ADSL Compliance*
Software selectable ADSL standards compliance:
  • ITU G.992.1 (ADSL G.dmt), all Annexes
  • ADSL data rates up to 8 Mb/s downstream and 1 Mb/s upstream
  • ITU G.992.5 (ADSL2+), all Annexes
  • ADSL2+ data rates up to 24 Mb/s downstream and 1 Mb/s upstream
  • ITU G.992.3 (ADSL2), all Annexes

  • ITU G.992.2 (ADSL G.lite), all Annexes

*This ADSL access platform implements ITU G.992.1 and ITU G.992.5

 

 

 

 

 

While terminating the user ADSL physical layer signals, the net result of this integration is multiplexing the user ATM PVCs from the downlink ADSL U-interfaces, and bridging them onto a single ADSL2+ uplink U-interface towards a DSLAM. The U-interfaces support PPPoEoATM, IPoEoATM, IPoA, and PPPoA access protocol stacks and encapsulations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Protocol Stacks and Encapsulations

 

* The eNET ADSL device is set to support PPPoE at U-interfaces.

Management Platform

 

A client/server management platform is used:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Using a browser at any client computer, one can manage any eNET-8R+ ADSL multiplexer via a server computer with the following software installed:
  • Web-server
  • Database
  • SNTP-server
  • Mail-server
  • For each eNET 8R+ ADSL multiplexer, the database keeps track of both types of data, the device configuration and subscriber profiles, which can be managed by the browser at a client computer.

    The SNTP (Simple Network Time Protocol) server synchronizes times on all eNET 8R+ devices.

    The Mail server acquires the email messages submitted by eNET 8R+ devices.

    * Network software creates, configures, and handles drivers which manage devices, ports and data channels; supports layering of devices (e.g. ATM driver on DSL interface); controls data transfer to hardware (e.g. Utopia, PCI, EPB, Ethernet, USB, HDLC, TDM, DSP); manages physical devices (e.g. DSL PHY management); manipulates data (e.g. RFC1483 encapsulation); provides traffic shaping and pacing (QoS); and gives a consistent framework for attching drivers (transports) as ethernet-like interfaces to the Bridge.
     
    **  The IEEE 802.1 Bridge (802.1d / 802.1q with Spanning Tree Support) is a Layer 2 protocol which, together with the associated ATM (Layer 2) and IP (Layer 3) protocols, provides fast and efficient forwarding of ATM and IP traffic. Set to the bridging-mode, the eNET multiplexes and forwards ATM traffic between the attached ATM/DSL ports, while terminating IP traffic, except at the uplink port which is used for remote configuration and management.
    The IEEE 802.1Q bridging encompasses  protocol translation, access loop identification, QoS, and security. Snooping, modifying  or terminating protocols in layers above the AAL are also possible, as well as the support for multicast deployments, user traceability, and user isolation (whether enabling VLAN or disabling undesirable bridging among user traffic).
     
     
    *** Besides the Bridge Layer 2 protocol, the eNET implements other Layer 2/2.5 protocols:
    • PPP
      • PPPoA Client / Server
      • PPPoE Client
      • PPPoE Pass Through
    • PPTP
    • RFC2684 (1483) Encapsulation
    • Classical IP (PVC and SVC based)
    • ATM Forum LEC

            It also supports ATM specific protocols:

    • AAL0, AAL1, AAL2, AAL3/4, AAL5
    • ATM Forum UNI 3.0, 3.1, 4.0 Signaling
    • I.610 OAM Management
    • ILMI 4.1
    • Cell Switching
    • ATM Forum TM4.1

    IP Stack :

    • IPv4 unicast forwarding
    • TCP, UDP (+ Fast UDP), ICMP
    • IGMP and multicast forwarding
    • ARP, RIP
    • BSD Socket interface to TCP, UDP and RAW sockets
    • Ping and traceroute clients
    • Virtual, Secondary and Unnumbered Interfaces
    • TCP MSS Clamp
    • Dual stack IPv4 / IPv6 Stack
    • IPSec interface
    • OSPF
    • OpenSSL SSL library support
    •  

    Security:

    • NAT/NAPT Support
    • Automatic Address Replacement
    • Reserved Mappings
    • ALGs
    • Firewall
    • WAN, LAN and DMZ Interfaces
    • Block / Allow Inbound / Outbound Sessions
    • Intrusion Detection
    • Spot common DoS attacks
    • Black list hosts
    • OpenSSL Cryptography Library Support
    • Makes use of H/W crypto where possible

    IP Services and Additions:

    • DHCP Client, Relay and Server
    • DNS Client and Relay (with simple local server)
    • SNTP
    • RADIUS Client
    • DHCP – determining names of LAN machines
    • DNS Relay – serving local names
    • Dynamic ZIPB
    • PPP – dial on demand

    QoS:

    • Metered Pools, Priority Message/Data Queues
    • Classifier
    • Meter (Policing)
    • Scheduler (Shaping, Dropping)
    • Multiple queues per data channel
    • FastUDP Interface for Voice (RTP)
    • ATM PVC QoS
      • traffic class (CBR, VBR-RT, VBR-nRT, or UBR),
      • traffic profile (PCR, SCR, MBS).
    • Ethernet QoS

    A fundamental difference from ATM is that multiple Ethernet traffic classes may be multiplexed over a single VLAN, as opposed to a single ATM traffic class per ATM VC. Using Ethernet, the traffic class can be determined frame-by-frame by examining the VLAN tag priority field.

    Voice Over IP (VoIP):

    • MGCP, SIP
    • RTP / RTCP
    • Telephony Functions
