Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in May 2005 and has not been updated. The past few years have seen an accent on providing infrastructure to link cities, but much less effort to distribute within cities. This report deals with the consumer needs and the technologies available to address this deficiency, including the replacement of copper with fibre, full utilisation of IP, optical switching, the use of lasers, intelligent networks etc. It also provides an extensive analysis by Paul on the need to develop the local loops quickly and intelligently, and the factors hindering this.
