DSLnetworks Offers Partnership Program for ISPs

DSLnetworks Tuesday introduced a new partnership program that allows Internet providers to resell Digital Subscriber Line services from DSLnetworks under their own brand name, without making infrastructure upgrades to their networks.

DSLnetworks is a leading provider of national DSL network access, broadband Internet connectivity and remote access services. ISPs partnering with DSLnetworks route their DLS traffic through DSLnetworks' backbone. The connection bypasses peering-point bottlenecks and attains true DSL throughput speeds.

"Our ability to market wholesale DSL services to ISPs on a national scale puts us on the crest of the DSL tidal wave, and we plan to stay there as DSL continues to roll into new markets," said Brad Connors, DSLnetworks' president and chief executive officer.

"We built our business model around three main ideas: DSL-exclusive, national coverage and a single point of contact. The fact is, ISPs simply can't find a faster, easier, more profitable way to offer DSL than by delivering their customers a complete solution through DSLnetworks."

Developed by Bellcore in 1989, DSL technology utilizes the two-way capability of analog to digital conversions via advanced transmission technology at the subscribing point. DSL uses the frequency spectrum between 0khz and 2.2mhz for data transmission over twisted-pair copper lines. Standard telephone lines provide transmission of data at speeds of up to 9 megabits per second downstream and up to 1.5 megabits per second upstream, depending upon line length and loop conditions.
