rate adaptive digital subscriber line (RADSL)

RADSL, Rate Adaptive Digital Subscriber Line (RADSL), is a non-standard DSL method that is suitable for Internet access, as well as for the transmission of compressed video.

The term Rate Adaptive indicates that the data rates of RADSL adapt to the given line quality. RADSL data rates range from 640 kbit/s to 6 Mbit/s and are thus equivalent to those of ADSL. However, the distance range of up to 18 km is considerably larger than for all other xDSL methods. As with other DSL variants, the distance has a direct influence on the transmission speed.

Rate Adaptive Digital Subscriber Line (RADSL), unlike ADSL, works with quadrature amplitude modulation( QAM) and carrierless amplitude phasemodulation( CAP) and can adapt the data rates of other DSL methods.
