-- The Best Bet -- According to Information Week, "DSL is the best bet in the US for consumer, mass-market, high-speed Internet access, and it's expected to drive a new wave of applications in both the business and consumer markets."
-- The Technology -- xDSL is similar to ISDN inasmuch as both operate over existing copper telephone lines. However, xDSL offers much higher speeds - up to 32 Mbps for downstream traffic, and from 32 Kbps to over 1 Mbps for up-stream traffic.
-- DSL in the mainstream -- Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOCs) and Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) are getting ready to deploy DSL to the masses. First they have to deal with the underlying building blocks of DSL and the architecture. This book shows them how.
-- xDSL -- refers collectively to all types of digital subscriber lines, the two main categories being ADSL and SDSL. Two other types of xDSL technologies are High-data-rate DSL (HDSL) and Single-line DSL (SDSL). This book covers all of these formats and more.
-- All levels -- This book takes reader step-by-step through DSL concepts, architecture, and end-to-end network design of such high speed integrated networks.
-- Next Generation DSL -- Covers VDSL technology, the next generation of DSL. This is the ultimate in copper based technology providing up to 50Mbps of bandwidth.
-- Essentials -- Covers the building blocks of xDSL technology including modulation protocols, error control protocols, and data compression protocols.
-- Makes a case for DSL -- Compares DSL to Cable Modems, ISDN, and Dial-up. Also looks at ADSL Lite.

XDSL Architecture tells you what you need to know to construct end-to-end copper loop access architectures based on the underlying building blocks of xDSL technology.From the Back Cover:
A Comprehensive Guide For Deploying XDSL From the Ground Up!
XDSL, the fastest category of transmission technologies utilizing existing copper loops, will drive a new wave of exciting applications for both businesses and consumers. XDSL Architecture tells you what you need to know to construct end-to-end copper loop Access architectures based on the underlying building blocks of xDSL technology. Focusing on ADSL Lite, HDSL and HDSL2, and VDSL, this book guides you step-by-step through the concepts, architectures, and design of these high-speed integrated networks.
You'll find invaluable coverage of the dynamics of xDSL, including:Evolution of voice, data, and video networks to a converged broadband network Comparison of DSL to other access alternatives such as cable modem and fiber Essentials of xDSL technologies, including modulation, error control, and data compression In-depth description of xDSL technologies, including ADSL Lite, HDSL2, and VDSL Fundamentals of upper-layer technologies, e.g. PPP (point-to-point protocol), ATM, tunneling, and audio and video compression Premises and Access architectures, including protocol stack models for several CPE architectures
