Paper Abstract

The most interesting feature of the new videocommunication networks is their ability to carry interactive services in addition to the classical distributed ones. This is achieved using various architectures which are discussed here together whith their main characteristics. As services and traffic demands are expected to expand over the next years, the technical solutions must lead to upgreadable network capacity. Several upgreaded network architectures are presented including fiber share and the emerging coherent techniques. Finally, a technico-economic approach is made based on a common geometrical model, in order to distinguish the most cost-effective configurations.
