Abstract

Telecommunications are quickly evolving as new options appear. The normal evolution of technology renders a full basket of services that users already demand and will continue to demand in the future. Customers require larger aggregates of bandwidth and a larger control over the choice of their information providers / correspondents. While business customers’ service requirements are well understood, those related to the residential customers present many issues that need to be resolved. This paper puts forward some fiber technology solutions to accommodate anticipated residential applications.
