Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Co-operative Radio over Fibre for Wireless Networks

Acronym: CROWN
Main Objective:
The project activities will encompass the three phases needed for a successful demonstration, i.e:
• Definition of requirements and scenarios;
• Algorithm definition and validation;
• Proof of concept.
The proof of concept will be done at two levels:
At the system level through the integration of the selected algorithms on a network simulator;
At the hardware level, though the development of an FPGA based testing infrastructure complemented by the required Radio-
Frequency (RF) and optical modules, allowing to experimentally show the feasibility of the architecture and algorithms proposed.
The project brings together expertise from the areas of wireless and optical communications, allowing previously untapped synergies
between these two areas, and builds up on the experience of the research team in international projects dealing with Radio over Fibre
