Paper Abstract

The future widescale deployment of broadband multiservice networks is dependent on an acceptable commercial relationship being achieved between new service revenues, operating cost savings and the network capital investment required. A new generation of broadband access networks is envisaged which is capable of both broadband and narrowband transmission, and can provide both broadcast and interactive services over a much larger coverage area than copper pair yet makes good use of existing copper pair infrastructure. To ensure that such networks emerge practically and are economically viable, requirements must be agreed and a wide market established. The aims of this paper are to draw attention to the benefits of networks with broadband and narrowband capability, to discuss the benefits of co- operation on requirements and to describe what has so far been achieved in the standards bodies.
