ABSTRACT: This release in the popular Telcordia Notes on . . . series of documents, Telcordia Notes on CPE for Next Generation Network Access,
looks at the end-user customer premises equipment available for accessing a Next Generation Network (NGN). Often referred to as a
Customer Gateway (CGW) or an Integrated Access Device (IAD), these devices allow a user to access network-provided voice and data
services via a packet-based broadband access facility. This document examines the functionality required of such devices and provides
a survey of currently available products.
With Telcordia Notes on CPE for Next Generation Network Access, you will learn about:
- The evolution of NGN
- NGN architecture and current status of deployment
- Hybrid architectures
This document also contains CGW and IAD Product Information and provides the capabilities of each product. A comprehensive Glossary
and Reference List are included.
With the Notes on . . . series, Telcordia Technologies has devised a starting point for your search through the rapidly developing
world of telecommunications. Written by the authors of the successful Telcordia Notes on the Network document SR-2275, this series
similarly contains technical material of interest to engineering and planning groups, as well as descriptions of the characteristics
and background of these subjects in layman's terms. The difference is that Telcordia Notes on . . . zeros in on one technology in each
document and breaks it down into manageable terms. From the history, background, and basic elements through a discussion of what the
future may bring, our subject matter experts cover the important aspects in as few words as possible.
