Types of Broadband Services Available
Are there different types of DSL?
Yes. There are several types of DSL. Creative Data Concepts Limited offers three types:
SDSL (Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line):
SDSL is a symmetric service - the upstream speed is the same as the downstream speed. SDSL can deliver high-speed data communications at up to 1.54 Mbps. This service is delivered via a single copper pair of wires and is ideal for business applications that would have otherwise been served by an expensive T1. Creative Data Concepts Limited Broadband service is backed by Service Level Agreements (SLA) that guarantee a specified level of high performance.
IDSL (ISDN Digital Subscriber Line):
IDSL is a symmetric service that can deliver high-speed data communication up to 128 Kbps. New Edge Networks IDSL is an ideal high-speed service alternative for users living or working outside of the metropolitan periphery, beyond the reach of traditional SDSL and ADSL services. In many non-urban areas, the distance between a telephone company's central office and a user's business or home can be substantial. IDSL's strongest asset is its ability to reach up to 36,000 feet for the telephone central office. This is twice the distance of SDSL.
ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line):
ADSL is an asymmetric service, which means the downstream speeds are faster than the upstream speeds. This service is ideal for single users with high-speed data needs. It is an excellent solution for home Web users who would like to conduct quick, efficient Web surfing, Internet research, large file downloads, video streaming, audio streaming, and 3-D image posting. ADSL operates at speeds of 384/128 Kbps or 768/384 Kbps, depending on a user's distance from their telephone company's central office.
ADSL is an asymmetrical service that is most commonly offered by telephone companies. ADSL is not suited for business uses such as hosting Web or e-mail servers. In addition, ADSL often uses a bridge instead of a router which provides little to no security, making your network vulnerable to attacks. Finally, telephone companies generally don't offer service level agreements on their ADSL service because their target customers are residential.
