The ultimate DSL deployment guides and reference
Teaches the reader how to design and implement the network to offer services such as voice, video, and data
Explains the various access and core architectures for xDSL technologies
Details how to do mass provisioning and how to manage an end-to-end network
Includes case studies that depict some of the most common deployed architectures, how they evolved, problems they faced, and how they were overcome
Design and Implementation of DSL-Based Access Solutions addresses various architectures for DSL-based networks. It focuses on how to design and implement an end-to-end solution for service providers, considering various business models such as retail, wholesale, VPN, etc.
This book depicts the different architectures, and helps you understand the key design principles in deploying them. It covers both access encapsulations such as bridging, PPPoA, PPPoE, and routing, as well as core architectures such as IP, L2TP, MPLS/VPN, and ATM. Because it focuses on end-to-end solutions, Design and Implementation of DSL-Based Access Solutions talks about how to do mass provisioning of subscribers and how to manage networks in the most efficient way. It also includes discussions of real-life deployments, their design-related issues, and their implementation.
