Abstract
Future broadband access networks in the 5G framework will need to be bilateral, exploiting both optical and wireless technologies. This paper deals with new approaches and synergies on radio-over-fiber (RoF) technologies and how those can be leveraged to seamlessly converge wireless technology for agility and mobility with passive optical networks for stability, extended coverage and ultra-high speeds. The proposed convergence paradigm is based upon a holistic network architecture mixing mm-wave...
