Abstract

One of the most important announced assets of the forthcoming 5G network is the capability to merge different technologies in an overarching much more effective telecommunication system. At the verge of 5G deployment, it's therefore key to have the right means to test and pre-develop the integration of two main pillars of 5G, i.e. wireless and optical systems. The target of this paper is to discuss some interesting aspects of performing experiments at the wireless-optical boundary, focusing on the activities of the EU-Brazil funded research project FUTEBOL.
