The need for value added and differentiated services such as video-telephony, internet TV .etc in the broadband access hardware continue to increase rapidly nowadays, so the authors need to analyze the capabilities of the broad band access network architecture whether it can meet the design challenges for providing triple - play services (e.g. video on demand, voice IP).these services generally consumes very high bandwidth, highly delay sensitive and requires efficient hardware. Most of the service provider based broad band access network has a DSLAM which is a high end network multiplexer; a DSLAM should be completely analyzed based on the following design challenges such as bandwidth scalability, packet scheduling with less complexity, Quality of Service (QoS) assurance and a good application support.
