Broadband Access Technologies, Including IMT, for Developing Countries

Final Report [Question 2/1]

image of Broadband Access Technologies, Including IMT, for Developing Countries

This report covers an analysis of factors influencing the effective deployment of wireline and wireless broadband access technologies and applications, and associated guidelines. Many challenges need to be overcome in order to deploy broadband access network, such as ,policy, legacy, existing infrastructures, economic and social impact, educational issues, awareness and knowledge, remote and rural areas, spectrum constraints, standards of living, digital democracy, digital and financial inclusions. From the experiences of many countries we understand that technologies and strategies for implementing telecommunications broadband access networks are various and diversified. New frontiers of Internet of Things (IoT) and Home Networking need the optimization of physical support and spectrum usage for optical/ copper wirelines, and IMT technologies (International Mobile Telecommunications), in order to allocate new high-bandwidth demanding services but taking into account legacy and costs. Public policies and regulatory measures highly contribute to speed up the growth in services by providing access to core network and so to ICT services telecommunications/ICTs, especially in rural and remote areas. Country experiences and recommendations which could be useful for countries to implement broadband access technologies, including IMT, are shared in the report.




ITU Telecommunication Development Sector (ITU-D) study groups provide a neutral contribution-driven platform where experts from governments, industry and academia gather to produce practical tools, useful guidelines and resources to address development issues. Through the work of the ITU-D study groups, ITU-D members study and analyse specific task-oriented telecommunication/ICT questions with an aim to accelerate progress on national development priorities.
