INTEGRATED DSL AND POTS SPLITTER combines terminal blocks and DSL splitter--reducing cost, install time and space requirements.
This level of integration can significantly reduce Bill of Material (BOM) costs compared to multiboard solutions that require bulky and expensive external POTS splitters, ADSL line cards, and a traditional Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) voice line card for lifeline voice service.
On ADSL lines, POTS splitters separate RF computer data signals from low-frequency voice signals.
