Behind the scenes of where your voice and data is processed!

There are over 3MB of pictures in this article! To minimize the bandwidth usage and as well as the slowdown for dial-up users, not all of them will be directly shown, but rather linked to instead. I hope you will enjoy this article and that it will be informative to you!
Ok, let's start!
There are a few rows of equipment here so we will cover most of the major equipment on them.
Let's start with the DE-4's. These are banks of 24 cards in which can be referred to as DS0 cards. 24 of them is a DS1 (also known as a T1, same thing) and are 64Kbit/sec each, which makes a T1 roughly 1.5Mbit/sec with all cards combined.
Not that fast, but most customers lease one or a few channels and they are only used for low bandwidth applications such as fax lines, low speed networking across other cities etc so it's plenty of bandwidth, and since it's dedicated, the speed is guaranteed.
