Title: Access network over a dedicated medium

Abstract: A network terminal and an Internet Protocol IP access node in an access network. The network terminal gives instant access to a multitude of communication services such as telephony, video, data, multi media as well as services provided by Internet. In the access network IP is used as an internal multiplexing and transport technique. The speed at which data is transported on the access line is limited by the used modem technique, not by the restrictions posed by the general public switched telephone network. Several terminals may be connected to one and the same access line.
