Description

5G-XHaul proposes a converged optical and wireless network solution able to flexibly connect Small Cells to the core network. Exploiting user mobility, our solution allows the dynamic allocation of network resources to predicted and actual hotspots. To support these novel concepts, we will develop:

The well balanced 5G-XHaul consortium of industrial and research partners with unique expertise and skills across the constituent domains of communication systems and networks will create impact through:

- Developing novel converged optical/wireless architectures and network management algorithms for mobile scenarios;
- Introduce advanced mm-Wave and optical transceivers and control functions;
- Support the development of international standards through technical and techno-economic contributions.
