About Ericsson's Ethernet DSL Access Solution
Ericsson's Ethernet DSL Access - designed to allow operators achieve mass market DSL - offers a flexible, scalable and powerful IP DSLAM supporting installations ranging from a handful of subscribers to large site deployments.

The solution is designed without concentration in the DSLAM to ensure high-capacity throughput and no end-user limitations. By avoiding concentration in the DSLAM and connecting directly to an Ethernet aggregation network, the solution enables high bandwidth-demanding services to be supported, while at the same time reducing transport costs radically. This is a key advantage for an operator to secure their ability to compete in terms of price, bandwidth and service offering.

Ethernet DSL Access dramatically alters the economics of rolling out DSL and enables operators to address potential broadband subscribers profitably.
