ADSL What is it?

Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Lines (ADSL) are used to deliver high-rate digital data over existing ordinary phone-lines. A modulation technology called Discrete Multitone (DMT) allows the transmission of high speed data.

ADSL facilitates the simultaneous use of normal telephone services, ISDN, and high speed data transmission, eg., video.

DMT-based ADSL can be seen as the transition from existing copper-lines to the future fibre-cables. This makes ADSL economically interesting for the local telephone companies. They can offer customers high speed data services even before switching to fibre-optics.

To connect to this technology you require an ADSL Device. Ensure that you have an account setup with your ISP. This is a guide on how to connect an ADSL device to a network, specifically using the Dynalink RTA 1320 make and model.
