Abstract
The Broadband Integrated Services Digital Network (BISDN) based on lightwave technology is expected to become the platform for all-purpose exchange area communications. It is likely that for residential applications high-quality television transmission will initially present the majority of traffic to the BISDN network. The transport of High-Definition Television (HDTV) must be achieved economically, and this requirement has an important influence on the overall BISDN design. In this paper, we present an overview of the emerging BISDN, examine its architecture, networking and control capabilities, and address various issues related to the transport of HDTV on this new broadband network.
