The importance of Broadband Communications in shaping the future telecommunication network has achieved world-wide recognition. This volume validates the huge significance of the field and explores key items concerning research, development and applications. The ideas and experiences presented will be of great interest to operators and users, for research and development, from both a technical and a commercial perspective.
