TDM or Time Division Multiplexing circuits are commonly referred to as T-1, T-3 and OC-n circuits. There are traditionally used for carrying voice, but can be used for a variety of applications. Our TDM circuits are carried by our extensive SONET network which is constructed in a ring topology to insure redundancy. Line rates from T-1, T-3 OC-3, OC-12 and OC-48 are available.
Ethernet is the “language” your data network wants to speak. Why convert it to a voice network and back again by using T-1s?
Sho-Me Technologies’ Ethernet products deliver native Ethernet straight to your equipment. With our ring topology and over 200 Ethernet nodes across the state, Sho-Me Technologies delivers more native Ethernet than anyone in the area.
In most towns we serve, we have constructed Metro Ethernet networks to deliver the last mile of your data service in a managed, ring topology, adding resiliency and manageability to your mission critical applications. This Metro Ethernet is just one more way Sho-Me Technologies is leading the way in data communication in rural Missouri.
Sho-Me Technologies utilizes Dense Wave Division Multiplexing or DWDM equipment for our express routes between major Points of Presence. This technology is available to our customers who require large pipes, such as other telecommunication carriers. These optical waves are available in 2.5 Gb/s and 10 Gb/s line rates.
Sho-Me Technologies operates several Gigabit Ethernet rings across Missouri. The bandwidth inside each of these rings is dedicated to Ethernet transport and divided into VLANs. Each customer is assigned to a private VLAN, which is carried via fiber optic cable to the customer location. This transport is virtually un-tappable and jumping VLANs in the data stream is not possible. A fully redundant Ethernet switch is used to join the segments together when bandwidth moves from ring to ring. This switch is located in our Network Operations Center in Marshfield, Missouri. There are no monitor ports at either end of the drop circuit, so eavesdropping is not possible. All equipment for the dropped circuits resides either in our secured buildings or at the customers’ location. The buildings at Sho-Me have several security measures. Our locations are equipped with door alarms, card key entry and are monitored with video surveillance. Most sites, including our Network Operations Center, are located behind locked fences.
