Before You Begin

The Hotwire


5620 RTU (Remote Termination Unit) interoperates with the Hotwire

8510 DSL Card in the DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer) system.

An optional POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) splitter is available for the Hotwire
5620 RTU. When a POTS splitter is installed, the telephone and 5620 RADSL (Rate
Adaptive Digital Subscriber Line) RTU can function at the same time over the same pair
of copper wires. In order to confirm the RTU installation, the POTS splitter should be
installed first.

To install a POTS splitter, refer to the appropriate POTS splitter document:
