gifting party, your data is passed around until it finds a proper match. The only problem is that it has to do this in an order, and that takes time.
Wouldn’t it be great if you had a direct path between you and your destination? Ethernet based networks work on this promise. It allows direct transmission of data. This allows for speed. Broadband allows for larger packets of data to be transmitted directly to you. Based on these two aspects, it may seem that a broadband is a good deal.
Here is the catch. Ethernet was designed to primarily transmit across 8 wires for short distances. Most buildings only have telephone wires entering, and few other opportunities for other mediums for internet. Luckily as technology advances, we now have the ability to adapt ethernet to transmit across 2 wires that your telephone line normally operates on.
Now, not all service providers can give this service in all areas. Many have seen the limitations of DSL and know they need a solution for the future. Many areas are trying this technology, so one is advisable to search with normal providers, and see if they may have included your neighborhood as a potential connection solution.
One nice point for carriers is that this methodology harnesses on existing lines and lessen the cost of installing fiber optics or other lines of communication. By changing equipment at a switching center and at the destination, a simple process can allow for a marked increase in quality and speed.
For consumers, understand that if you have DSL you would have to change your modem. Your router would work normally. The quality of your phone lines is important as well. Like with anything, the connection has to be good to enable the best possible performance. This type of connection does not alleviate storm related problems, so if you have seen issues due to moisture or what have you in your city, this is not a magic wand that makes it go away.
If you are looking for a new, higher quality connection search out ethernet broadband and see if it is available in your area. It might be a great solution for your home or business needs. It might require slight changes, but it should be better than any other connection method. If you need more information, check with a local provider to help educate you on the ins and outs of networking for your specific needs.
