Synopsis

Archived report. Open networks are slowly becoming accepted as the next step in the evolution of telecoms infrastructure as it gives users full control of the services and applications that can be made available over high-speed broadband infrastructure. Open networks also mean a democratisation of the telecoms infrastructure. The topology and the architecture of the open network should be such that infrastructure, service and content providers can all offer higher quality and different ‘premium’ products and services.

This report analyses the importance of Open Networks for a successful telecoms industry and provides an example of Open Access Principles. The report also discusses how it is time the USO and USF polices were reviewed.

Latest developments:

The main reason for the present debate around the concept of open telecommunications networks is that the current ‘closed’ networks are perceived to be the natural state of affairs, even though they were in large part only put in place during the past ten years. It is time we broke away from this mindset, which stems mainly from the technological limitations that existed in the past.
