The integrated framework provided by PHOENIX study aims at helping to offer the end user a versatile and adaptable secure infrastructure which can satisfy the needs of rich multimedia based applications. This structure will provide more bandwidth efficient transmissions, typically targeting about 3 dB gain in terms of useful signal-to-noise ratio, or conversely about 50% gain in terms of bandwidth. Another aspect is also the possibility to offer the end user differentiated services, based on different classes of services thanks to specific joint controlling of the transmitted data. Such services are believed to be key new elements in a context of bandwidth scarcity for users that are becoming each day more accustomed to receiving wireless services at acceptable costs.
