ADSL

1) What is ADSL2+ service?
ADSL stands for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line. These services are offered at speeds ranging from 128Kbps to 16384kbps. Using this technology, customers can connect to the Internet on their telephone line by means of an ADSL2+ modem. Users of this service use a shared bandwidth.
2) What are the advantages of ADSL2+?
  • Internet access with a maximum speed 3 times as fast as the maximum speed in an ADSL service and with a higher coverage
  • Provision of services to subscribers located at further distances from telecommunication centers
  • Lower error rate in preventing disturbances to telephone conversations
  • Lower cost compared to wireless or mobile internet
  • More stability in climate and geographical changes compared to wireless services
3) What are the requirements for receiving ADSL2+?
    • Shatel service is set up at the telecommunication center or the tower blocks and apartment complexes in question. Shatel is active at the desired telecommunication center and the required facilities are provided.

4) What lines can ADSL2+ service be provided on?
Currently, the provision of high-speed services is limited to lines that are made of copper wires throughout the route from the telecommunication center to the user’s location. It is not possible to offer ADSL2+ service if subscriber’s phone line is PCM (Pulse-code modulation), optical fiber (ONU) or Remote. Accordingly, to use this service, having a copper telephone line is essential. It should be noted that by installing special equipment at the site, Shatel Company has been able to provide the services for buildings whose lines are not suitable for ADSL2+ services, provided that a considerable number of residents of which need the access to the Internet.

  • Fiber lines::Telecommunication centers are using optical fibers in densely populated areas to provide telephone lines to their subscribers. The most common example is the new towers, where telecommunication center installs a low-power telecommunication switch near or inside the tower, and connects it to the main switch of the center by means of an optical fiber. In this case, telephone lines enjoy high quality, but since the provision of ADSL2+ services require a “copper wired” connection from company’s PAP equipment to the subscriber’s location, it is impossible to provide ADSL2+ services if there is optical fiber on the route. Remote centers are similar to optical fibers too, with the difference that the telecommunication center usually selects a local space and creates a small MDF there, and telephone numbers are transmitted by optical fibers from the main center to this location.
  • PCM lines:

If the telecommunication center does not have enough capacity to allocate one pair of wires from the telecommunication center to each user, a pair of wires will be pulled up to a place (for example, to an alley or a tower) and a PCM BOX will be placed on the line, so that a large number of lines can be split from this single line and each user can be given a split line. It means that the number of telephone lines in the MDF hall is then multiplexed on a pair of wires, and on the other side it is de-multiplexed and the split lines will be delivered to the subscribers. So, the line cannot support data and voice calls simultaneously. Therefore, you cannot have ADSL2+ on this line.

5) How does Shatel provide services in residential and business buildings?
  • Contacting Shatel experts and holding initial meetings at the applicant’s building
  • Submitting a formal request by the board of directors of the building to Shatel and specifying the number of users and the number of services needed
  • Technical review and feasibility study of service provision by Shatel Company. At this stage, the technical experts of Shatel, while referring to the customer’s location, examine the technical feasibility of providing the service, and if service provision is possible and if the number of users equals the required number, the process will proceed with signing a contract.
  • Signing the contract and installation of equipment. At this stage, Shatel concludes a general contract with the board of directors to allocate a space to the required equipment, and then installs the equipment. The building is firstly connected to Shatel high-speed internet masts by radio antennas and wireless radios, and after the installation of telecommunication equipment, it is possible to provide the service to each unit individually on their telephone lines.
6) What are the most important advantages of using these services in residential and business buildings?
  • Providing the service independent of existence of the facilities in telecommunication center
  • Providing the service free of telecommunication platforms including optical fiber lines
  • Provision of Internet service at speeds above 16Mbps (if conditions let)
  • Launching the service in the shortest possible time through building’s MDF instead of local telecommunication center’s MDF
  • Shortening the service provision process because of deleting the telecommunication-related process (such as preparing the line, etc.)
  • Launching the service with no need to go through telecommunication center bureaucratic process (such as sending line owner’s documents, etc.)
  • Benefiting from special support services
  • Benefiting from VIP privileges in addressing potential problems
  • Assigning special equipment to the building
