This paper will present a general architecture of a QoS Control system for a heterogeneous network environment, which has return channel for Digital TV and user access network implemented using Power Line Communication - PLC and wireless networks such GSM/GPRS. The application to low-income regions of Latin America and Europe is one requirement of the solution to be adopted that implies directly on the prices to be charged to the customers. The study and development of the presented architecture will be used in the SAMBA project (funded by European Commission) and involving test beds in Brazil and Italy.
