Abstract

Realization of smart grid is a big challenge for not only electrical power grid but also communication network, because real time and highly reliable mission critical communication network based on wireless communications will be indispensable. Furthermore, requirements of wideband communication network for sensing and monitoring utilities and maintenance works are also increasing. To realize future communication network cost-effectively and energy-efficiently, centralized radio access network architecture that use optical fiber based fronthaul network has attracted attention from both academia and industry. In this paper, we propose a design of wireless access network using existing optical..
