T3 and E3 standards offer higher bandwidth than the T1 and E1 standards. T3 stands for T-Carrier Level 3 and is a type of connection usually based on a coaxial cable and a BNC connector. This is different from the T1 connection, which is usually offered over twisted-pair media.
T3 connections are often referred to as DS3 connections, which relates to the data carried on the T3 line. T3 offers additional throughput because it uses the equivalent of 28 T1 circuits, meaning 672 T1 channels. This offers a total line rate of 44.736Mbps.
