Definitions for "E-1"
Keywords:  cept, ccitt, mbps, devised, european
A dedicated connection from point A to point B, this is the European version of a T-1 (see entry). Instead of providing 24 DS0s (see entry) it provides 30, gives a maximum throughput of 1.92 MB/sec. edialer - A group of custom, ednet authored software applications that facilitate dialing codecs/terminal adapters from Macintosh or Windows/DOS based computers. edialer's also feature a studio search. edlink
Roughly the European equivelant of a T1 or a PRI, but with 30 data-bearing channels
A digital transmission facility used in Europe to primarily transmit 30 digital voice channels. The digital voice channels are time division multiplexed into a single serial data stream of 2.048 Mbps. E-1 facilities are also used to transport a mix of digital data, compressed video, and digital voice in ISDN applications. (source)

Network link allowing speeds of up to 2.048 megabits/second.
A leased-line connection capable of carrying data at 2,048,000 bits-per-second. At maximum theoretical capacity, a E-1 line could move a megabyte in less than 4 seconds. That is still not fast enough for full-screen, full-motion video, for which you need at least 10,000,000 bits-per-second. T-1 is the fastest speed commonly used to connect networks to the Internet.
