Technology that concentrates traffic in ADSL implementations. Located in the central office.
a central office device which terminates all the customer xDSL lines.
An electronic device that usually holds several DSL modems that communicate between a telephone network and a end customerâ€™s DSL modem via a copper wire access line. The DSLAM concentrates multiple digital access lines onto a backbone network for distribution to other data networks (e.g. Internet).
Refers to x Digital Subscriber Loop (xDSL) service from a central office; the distribution device for this service that combines and separates different formats of communications (voice, data, video, etc.) and routes them to their respective hosts.
A Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer is a mechanism at a phone company's central office that links many customer DSL (digital subsciber line) connections to a single high-speed ATM line.
it is located in the co-location space of an operator at an exchange site. It is composed of a multiplex and the ADSL modems necessary to operate ADSL services over the loops served by the operator from the exchange.
( DSLAM). The technical description of the Hitchhiker system. Also called "service access multiplexer." The DSLAM uses digital subscriber line (xDSL) and asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) technologies to deliver high speed data rates over the existing copper network. See also Hitchhiker, xDSL, and ATM. For an extensive description of the Hitchhiker system, refer to The Hitchhiker System manual from Diamond Lane Communications Corporation.
Key device used to enable digital subscriber line services. The device links the DSL customer to the high-speed backbone network, including ATM and frame-relay networks and the Internet.
A CO device used to aggregate data traffic from many DSL subscribers into one high-speed signal for hand-off to the data communications network.
A DSLAM is an xDSL line-interface device located in a telephone company Central Office. One side of a DSLAM connects to customer premises network interface devices (NIDs) over the local loop. The other side interfaces with the PSTNand a wide area (Frame Relay or ATM) network system.
A Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM) allows telephone lines to make faster connections to the Internet. It is a network device, usually located at a telephone company central office (CO), that connects multiple customer Digital Subscriber Line (DSL)s to a high-speed Internet backbone line using multiplexing techniques. The DSLAM creates a network similar to a LAN but not subject to Ethernet distance limits, thus providing an Internet connection for the subscribers.
