About the workshop

Optical and wireless systems, which in the past developed as separate network entities with a few standard interfaces, have entered a new phase of development as fully integrated networks. To provide high bandwidth and reliable service for both fixed and mobile users, a well-designed network must take into account both optical and wireless transmission, with efficient allocation of resources and satisfaction of QoS requirements within this hybrid network environment. This Workshop will bring together researchers and developers with presentations on topics including:

  • Optical backhaul from base stations and access points.
  • Cooperative multipoint (CoMP) and similar applications in which base stations and access points communicate with each other through optical links and meshes.
  • Support of microcells and femtocells on optical access networks such as PONs.
  • Analog and digital radio over fiber.
  • End-to-end quality of service continuity across both air and optical interfaces.
  • Energy conservation by opportunistic offloading of wireless traffic onto optical networks.
  • Energy conservation by cooperative sleep-wake mechanisms between optical and wireless network elements.
  • Mapping of OFDM wireless signals into OFDM subcarrier channels in optical access and transmission segments.
  • Joint management of wireless and optical resources.
  • Combination of optical and wireless processing functions in combined edge nodes.
  • Wireless protective overlays and signaling systems on optical transmission systems.
  • Fiber-wireless ad-hoc networks for emergency and first responder communications.
  • Standardization requirements and solutions for interfaces and control signaling in tightly integrated fiber-wireless systems.
