Metro-Access and Short Range Systems


Organisation profile

The scope of our activities is driven by the challenges facing the global telecommunication network of the future to cope with the increasing demand for instant, reliable, any time, anywhere and affordable delivery of broadband services directly to the end-user. In the search for solutions to those challenges, we pursue research in topics spanning transparent interfacing between the metropolitan and access area network segments, high capacity access (wavelength division multiplexing –passive optical networks: WDM-PON) technologies, converged signal generation, detection and transport of wireless or wireline signals all the way long from the metro to the indoor (in-home) environment.

The group's ongoing research activities can be grouped along the following tracks:

  • Coherent detection systems supported by DSP techniques and optical sampling for wireless-over-fiber, digital baseband high capacity transmission systems and access applications. A global vision is to strive for universal digital receiver structures.
  • All-optical envelope detection of wireless signals. Consolidation of baseband and wireless signal transport over a common fibre-to-the-customer-premises infrastructure
  • Techniques and technologies for metro-access interfacing nodes
  • Photonic technologies and techniques for high capacity WDM PON systems
  • High capacity short range networking over multimode and polymer fibres for wireless and wireline signals

Our group has attracted researchers from a wide range of cultural backgrounds to create a dynamic and enthusiastic research environment. Our team members have educational and cultural backgrounds from Denmark, Russia, Colombia, South Africa, China, Jamaica, Australia, and The Netherlands.

We foster close cooperation links with other research groups in DTU Fotonik and at other research institutions world wide. Currently, the group has attracted funded research projects from the Danish research council, European Commission 7FP, Danish private foundations and DTU scholarships schemes.
