The NGN interconnection problem is best understood, not as a problem of technology, but rather as a problem in economics. With that in mind, this report seeks to review what is known about interconnection from an economic perspective, in order to reach conclusions about the prospects for deployment going forward and the corresponding implications for policymakers.
This paper does not contain technical economic analysis, even though a quick scan of the footnotes shows that it is grounded in the classic economic theory of interconnection. I look forward to reading it in detail, and to your comments on its content.
