End-to-end optimization of the service and network infrastructure (access, metro, and core, optical and wireless, transport and mobile, cloud and edge). Four main objectives of the group:
- Schemes for on-demand access network resource brokering
- Architecture for end-to-end optical-wireless transport
- Network operating system for unified network control functions and network services
- Design and deployment of the experimental framework to evaluate next generation networks
