Correct Answer by purohit_810 about 9 years 10 months ago

FOR SOHO:


Cable modem - dedicated

Dial-up - Older tech - but available everywhere

ISDN BRI- Moderately available - good HUB and Spoke - Dialup tech.


Eterprise:

Leased line - to connect branch

DSL line to connect brach by VPN tech (really we can save cost,because in leased line it increase cost dramatically).- Admin cost are there.

frame-relay line: We can save hardware cost as well as admin cost)- But this is shared bandwidth.

ATM - layer-2 tech it is also good. cell bsed. fastest tech. Rarely available.


LASER GUNS: this is very useful to connect two building networks. distance max 2 miles.This for you one time cost but it is your permanent. NO requiring cost. One time 70K cost.But it saves 10K per month. with higher bandwidth that's additinal banifit.
