  19. Typical HFC Frequency Plan Upstream Downstream • Upstream and downstream data channels are shared Ch2 Ch 78 5 MHz 42 MHz 54 MHz 550 MHz 750,860 MHz, 1 GHz 2-way services AM Video Digital Video 2-way services 320 Kbps to 10 Mbps 30 to 40 Mbps/6 MHz channel

  20. Class 5 Switch Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line DSLAM: Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer ATM Switch Fabric To ISPs, IXCs ADSL ADSL Modem

  21. ADSL Access http://www.3com.com/solutions/dsl/dsl_tech_microwt.html#_Toc389638794

  22. ADSL is dedicated point-to-point technology ADSL peak rate is 6 Mbps downstream; average rate is typically 1-2 Mbps ADSL upstream rates are typically 1/10 of downstream Cable modem is a shared bus (typically 100 customers) Cable modem peak rate is 30-40 Mbps shared over all customers currently active Cable modem systems typically have a single shared upstream channel at lower rate Differences between ADSL and HFC

  23. ADSL Downstream: 1 Mbps to 8 Mbps Upstream: 128 kbps to 640 kbps Range: 12 kft to 18 kft G.lite Downstream: 1.5 Mbps Upstream: 512 kbps Range: 18 kft VDSL Downstream: 13 Mbps to 52 Mbps Upstream: 1 Mbps to 4 Mbps Range: 1 kft to 4 kft For use off of DLC RDT or FTTC ONU IDSL Downstream: 128 kbps Upstream: 128 kbps Range: 18 kft No POTS HDSL Downstream: 1.544/2.048 Mbps Upstream: 1.544/2.048 Mbps Range: 12 kft Requires Two Pair Used for commercial T1/E1 service Taking the majority (70% of U.S. in 1996) market for T1s SDSL (One Pair HDSL) Downstream: 784 kbps Upstream: 784 kbps Range: 12 kft No POTS Types of xDSL

  24. Limitations and Obstacles to xDSL • Distance limited, Maximum loop length dependent on • Data rate • Gauge makeup • Bridged Tap • Load Coils • Noise • Crosstalk • Serving Arrangement - Copper vs. DLC

  25. Total Loop Length • National Segmentation 41% Urban 50% Suburban 9% Rural

  26. 40% 35% 30% 25% Percent of total lines 20% 15% 10% 5% 0% Fiber fed DLC Copper fed DLC GTE NYNEX BellSouth Ameritech U S WEST National Total Southwestern Bell Bell Atlantic Pacific Telesis Digital Loop Carrier • Digital Loop Carrier (DLC) Solution Needed • Over 20% of US loops served by DLC • Much higher in some regions of the country • Majority of new growth served by DLC • Many of the affluent, suburban, prime ADSL subscriber neighborhoods served by DLC 1998 DLC Deployment

  27. National Loop Statistics • Load Coils • Approximately 2% - 8% of all loops are loaded • xDSL will not operate over loaded lines • Bridged Tap • Approximately 70%-80% of all loops have one or more Bridged Tap • Bridged Tap are generally not a problem. • Lowers SNR by a few dB resulting in small decrease in range • Bridged-tap at or very close to the Quarter-wavelength length may cause more problems

  28. Spectral Compatibility • T1 lines and ADSL • Near End Cross Talk (NEXT) from T1 can nearly stop downstream ADSL • NEXT from ADSL can disrupt T1 • Repeatered HDSL and ADSL • HDSL repeaters can destroy ADSL on long loops. • ADSL and VDSL • NEXT from ADSL can significantly hurt VDSL signals • Unbundling xDSL, and different CLECs • May cause incompatibilities between various flavors of xDSL

  29. Summary • xDSL allows LECs to deploy high speed data services quickly and economically over their existing infrastructure • At the same time, the xDSL addressable market is constrained by the existing infrastructure • Loop Qualification is a necessity • DLC solutions are necessary to unlock more potential subscribers

  30. Emergence of “Double-Bubble” Networks Incumbent Local Exchange Carriers (ILECs) build out a separate IP network PSTN Gateway Gateway IP Network

  31. Dense Wave Division Multiplexing • Multiplex wavelengths into a single optical fiber • Lucent WaveStar OLS 400G supports up to 80 optical channels of 2.5 Gb/s each over a single fiber http://www.webproforum.com/dwdm/topic01.html

  38. The Quality of Service ChallengeTransmission of voice through data networks • 150 msec one way delay • Minimum jitter buffer of 15 msec • 1-2% packet loss Delay Losses Jitter

  39. The rising tide:a first answer to the quality concern

  40. The delays are already almost acceptablebut there are wide variations

  41. Congestion happens! • Loss of transmission resource • Olympic games, earth-quake, TV show...

  42. Diffserv and Edge Control:Solving the QoS challenge Managed IP backbone Edge router Customer

  43. Evolution of the NetworkTwo options for quality of service Diffserv Bandwidth 1: Rising tide 2: Retooling

  44. Different Requirements for Voice and Data • Voice • Sensitive to delay and jitter • Low tolerance for packet loss • Data • Delay insensitive • Packet loss dramatically reduces throughput • Small buffers • VoIP delays lie within acceptable bounds; compliance with loss bounds are ensured only for low loads of TCP traffic • Severe degradation of TCP performance even at very low loads since the buffers are unable to accept even small bursts that are generated by a TCP flow • Large buffers • Good throughput for TCP • VoIP traffic suffers a sharp increase in jitter at even moderate buffer sizes

  45. Separation of traffic with priority classesVoice > Data

  46. Conclusion • Continued exponential growth in size and functionality of the Internet • Thanks for fiber optics, network technology is keeping pace with demand
