Hi,

Does anyone know what brand/model DSLAMs Telecom are using in their new roadside cabinets?

I'm seeing slower than expected speeds (~7Mbps) being reported on my Cisco 857 ADSL2+ router given the downstream noise (16.0dB) and attenuation (11.0dB).  The cabinet is only about 300m down the road and I was getting double the speed out of my Linksys modem.

There are new firware images available that fix issues related to specific DSLAMs so I'm curious as to what devices are used in the cabinets to see if they match.

Thanks,

Dean

Alcatel Lucent 7302 ISAMs. This is the same hardware that is in most exchanges however some people may still be connected to the old DSLAMs

Thanks Steve,

The release notes with the various firmware updates do mention the Alcatel 7300, and in some cases just 'Alcatel DSLAM' without a model number.  Based on this I'll go ahead and apply the latest firmware and see if it makes a difference.

Cheers,

Dean
