Asymmetric Digital Subsciber Line. A format for transferring data at speeds of up to 24 Mbits/second (downstream rate), which is 12 times the speed of ISDN and 25 times that of a 56K modem. ASDL requires a special modem at each end, but uses existing copper phone lines.
With conventional DSL phone filters, each additional filter degrades voice quality, CLI performance, asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) data rates, and other services," explained Millard Schewe, marketing manager of the Excelsus product group.
Nasdaq:CTLM), innovator of broadband communications technology, today unveiled the launch of its new StreetFighter line of Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) chipsets for Customer Premise Equipment (CPE).
