We are having to terminate a Serial Interface Leased Line onto our Cisco 3825 Router. We have two ways of terminating it:
The telecom carrier gives us a G703 interface which we connect straightaway to our 3825 router which requires us to install a E1 T1 Card Network Module card on the router
The telecom carrier connects his G 703 interface to a G703 to V.35 Converter and provides us with the V.35 Termination. We then connect this to our router with smart serail cable and using HWIC 1T V03 Card on the router
We would like to know which of the two options is better. As we are in electronic high frequency trading , We are looking at the faster connection with higher speed support, lower latency and greater throughput.
I can't say other will agree with me on this, but you're going to have to ask your ISP. You can have a T1 and hope to get 1 Mbps link but if your ISP's backbone node is fully congested during office hours (as an example), then you're stuffed.
Either way won't make any difference. The ISPs contention ratio plays a significant part. This is why financial organization pays a fortune to the ISP and holds them to their word on the SLA. Financial institution don't just have a single/dual link towards a single provider. They "hedge their bets" and have two or more links but each link goes to a different provider. Each provider has a different exchange which runs on different power source and/or power feeders.
Take a good example for here, Australia. If you are a government agency, you have access to one of telco's government-only WAN backbone link. What the telco won't tell you is that there are several "levels" (not just speed). The lowest level of this government-based WAN link is that EVERYONE is on it. You'll see your latency creep up, on a 20 Mbps link as an example, significantly after lunch time (and all up to 7 pm). If you happen to be flush with cash or you got lucky, you'll be on a "defense-grade" WAN backbone where the SLA guarantees you low latency at any time of the day.
This is what is like in the "real world" and not what you'll see on any books or school. Big difference.

Introduction The purpose of this document is to demonstrate the Open
Shortest Path First (OSPF) behavior when the V-bit (Virtual-link bit) is
present in a non-backbone area. The V-bit is signaled in Type-1 LSA only
if the router is the endpoint of one or ...
