Invited Talk: Optical Xhaul Network for Ultra-Dense Small Cells

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Driven by an emerging use of flying platforms such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in future cellular networks and the challenges that the 6G networks exhibit, the focus of this talk is to demonstrate the evolution of the flying platforms as a novel architectural enabler for terrestrial radio access networks, e.g., small cells. These flying platforms can use Free Space Optical (FSO) communication to offer high data rate, highly reliable, and resilient fronthaul and backhaul networks. Such vertical optical networks support the ultra-dense deployment of small cells and solving the global connectivity problems in many challenging environments, e.g., backhaul/fronthaul coverage or capacity enhancements for remote areas, social gathering, and disaster affected scenarios, etc.
