DSLAM BASICS PDF

DSLAM units are typically located in telephone exchanges or distribution points. They allow for the high-speed transmission of DSL technology using legacy copper lines. DSLAMs also come with many advanced traffic management features to separate and prioritize voice, video, and data traffic. By using fiber for backhaul traffic and twisted copper cables for the last mile of a deployment, ISPs are able to build cost-effective networks that offer high-speed transmission rates. Once data arrives to a central carrier office, information is routed to a broadband remote access server B-RAS. These units are responsible for authenticating subscriber credentials, validating user access policies, and routing data to their destinations.

DSLAM units are typically located in telephone exchanges or distribution points. They allow for the high-speed transmission of DSL technology using legacy copper lines. DSLAMs also come with many advanced traffic management features to separate and prioritize voice, video, and data traffic.

By using fiber for backhaul traffic and twisted copper cables for the last mile of a deployment, ISPs are able to build cost-effective networks that offer high-speed transmission rates. Once data arrives to a central carrier office, information is routed to a broadband remote access server B-RAS.

These units are responsible for authenticating subscriber credentials, validating user access policies, and routing data to their destinations. This allows them to fulfill different bandwidth demands and subscribers located at varying distances.

Centralized models reserve a single central uplink card to perform complex traffic processing. Line cards in centralized models hand-off traffic to the uplink card. In comparison to distributed models, line cards in centralized models offer a more basic function.

Centralized architectures are designed to support a high number of subscribers. DSLAMs with distributed architectures reserve complex traffic processing for smart line cards that are based on programmable network processors such as linecard traffic processors LTPs.

Uplink cards can be in an Ethernet switch if the unit is used in conjunction with Ethernet backhaul or in a full-featured network processor. What is DSL? DSLAMs can evenly or symmetrically or unevenly asymmetrically allocate bandwidth between downstream and upstream speeds.

One of the major downsides of DSL is that speeds attenuate the farther away a subscriber is located from a telephone exchange or distribution point.

But DSL continues to be a popular deployment option due to its low deployment cost and the option to pair with faster cabling options such as fiber. The original ADSL standard could achieve downstream rates of 8.

ADSL2 can achieve downstream rates of 12 Mbps and upstream rates of approximately 1. The ADSL standard is normally used for distances of up to 18, ft. With G. The asymmetric standard can achieve distances of up to 18, ft. VDSL can achieve downstream rates of 55 Mbps and upstream rates of 1. VDSL2 can achieve downstream rates of Mbps and upstream rates of Mbps up in the first 1,ft. With the ability to reach up to 9,ft, SDSL typically yields around 1.

The standard supports data transfer rates of 64 Kbps. The xDSL standard can achieve Kbps over twisted pair copper. Transmission of data occurs over the data network as opposed to the PSTN public switching telephone network. Performance is comparable to a T1 line though it is more cost-effective.

HDSL can travel up to 12, ft and deliver symmetric rates of up to Kbps. The following will overview the different benefits and drawbacks to different internet connectivity methods. Coaxial Cable Cable originally emerged as a means to deliver access to television programming in mountainous and remote areas.

But with the widespread adoption of the internet, audiences began to consume content online using popular streaming sites such as Hulu and Netflix. But carriers were able to salvage coaxial lines using DOCSIS standards data over cable service interface specification. DOCSIS enables carriers to transmit high-bandwidth data using existing cable coaxial wiring used for cable television.

Real world rates tend to dramatically fluctuate, but improvements like these will continue aiding carriers in providing faster services for their customers. Cable relies on a shared line architecture and user speeds can drastically decrease during peak usage. However, cable will typically deliver faster rates than DSL. DSL speeds attenuate the farther away a customer is from a distribution point. With coaxial cable connections, however, the distance from a distribution point does not influence speed.

Many infrastructures already have coaxial cabling and like DSL, it is relatively inexpensive to connect. Fiber Fiber connections offer longer distances and faster transmission speeds in comparison to coaxial cable, wireless, and DSL.

Fiber uses light technology to transmit data at up to 1Gbps speeds. Using light technology allows fiber to achieve higher frequencies and data capacities. In comparison to copper-based cabling like DSL and coaxial lines, fiber operates in a near noise-free networking environment with very little interference or energy loss.

Fiber optics is also more costly to deploy than DSL or coaxial cabling. Newly built buildings will include twisted pair copper in their infrastructure making it simple for ISPs to provide connectivity using DSL. But fiber is oftentimes deployed after the construction of a building and represents an additional investment. High deployment costs influence carriers to only deploy fiber in high subscriber density areas such as metropolitan areas. To alleviate the high cost of fiber, carriers will oftentimes build hybrid deployments using fiber and twisted pair copper to create FTTC fiber-to-the-curb deployments.

Wireless Internet service providers WISP are carriers responsible for providing Internet connectivity to mobile client devices such as cell phones and wireless hotspots. Wireless Internet services are the least common types of deployments.

Unfortunately, wireless coverage can be spotty and unreliable. Frequent travelers, for example, may note that performance varies by location during the commute of a train.

There are several factors that can influence the performance of a wireless connection including altitude or the physical barriers of a building for example. Why DSL Is Still In Use Twisted copper pairs is a legacy cabling medium that deteriorates with time and can become a liability without proper maintenance.

Verizon has been accused of allowing their DSL copper lines to deteriorate so as to pressure residents into adopting fiber. But broadband providers will continue to rely on DSL technology due to low start-up costs.

The most expensive portion of fiber deployment occurs in the local subscriber loop where customer premises are located. To avoid some of the high deployment costs of fiber, carriers will oftentimes build hybrid deployments using copper in the local subscriber loop and fiber in the remaining portion of a network.

Constant improvements in DSL equipment and chipsets in DSLAMs allow service providers to take advantage of the millions of copper telephone lines that have already been deployed. New chipsets such as G. Fast have been able to achieve up to 1 Gbps at its origin. Improvements such as this will continue to prolong the lifespan of copper pairs.
