Can anyone explain the use of using seprate links for download n upload to internet with a example scenario

Re: HI


Some transport technologies are A-synchronous. Two examples include ADSL and some sattelite technologies. ADSL usually has a very fast download and a slow upload because most users usually just download a lot. Some Satelite technologies use to different types of data bursts to recieve and send. A good example of this is I think its call Ibeam but this gist is there a central Dish that sends data to the satelite which then broadcasts this data to a bunch of satelite dishs. Each satelite dish see's the exact same burst but pulls only the chunk of data that was destined to them.

When these remote dish's send data they have to wait for there time slice giveing them a much smaller upload then the Primary Dish has.

Now to answer your question maybe you have two dsl lines one ADSL and one Synchronous Lets say you have a lot of users that have download all day and recieve e-mail all day maybe you have large attachments comming through all the time. You could use the ADSL modem for casual web requests and then the other DSL to accept mail and send mail keeping your ADSL connection unclogged by attachemtns.

Another example would be Dial up modems if you were using ppp across two modems effectivly one becomes just an upload while the other is used for purly download.
