Abstract

The Time Shared Optical Network (TSON) has been proposed as a dynamic optical transport network solution to provide high bandwidth and low latency connectivity in support of 5G technology and beyond. This work reviews the TSON evolution stages developed in the framework of the UK national project TOUCAN. The details of the TSON architecture and its various development phases will be discussed, while the performance of its latest implementation will be evaluated through relevant demonstration activities across the 5GUK test network.
