This is a very basic view of how DSL works. The customer’s phone line is connected to a splitter. Coming in, the splitter separates your line between voice and data. Going out, it combines the two out to your local loop and into your central office. The circuit is split again, and the voice channel goes to a voice switch and out to the public telephone network. The data channel is connected to a device called a DSLAM, which is a DSL access multiplexer. DSLAMs take traffic from multiple DSL lines and combines them and sends it to a fast packet network, typically an ATM network. The data streams are switched to a gateway router and on to your internet service provider, who provides you with internet access.

Homework-P 1 of 3 A company has a corporate network which consists of five Ethernet LANs connected to a mainframe through 56 KBps lines. Each LAN has about 20 workstations which generate one message per second. Each message is 1000 bytes (8 bits per byte). Most workstations interact with each other on their LANs with only 20% of the messages being sent to the mainframe. The messages sent to the mainframe access a corporate database which services 50 I/O per second. How much of a congestion problem exists on the LAN, the WAN and the mainframe database.
Homework P 2 of 3 An Advise To The Lovelorn database operates on a T-1 line. The average input is 1000 bytes of questions. The average output has 1Million bytes of answers. Database processing time averages 3 seconds. What is the total response time if you assume 8 bits per byte.
Homework P 3 of 3 Ping ns1.bangla.net. How many packets were lost? What was the response time? Now do a trace rout and see how many hops it takes to get to get to ns1.bangla.net.
Decibells & Logarithms Converting watts to dB (or milliwatts to dBm): 10 log 10 1000 watts = 30 dBw Converting dB to watts (or dBm to milliwatts): 30 dBw = log -1 , or log -1 (3) or 10 raised to the 3rd power = 10 3 = 1000 watts 35 dBw = 10 3.5 = 3162.3 watts Note: There’s a point between the 3 & 5.
Nyquist 1. Nyquist: The maximum practical data rate (samples) per channel. Max R = 2 H log 2 V Logarithmic function to the base 2: For each # V, log V = the exponent to which 2 must be raised to produce V. Then if V = 16, the log 2 of V = 4. If V = 2, the log 2 of V = 1. Then what is the maximum practical data rate for BPSK signal on a line with a bandwidth of 3000 Hz? What is the maximum practical data rate for a QPSK signal on a line with a bandwidth of 3000 Hz?
Shannon Shannon: The maximum theoretical data rate per channel. Max R = CBW x log 2 (1 + S/N) [CBW = H in Nyquist Theorem] Then what is the maximum practical data rate for signal with a 30 dB S/N on a line with a bandwidth of 3000 Hz?
Noise T = SNT = System Noise Temperature N o = Noise Density = k T, where k is Boltzmann’s Constant (-228.6 dBw) N = Noise Power = k TB, where B is bandwidth.
Transmission Lines We understand transmission lines by oversimplifying them: a. Lump all resistances into a single large resistance. b. Lump all inductances into a single large inductance. c. Lump all capacitances into a single large capacitance. d. Lump all conductance (leakage) into a single large conductance. e. Assume perfectly uniform construction and perfect symmetry so it looks exactly the same from both ends. f. Lump all of the above into a simple impedance network and assume stability.
Transmission Lines Impedance mismatches (impedance of load does not equal impedance of the line) result in a standing wave ratio (how much energy is reflected back to the transmitter).
Transmission Line Connector Distortion Normal Power Level: - 120 dBm Problem Power Level +/- 10 dB Linear Non-Linear
Fiber Optics Attenuation: Light loss due to both scattering and absorption. Absorption: The amount of light loss due to its conversion to heat. Scattering: The disappearance of light due to its leaving the core of of a fiber. Chromatic dispersion: The tendency of a fiber to cause slightly differing wavelengths of emitted light to travel through the fiber at different speeds. (See Handout)

A - 4 KHz analog telephone channel B - 64 Kbps digital PCM channel for voice or data C - 8 or 16 Kbps digital channel D - 16 Kbps digital channel for out of band signalling E - 64 Kbps channel for internal ISDN signalling H - 384, 1536, or 1920 Kbps digital channel Basic Rate = 2B + 1D (the nominal 128 frequently used in homes) Primary Rate = 23 B + 1D
