FMC Tutorial 2015


COMBO consortium has prepared series of tutorial materials related to fixed-mobile convergence (FMC), which were initially presented during tutorial session at IEEE International Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing (HPSR) in Budapest, Hungary in 2015. The session was recorded and later post-processed, so that now everyone is able to gain from the extensive overview of COMBO findings any time.

The tutorial presentations are embedded into an overview of the past efforts, a summary of the state of the art, and a look-ahead for future convergent architectures and functionality. It is covering a  motivation to fixed and mobile convergence, interconnected with an overview of the current state of the art. The convergence process is covered from both a structural convergence perspective, including infrastructure considerations, and a functional convergence point.
