How does the Service work?
Whether you are in the market for OC3, OC12, OC48, or OC192 service, Telecom decision-makers and business IT professionals have a hard time finding providers that meet their geography and budget. As you have probably noticed, sourcing a new OC-x provider is not as easy as opening up the Yellow Pages and calling an electrician. Carriers' prices depend on whether or not they have invested in the infrastructure of a particular region or not.
What Can I Expect?
Because there are many technical overlaps in Ethernet and OC-x, it is important to be prepared to consider either option - but mostly it will depend on whether the carrier has invested in the infrasctucture. This IP-based solution will give you the flexibility between speeds that you need for much less money than TMD-based Optical Carrier Circuits.
So, before we call, know that we’ll have a series of discovery questions for you:
1. Why do you need this much bandwidth?
2. Is this connection part of a larger network?
3. Is this a backup or primary data connection?
4. How many people will be accessing the internet using this connection?
5. Are there governmental policies associated with the way you transport and handle your customer’s sensitive information?
6. How many Class-C static IP address blocks do you need?
7. What is the hourly productivity cost if your OC-x service goes down?
With this information we'll be able to check the geographic availability of each of our Tier 1 providers as well as many respected resellers. Our OC3 Prices experts will use a technology that we call "GeoQuote", a patented software that queries service providers in one easy-to-use interface. We connect you with a specialized OC3 Prices consultant that will work with you to find the best possible solution for your businesses needs.
How much can I save?
The information you see is limited to what the carriers have authorized us to display in public. Many of them have given us the ability to auto-discount the rates even further, but we can only give these rates to you in private via email or over the phone. That is why you'll receive a call from one of our OC3 Prices experts who can check our list of specials to find your qualifying discounts. By turning in your signed contract to the carrier through us, we’ll provide you with installation updates and full support in case of problems to ensure that your OC3 Prices purchase is a smooth experience.
