(Continuation of Question 4/15)
The continuing customer demand for ever higher bit rate data services,
high-speed Internet access and other innovative services, and the ongoing needs
of network operators to fully exploit their installed base of copper cables,
will require the development of new Recommendations and enhancements to existing
Recommendations covering all aspects of Digital Subscriber Line and in-premises
Networking Transceivers. These studies will include, but are not limited to, the
transport of higher layer protocols, the management and test of the access
systems, spectral management aspects and energy saving techniques.
The following major Recommendations, in force at the time of approval of this
Question, fall under its responsibility: G.991.n series, G.992.n series, G.993.n
series, G.994.1, G.995.1, G.996.1, G.997.1, G.998.n series, G.995x series.
What enhancements are needed to the G.99x and G.995x series of Recommendations:
- in the light of design, network deployment experience, and evolving service
- to optimise the transport of IP-based services?
What new Recommendations are needed:
- for transceivers for customer access over metallic pairs?
- for transceivers for in-premises networking over metallic conductors such as
phone-line, coaxial, data (e.g. CAT5) and power cables?
- to carry out line testing?
- to enable higher bit rates to be achieved by means of pair bonding?
What enhancements to existing Recommendations are required to provide energy
savings directly or indirectly in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs)
or in other industries?
What enhancements to developing or new Recommendations are required to provide
such energy savings?
Study items include, but are not limited to:
- Modulation and transport techniques, tools for spectrum management (including
dynamic spectrum management), real noise environments, handshaking procedures,
testing procedures, physical layer management procedures, energy saving
- These studies should take account of the different regulatory environments
around the world.
- Transceiver to higher layer inter-connection techniques
These studies will include any specific requirements:
- to optimise the transport of IP-based services
- to optimise the transport of Ethernet based services
- to support the management of access and in-premises networking systems and
equipment operating over metallic conductors
Tasks include, but are not limited to:
Maintenance and enhancements of existing Recommendations and production of new
Recommendations in the G.99x and G.995x series.
