In a new research project of the Heinrich-Hertz-Institut Berlin (HHI) an experimental local area broadband network utilizing optical switching techniques has been designed and will be installed as a laboratory system. The local optical communication network-LOCNET-will support narrowband services like ISDN telephone and data communication with 64 kbit/s, high speed data communication up to some 4 Mbit/s (so called mediumband services) and broadband services like videophone and other services with transmission rates up to 216 Mbit/s and even more. The authors give a description of the network and its capabilities.
