What’s a DSLAM

A digital subscriber line access multiplexer is a network device, often located in telephone exchanges, that connects multiple customer digital subscriber line interfaces to a high-speed digital communications channel using multiplexing techniques.

We install the DSLAM near your buildings MDF (Main Distribution Frame) and jumper the ports to each room. All we need is a working telephone cable from the guest accommodation to the DSLAM to deliver broadband internet. No re wiring the building. And the phone will still work if you need guests to ring reception.

A modem is installed in each room to provide wifi for that room only. This provides the best level of security for the guest as only their equipment is visible on their private wifi.

This technology has been providing internet access for Australians for over 20 years. It has evolved over that time and will continue to.

In 2000, the first consumer ADSL services were made available via Telstra Bigpond, at speeds of 256/64 kbit/s (downstream/upstream). Distances of up to 6 kilometers can be serviced.

Currently we can provide speeds of up to 100 mbps over a telephone line to your guests per room. Super VDSL at 35 MHz provides speeds of over 300 mbps and G.Fast up to 1 gbps. You will be amazed at what your old phone lines are capable of.

Typically, Netflix streams 1080p resolution at 3 Megabits per second (3,000 kilobits per second). That’s ideally what you want to see. So even ADSL2+ easily exceeds the requirements for a positive netflix experience.
