Capacity and Delay Aware Routing in Hybrid Wireless-Optical Broadband Access Network
Source: UC Regents
Hybrid Wireless-Optical Broadband Access Network (WOBAN) optimizes the cost and performance of an access network. The authors design a capacity and delay aware routing scheme, CaDAR, that can support much higher load and has lower system delay than other approaches because of better load balanced routing. A Wireless-Optical Broadband Access Network (WOBAN) is an optimal combination of an optical back end and a wireless front end for an efficient access network. At the back end of the network, Optical Line Terminal (OLT) resides in the Central Office (CO) and is connected via optical fiber to multiple Optical Network Units (ONU). At the front end, a set of wireless nodes (routers) form a wireless mesh network.
