Many businesses that use a dedicated connection to gain access to the Internet are experiencing strains in throughput and slow response times. Network designers are searching for a new networking solution that can satisfy the ever-increasing need for bandwidth and transmission capacity. As a result, carriers, competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs, ) and Internet service providers (ISPs) are now offering DS3 (45-Mbps) dedicated access connections. Anticipating these trends, Cisco has responded by developing the CHOC-12 / DS3, as shown in, which simplifies the deployment of DS3 services. The CHOC-12 / DS3 provides up to 12 DS3 connections over a single optical interface. This setup allows network designers to increase the port density and minimize floor-space consumption. Network designers can now offer dedicated DS3 access that scales to new levels of performance and capacity, satisfying the bandwidth needs of Internet users.
