Question 18

​Broadband in-premises networking

(Continuation of Question 18/15 & 19/15 (ex Q9/9 in 2013-2016))

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 leverage in-premises connectivity for distributing within the home IPTV and other applications, will require the development of new Recommendations and enhancements to existing Recommendations covering all requirements and implementation aspects of in-premises Networking Transceivers. These studies will include, but are not limited to, the transport of higher layer protocols, the management and testing of in-premises systems, security aspects, 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: J.190 through J.192, G.9951 through G.9954, G.9960 through G.9964, G.9972, G.9973, G.9977 and G.9979.

The target audience for this question are the technology suppliers, chipset vendors, equipment vendors, cable operators and service providers active in the domain of providing broadband in-premises networking. A global audience is targeted to facilitate a unified approach to the broadband in-premises networking.

What performance characteristics should broadband in-premises networks possess in order to satisfactorily transport data streams associated with specific services as these streams are passed between access network and the in-premises network and across the in-premises network to the terminal device?

What enhancements are needed to the G.9951 through G.9954, G.9960 through G.9964, G.9972, G.9973, G.9977 and G.9979 Recommendations:
