Our Role in Leased Line Replacement
Leased lines are becoming increasingly expensive and more difficult to maintain as Telcos look to end these services. As deadlines approach, companies are being forced to quickly find alternatives with minimal impact on existing networks.
Leased Lines can be replaced with minimal impact to the existing network. Networks can keep their existing legacy devices like 4-wire Analog Radios and connect to their IP/Ethernet or T1 lines.
Here are our common network alternatives:
- Internal IP Network
- Public Network
- T1 Lines
Specializations and Applications
Replace with an IP/MPLS Network
Using alternate networks that are more cost effective, easier to maintain, or owned internally, you can move away from Leased Lines and still connect existing Analog and TDM interfaces.
Use an existing IP/MPLS network or build one out. Connect existing analog interfaces over microwaves or a fiber network.
Leased Line Replacement with Ethernet/IP
Replace with Plug and Play T1
Many Telcos offer T1 lines as an alternative to copper leased lines. Avoid dealing with prioritization requirements and cyber-security headaches with this plug and play solution.
Transmit 4-wire Analog Radios over T1/E1 lines.
Use Telco T1 lines to Replace 4-wire Analog
A History of Helping
ESRN Eliminates Leased Line Costs
East Shore Radio Network (ESRN) needed a replacement solution to eliminate their leased line costs. Support for leased lines had also lessened in recent years. Finding a cost-effective and future proof solution was critical. ESRN was able to fully integrate existing equipment while improving audio quality.

Replacing Leased Line with T1
Facing disruption in critical communications when copper leased lines were planned to be discontinued, a town in New England was able to utilize T1 or Switched Ethernet services offered by the provider to keep emergency services in operation

Multi-County Public Safety Agency Upgrades Microwave Radio Network
A public safety communications network in Iowa required a system-wide replacement to keep police, fire and emergency first-responders connected. Reliability of equipment had degraded and vendor support uncertain. Using a multi-service Ethernet platform (MSEP), STARCOMM was able to improve audio quality and network management. After searching for a compatible option, they decided on the JumboSwitch. With it they were able to enjoy Ethernet port limiting, management and self-healing redundancy.
