Om boka

This book investigates new enabling technologies for Fi-Wi convergence. The editors discuss Fi-Wi technologies at the three major network levels involved in the path towards convergence: system level, network architecture level, and network management level. The main topics will be: a. At system level: Radio over Fiber (digitalized vs. analogic, standardization, E-band and beyond) and 5G wireless technologies; b. Network architecture level: NGPON, WDM-PON, BBU Hotelling, Cloud Radio Access Networks (C-RANs), HetNets. c. Network management level: SDN for convergence, Next-generation Point-of-Presence, Wi-Fi LTE Handover, Cooperative MultiPoint.

Om forfatteren

Dr. Massimo Tornatore is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electronics and Information in Politecnico di Milano, Italy and an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of California, Davis. Since late 2000, member of the Broadband Optical Networks, Security & Advanced Internet Lab (Bonsai Group) in Politecnico di Milano. In 2002, I was a research associate in Corecom, and I worked in collaboration with PSTS (Pirelly Submarine Telecom Systems) and TILAB (Telecom Italia Labs). I received a Ph.D. in Information Engineering in May 2006. From 2007 to 2009, I was a post-doc researcher in the Computer Science Department at the University of California, Davis. In January 2010, I started my career as a faculty in Politecnico di Milano. I co-authored about 190 conference and journal papers and my research interests include design, energy efficiency, and survivability in optical networks and group communication security. You can find more information in my research page or by reading one of my papers.
