 REF-ADSL-300hzsmall.gifIndicates a voice-call signal.

 REF-ADSL-25mhz300hzsmall.gifIndicates mixed voice-call and ADSL signals.

Coloured lines are used represent the type of premises wiring as indicated below.

Standard twisted-pair telephony cable.
A network (Cat-5 or Cat-5e or Cat-6) cable.

The majority of telephone premises-wiring uses star-wired  or parallel-wired configurations. In a star-wired configuration the telephones are all wired back to a "master" socket or distribution box. In a parallel-wired configuration, the cable run passes sequentially from socket to socket at each telephone.
