Who can use the service?
This is TIM's Wholesale service, available throughout Italy, for Operators who wish to offer their end customers a symmetrical (that is with the same guaranteed bandwidth for both “upstream” and “downstream” transmission), high speed and high reliability Internet connection, and who have one of the following requirements:
Description of the service
The end customer is connected to the Internet via a combination of the TIM ATM and IP platforms; the characteristic of these networks is the sharing of transmission resources. For end customers, this means that the actual “capacity” of the connection, at a given moment in time, will depend on how many other end customers are using the same resources simultaneously for transmission. Therefore, IPLINK connections are characterised by a peak cell rate (PCR) that transmitted traffic achieves only when the network is effectively uncongested. Nevertheless, the service is able to guarantee that the actual connection speed is never lower than a certain level known as MCR (Minimum Cell Rate). This guarantee is important above all when the end customer's traffic is particularly vital (for example, exchange of data between a branch of a bank and its central server, or a video-conference session). The Operator or the end customer may have their own IP address space (Autonomous System) or request assignment of one by TIM.
No preparatory services are envisaged.
