RE: Security control in DSL access network

Let me counter with:
ROUTER - ip/ethernet - DSLAM - ip/ethernet/atm/dsl - CPE - ip/ethernet


In some cases a modern dslam will do routing as well. ATM was close to

death before DSL came along, please don't CPR it anymore. Let it R.I.P.

Growth of POS != Death of ATM

While major hardware vendors continue to crank out hardware and software
support, and while large deployments continue, it might not be fair to
assume it resting in peace or pieces..
