Abstract

This paper discusses the Open Access Network paradigm, whereby surplus capacity from residential DSL and fibre connections is made available for a public mobile service based on WLAN-technology. In this vision, a subscriber on-the-move can seamlessly traverse urban and suburban environments, while meeting needed QoS and security constraints, with connectivity based on residential WLANs. The approach represents a potentially cost-effective route towards 4G objectives.
