Is an OC3 and OC3 is an OC3?
Posted on 2012-08-20
I have a radiology application that ships large files around the network. Currently we have an OC3 connecting the ASP Data Center to the corp network. These two locations are in the city ~20 miles away from each other. If we move the app to a corp hub 2000 miles away and connect it with an OC3 would we have the same app performance? Distance does not change the Mbps so I would assume the app would run the same. The app vendor is pushing back on the scenario citing latency. Is that reasonable? I would think that 155.52Mbps is that same no matter how far apart the two sites are right?
