The objective of PLANET is to define a cost effective full-service access network for the year 2000 supporting a large splitting factor (up to 2000) and covering a wide range (up to 100km). The access network needs to give subscribers access to both narrow band / broad band, and distributive / interactive services. The main rationale behind the development of such an access network is twofold. For the long term evolution of the core network, an extensive node consolidation is expected since switching cost decreases with the size of the switching site. In addition, due to the high number of users which can be connected to a single network, some significant gain in bandwidth can be achieved due to statistical multiplexing.
During the project a laboratory demonstrator and a small field trial will be realised.
