Paper Abstract

This paper brings together three concepts which together can be applied to tomorrow's broadband, mostly digital video, networks and services. These concepts are: high speed burst transmission of digital video from storage or service centers to local access or delivery networks, use of a ATM-threaded circuit switched paths for efficient transmission of blocks of digital video, and use of quadrature amplitude modulation methods to deliver digital video and data to the home, business or institution via fiber feeders and coaxial cable or twisted pair drops. Some business enabling factors and potential social implications of broadband services to the home are summarized.
