Radio technologies for 5G using Advanced Photonic Infrastructure for Dense user environments

In RAPID, we propose to use a centralized radio access network (C-RAN) architecture to support high-capacity heterogeneous (3G, 4G and 60 GHz) radio access technologies through low-cost, but ultra-high-bandwidth photonic techniques for the fibre distribution.
