Paper Abstract

Concentration in the telephony network has traditionally been done at the local digital switch and seldom done in the distribution portion of the network. With the availability of integrated digital loop carrier systems conforming to TR- 303 in the U.S. and V5.2 internationally, service providers have the choice of concentrating at the switch or in the distribution network. Concentration in the distribution portion of the network is particularly attractive in a hybrid fiber coax (HFC) network because it tends to drive the HFC telephony common equipment cost lower. This paper compares the different options and analyzes the benefits of concentration in the distribution.
