Tier II and Tier III

by McKayTech In reply to Tier II and Tier III

I think you would have to ask the company that created and labeled the system because as far as I can tell, the terms Tier I, Tier II, etc. do not have a universally accepted definition.

However, one set of definitions is that Tier I is the desktop/user link, Tier II is the LAN and Tier III is the WAN and/or external connections. On the other hand, in the ISP world, the food chain starts at the top and a Tier I provider is one with a direct connection to one of the Internet anchor points, Tier II is downstream from that and Tier III is downstream from Tier II.

I think the more important question is what skills they need and how they intend to use them.
