Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Fibre Optic Networks for Distributed, Extendible Heterogeneous Radio Architectures and Service Provisioning

Acronym: FUTON
Main Objective: The FUTON project aims to research develop and validate a flexible architecture for wireless systems based on the joint processing of the radio signals from distinct remote antenna units and supported by a transparent fibre infrastructure. This architecture will enable the high bit rates targeted in the broadband component of future wireless systems and provide a framework for the integration of heterogeneous wireless system.
