Project: Fully-Converged Quintuple-Play Integrated Optical-Wireless Access Architectures

Acronym: FIVER
File: news@it_December2012.pdf
Main Objective: i) to propose a streamlined optical access and radio network architecture with extended range, simplified implementation and deployment;
ii) to develop combined fibre and radio transmission centralised impairment compensation extending the FTTH range to > 100 km;
iii) to enable single, end-to-end management architecture along the FTTH access network of the complete photonic and radio access paths;
iv) to provide converger OFDM-baseband, medium-range WiMAX and short-range UWB and cellular LTE on a conventional wavelength division-duplexed (WDD) and a reflective-electroabsorption transceiver (R-EAT) based network architecture;
v) to demonstrate the feasible network operation with signals (UWB) in the 60 GHz radio band;
vi) to create an open house showroom in order to shown the approach benefits to the general public.
