Outcome expected from this work is:
- optimised access technologies, as a function of the operating environment, at affordable price allowing for a generalized introduction of broadband services in Europe and in less developed regions, and notably for the enlarged Europe in line with the eEurope objectives,
- a European consolidated approach regarding regulatory aspects, and for standardized solutions allowing the identification of best practice, and the introduction of low-cost end user and access network equipment.
