5G-PHOS is a H2020 5GPPP Phase II project focusing on 5G integrated Fiber-Wireless networks that leverage existing photonic technologies towards implementing a high-density SDN-programmable network architecture. The project has a duration of 3 years, from 01/09/2017 until 31/08/2020, comprising a consortium of 16 partners and coordinated by Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. 5G-PHOS steps into invest in and exploit integrated optical technologies towards enhancing Fiber-Wireless (FiWi) convergence and realizing cost-effective and energy-efficient 5G network solutions for high density use cases. 5G-PHOS is the first coordinated attempt that will draw from existing scientific results in the area of photonics in order to architect 5G networks for dense, ultra-dense and Hot-Spot areas incorporating Photonic Integrated Cirtuits (PICs) in optical mmWave signal generation, DSP-assisted optical transmission, reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexing (ROADM) and optical beamforming functionalities. 5G-PHOS expects to release a seamless, interoperable, RAT-agnostic and SDN-programmable FiWi 5G network that supports 64x64 MIMO antennas in the V-band.

    5G is expected to have an even greater impact on European society than today’s Internet or broadcasting. It promises very high capacity broadband, together with low costs to the consumer, within the next decade. Europe needs to be in the forefront of 5G and ready for the oncoming wave of new services enabled by 5G.
