COMANDER aims at bringing together experts from the industry and academia with the long-term goal of delivering a state of the art, cutting-edge and cost-efficient approach to the problem of Next-Generation access Networks (NGN) design. The design of NGN has since long dictated the necessity to merge the currently distinct optical and wireless infrastructures into an amalgamated network capable of offering the best part of both worlds: the stability and ultra-high speeds of optical fiber networks with the agility and flexibility of wireless networks. To achieve this goal COMANDER employs a novel design that builds upon the Radio-over-Fiber paradigm, and proposes all the necessary solutions to overcome the existing limitations. Moreover COMANDER goes beyond the architectural convergence by addressing for the first time the matter of NGN intelligence that will unleash the full capabilities of the unified Fiber-Wireless architecture. The scale and diversity of the NGN vision calls for the cooperation of many interdisciplinary experts from the fields of optical communications, wireless engineering, protocol design, network coding and simulation that up to now operated independently. COMANDER achieves these objectives via the fruitful collaboration of four partners, two from academia, i.e. Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) and Technical University Berlin (TUB), and two SMEs, i.e. PhoeniX Software B.V. (PHX) and iQuadrat (IQU). As a whole, the partners have consolidated and complementary expertise in the engineering, design, analysis, simulation and experimentation that are demanded to fulfill the project’s goals."
