Funded under: FP6-IST


The European Union has been funding collaborative research and development activities in the 6th Framework Programme (FP 6) that has covered the period of 2002-2006. Activities in the communications field have made significant progress towards advanced communication technologies, systems and services enabling low cost broadband end-to-end connectivity and seamless mobile and wireless access solutions across a range of heterogeneous network infrastructures.
The main objective in the area "Broadband for All", which has been funded by the EU with in total approximately EUR 200 M, has been to develop the network technologies and architectures allowing a generalised and affordable availability of broadband access to European users, including those in less developed regions, peripheral and rural areas. The main outcome from this work is today:
Optimised access technologies, as a function of the operating environment, at affordable prices allowing for a generalized introduction of broadband services also in less developed regions 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.
