Project: Reconfigurable Radio over Fiber network – RoFnet

Acronym: RoFnet
Main Objective:
The overall objective of the project is to develop and demonstrate the feasibility of a novel cost effective RoF system architecture that uses the benefits of combining optical networking concepts with fiber radio techniques to efficiently manage the network resource usage and to allow flexible wavelength allocation for the BSs, depending on user requirements and QoS.
To achieve the overall goal of the project we identify the following interim objectives:
-Identification of novel network architectures suited for RoF systems, combining low complexity with flexibility and cost effectiveness;
-To develop and demonstrate the feasibility of a new low cost BS architecture, which uses a RSOA;
-To assess the transmission impairments of wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) systems combined with subcarrier multiplexing and employing optical single side band modulation (OSSB);
-To develop wavelength allocation algorithms able to allocate network resources depending on varying user demand and QoS:
- To liaise with other European projects in order to understand and possibly integrate relevant developments.
