More About Copper Broadband Access

Broadband is a data communications technology that enables faster data transmission over copper telephone lines than a conventional voice-band modem can provide. It does this by using frequencies that are not used by voice telephone calls to transmit internet (IP) traffic. Broadband speed is the rate that information is sent (upload or upstream speed) or received (download or downstream speed) on the line and is measured in ‘Mbps’ (‘megabits per second’).

The BRAS (Broadband Remote Access Server) provides your necessary profiles linked to the authentication required for access to internet related services. A plain old telephony service (POTS) filter is connected to the telephone plug to filter out the noise between the data and voice channels on your line. A router is then connected to the telephone plug and the telephone to the filter. The PC/end-user device is then connected to the modem via an ethernet cable or or Wi-Fi. Fixed broadband does not offer guaranteed speed as the internet connectivity speed is dependent on the available capacity between the exchange (Digital subscriber line access multiplier – DSLAM) and the IP network. This is why it is referred to as a best-effort experience.

DSLAMs are being replaced by Multiservice Access Nodes (MSAN) as BCX moves towards next generation network broadband services.
