Re: [Equipment] dslam

Wow WS must have gotten around to upgrading the old legacy carrier pigeon uplinks and opted for a modest 10M link (ok, I kid, I kid... They probably installed gigabit). In a nutshell, the DSLAM connects to the BRAS via ethernet or fiber. The BRAS is responsible authentication and letting us use WS's network (whether it be copper or fiber or an army of carrier pigeons).

Network Layout:
-Your DSL Modem
(connects via copper phone line to DSLAM)
-DSLAM (has a port for each for phone line)
(connects to BRAS via ethernet or fiber on trunk side)
-BRAS
(which is fed by copper or fiber is the gateway to WS's network)
-Internet
