Both an introductory course to broadband dielectric spectroscopy and a monograph describing recent dielectric contributions to current topics, this book is the first to cover the topic and has been hotly awaited by the scientific community.
Broadband is a key enabler of the information society, increasing productivity and competitiveness across all sectors of the economy. Unlike traditional n- rowband connections, broadband provides high speed, always-on connections to the Internet and supports innovative content and services. Direct consumer welfare gains from mass-market adoption of broadband across the EU could easily reach 50 billion euros or more per annum. This is quite apart from the more profound societal shifts that ubiquitous broadband could bring. It may allow the individual to distribute content and ideas independent of traditional media and bring together communities of interest without regard to borders. Public policy for broadband will have a big impact on whether and how quickly these bene?ts are realised. Getting policy right could bring large bene?ts for consumers, ?rms and the economy at large; getting policy wrong risks s- ?ing both the rollout of broadband and new innovative services, and thus the realisation of the EUs e-Europe vision. In this book, we focus on the residential market for broadband access in EU countries, analysing the current and prospective level of competition and dr- ing implications for public policy. A key aim is to understand better the relative importance of facilities-based and access-based provision in fostering com- tition and promoting take-up of broadband services.
Broadband communications is widely recognized as one of the most revolutionary emerging technologies of the last decade of the 20th century. This book provides a comprehensive snapshot of leading-edge research across a structured set of topics vital to broadband communications infrastructure for the information age.
This book delivers insights for immediate action on two levels: The management perspective addresses the economic feasibility, while the legal perspective provides municipal decision-makers with FAQ-type guidelines for the swift implementation and legal applicability of rural broadband rollout solutions.

Broadband optical access network is an ideal solution to alleviate the first/last mile bottleneck of current Internet infrastructures. Richly illustrated throughout to help clarify important topics, Broadband Optical Access Networks covers the architectures, protocols enabling technologies of broadband optical access networks, and all current and future competing technologies for access networks. This comprehensive work presents the evolution of optical access networks, including reach extension, bandwidth enhancement, and discusses the convergence of optical and wireless technologies for broadband access, making it an invaluable reference for researchers, electrical engineers, and graduate students.
Written by experts in the field, this book provides an overviewof all forms of broadband subscriber access networks andtechnology, including fiber optics, DSL for phone lines, DOCSIS forcoax, power line carrier, and wireless. Each technology isdescribed in depth, with a discussion of key concepts, historicaldevelopment, and industry standards. The book containscomprehensive coverage of all broadband access technologies, with asection each devoted to fiber-based technologies, non-fiber wiredtechnologies, and wireless technologies. The four co-authors´breadth of knowledge is featured in the chapters comparing therelative strengths, weaknesses, and prognosis for the competingtechnologies. Key Features: * Covers the physical and medium access layers (OSI Layer 1 and2), with emphasis on access transmission technology * Compares and contrasts all recent and emerging wired andwireless standards for broadband access in a single reference * Illustrates the technology that is currently being deployed bynetwork providers, and also the technology that has recently beenor will soon be standardized for deployment in the coming years,including vectoring, wavelength division multiple access, CDMA,OFDMA, and MIMO * Contains detailed discussion on the following standards:10G-EPON, G-PON, XG-PON, VDSL2, DOCSIS 3.0, DOCSIS Protocol overEPON, power line carrier, IEEE 802.11 WLAN/WiFi, UMTS/HSPA, LTE,and LTE-Advanced
Japan´s high-speed Internet access services such as ADSL, CATV Internet and FTTH are considered the cheapest and fastest state-of-the-art services drawing international attention. In this book the author introduces the current status of broadband services in Japan and their recent development in competition policy. An econometric model is proposed and discussed to analyse access demand. The purpose of the analysis is to understand quantitively the current status of the rapidly developing Japanese broadband services while providing an academic and practical basis for conceiving prospective competition policies. The book is composed of three parts. The first part introduces the diffusion of current Broadband services, the economics of network industries and related econometric model analysis. The second part elucidates in detail the development of fixed-line broadband services, IP phone services as well as mobile phone services. The third part consequently investigates the migration among broadband services, the fixed and mobile convergence and the digital divide problem.
Broadband communication expands our opportunities for entertainment, e-commerce and work at home, health care, education, and even e-government. It can make the Internet more useful to more people. But it all hinges on higher capacity in the ´´first mile´´ or ´´last mile´´ that connects the user to the larger communications network. That connection is often adequate for large organizations such as universities or corporations, but enhanced connections to homes are needed to reap the full social and economic promise. ´´Broadband: Bringing Home the Bits´´ provides a contemporary snapshot of technologies, strategies, and policies for improving our communications and information infrastructure. It explores the potential benefits of broadband, existing and projected demand, progress and failures in deployment, competition in the broadband industry, and costs and who pays them. Explanations of broadband´s alphabet soup - HFC, DSL, FTTH, and all the rest - are included as well. The report´s finding and recommendations address regulation, the roles of communities, needed research, and other aspects, including implications for the Telecommunications Act of 1996.

Mobile Broadband: Including WiMAX and LTE provides an overview of IP-OFDMA technology, commencing with cellular and IP technology for the uninitiated while providing a foundation for OFDMA theory and emerging technologies, such as WiMAX, LTE, and beyond. Features include: * A coherent and systematic discussion of all aspects of Mobile Broadband Wireless, * Thorough information on OFDMA and All-IP Networking with its present technology in 4G, * Information to assist industry professionals in understanding the convergence of core access networks, device convergence and service convergence. Throughout the book the author also discusses several wireless standards based on OFDMA such as UMB, IEEE 802.16j (Mobile Multihop Relay) and 802.16m (Gigabit WiMAX), IEEE 802.20 (MBWA), and IEEE 802.22 (Cognitive Radio). The book brings a good balance of theory, technology and practice of mobile broadband.
