The Common Functional Specifications (CFS) contain the framework of the synthesised results of Part I of the RACE programme. They are a compendium of principles and guidelines on the IBC concept, as well as of detailed specifications of services, interfaces and network elements. They address telecommunications issues in the context of the public network only. They are generated by the RACE technical workshops. This document, the fifth of issue A, describes IBC access and interfaces at the T-reference point (physical layer, ATM layer and meta-signalling protocol), optical interfaces for the customer access network, metropolitan area networks (MAN) and optical user network interfaces for High Speed Digital TV (HD TV) using TDM and WDM, HDWDM and coherent multichannel systems (CMC).
