An ADSL MODEM is a broadband Internet access device, which utilizes the high frequency
segment of the phone line to transmit high-speed data without affecting the voice transmission. The frequency of the ADSL signal is higher than that of voice, so voice and ADSL signal can coexist in one line by using a splitter to insulate each from the other. ADSL data transfer adapts the asymmetry model. It supports upload transmission speed up to 1Mbps and download speed up to 8 Mbps (24Mbps for ADSL2+). ADSL is an ideal device for broadband access.
1.2 ABOUT ADSL2/2+
Transmission performance of ADSL2 is improved comparing with the first generation of ADSL.
These improvements are mainly concerned with long distance, anti-line-loss, anti-noise, etc. By doubling the transmission bandwidth, ADSL2+ has implemented a downlink rate as high as 24 Mbps. Therefore, Internet applications such as synchronous transmission of multi video stream, online games and huge capacity of downloading files are made possible.
