What the context, please? Frequency Division Multiplexing, Time Division Multiplexing, neither and using echo cancellation and extremely clever maths along a metallic path?

I'm dying to know what you mean by "upstream and downstream splits" because its making my brain hurt trying to understand what on earth you could mean.  Splits from what?

the tones were the upstream and downstream change in the dynamic spectrum ..maybe its just in ADLS i dunno but it had a proper name/term which i learned on THIS site I'm sure (may have been ASSIA documents) ita the point where upstream has a white space then downstream

if no one can think of it - forget about it not important - but there IS a term for it, like a split point but a longer better term

@Snadge Is it possible you are thinking of Demarcation point, otherwise known as the Master Socket which of course is nothing to do with Upstream and Downstream split, whatever that may be. ???

Guard band?

This is what threw me as I assumed you were meaning DSL but there isn't necessarily just one split , thus the bandplan that defines which tones are for upstream and which for down.  Also where it splits depends on the annex and DSL version in use.

Is what ADSL uses: does that ring any bells?
