Full Service - VDSL (FS-VDSL)
Focus Group
The ITU-T has established a new Focus Group under Study Group 16. This is known as the Full Service – VDSL (FS-VDSL) Focus Group. The Focus Group was formally approved at the meeting of Study Group 16 in October 2002. The goal of the Focus Group is to develop a set of ITU-T Recommendations to define a new multi-service video-centric network platform based upon VDSL delivery in the access network, which will enable operators and service providers to quickly and economically provide end-users with a rich mix of video, data, and voice services.

More information on the background to the Focus Group can be found here: and the Terms of Reference for the Focus Group can be found here:

The Focus Group had its first meeting in San Francisco, CA, USA, 5-6 September 2002, and during this meeting it approved a set of five FS-VDSL Focus Technical Group Specifications (FGTS) which can be found here: Some of the FS-VDSL FGTS will be progressed into ITU-T Recommendations. In support of these activities, an email reflector and an associated FTP area have been established. More details can be found here.

The FS-VDSL Focus Group developed a series of White Papers that provide an overview of the FS-VDSL specifications. There can be found here:

The Focus Group also has its own web-site: where further information can be found.
