1. Confused: 56k Data Lines
Generally speaking, "switched 56" is a service which gives you
synchronous 56k data to a site which you select by dialing a number
which resembles an ordinary phone number. Once connected, it looks to
the CPE just like a leased 56kb line. The advantage is that if you
only use if a few hours a month, your charges will probably be fairly
low. If you use it a lot, it could end up costing you a lot more. I
don't know rates, but generally it's priced on a time basis, rather
If they're charging you by the hour, best to take that into account.
Ouch! Well, here in NY, the install prices are lower, but they nick you
deeper on the recurring charges.
$395 for a CSU sounds like a pretty good deal to me -- I think even
the cheapest Racal and Cray units are more expensive. A "dumb" 56k CSU
is really little more than a high-speed modem, which is why it is
significantly cheaper than the equipment for switched 56, which
requires some more brains. In either case, it's four wires: two for tx,
two for rx.
Depends. If you can get a 56k CSU that has an RS-232 port, you can run
SLIP, assuming you equip the Mac similarly. Running 56 over RS-232 is
always chancy, though. Be prepared for significant error counts. V.35
is the recommended standard, but then you're going to need to talk
about routers, and that gets pretty expensive.
