The digital subscriber line (DSL) industry is expanding rapidly and a technology once thought to be only transitional will soon clear $100 billion in total annual service revenue. From the world’s leading DSL experts, Implementation and Application of DSL Technologies builds upon the theory presented in Fundamentals of DSL Technologies to address issues fundamental to the success of DSL technology, including those that sustain DSL development, constraints, and challenges. This highly practical text peers into the blossoming sub-industries, all born of the DSL.

The editors lead with a discussion on splitter circuits and micro-filters and continue by addressing digital chipsets and the capabilities required to mix and match them with various other components. Since testing has become an industry in its own, several chapters describe the various types of testing necessary for service qualification, the evolution of testing and provisioning of services from plain old telephone service, loop qualification, and regulator’s decree of spectrum management. The book gives adequate coverage of DSM technology and describes networks for multiple applications in video, telephony, and Internet data areas and the associated network architectures. In addition, a section on security discusses packet transfer mechanism and voice-over DSL.

Offering a vast array of information not currently in the public domain, Implementation and Application of DSL Technologies provides a rigorous survey of DSL applications that illustrates the profound effect this technology is having on the communications industry. When combined with Fundamentals of DSL Technology, this is the most comprehensive and authoritative source of information on DSL.
