Location: LINCS Meeting Room 40


This talk will present the FUTEBOL project, which is a joint EU-Brazilproject focused on the creation of experimental testbeds. Theproject’s goal is to allow the access to advanced experimentalfacilities in Europe and Brazil for research and education across thewireless and optical domains. To accomplish this, we will develop aconverged control framework to support optical/wirelessexperimentation on the federated research infrastructure from allassociated partners/institutions. Further, industry-driven use caseswill be demonstrated using this testbed to produce advances inresearch at the optical/wireless boundary. The talk will provide anoverview of the project, presenting the proposed testbeds as well asthe experiments that we will perform to showcase the importance ofoptical/wireless integration on today’s networks. Those use casesinvolve topics such as C-RAN and radio over fiber and low latencynetworking for real-time applications on IoT and immersive services.
