We present a centrally-controlled indoor network that harnesses data/control plane separation, virtualization of resources, and a high-capacity distribution architecture to achieve interoperability between OWC and competing wireless access technologies. Such a network could potentially support end-to-end delivery of heterogeneous services in the beyond-5G and 6G era.
