The existing local loops can handle
bandwidths up to 1.1 MHz.

Note

ADSL is an adaptive technology.
The system uses a data rate
based on the condition of
the local loop line.

  2. 2. 9-1 TELEPHONE NETWORK Telephone networks use circuit switching. The telephone network had its beginnings in the late 1800s. The entire network, which is referred to as the plain old telephone system (POTS), was originally an analog system using analog signals to transmit voice. Topics discussed in this section: Major Components LATAs Signaling Services Provided by Telephone Networks 9.2

  4. 4. Note Intra-LATA services are provided by local exchange carriers. Since 1996, there are two types of LECs: incumbent local exchange carriers and competitive local exchange carriers. 9.4

  10. 10. 9-2 DIAL-UP MODEMS Traditional telephone lines can carry frequencies between 300 and 3300 Hz, giving them a bandwidth of 3000 Hz. All this range is used for transmitting voice, where a great deal of interference and distortion can be accepted without loss of intelligibility.

  16. 16. 9-3 DIGITAL SUBSCRIBER LINE After traditional modems reached their peak data rate, telephone companies developed another technology, DSL, to provide higher-speed access to the Internet. Digital subscriber line (DSL) technology is one of the most promising for supporting high-speed digital communication over the existing local loops. Topics discussed in this section: ADSL ADSL Lite HDSL SDSL VDSL 9.16

  25. 25. 9-4 CABLE TV NETWORKS The cable TV network started as a video service provider, but it has moved to the business of Internet access. In this section, we discuss cable TV networks per se; in Section 9.5 we discuss how this network can be used to provide high-speed access to the Internet. Topics discussed in this section: Traditional Cable Networks Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial (HFC) Network 9.25

In this section, we briefly discuss this technology. Topics discussed in this section: Bandwidth Sharing CM and CMTS Data Transmission Schemes: DOCSIS 9.30
