As broadband gains widespread adoption with residential users, revenue generating voice- and video-services have not yet taken off. This slow uptake is often attributed to lack of Quality of Service management in residential broadband networks. To resolve this and induce service variety, network access providers are implementing service differentiation in their networks where voice and video gets prioritised before data.
This paper discusses the role of network access providers in multipurpose packet based networks and the available migration strategies for supporting multimedia services in digital subscriber line (DSL) based residential broadband networks. Four possible implementation scenarios and their technical characteristics and effects are described. To conclude, the paper discusses how network access providers can be induced to open their networks for third party service providers.
