What is a Leased Line?
Strictly Speaking, a Leased Line is any form of private telecoms circuit, linking a site to either the Internet, or to another site.
Unlike broadband, Leased Lines usually run at a symmetrical speed (same upload as download), and are un-contended (no sharing of bandwidth).
Telecom providers supply Leased Lines with a Service Level Guarantee (SLG, or SLA), and enhanced maintenance cover, which makes them ideal for organisations that need a reliable, always on service, and for those businesses requiring high speed data transfer.

What types of Leased Line are there?
Leased Lines come in lots of shapes and sizes.
An Internet Leased line connects a single site to the Internet, providing beyond-broadbandquality and speed. Internet Leased lines are usually provided over Ethernet Fibre, with a lower cost, limited bandwidth option over EFM (Ethernet First Mile), which uses bonded copper pairs for the last leg of the circuit.
For those organisations that want to connect multi-sites together, a host of options and delivery methods are available.
MPLS (multi protocol label switching), is a service that allows different types of connectivity and bandwidth size to interconnect into a network whilst prioritizing data and voice traffic. This is ideal for organisations that have sites of different size and geographic location.
If the sites in question have a high bandwidth requirement, and are less than 35km apart, then a LAN extension circuit
(e.g. Short Haul Data Service)
is the best solution, as they allow the connected sites to act as though they are on the same LAN.
