      Re: Tie Pair

      If you would like to read up on Tie Pairs then this application note from Trend Communications gives a good overview.
      The tie cable routes the subscriber line from the front of the MDF where it comes into the exhange to a POTs (Plain old telephone system) at the the back of the MDF.
      When the subscriber is enabled for ADSL a new cable connects the subscriber first to a POTs splitter. This routes part of the signal to the POTs network and the ADSL part to a DSLAM.(Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplex)
      MC2+, the Most Cost-Effective Solution for ADSL, ADSL2, ADSL2+ and RE-ADSL2

      Look at the application note.
