Paper Abstract

A versatile access solution, called the Aline (Access Line), is presented. The system is based on a new concept that allows provision of Bandwidth-on-Demand as well as traditional Constant-Bit-Rate services and is mainly intended for the business area. The Aline aims to promote the penetration of broadband services and the deployment of fiber in the Access area. Scaleability and upgradeability have been carefully addressed to ensure a future-proof solution. At the same time, by supporting different types of traffic and different physical media, this is a flexible solution that meets today's mix of traffic needs.
