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

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

Objective

FIVER project proposes and develops a novel integrated access network architecture employing only OFDM signals for the provision of quintuple play services (Internet, phone/voice, HDTV, wireless -WiMAX, UWB and LTE femtocell- and home security/control). FIVER architecture is completely integrated: The optical access FTTH, the in-home optical distribution network and the final radio link become part of the access network. This permits a streamlined network architecture avoiding most of the conversion stages and proving cost, space and energy savings.FIVER is a fully OFDM based network. This permits cost effective, fully centralised network architecture where the transmission impairment (both optical and radio) compensation and network management is done in only at the Central Office. No further compensation, regeneration or format conversion is required along the network giving a streamlined network architecture capable of handling future services of interest.FIVER services are fully converged: Both baseband (Gigabit-Ethernet provision) and standard wireless (WiMAX, UWB and LTE) radio-over-fibre signals are transmitted in radio-over-fibre through the FTTH, the in-building optical infrastructure and also the final user radio link. The use of full-standard wireless signals for optical and radio transmission gives two advantages: Fully standard receiver equipment can be used by the customer, and no ad hoc detection, re modulation or frequency conversion is required. All the transmission compensation algorithms, electro optical subsystems and network management are developed by FIVER consortium.FIVER architecture is future-proof. The project demonstrates HDTV service provision in the 60 GHz radio band at the last stage. Other wireless services operation in other bands can be included in the FIVER network architecture as long as they are OFDM.-based. This is due to the powerful transmission impairment compensation algorithms developed in the project.
