I've been searching all night for good documentation on circuits and have failed horribly. Could anyone point me in the right direction to some good docs? Basically, I've got an OC3 pipe at work and I was thinking about linking a dedicated circuit at home for off hours communication and I'd really like to understand how it all works.. I was thinking frame relay, but if it's going to be more of a headache with the switches and telco I could opt for a DS1. Thanks in advance.
IF you are looking for a Work from Home connection and that to a high speed ones, you may want to consider a Ethernet Connection from a local last mile Metro service provider in your area. Then you dont have to invest in a router at your side for termination and stuff, and its pretty much easy to implement and operate a a end user.
There should be handful of local or regional ISP's in your locale who provide last mile ethernet P2P circuits.
But that would defeat the concept of already having bandwidth at hand, ready to redistribute no? Whether this works out for me or not I would still like to find some good documentation on this. Thanks in advance.
Maybe what I'm asking isn't possible. I'm not really sure to be honest, I'm only CCNA and at my level I am thirsting for knowledge. That's why I always ask for documentation rather than help.. =/ I was reading up on DSL access in the Cisco docs, maybe that would suit me better. Anyway I'm just trying to learn how circuits are provisioned, I used to work for a CLEC and don't understand why we still had to involve other Telco's. What I'm really after is the nitty gritty from the telephone pole all the way back to the Internet Provider.
from the dmarc to the pole, what exactly takes place on the wire
from the provider to the telco, what information is sent
from the provider, how everything is routed over the wire, by telephone number?
Thank you for the response, i give it an A+. ;) In the beginning i was basically asking how to setup a ppp connection from work to home utilizing the bandwidth that's already there, almost making the office act as an internet provider. In asking i wasn't sure how the PPP connection could be established without going through the telco.. And that's why i said maybe the DSL option was a better route. I've been looking into the 6000 and 3600 series routers with DSLAM modules installed, this would work activating my own connection over a POTS line no? Or would i still have to get the telco involved? That's what confuses me. I think if I had the equipment and manual in front of me I might be able to answer that, but being a broke student it's almost impossible. =] Thank you for your time and input, I really appreciate it.
To get DSL or any other high speed ciruit to your location you will have to involve the telco unless you own the copper between your house and your office. You could take the DSl ciruit and have it mapped to a VP/VC on you OC3 at your office and that would give you connection ot the office. You could do the same with a Frame Relay connection.
