Advanced Multimedia Services for Residential Users

Main Objective
The aim of the AMUSE project is to carry out experiments on the provision of interactive and distributive multimedia services to real residential users (in the order of ten per trial island). Services will be demonstrated in field trials carried out in different islands, using a state-of-the-art end-to-end ATM infrastructure (from Terminal Equipment to Multimedia Server), through various types of Access Networks.

A number of experiments are planned to thoroughly assess both service and technology aspects related to the adopted delivery platforms.

Technical Approach
The project will consist of two phases, each one resulting in demonstrations as follows :

First demonstration phase

Second demonstration phase

Besides collecting results to validate the viability of the adopted solutions, a discussion Forum on Contents and Services will be set up, involving content and service providers in order to assess indications for content creation/delivery.

Summary of Trial
User trials involving real residential users are foreseen in the project framework, relying on different national trial islands. Each trial will be characterised by different access network typologies (ADSL, HFC, FTTC/FTTB, ATM PON, HFR), service offerings, categories of users and national regulatory rules and constraints.
