  1. private line

    A private line refers to a dedicated communication link or phone line provided by telephone companies for the exclusive use of a particular client, mostly for businesses or corporations. This line has high-speed capabilities and can carry voice, data, or video traffic. It helps to avoid network congestions and provides more secure and reliable services than a shared or public network.


  1. Private line

    In wired telephony, a private line or tie line is a service that involves dedicated circuits, private switching arrangements, and/or predefined transmission paths, whether virtual or physical, which provide communications between specific locations. Most private lines connect only two locations though they may be switched at either end or both. Some have multiple drop points. Note: Among subscribers to the public switched telephone network, the term "private line" is often used to mean a one-party switched telephone line, as opposed to a party line.
