Broadband

View this topic in
The term broadband refers to a telecommunications signal or device of greater bandwidth, in some sense, than another standard or usual signal or device (and the broader the band, the greater the capacity for traffic). Different criteria for "broad" have been applied in different contexts and at different times. (Wikipedia.org)

  • Broadband Behavior of Fundamental Components of ASD

    The analysis of generation and propagation of conducted emission in ASDs applications requires the recognition of impedance characteristics of all essential sub‐components within adequately wide frequency range. Conducted emission is defined by standards as spectral characteristic of CM voltages measured at input terminals of devices connected to the power grid. Therefore, particularly meaningful are CM impedances which in ASD mainly depend on parasitic capacitive couplings of drive components in relation the ground. At the stage of application of ASDs, to the FC ‐ as already assembled and fixed device ‐ external components are connected. These external components are individually selected to fulfill ASD application requirements and can differ significantly, especially in terms of broadband behavior which is usually not sufficiently specified by manufactures. Therefore, identification of broadband impedance characteristics of external ASD components is a crucial preparative stage of for analysis of conducted emission.

  • Broadband and Multiband Reflectarray Antennas

    This chapter presents the design methodologies that have been developed for broadband and multiband reflectarrays. To design a reflectarray, the phase of the reflected wave should have a progressive variation over the whole surface, essentially implying that a full phase cycle should be used for the reflection coefficient. Traditionally, the reflectarray phasing elements are designed with unit‐cell sizes around half a wavelength. The chapter addresses the bandwidth limitations of reflectarrays with a focus on element performance improvement. Although printed reflectarrays are limited by bandwidth performance, there are a variety of different techniques to provide coverage of multi‐frequency bands. Intuitively, the characteristic of multiband operation can be implemented by the assembly of several sub‐arrays, each operating at a single frequency. The chapter briefly introduces two recent designs of multiband reflectarrays namely: a single‐layer dual‐band circularly polarized reflectarray and a single‐layer tri‐band reflectarray.

  • Broadband Internet: the Basis for NGN

    The world is becoming more and more dependent on broadband access to Internet due to its importance for economic growth and development. The ITU has highlighted the importance of "broadband" by identifying the broadband as a key target initiative in the second decade of the 21st century. This chapter covers ITU's work on broadband, as well as ADSL standards as the first real broadband technology to open up an entirely new experience for a new generation of Internet users. Continuing work in broadband access is focused on standards in fiber optics such as Fiber‐To‐The‐Home (FTTH) optical access networks, including passive and active optical networks, as well as Metro Ethernet Networks which are being widely deployed by carriers. Finally, chapter discusses regulation and business approaches in broadband which are targeted to universal broadband affordability globally. Overall, broadband access is a requirement and at the same time main driver towards the Next Generation Networks (NGN).

  • Towards a Unified 5G Broadcast‐Broadband Architecture

    TV broadcasting and mobile broadband are undoubtedly essential parts of today's society. Both of them are now facing tremendous challenges to cope with the future demands. In the United Kingdom, Germany, Ireland and Poland the digital satellite platform is the largest TV platform. However, regardless of whether consumers are using digital satellite or DTT to receive their TV content, neither of these platforms currently meets the needs of a growing non‐linear, truly on‐demand consumption paradigm. Both satellite and High‐Power High‐Tower Digital TV (DTV) infrastructure have been designed for a one‐to‐many architecture with limited scope for feedback channels and user‐controlled scheduling, especially in mobile and portable situations. Hybrid approaches including mobile broadband are, however, developing progressively in a large number of countries. TV and mobile broadband have strong similarities in their challenges. Moreover, the recent trend in TV consumption patterns suggests that the TV of the future will be quite similar to the mobile broadband of the coming years in many aspects. Both services have to provide the customer with (ultra‐)high quality video in a dynamic and interactive manner. This necessitates an efficient solution for converged broadcast and mobile broadband services. In order to address these challenges, some candidate network architectures for future terrestrial TV distribution have been proposed, including a clean‐slate approach (all broadband), hybrid and common converged system. However, it is suggested that substantial further study is required to evaluate the benefit of these architectures and to develop a better solution out of the existing ones. In this chapter, we emph asise the current challenges facing the broadcasting and mobile industries to deliver next generation TV services, and provide an overview of these architectures that could potentially be adopted to provide a 'win‐win' Broadcast‐Broadband (BC‐BB) convergence solution for 5G networks.

