This book provides an overview of broadband subscriber access networks and technology

This book provides an overview of broadband subscriber access networks and technology.  After reviewing some of the history and key concepts of broadband access, the authors address the major network/technology options.  The book is divided into three sections.  The chapters in the first section of the book cover technologies and standard protocols for broadband access over fiber-based access networks.  The chapters in the second section cover technologies and standards associated with non-fiber, non-wireless broadband access.  The chapters in the final section of the book address wireless broadband access technology and standards.  Some of these technologies have been widely deployed, while others are anticipated to see deployment soon. 

  • Covers the physical and medium access layers (OSI Layer 1 and 2) with emphasis on access transmission technology
  • Compares and contrasts the emerging IEEE 10 Gbit/s EPON, power line carrier, and wireless standards in a single reference
  • Illustrates the technology that is currently being deployed by network providers and also the technology that has recently been or will soon be standardized for deployment in the coming 5-8 years
  • Contains detailed discussion on fiber optic medium, and copper wire medium and reviews the existing and emerging wireless access technologies for broadband access at different ranges including: IEEE 802.11 WLAN and WiFi, IEEE 802.15 WPAN, IEEE 802.16 WMAN and WiMAX, IEEE 802.20 WWAN and IEEE 802.21 Handover
