This paper describes the technical aspects of optical access solutions for mobile fronthaul application. The mobile context and main constraints of fronthaul signals are presented. The need for a demarcation point between the Mobile operator and the Fiber provider is introduced. The optical solution to achieve such a network is discussed. A WDM network with… (More)
With the recent increase of the number of Fiber-to-the-Home deployments worldwide, and the corresponding huge investment in infrastructure, there is a need to devise a migration path that assures the full future usability and enhanced performance of the installed fiber plant, possibly using emerging opto-electronic technologies. With this aim, within the… (More)
We report system simulation and experimental results on enhanced transmission distance over standard single mode fiber thanks to a novel dual modulation technique that generates a wideband optical single side band orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OSSB-OFDM) signal using a low-cost, integrated , dual RF access electro-absorption modulated laser.… (More)
We propose a passive architecture mixing G-PON and VDSL2 technologies. We evaluate a single-user per port FTTdp prototype providing up to 100Mbit/s bidirectional bit rate per customer over 100m from the distribution point.
The authors report the main results of the EU FP7 SARDANA project, a future network architecture able to provide large bandwidth to the end user in a flexible and intelligent way. The remote amplification for network reach extension, the remote monitoring of the network infrastructure, and the possibility of remotely powering ONUs are fundamental… (More)
