Studies in telecommunications regulation and ONP

In the context of the implementation of the telecommunications policy proposals laid down in COM(87) 290 and COM(88) 48 on the development of the common market for telecommunications services and equipment and the subsequent Council Directive (90/387/EEC), the Commission of the European Communities intends to launch studies in the area of telecommunications regulation and Open Network Provision (ONP). The three studies will cover:
- Application of ONP to metropolitan area networks (MANs), frame relay and advanced transmission networks and their services;
- The economic and market impact of applying ONP principles to specific ISDN interfaces;
- Application of ONP concepts to the local loop of the public telephone network (analysis of all aspects of the availability of the local loop, in current and future technologies, in relation to telecommunications services provision and to the application of ONP).
An invitation to tender for each of these studies will be sent in due course to those who have expressed interest.
