My company has just finished installing a 4.5Mbps SIP connection and a 5 Mbps Metro Ethernet connection. The idea was to speed things up from our traditional 1.5 Mbps T1 connections. We really have not seen much of an improvement. At least not what we expected. In the case of the MOE, I noticed that the incoming line first enters a splice box and then goes directly to a cisco switch 1GB fiber connector. It then attaches to our network via the only enabled 100 MBps connector on the switch.
Now if I do the math, it seems to me that creates a bottleneck.
Am I thinking about this the right way?
