This was probably used over Frame Relay because of the ease of access in installing and communicating between branches on the island. Frame relay rates have also been increasing on the islands, making the Fractional T-1 that much more appealing. 5. The T3 lines are used instead of ATM because there is a lot of digital transmission. ATM does not have a QoS for Data, making T2 more reliable. The other issue is that there is a huge amount of information that needs to be backed up daily, so the T3 lines are able to be meshed together to form a “super highway” for digital communication....
