  QoS and QoE    
  • Mechanisms of QoS in access network;
  • Comparing access technology with aspect of QoS;
  • Quality of Experience (QoE): focus on the end-user, How to measure & handle it, How to take it into account in the design and operation/management of the next-generation optical access;
  • QoE and Fairness; Is the final bandwidth distribution fair enough? Challenges and solutions.
  • New services: 3DTV, interactive TV, monitoring of home, security, remote controle over FOAN links, robotics ..
  • New applications: GSM, LTE, business services, sensoring, monitoring, new home aplications...
  • Clean-slate aproach in optical access networks.
We recommend  
   • Special Issue on FTTx
