ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line): a DSL option that allows users to transmit data at a speed of up to 24 Mbps, and from the user at speeds up to 3.5 Mbps.

ADSL2 is a modification of the “classical” ADSL technology. They were developed taking into account the increased requirements of providers and end users. In ADSL2 and ADSL 2+, with practically the same transmission range as in ADSL, the speeds are increased to 12 and 25 Mbit / s, respectively. In addition, the adaptive speed change function is implemented. Thanks to these changes, it became possible to support a large number of new applications and additional services (video, multimedia, etc.). Continue reading

Voice communication via IP-network can be carried out in various ways:

Computer-to-computer

This option is not an example of IP-telephony, since the voice is transmitted only over a data network, without access to the telephone network. To organize the traffic transfer, the user acquires the necessary equipment and software and pays the provider for the operation of the communication channel. The advantage of this option is the maximum cost savings. The disadvantage is the minimal quality of communication. Continue reading

What are the Voice over IP Connection Quality Issues One Should Know

It should be noted that the wireless local area network (LAN) is only a part of the whole transmission channel, through which voice packets pass between the source and the receiver.

The quality of the connection depends on the characteristics of all the elements of the path. Whatever we discuss – the loss of packages or the reasons for the delay – the quality of each element of the path determines its overall work quality. Continue reading
