  • Drilling from the 2008-2009 campaign has further revised Orex's interpretation of the geology of the Boston-Richardson Anticlinal Structure (the "BRAS"), suggesting the mineralization may be related to sub-vertical shearing within an axial planar east-west corridor some 100m plus wide.

  • The historic slate belt model interpreted the zones of mineralization to be a "saddle-reef" type confined to quartz veined and fine grained argillites and shales along the Boston-Richardson Anticlinal Structure ( "BRAS").

  • DSLAMs and BRAS i meant … even the dumb BRASes do billing, dont they? billing records + DSLAM maps + POTS stuff gives you everything and netflow + cisco/juniper tools will give you the rest of the network map … to get fancier logical maps, data mine on netflow stats a la Guavus networks.

  • The BRAS does the encapsulation autodetection, handles the PPP to L2TP translation, and passes L2TP to AAISP.

  • In 20CN, your DSLAM port is an ATM device - it knows nothing about PPP, IP, Ethernet etc, and just transfers ATM cells to the BRAS, using BT's ATM cloud.

    On PPPoA, PPPoE, ATM and ADSL

  • Your MSAN port does the autodetection, removes the ATM cell framing, adds Ethernet framing if you're doing PPPoA, and sends the resulting PPPoE frame which can be oversized - allowing a full 1500 byte MTU to the BRAS, which then does PPP to L2TP and passing data to AAISP.

    On PPPoA, PPPoE, ATM and ADSL

  • There is never a performance gain on BT ADSL from using PPPoE; in 20CN, it's just one more block of bytes for the BRAS to strip.
