CHARISMA and 5G-XHaul at the COMBO workshop on CTTE 2015

10 November 2015

The CHARISMA and 5G-Xhaul 5G PPP projects will be present at the COMBO workshop on CTTE 2015.

  • Mr. Theodoros Rokkas will present the case of CHARISMA in terms of converged architecture. CHARISMA brings together 10G-wireless (via mm-wave/60-GHz & free-space optics, FSO) access and 100G fixed optical (OFDM-PON) solutions through an intelligent cloud radio-access-network (C-RAN) and intelligent radio remote head (RRH) platform with IPv6 Trust Node routing featuring very low-latency for the traffic management. Low-cost Ethernet is used across front- and backhaul, and end-user equipment (vCPE), and intelligence distributed across the back-, front-hauls, and perimetric data transports. Ad-hoc mobile device interconnectivities (D2D, D2I, C2C etc.), content delivery network (CDN) and mobile distributed caching (MDC) offer an energy-efficient (better than x20 improvement possible) information-centric networking (ICN) architecture. Furthermore, caching will provide efficient utilization of scarce resources by early aggregating data or/and by executing communication locally.
  • Mr. Egon Schultz will present views on access/aggregation convergence using heterogeneous (optical/wireless) network segments from the 5G-XHaul project. 5G-XHaul aims at building up an ambitious converged optical and wireless network solution that relies on a flexible infrastructure able to support of the backhaul and fronthaul networks required to tackle the current and future challenges that the Radio Access Network (RAN) imposes. 5G-XHaul will provide an efficient, reconfigurable, modular and highly scalable platform to support RAN processing, depending on different architectural solutions, network elements and devices.

About the COMBO project:
COMBO (COnvergence of fixed and Mobile BrOadband access/aggregation networks) is a European Union FP7 ICT Integrated Project, undertaken by 16 partners over a period of three and a half years, starting January 1st, 2013, with over 9 million Euros in funding, of which almost 6 million Euros are funded by the EU. COMBO will propose and investigate new integrated approaches for Fixed / Mobile Converged (FMC) broadband access / aggregation networks for different scenarios (dense urban, urban, rural). The COMBO project and research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) in the ICT area, under grant agreement n° 317762.
