ADSL definition

ADSL or "Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line" is a Passband digital loop transmission technology that typically permits the transmission of up to 8 Mbps downstream (from the Central Office to the End User Customer) and up to 1 Mbps digital signal upstream (from the End User Customer to the Central Office) over one (1) copper pair. "HDSL" or "High-Data Rate Digital Subscriber Line" is a synchronous baseband DSL technology operating over one or more copper pairs. HDSL can offer 784 Kbps circuits over a single copper pair, T1 service over two (2) copper pairs, or future E1 service over three (3) copper pairs. "HDSL2" or "High-Data Rate Digital Subscriber Line 2" is a synchronous baseband DSL technology operating over a single pair capable of transporting a bit rate of 1.544 Mbps.
ADSL or “Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line” means a transmission technology which transmits an asymmetrical digital signal of up to 6 Mbps to the Customer and up to 640 kbps from the Customer.
ADSL or “Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line” means a transmission technology which transmits an asymmetrical digital signal using one of a variety of line codes.

Examples of ADSL in a sentence

  • At Gulf Coast’s request, and for the charge(s) described on Appendix A, GTE will condition those lines that are unbundled pursuant to this Attachment to remove load coils, bridge taps, low pass filters, range extenders and other devices to allow such lines to be provisioned in a manner that will allow for the transmission of digital signals required for ISDN and ADSL services, or, in the case of analog lines, to meet specific transmission parameters (e.g., Type C, Type DA, Improved C).

  • The following are not offered in UNE-P arrangements: (a) Frame Relay; (b) ATM; (c) ADSL; and (d) AIN.

  • The leading UK operator BT too is experimenting ADSL with 3,000 subscribers.

  • Today, the technological requirements to access Second Life with an optimal user experience are 1 gigabyte of RAM and 128MB of video RAM (and the corresponding up-to- date graphics card) as well as at least an ADSL broadband connection.

  • More encouraging for the commercial take-off of new services are plans by the Austrian operator Austria Telecom to offer interactive multimedia services based on the Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL), a technology that allows to provide high-speed communications over regular telecoms lines.
