INCIPICT presents Software Defined 5G Converged Access @ ACP2017


Software Defined Mobile Networks and Software Defined Access Networks bring programmability principle into mobile and optical domains. INCIPICT research on 5G Access Network proposes an integrated mobile-optical control approach with the aim of demonstrating advantages in terms of resources utilization efficiency.

A work showing energy efficiency advantages in 5G Software Defined Converged Networks has been carried out in collaboration with Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Italy, and University of Lisbon, Portugal. It has been presented at Asia Communications and Photonics Conference 2017 ( by Andrea Marotta, a Ph.D. student at University of L’Aquila, who is leading this research activity within the INCIPICT project.
