The equipment at the exchange end of your DSL line is known as a DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer).
DSLAMs comply with international standards. The principal reference is ITU-T (International Telecommunication Union - Telecommunications Sector) Recommendation G.992.1. The modem you use on your end of the line must comply with the same standard.
Telkom publishes a List of Modems that have been tested with our DSLAMs . Manufacturers and distributors may submit their modems for testing. ICASA (Independent Communications Authority of SA) published a regulation that governs the regulatory requirements of DSL modems, i.e. Gazette No. 23766, Notice No 1488. To supplement the regulation, Telkom will publish a detailed DSL Network Subscriber Interface Desciptions shortly.The DSLAMs of both Telkom and the Second Network Operator (SNO), and all DSL modems used in South Africa must comply with those specifications.
This document describes the network interface presented to the end user subscribing to Telkom DSL. It recommends the configurations for the DSL modem and includes the requirements for the line and splitter/micro-filter at the customer premises.
