Acronym for "Private Access DSL".
PaDSL is a solution for creating secure private broadband VPNs (virtual private network). PaDSL is a cost-effective alternative to traditional frame relay, leased line and ISDN WAN networks. It is most useful to business or organizations who wants to use DSL as an access technology for WAN//VPN objectives without the inherent risk of using the public Internet as the access medium.
The first PaDSL service was launched in the UK by THUS plc.
