Implement DSL end-to-end solutions for all six current DSL architectures
Virtual private networks, firewall security, e-commerce applications, multiple voice lines, and e-learning programs: Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) can bring all of these services to even the smallest network at an affordable price. End-to-End DSL Architectures shows how DSL can save you time and money and, most importantly, give you a competitive edge. Your primer and guide to all things DSL, this book is written for both U.S. and international audiences and builds on your basic knowledge of internetworking and TCP/IP to evaluate and compare all six TCP/IP architectures for DSL.
In addition to addressing the fundamentals of DSL technology and offering guidance for planning future network evolution for a new or legacy DSL network, this book tells you what you really need to know, posing real-life challenges and explaining how to overcome common obstacles to implementation. To help you remember key concepts, each chapter of End-to-End DSL Architectures contains challenging, chapter-ending review questions that test your knowledge of the subject matter. A uniquely thorough glossary provides a concise yet full reference that is critical for sorting through the abbreviations and variations of DSL technology.
Whether you are searching for a comprehensive reference to DSL standards and equipment or require an end-to-end solutions guide for xDSL architecture, End-to-End DSL Architectures is your complete solution for implementing DSL technology anywhere in the world, in absolutely any network-but especially in your own.

Good book on a very ambitious topic,
For the most part, this book provides a great introduction to the subject matter that allows the reader to see where the different puzzle pieces fit. If there's a better book that truly provides a deeper insight into DSL architectures, I haven't found it.
There are aspects that could be improved, especially when it came to the part I was interested in the most, the discussion of IRB, RBE, PPPoE and L2TP. The different subsections were a bit inconsistent in their explanations, sometimes going through the protocol stack graphically, sometimes not (unfortunately), sometimes using terminology between figures and text that did not match up 100%. That part looked a bit patched together from different sources, but nevertheless, despite that flaw, it provides the best summary of these... Read more
