Growth driver information and communication technologies: Modern communication technologies are important trade and production factors for industrial nations such as Germany. Germany has excellent potential for even greater economic growth by increasing the deployment of information and communication technologies. By 2011, onethird of Germany’s increased productivity is expected to be due to adoption of broadband technologies and corresponding services. Top-down development of facility-based competition: Due to the adoption of broadband technologies, narrowband voice telephony has become less important. The convergence of all media to IP-based transmission will result in an increased demand for transmission capacities and therefore creates the potential for facility-based market entry. To satisfy this increased demand, a new network architecture is needed. Transition from traditional PSTN to an IP-based data network occurs in stages, based on capacity requirements. The changeover should begin on the highest concentration levels of the network and end by the last mile which connects the end users to the network.
