Abstract
In its overall responsibility as the major network provider in Germany, the Deutsche Bundespost launches all highly sophisticated technologies in order to serve the telecommunication market with those promising services which the national economy require. In this contribution some background information about the objectives can be found. The basic assumptions for the implementation of the future highly efficient, totally integrated universal network achievable by a step-by-step strategy are mentioned and the existing and intended activities pointed out in more detail. As a result, the reader of the article may recognize that there exists a well defined German approach for handling the challenges of the future development in the telecommunication scenario, though not all the trends of technological development can be assessed in detail.
