Lucent announces ADSL over ISDN
announced today that they are now offering an ADSL module for their
Stinger DSL access concentrator. This module will allow DSL services over
existing ISDN or POTS lines. This looks like a great product to help
migrate the existing ISDN infrastructure over to the newer and faster DSL
Providing enhanced capabilities for Lucent's Stinger, the ADSL-over-ISDN
module will allow service providers to offer end users voice and data
services as well as faster Internet access - at speeds up to 8 Mbps -
simultaneously over existing ISDN lines.
The Stinger itself looks pretty cool: high port density, support for all
existing DSL versions, and ATM or Frame Relay back-end support. I hope this
technology will help accelerate high-speed Internet access into the
sticks...for people like me. 28.8 rules....NOT!
