Next Generation Access Networks - International Perspective

Following the popular article last week on FTTH prospects for the UK, Benoit Felton of Fibrevolution sent us some excellent material looking at the issues from a more international perspective. He says:

In April this year I attended a very interesting conference in Stavänger, Norway, organised by the OECD on Next Generation Access Networks where I conducted a number of interviews with experts. The end result is two podcasts:

The Stavänger Show - Part One: FTTH Policy focuses on the challenges raised by next generation access when it comes to government policy and regulation. The people interviewed are:

Marvin Sirbu, Prof. Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University; Antony Walker, Head of the Broadband Stakeholder’s Group; Grant Forsyth, Head of EMEA Regulatory Affairs at BT Global Services; Dimitri Ypsilanti, responsable for the OECD Working Party on Communications

The Stavänger Show - Part Two: Deployment Models focuses on the various approaches to NGANs, from municipal open access to incumbent vertical integration. The people interviewed are:

Herman Wagter, CEO of Glasvezelnet Amsterdam; Dennis Weller, Chief Economist at Verizon; Christian Berg, Consultant at Dansk Energi; Richard Clarke, AVP of Regulatory Planning and Policy at AT&T
