Paper Abstract

This paper presents a technology and architecture perspective of the cost of evolving today's copper access network, optimized for POTS, to a fiber access network providing both narrowband and broadband services. Architectures are assessed using application studies based on cost models for actual routes in North America. This study identifies three architectures as serious candidates (i.e., close to copper in cost) for providing POTS service in 1992: the double star, the active pedestal and the star-bus.
