Question 18

​Technologies for in-premises networking and related access applications

(Continuation of Questions 15/15, 18/15 & 19/15)

The continuing demand for an ever-increasing device connectivity to offer new services to the customer and to optimize the installation and management of infrastructure will require the development of new networking technologies. As an example, 
Whilst the focus of the group is in-premises networking, some technical developments may be needed to adapt these technologies to other contexts (e.g., access, industrial).

These new technologies will require the development of new Recommendations and enhancements to existing Recommendations covering all requirements and implementation aspects of new deployments. These studies will include, but are not limited to physical layer transport, the transport of higher layer protocols, the management and testing of in-premises systems, security aspects, spectral management aspects and energy saving techniques as well as​ the definition of communication network architectures and requirements.

The following major Recommendations, in force at the time of approval of this Question, fall under its responsibility: 
The target audience for this question are the technology suppliers, chipset vendors, equipment vendors, cable operators, service providers and utilities active in the domain of providing networking solutions for their users or infrastructures. A global audience will be targeted to facilitate a unified approach to to support this broad scope of applications with a single technology, facilitating synergies across application fields.

What performance characteristics should heterogeneous networks possess in order to satisfactorily transport data streams associated with specific services as these streams are passed through the communication network to the terminal device?

What enhancements are needed to the G.9951 through G.9954, G.9960 through G.9964, G.9991, G.995x and G.990x series, G.9972, G.9973, G.9977 and G.9979 Recommendations:
