What is ADSL?

ADSL stands for Asymetric Digital Subscriber Line. It converts existing twisted-pair copper lines into high speed, high bandwidth digital lines.

It enables high speed connection to the Internet including fast access to streaming media, large websites, multiplayer gaming and a wide range of other Internet applications.

It enables access to corporate networks for telecommuters, as well as new interactive multimedia applications like multiplayer gaming, video on demand and video catalogues.

Technology

ADSL can transmit up to 6 Mbps to a subscriber, and as much as 832kbps or more in both directions. An ADSL circuit connects an ADSL modem on each end of a twisted pair telephone line, creating three information channels a high speed downstream channel, a medium speed duplex channel, and a POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) or an ISDN channel. The POTS/ISDN channel is split off from the digital modem by filters, thus guaranteeing uninterrupted POTS/ISDN. It provides speeds up to 8 Mbps downstream (to the user) and up to 1 Mbps upstream, depending upon line length and loop and line conditions.

ADSL depends upon advanced digital signal processing and creative algorithms to squeeze so much information through twisted-pair telephone lines
