Tech (NTC) Roll No- 19 Assignment – Broadband and Multimedia Technology
xDSL Introduction •xDSL is the term for the Broadband Access technologies based on Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) technology –“x” signifies that there are various flavors of DSL •Provides always-on, high-speed data services over existing copper wires to residences & businesses –POTS service and DSL coexist on same copper line •Lower rate xDSL (up to 1.5 Mbps) is gaining popularity in the residential market; will get faster and cheaper •High performance xDSL (up to 52 Mbps) targets business and high-end users Benefits & Applications Benefits •High-speed data service–DSL typically >10x faster than 56-kbps analog modem •Always on connection–No need to “dial-up” •Uses existing copper wires–Co-exists w/ POTS service •Reasonably priced today and getting cheaper Applications •High speed Internet access •Multimedia, Long distance learning, gaming •Video on Demand •VPN •VoDSL
G. a.Lite or DSL Lite •Expedites and reduces cost of deployment process by moving the splitting process from the CP to the CO •Splitter-less nature slows the bit rate considerably xDSL 15 –Rate-Adaptive DSL (RADSL) •Detects highest possible line rate & adjusts accordingly –Very High Bit-rate DSL (VDSL) •Used to get high speed over short local loops •Typically used in conjunction with Fiber to the Curb (FTTC) •Still in development phase Symmetric xDSL •“Symmetric” => downstream & upstream rates are equal –Suitable for office type apps like Video conferencing •Types of symmetric xDSL –Symmetric DSL (SDSL) •Based on HDSL but single pair •Spectral compatibility an issue (crosstalk& interference) –High bit-rate DSL (HDSL) •The first of the symmetric DSL technologies •Uses multiple wire pairs (2 or 3) to achieve high bit rates –HDSL 2 •Single-pair version of HDSL •More standards driven to improve interoperability and spectrallycompatible with other loop services (ISDN.k. Video on demand (VoD) •Types of asymmetric DSL –Asymmetric DSL (ADSL) •The original and most popular •Other asymmetric DSL technologies derived from ADSL –Universal ADSL (UDSL).Asymmetric xDSL •“Asymmetric” => faster downstream rate vs. T1.

• • VoD service was out of reach for many consmers due to equipment & operational cost. The asymmetric data streaming profile of the uADSL technology matched the data flow profile of web browsing. Downstream rate higher than the upstream rate. • • • A distinguishing feature of ADSL is its ability to transport POTS along with broadband services. Rate adaptation was included to allow the 2 modems on an ADSL link to adjust their rates according to the line conditions. This was achieved using a guard band to separate the voice-band & broadband frequencies. Basic Components of ADSL: • • Basic components: DSL Modem & a splitter Splitter separates the ADSL traffic from regular POTS traffic.ADSL: • Motivating factor for the development of ADSL was the desire of telephone carriers to compete with cable service providers in the delivery of VoD services. .
splitter splits the single pair into two pairs: one to voice switch & other to DSL modem (ADSL termination unit-Central) • RDSL: In the CO. RADSL & current ADSL technology automatically adapt to changing line conditions each time the link becomes active. Earlier versions of ADSL were needed to be balanced to the conditions of the line. Capability to adapt changing line conditions on the fly for both the upstream & downstream channels. or DSL access multiplexer. DMT modulation techniques are rate adaptive in nature. splitter takes a single copper loop & splits into 2 pairs: one to telephone handset & second to DSL modem (ADSL termination unit-remote) • On CO side. An alternative is to use a combination of fiber cables feeding neighborhood optical network units (ONUs) & leverage the existing copper loops to home or business. • Technicians on both ends of the connection had to fix the speed of the link to match the conditions that existed on the line at the time of the installation. RADSL theoretically has an additional feature which is not in modern ADSL. The architecture of RADSL. maximum speed. . • • • Any variation in line conditions after installations was not addressed. • VDSL: • • Fiber all the way to the home (FTTH) is still prohibitively expensive. so modern DSL modems inherently have the capability. multiple ATU-Cs are aggregated into a single box called as DSLAM. & distances supported are same as ADSL.• On customer premises.
• ONU serves as a central distribution point where the fiber from the local distribution terminates & many VDSL copper loops aggregate.048 Mbps. at every 3000-6000 feet . was intended to be an economical solution to growing demand for T1 carriers.544 Mbps & 2. VDSL is asymmetric with downstream speeds that range from 13 Mbps to 52 Mbps across copper loops ranging from 1000 feet to 4000 feet. The first version was placed into service in 1992. • HDSL: • • • • • Upstream rates range from 1. • • VDSL is full-service access network that addresses a full range of services from POTS & ISDN to linking high-speed LANs. Developed by Bellcore in the late 1980s. • The DSL forum refers to this arrangement as fiber to the neighborhood (FTTN) & extends the concept to include fiber to the basement (FTTB) for high rise buildings with vertical drops & fiber to the curb (FTTC) for short drops. The line had to be spliced & repeaters inserted. High Bit-Rate DSL.5 to 6 Mbps. Is becoming preferred option over T1/E1 service. HDSL operates at symmetric speeds of 1. the same as T1/E1.• VDSL depends on very short runs over copper loops of up to 6000 feet in order to maximize the available frequency range of the wire. remaining loop to the local served by fiber. T1/E1 Transmission Systems: • • T1/E1 operates over telephone wires but the loop had to be conditioned and loading coils & bridged taps had to be removed. was the first DSL technology put into the operation.
In spite of its challenges. A comparison of T1/E1 HDSL . called as “repeaterless or nonrepeatered” T1/E1 replacement technology. so had to be separated into separate binder groups. The resistance in the loop wasted a lot of power being sent to repeater. Repeaters were normally line-powered from the CO. requiring a special power supply at the central office. T1/E1 service was popular for digital access to the PSTN. HDSL as a Solution to T1/E1 Service: • Elimination of midspan repeater.• The power levels required for T1/E1 service created crosstalk for other services. • • • • A customer premises location 18.000 feet away from the CO would require atleast 6 repeaters for a T1/E1 line.
4 miles or 5. In ISDN 2 B channels are circuit switched. The D channels carries control signals & customer call data in a packet switched mode & operates at 16 Kbps. Higher data rates than the 784 Kbps of the original HDSL transceivers are due to advances in technology. provides a data capacity of 144 Kbps. Instead of using 2 transceivers & 2 copper pairs. A variation on ISDL exists that is based on the PRI ISDN model . uses 2B+D. each capable of carrying voice & data in both directions. Traditional ISDN requires a connection to a voice switch in the CO. Symmetric DSL or single-line DSL uses a single pair.4 Km). Using multiple copper pairs to provide residential digital services is not the ideal solution to Service Provider. entire ISDL is provided by the DSL equipment hence called as “BRI without the switch” or “switchless BRI Some versions of ISDL allow full use of 144 Kbps BW while others allow only 2B operation or 128 Kbps. SDSL uses a single transceiver & a single copper pair to fractional T1 services.SDSL: • • • • • IDSL: • • Technology functions the same way as basic rate ISDN. • • • • ISDL runs on a single pair of wires at a maximum distance of 18 kft (3. SDSL fits in where customers require higher data speeds but not a full T1 service.
