Rate Adaptive Digital Subscriber Line. Transmission technology that supports both asymmetric and symmetric applications on a single twisted-pair telephone line and allows adaptive data rates.
RADSL allows a service provider to adjust the bandwidth of the DSL link to fit the need of the application and to account for the line length and quality. The service provider can pre-define the bandwidth or allow it to be self-adjusting. RADSL extends the possible distance from the subscriber to the central exchange office, thus increasing the percentage of homes served by DSL services.
(Rate-Adaptive Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) is an ADSL implementation that automatically adjusts the connection speed according to the quality of the telephone line, allowing RADSL to function over longer distances than ordinary ADSL. RAID
