ADSL Overview: Technology & Applications

Gary R. Hoyne

Director, Frame Based Access Systems

Tuesday January 28th at 7:00pm
College of Dupage Room SRC-1024


Before there can be an explosion in interactive multimedia services to the home, a robust, high speed digital access network must exist. Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) technology allows the same single copper wire pair used to deliver Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) to a business or residence to derive a simultaneous high bandwidth (up to 8 Mbps) digital connection. The talk will begin with a discussion of various application and service models. Transceiver technologies and relative performances will be compared, and deployment issues will be discussed. Future service models and migration paths will also be discussed.
