Abstract
The FUTON project aims to develop and validate a fibre based infrastructure for transparently interconnecting multiple remote antennas to a central location, exploiting the merits of the joint processing of radio signals. This paper overviews the objectives of the FUTON project, describing its concept and its main challenges.
