By combining the capacity of optical fiber networks with the ubiquity and mobility of wireless networks, FiWi networks form a powerful platform for the support and creation of emerging as well as future unforeseen applications and services, e. FiWi networks hold great promise to change the way we live and work by replacing commuting with teleworking. This not only provides more time for professional and personal activities for corporate and our own personal benefit, but also helps reduce fuel consumption and protect the environment, issues that are becoming increasingly important in our lives. The research work project will not only be restricted to the above mentioned research areas, but also covers all related research areas on the future bimodal communications provided by FiWi broadband access networks.

Fiber-Wireless (FiWi) Broadband Access Networks in an Age of Convergence: Past, Present, and Future
Furthermore, we discuss service, application, business, and operation related aspects, which motivate access technology to move into a substantially different direction in the long run than continued capacity provisioning. Given that most 4G cellular mobile network researches so far have been focusing on the achievable performance gains in the wireless front-end only without looking into the details of backhaul implementations and possible backhaul bottlenecks, we identify open key research challenges for FiWi broadband access networks. According to the Federal Communications Commission FCC , broadband enables individuals and enterprises to access a wide range of resources, services, and products related to education, culture, entertainment, telemedicine, e-commerce, public safety, and homeland security. In a detailed study carried out by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD [ 1 ] it was shown that the impact of providing residential and business subscribers with broadband access is manifold. Among others, broadband enables the emergence of business models, processes, and inventions as well as improved goods and services. Furthermore, broadband increases competitiveness and flexibility in the economy by the increased diffusion of information at lower cost and by improving market access to increasingly larger markets.
