MUSE is a large integrated R&D project on Broadband Access. Within the 6th Framework Programme, MUSE contributes to the strategic objective "Broadband for All" of IST (Information Society Technologies) and it is partially funded by the European Commission.

The overall objective of MUSE is the research and development of a future, low cost, multi-service access network. The access network should provide secure connectivity between end-user terminals and edge nodes in a multi-provider environment. It should be suited for the ubiquitous delivery of broadband services to every European citizen.

MUSE aims at a consensus view of the future access and edge network achieved by the co-operative research of almost all major players in Europe in the area of Broadband Access.

The project addresses the network architecture, techno-economics, access nodes, solutions for the first mile, and interworking with the home network. Solutions will be evaluated in end-to-end lab trials and promoted in standardisation.

36 Partners - 28 Organisations

 over the two phases of the project


5 System Vendors

2 Component Vendors

9 Telecom Operators

2 Small & Medium Enterprises

  10 Universities & Research Institutes
