    Advances in networking and hardware are motivating the development of high bandwidth local access networks that connect subscriber communities to the Information Superhighway. Hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) technology is emerging as one of the few economical viable technologies for designing new local access networks. These HFC local access networks are expected to support a variety of services in dif... View full abstract»

    Market growth for PC multimedia and digital video owes largely to the rapid adoption of ISO compression standards by the industry. For video dial tone (VDT) services, the MPEG-2 set of standards have clearly emerged as the preferred coding method for VDT networks. For point-to-point switched video or multimedia connections, ATM has emerged as the technology of choice for switching and transport. T... View full abstract»

    The emerging interactive video dial tone (VDT) services pose some unique requirements for real-time network monitoring and control. To support the roll-out of VDT-based networks and services, GTE is developing new network management applications on its TONICS (Telephone Operations Network Integrated Control System) platform. TONICS's applications are embedded in a high availability software platfo... View full abstract»

    Video dial tone (VDT) has brought together the diverse approaches of data communications, telephony, and cable television networks. VDT is one of many new terms referring to a group of fast evolving technologies in the area of broadband interactive multimedia. Associated with VDT are a number of other terms and concepts that are combined in new and often inconsistent ways. The article defines what... View full abstract»

    The subscriber terminal unit (STU) receives and decodes video signals and provides interactive support for server-based multimedia applications delivered over a video dial tone network. The STU can be a maddening bottleneck or a gateway to the world. Done properly, it is the vital link that exploits the sophisticated capabilities of the broadband network. We describe the service model upon which a... View full abstract»

    The arrival of asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks has enabled a wide range of new interactive multimedia applications for the residential market. The article presents a vision for supporting universal residential broadband services based on an ATM-to-the-home (ATTH) network architecture. This network architecture applies to the various residential access network (RAN) architectures being de... View full abstract»
