WP1: C-RAN converged network architecture

WP1 will examine the overall network architecture, investigating methods for radio signal transport over different interfaces and mapping of user QoS requirements to queuing and priority mechanisms in wireless (cooperating with WP2) and optical fibre domains.

T1.1 will be carried out by all investigators/researchers, and with input from JDSU, EE, BT and NEC, otherwise WP1 will be undertaken mainly at Kent.

WP1 task list:

T1.1 Overall architecture and use-case scenarios

T1.2 Signal transport over different interfaces

T1.3 Packet filtering definitions and optimisation

T1.4 Converged QoS/priority mechanisms in optical and wireless domains
