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)
partially funded by the European Commission.
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.
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.
