Project Details


METRO-HAUL involves the design and development of a novel, spectrally efficient and adaptive network solution, using dynamic elastic optical networking, including both transparent and flexible optical switching and adaptive transmission. METRO-HAUL will address the granularity mismatch between the wireless access and the optical metro domain via a new edge node design (Figure 1), and achieved through dynamic optical bandwidth allocation. This will provide metro support for increased volume of services with reduced cost and energy consumption.
Alternative titleMETRO High bandwidth, 5G Application-aware optical network, with edge storage, compUte and low Latency
