350-022 - CCIE Service Provider DSL Exam
Go back to Cisco
A DSL subscriber says that his DSL modem is trained at the subscribed rates, 1024 kbps downstream and 256 kbps upstream, but he has no access to the internet. The internet service was working until today. The modem remains trained - it is not dropping train or frequently retraining. Manually retraining the modem does not correct the problem. The customer can ping from his PC to the Ethernet interface on the DSL modem, but not addresses "in the network". Initial troubleshooting shows that the DSL modem can ping the subscriber's PC, but no addresses in the network. What could cause this problem?
There is a problem with the subscriber's ATM PVC between the DSLAM and ATM switch. An incorrect VCI was assigned between the DSLAM and ATM switch shortly after midnight, during the service provider's network rearrangements.
What will significantly degrade DSL performance, regardless of DSL rate or line length?
Radio-frequency filters on the telephone line
While entering commands on a console, the break key is pressed accidentally and the router reboots. What action could disable this problem?
Change the configuration register.
In order to avoid loops when sending routing updates, what is the correct technique to prevent a network from being forwarded on the same interface it is learned?
What is the difference between AAL5 SNAP and AAL5 MUX virtual circuits?
SNAP allows multiplexing of multiple protocols over a single VC, while AAL5 MUX can carry only one protocol per VC.
What is the use of a VC class in IOS configuration?
It defines a template for virtual circuits which can be applied to a (sub)interface such that all PVCs on that (sub)interface which will inherit the configuration from that template.
The ATM reference model is composed of which ATM layers? (multiple answer)
ATM adaptation layer
A DSL line status report shows a high number of corrected and uncorrected errors. The line is configured at 4 milliseconds interleave delay and 4 FEC check-bytes. To reduce the number of uncorrected errors without a detailed analysis of whether the errors are continuous or "bursty", which of the following should provide improved error correction?
Change the interleave delay to 16 milliseconds and the FEC check-bytes to 16
A subscriber complains that his DSL rates are slower than the service he ordered. The customer ordered ADSL at 1 mpbs downstream and 256 kbps upstream, but the maximum bitrate observed during file downloads is 100 kbps downstream. Of the following four choices, which is clearly the most appropriate information needed to begin troubleshooting the problem?
The actual DSL rate that is reported when the DSL line is trained
ATM carries IP and PPP information within ATM cells. What ATM Adaptation Layer is used when an ATM cell carries IP packets and PPP frames?

An enabled AUX port
A DSL customer has subscribed to a service that provides 2 mbps downstream and 256 kbps upstream. The cable length is 10 kft (3 km). The customer reports that file transfers on the DSL line seem slower than normal in recent days. After reviewing the DSL profile parameters for the DSL port, and the actual status of the line, what is the possible reason why the subscriber's data rates are slower than usual?DSLAM#show dsl int atm 1/1DMT profile parametersMaximum Bitrates:Interleave Path: downstream: 2048 kb/s, upstream: 256 kb/sFast Path: downstream: 0 kb/s, upstream: 0 kb/sMinimum Bitrates:Interleave Path: downstream: 0 kb/s, upstream: 0 kb/sFast Path: downstream: 0 kb/s, upstream: 0 kb/sMargin: downstream: 6 dB, upstream: 6 dBInterleaving Delay: downstream: 16000 usecs, upstream: 16000 usecsCheck Bytes (FEC):Interleave Path: downstream: 16, upstream: 16Fast Path: downstream: 0, upstream: 0R-S Codeword Size: downstream: auto, upstream: autoTrellis Coding: DisabledOverhead Framing: Mode 3Operating Mode: AutomaticTraining Mode: QuickMinrate blocking: DisabledSNR Monitoring: DisabledStatus:Bitrates:Interleave Path: downstream: 640 kb/s, upstream: 256 kb/sFast Path: downstream: 0 kb/s, upstream: 0 kb/sMargin: downstream: 6 dB, upstream: 9 dBAttenuation: downstream: 45 dB, upstream: 31 dBInterleave Delay: downstream: 16000 usecs, upstream: 16000 usecTransmit Power: downstream: 19.4 dB, upstream: 12.0 dBCheck Bytes (FEC):Interleave Path: downstream: 16, upstream: 16Fast Path: downstream: 0, upstream: 0R-S Codeword Size: downstream: 1, upstream: 8Trellis Coding: Not In UseOverhead Framing: Mode 3Line Fault: NONEOperating Mode: ITU G dmt Issue 1Line Type: Interleaved Only
The signal-to-noise margin on the line will not allow downstream DSL rates faster than 640 kbps. If the subscriber's service was in fact faster at some time, then something has changed in the line characteristics or noise spectrum.

A DMT DSL modem is working on a "shared line" with standard telephone service (POTS). When the subscriber picks up the telephone handset, the DSL modem untrains, then retrains at a lower DSL line rate. When the telephone is not off-hook, the DSL modem will train at the subscribed rate (normal operation).Which of the following is the probable cause of this symptom?
A microfilter or splitter was not correctly installed between the telephone and the line.
When a subscriber is configured for PPPoE service, the DSL modem is usually configured as:
A basic bridge (RFC 1483 bridging)
BGP can implement a policy of 'Route Dampening' to control route instability. What statement about route dampening is NOT correct?
The history of unstable routes is forwarded back to the sender to control future updates.
What is RPF?
Reverse Path Forwarding
What is true about the DLCI field in the Frame Relay header?
It generally has significance only between the local switch and the DTE device.

The line may not train.
DSL line rates will be lower than expected (lower than provisioned).
The line may have degraded DSL service, but POTS service may appear normal.

Too many bits have been assigned to the VCs reducing the possible values of the VP.
What is NOT a reason to deploy MPLS?
