Paper Abstract

Recently, service-providers network is gradually transforming/migrating into the Next Generation Network. This transformation/migration has been driven by the future services convergence and expected broadband traffic growth with all-IP network. Significant proportion of the large traffic volume of coming years will be carried by wireless access network technologies such as 3G cellular mobile, WiFi, and WiMAX. In this scenario, wireless network and optical network cannot be architected as simple overlay to obtain maximum efficiency. In this paper, we are proposing integration of the benefit of both technologies to realize future proof broadband Optical/Wireless converged network. We will also discuss on the optical edge node architectures.
