Default info

What is a DSLAM ?

Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer is a device usually located in
the BT exchange that connects many digital subscriber lines to a network by
multiplexing the ADSL traffic onto one or more network trunk lines. The
ADSL lines go into the DSLAM and then go out to PVC's (Permanent Virtual
Connections) these are where BT intends that contention should take place.
They have a minimum size of 10Mbps and carry a mix of traffic to/from 3
ISPs. ie - each PVC would be used by a maximum of 3 ISPs for users on the
same service.
