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
