Great progress has been made in the past few years on the development of federated telecommunications research infrastructure in Europe, through the Fed4FIRE program. More recently, the FIBRE project enabled optical fiber interconnection of research facilities in Europe and Brazil. The needs of future telecommunication systems, be it from high data rate applications in smart mobile devices, machine-type communications and the Internet of things (IoT), or backhaul requirements brought about from cell densification, require the co-design of the wireless access and the optical backhaul and backbone. FUTEBOL aimed at developing a converged control framework for experimentation on wireless and optical networks and to deploy this framework in federated research facilities on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
This brochure contains a summary of the experiments that were performed to validate the tools developed and also the results achieved within the FUTEBOL project.
