Title: “Coordinated fibre and wireless spectrum allocation in SDN-controlled wireless-optical-cloud converged architecture”,

Abstract: We provide an experimental demonstration of LTE multi-cell resource allocation in a converged LTE-over-PON architecture for the slicing of virtual network operators. Our SDN controller dynamically adjusts the wireless bandwidth of each cell, according to their demand, jointly with their fronthaul rate and reserved PON capacity.