  • Basic Concepts of Broadband Communication Networks

    **An authoritative introduction to the roles of switching and transmission in broadband integrated services networks** _Principles of Broadband Switching and Networking_ explains the design and analysis of switch architectures suitable for broadband integrated services networks, emphasizing packet-switched interconnection networks with distributed routing algorithms. The text examines the mathematical properties of these networks, rather than specific implementation technologies. Although the pedagogical explanations in this book are in the context of switches, many of the fundamental principles are relevant to other communication networks with regular topologies. After explaining the concept of the modern broadband integrated services network and why it is necessary in today's society, the book moves on to basic switch design principles, discussing two types of circuit switch design--space domain and time domain--and packet switch design. Throughp t improvements are illustrated by some switch design variations such as Speedup principle, Channel-Grouping principle, Knockout principle, and Dilation principle. Moving seamlessly into advanced switch design principles, the book covers switch scalability, switch design for multicasting, and path switching. Then the focus moves to broadband communications networks that make use of such switches. Readers receive a detailed introduction on how to allocate network resources and control traffic to satisfy the quality of service requirements of network users and to maximize network usage. As an epilogue, the text shows how transmission noise and packet contention have similar characteristics and can be tamed by comparable means to achieve reliable communication. _Principles of Broadband Switching and Networking_ is written for senior undergraduate and first-year postgraduate students with a solid background in probability theory.

  • Customer Price Sensitivity to Broadband Service Speed: What are the Implications for Public Policy?

    Accessing many applications over a broadband pipe produces diverse traffic patterns among users in comparison to traditional voice service. The focus of this chapter is whether it is in the financial interest of application providers as a group to buy down end user charges. Application providers, as a group, may be willing to subsidize end users if two conditions hold: first, end users are price sensitive to the cost of broadband speeds; and second subsidization of end users must be competitively neutral across providers and across networks. Buying down of end user charges could be done through a universal broadband fund such as the newly established Connect America Fund (CAF). Lower prices may boost demand for broadband services at higher speeds. The chapter aims at estimating price elasticities of demand for different speed service packages purchased by broadband users.

  • Broadband in Gas Line (BIG)

    Broadband in gas line (BIG) has been proposed as an alternative broadband access technology using natural gas pipelines as a microwave waveguide from a network access node to customer's homes and businesses. The leading proponent of BIG technology is the StartUp company Nethercomm Corp. Ultra‐wideband radio technology has been proposed for BIG. BIG shares the same marketing drawback as broadband power line (BPL). Like fiber to the home (FTTH), BIG lacks native distribution within the home. The BIG modem by the gas meter could use IEEE 802.11 (WiFi) with a directional antenna to distribute wireless signals throughout the house. However, given the typical location for the gas meter, the WiFi signal quality could be poor for some parts of the house. The possibility of using sewage pipes as a microwave waveguide has also been discussed, but it is not known if its implementation is practical.

  • Wireless Broadband Access: Air Interface Fundamentals

    This chapter provides the groundwork needed to understand the technologies that have evolved for wireless broadband access, by discussing various concepts that form the basis of modern wireless communication systems. The chapter discusses duplexing techniques used to support two‐way communications. It explores the basic building blocks that comprise the physical layer of a robust wireless communication system, and concepts pertaining to shared access of the medium. The chapter introduces multi‐antenna systems and discusses how such systems provide a way to extract maximum efficiency out of limited spectrum resources. It talks about several general concepts that apply to wireless access. Wireless communications use a shared medium and, as such, mechanisms are required for coordinated use of the spectrum. This coordination includes multiple access techniques that permit multiple communication links to coexist without interference. The chapter explains algorithms such as link adaptation and scheduling, and describes a satellite‐based broadband access system.
