|High Speed Digital Subscriber Line - Second Generation ANSI T1.418-2000 Start-up Phase Test Suite||Stephen Scapicchio||
InterOperability is becoming increasingly important in today?s communication industry. In a time when the consumer has more choice and flexibility in their home networking and Internet services than ever before, single vendor solutions are nearly impossible and most definitely impractical. For this reason manufacturers are taking every precaution to make sure their products work properly with all other manufacturers? products. In this spirit standards bodies are formed with the claim that modems will work collectively if they adhere to the approved standard. However, as with all documents the standards are open to interpretation. This test suite will ensure complete activation phase compliance of a High Bit Rate Digital Subscriber Line- Second Generation modem. The tests are designed to scrutinize the modems adherence to American Nation Standards Industry?s Ti.418-2000 High bit rate Digital Subscriber Line- 2nd Generation (HDSL2) approved standard. All anticipated results are based on this document and the validity of the anticipated results can be proved using this document. The methods of testing are as low level as possible and do not rely on a specific vendor?s product so the most accurate and unbiased results may be obtained.

|QOS Over ADSL||Praveen Reguraman||
Today's digital economy, dominated and driven by the growing commercial outlook of the Internet, has stimulated the demand for broadband networking as well as Quality of Service (QoS) architectures to achieve application performance and user satisfaction. Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) is gaining prominence as a cost-effective broadband access solution for high speed Internet access, being widely deployed nationwide. The promise and potential to handle applications like Video on Demand over ADSL has set the stage to engineer and evaluate QoS in ADSL systems. As a first step in this direction, the various issues applicable to QoS over ADSL are discussed and a test setup was developed to evaluate the QoS metrics with respect to the physical layer characteristics of ADSL systems. The results of the preliminary set of experiments and the insight gained from these will be presented along with recommendations for future work.
