Hi Intelmaster,

Your query here is about DSLAM, so I will discuss with you first and foremost, a DSLAM or also known as Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer, is a networking device, usually used by the telecommunication company, installed in their headquarter, its functions are receiving signals from multiple customer's Digital Subscriber Line or also know as DSL connections and transfers the signals on a high-speed backbone line using the multiplexing method.

The DSLAM multiplexers connect the DSL lines with an array of combination of asynchronous transfer mode (ATM), frame relay, and Internet Protocol (IP) networks, DSLAM enables your telecommunication company to offer its business or homes users the fastest telecommunication technology with the fastest backbone network technology (ATM).

Enjoy your DSL line!

DSLAM and its uses in the telecom industry

DSLAM stands for Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexor and is pronounced as “dee-slam”. It is a network device that most of the time can be found in the telecommunications operators’ telephone exchanges.

This is the device responsible for connecting numerous DSL interfaces to a high-speed digital communications channel applying multiplexing methods. The DSLAM equipment gathers the data from its various modem ports and then combines their data and voice traffic into a single complex composite signal and this is done through multiplexing.

The combined data traffic will then be forwarded to a telecommunications company’s backbone switch through an Access Network or AN.

AN is also referred to as Network Service Provider or NSP which has data rate of up to 10 Gbit/s. The DSLAM equipment also works like a network switch because its functionality is at Layer 2 of the OSI model. That’s why it cannot redirect traffic among multiple IP networks but only between ISP devices and end-user connection points.
