Virtual paths

A VP connects DSLAMS to the BT internal ATM network.

Your ADSL line is connected to a DSLAM. Up to 20 or 50 DSLAMS can be connected to a single VP (depending on its type). The VP has a traffic capacity of 4Mbs or 10Mbs and when the amount of traffic from all the DSLAMs connected oto it exceed a certain threashold it is flagged as amber. If it reaches capacity it is flagged as red. Both amber & red require BT to normally add additional VPs to the exchange to spread the traffic load and thus make the VP operate within their threashold limits.

When a VP goes amber/red throughput is affected and this is called contention.

Thanks for tidying it up, even if it does make our responses look inane Wink

Yeh, but the darkness of the caves help us disguise the fact. The soft furnishings bring the truth into stark contrast Shocked

Oh well,

Its better to have forgotten and remembered than to never have known at all hey :lol: ( <-- adapted specifically for this thread ( Copyright tomspcs 2006 lol )).

I simply keep attending these boards in the hope that one day I will pass the entrance exam for the local loony bin. But then I wake up to reality each morning and realise I have a pretty long way to go. Wink
