“Software-defined wired-wireless access network convergence: the SODALES approach” to be presented at IEEE Globecom 2014 Workshop – Wireless optical network convergence in support of cloud architectures

SODALES paper will be presented by Jordi Ferrer Riera at the IEEE Globecom 2014 workshop on Wireless optical network convergence in support of cloud architectures in December 2014. Our paper is entitled “Software-defined wired-wireless access network convergence: the SODALES approach”, and will describe the latest results emerging from the EU FP7 SODALES project.

SODALES co-authors white paper on 5G radio network architecture now published by RAS cluster

Prof. Volker Jungnickel from HHI, who is a partner in the SODALES project, has helped co-author a white paper on “5G Radio Network Architectures” which has now been published in the RAS cluster website at the following URL:

SODALES paper by Volker Jungnickel et al., HHI, Berlin accepted for publication by the IEEE Communications Magazine in the May 2014 edition

The SODALES paper “The Role of Small Cells, Coordinated Multi-point and massive MIMO in 5G” by Volker Jungnickel and co-authors from the Heinrich Hertz Institut, Berlin, has been accepted for publication by the IEEE Communications Magazine in the May 2014 edition.

In SODALES, we have been quantifying the consequences of 5G for mobile backhaul evolution, and we have been developing probably the most flexible mobile backhaul solution discussed today. The paper is also a joint paper with colleagues from the FP7 project METIS, searching for a common understanding towards 5G.

Poster Accepted for the Future Network and MobileSummit (FuNeMS)

SODALES has had a poster accepted for the Future Network and MobileSummit (FuNeMS) 2013 conference that will be taking place in Lisbon, Portugal 3rd-5th July 2013.

Our paper is entitled “Convergent optical-wireless network for ultra-high speed fixed and radio access”.

The authors are: Carlos Bock & Sergi Figuerola (i2CAT), Michael C. Parker & Stuart D. Walker (University of Essex), Victor Marques (Portugal Telecom Inovaçao), Volker Jungnickel & Kai Habel (Heinrich Hertz Institut), and David Levi (Ethernity Networks).

This provides an excellent opportunity for SODALES to showcase its innovative converged wireless-wireline access architecture at the European Commission-sponsored annual conference.

 

4th European Summit on the Future Internet

SODALES project partner Victor Marques (Portugal Telecom Inovaçao) has been invited to take part in a Panel Discussion on Fixed & Wireless Internet Architectures at the 4th European Summit on the Future Internet that is taking place in Aveiro, Portugal on 13-14 June 2013. Victor will also be presenting some initial results emerging from the SODALES project describing recent progress in the design of its ground-breaking active remote node (ARN)-based access architecture for converged wireless-optical high-speed broadband communications.

SODALES invited talk at ICTON

SODALES will be present the initial progress of the project at ICTON (15th International Conference on Transparent Optical Networks), which will take place in Cartagena, Spain, June 23-27, 2013.

The paper that will be presented is entitled as follows:

C. Bock, S. Figuerola, M. C. Parker, S. D. Walker, V. Marques, V. Jungnickel, K. Habel, D. Levi;

“Convergent Radio and Fibre Architectures for High-Speed Access”
