    ABSTRACT: A Telcordia Analysis of an Integrated Broadband Home Network

    This Telcordia Special Report (SR) takes readers from the world of multiple, autonomous home networks to an integrated broadband
    network that supports multiple HDTV streams, while allowing easy and inexpensive service provisioning and assurance, and effective
    protection for the home and access networks.

    • Discusses the Critical Importance of a Home Network Infrastructure, such as bandwidth; the sorts of media that could be used in
      the home to support a broadband home network; and the LAN technologies that could exploit these media

    • Details the Elements of Home Network Infrastructure, including Topology, Media, and LAN Technology

    • Compares In-Place Media, such as Coax, Telephone Line, Power Line, and Wireless

    • Evaluates Other Media, such as Unshielded Twisted-pair Cable and Plastic Optical Fiber

    • Addresses the demands that forthcoming HDTV will place on the home.

    This SR provides recommendations for a broadband home network that must operate at data rates that are an order of magnitude
    greater than current wireless LANs.

    SR-5304 is an essential document for telecom managers and engineers interested in delivering broadband solutions to home network
    devices, as well as manufacturers of home network end devices.

    Written by Telcordia's Dr. Steven G. Ungar.

    Since 1995, Dr. Ungar has been the lead Telcordia systems engineer on home networking, residential gateways, and home network security.
    He has been active in developing many U.S. National and International standards, and has chaired sessions at technical conferences in
