long distance wans
Long Distance WANS
  • Digital Telephony
  • Prior to networks being important
  • Early telephone used analog signals which degrade over long distance needing amplifiers and introduce noise
  • Digital audio avoids noise by encoding original audio into digital form
audio digitization
Audio digitization
  • Closest integer to signal = sampling = continuous stream of numbers
audio to digital converter
Audio to digital converter
  • Sample the signal
  • Compute a number closest to level of signal
  • Continuous stream of numbers
  • Human voice has frequencies up to 4000 Hz
  • If sampled at twice the highest frequencies the original signal can be reconstructed from the samples
  • Digitized voice sampled 8000 times/sec (once every 125 microseconds)
pulse code modulation
Pulse Code Modulation
  • World-wide standard for digital telephony
  • Need to choose a range of values
  • More values = more accurate but also more data
  • Uses integers between 0 and 255 for voice
  • PCM is the sampling scheme
  • Digitized data sent over long distance and converted back to audio at destination
synchronous communication
Synchronous communication
  • Telephone industry has complex digital communications systems – long distance
  • Digitized voice is synchronous or clocked
  • Data is moved at precise rates
  • Voice apps can’t tolerate delay or noise in the same way as data
  • Continuous transmission synchronized to have constant data rate
digital phone circuits
Digital phone circuits
  • Point to point digital circuits - data uses different standards than voice
  • DSU/CSU’s (Data Service Unit /Channel Service Unit) at each end of phone circuit
the demarc
The demarc
  • Network Interface Unit (NIU) is the last piece of telephone company equipment
  • CSU portion handles line termination and diagnostics to test if line is connected
  • DSU translates data between the digital format of the phone circuit and the format needed by computer network
data rates
Data rates
  • Fractional t1’s can also be leased
  • Phone company uses Time Division Multiplexing to subdivide T1 into 24/64 Kbps fractions =1536
intermediate capacity
Intermediate capacity
  • Need more than a T1 but less than a T3
  • Inverse multiplexor allows multiple T1’s to be combined
highest capacity circuits
Highest Capacity Circuits
  • Synchronous Transport Signal (STS)
  • Optical Carrier (OC)
sonet synchronous optical network
SONET (Synchronous Optical Network)
  • In addition to STS and OC standards phone companies have defined SONET
  • Specifies details such as how data is framed
  • How lower capacity circuits are multiplexed into a high capacity circuit
  • How synchronous clock info is sent along with the data
sonet frame
  • SONET Encoding
  • Size of a SONET frame depends on bit rate
  • STS-3 circuit each frame holds 2430 octets
  • Digitized voice and data over conventional local loop wiring (twisted pair copper same as the analog phone system – POTS: plain old telephone service)
  • Two B channels operating at 64Kbps
  • B channels can be combined into a single channel to get 128 KbPS
  • One D channel operating at 16 Kbps as a control channel
  • When it was begun 64 Kbps was much faster than dialup modem, now it is an expensive alternative with little throughput
  • Multiple flavors so we refer to it as xDSL
  • ADSL –Asymmetric digital subscriber line
  • Higher bit rate downstream than upstream
  • Most users request downstream data – browsing the internet
  • ADSL can operate at 6.144 Mbps downstream and 576 upstream
  • Doesn’t require changes in local loop wiring
  • Can run simultaneously over the same wires as phone service
  • Adaptive to conditions on the local line in terms of choosing frequencies based on the interference that the modems find on the line when they power up
  • Probe many frequencies on the line between modems and select frequencies and modulation techniques that give optimal results
  • 286 separate frequencies or subchannels
    • 255 downstream and 31 upstream with 2 channels for control information
    • Choose frequencies above 4 Khz to not interfere with voice
cable modems
Cable Modems
  • Higher speed than telephone wiring
  • Less susceptible to EM interference
  • Already has infrastructure in place
  • Multiplexed onto the cable with other TV signal
  • Can deliver up to 36 Mbps, but is a shared capacity can be as little as 1/n where n=subscribers
  • CATV was never designed for upstream communication
  • Early attempts used a dual path approach – upstream data handled by a dialup modem
  • New approach is HFC )hybrid fiber coax) but it requires major upgrade of existing cable infrastructure
satellite and wireless
Satellite and Wireless
  • Wireless is usually line-of-site
  • Receiving antenna needs to be in line with transmitter
  • Satellite also uses another path for upstream traffic, making it more complex
