ADSL

Abbreviation for 'Asynchronous Digital Subscriber Line'. A technology for fast Internet access – it turns an existing telephone line into a digital connection capable of transmitting up to 8Mbps. The download speed is greater than the upload speed. Also known as 'Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line'.

ADSL

Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line. A data transport system, using normal copper wires with two channels, one for upstream and the other for downstream.

ADSL

Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. The most common of the DSL techniques. ADSL uses sophisticated and dynamic modulation techniques to enable high bit rate services (typically 500 Kbps uplink and 2 Mbps downlink) to be delivered over standard telephone wiring (the standard twisted pair). Ultimate bandwidths are often limited by cross-talk. ADSL is the basis for the much-anticipated `broadband revolution` given that twisted pairs are already universal but fibre and co-axial cable are not. ...

ADSL

Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line: Modems attached to twisted pair copper wiring that transmit up to 8 Mbps downstream (to the subscriber) and up to 1Mbps upstream (from the subscriber), depending on line distance, loop plant condition, electrical noise, and technology and implementation options. It is known as Asymmetric because of the different ...

ADSL

Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. A method used in broadband connection technology for moving data over regular phone lines. An ADSL circuit is much faster than a regular phone connection, and the wires coming into the subscriber`s premises are the same (copper) wires used for regular phone service.

(In topic `Network Architectures`) ADSL (asymmetric DSL) is one of the major types of digital subscriber lines, a new technology allowing more data to be sent over existing copper lines by transforming them into high-speed digital lines. ADSL enables ultra-fast Internet access and enables teleworkers to access corporate networks. ADSL is also being...

ADSL

(Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) -- A variation of Digital Subscriber Line designed for an upstream data flow (client-to-server) which is a fraction of the downstream data flow (server-to-client). Typically the upstream data flow is measured in kilobits per second while the downstream data flow is measured in megabits per second (e.g. 6 megabit...

ADSL

Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line is the technology whereby digital information at a high bandwidth is transmitted on existing phone lines. ADSL provides a continuously available, 'always on' connection. The term “asymmetric� is used as most of the channel is employed to transmit downstream to the user and only a small part to receive i...

ADSL

Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. A technology for providing high transmissions speeds for video and voice to homes over ordinary copper telephone wire. It will be most cost- effective in areas with low market penetration of 'cable' TV. In areas with higher penetration coax is expected to be more cost-effective.

Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line - Like ISDN, ADSL uses standard phone lines to deliver high-speed data communications. But while ISDN's transmission speed is limited to 64 kbps, ADSL technology can deliver upstream (from the user) speeds of 640 kbps and downstream (to the user) speeds of more than 6 mbps. Even better, ADSL uses the portion of a....
