Definition - What does EtherLoop mean?
EtherLoop is an Ethernet protocol that provides high-speed communication and low-quality interference without cabling, bridge taps or wire gauges. EtherLoop, which is fully compliant with the ANSI T1.417 Spectrum Management standard and openly deployed in public switched telephone networks (PSTN). EtherLoop is also known as next-generation Digital Subscriber Line (DSL).
Techopedia explains EtherLoop
EtherLoop speeds range from 125 Kbps to 10 Mbps with distances up to 23,000 feet and this makes them ideal for universities, apartment buildings and hotels. EtherLoop combines Ethernet and DSL technologies for high-speed voice communication, as follows: Ethernet: Packet delivery algorithms, also known as burst modes, and half-duplex (HDX) transmission DSL: Data rates EtherLoop features include: Single voice/data line access Flexible upstream/downstream bandwidth for voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Web hosting and other applications Flexible speed for easy application delivery Spectral compatibility for interference reduction via continuous signal monitoring Plug-and-play for easy installation Point-to-point (PPP) collision reduction Ethernet checksum for frame error checking and retransmission Local area network (LAN) bridge via single line connection Low cost of deployment
