Improving quality of service and energy consumption in wireless-optical broadband access network (WOBAN)

A Wireless-Optical Broadband Access Network (WOBAN) is a hybrid network which is constructed from optical and wireless technologies and therefore, it exhibits the benefits of both the wired and wireless communications. The WOBAN technology has attracted increasing attention for its enormous capacity to meet the exponential growth of traffic load, cost efficiency, scope to support mobility and ease of deployment. WOBAN however, is not fully optimized yet in terms of its power consumption and quality of service, and for future sustainability, it is important to develop new strategies to reduce its power consumption without sacrificing the quality of service that can be achieved through the 4G/5G wireless networks. The aim of this project is to develop new WOBAN technology which will be power efficient and capable of delivering high quality of service.
