The PhD candidate will design, develop, and experimentally assess the novel multiband edge node in the B5GOPEN architecture. He/she will numerically and experimentally investigate optical edge node network architectures that are able to interconnect a number of novel optical technologies to be developed in the project such as photonic WDM switches and bandwidth-variable transceivers in order to support the required dynamicity and flexibility. Moreover, in order to enable concepts such as hardware disaggregation and virtualization of the metro node, the PhD candidate will design and implement the required opto-electronic interfaces and controller boards (also with the use of FPGA) to support programmability of the optical technologies developed in the project. In coordination with the software-defined networking (SDN) control plane, the optical nodes need to be able to adapt dynamically to the needs of specific services, optimally exploiting the data plane through the use of relevant data monitoring and analysis schemes developed within the project
MSc degree in electrical engineering, telecommunications, applied physics or computer science; Solid knowledge of optical fiber communications and communication systems; Familiar with optical and electronic laboratory measurement equipment, optical fiber systems and components, semiconductor devices, and electronic circuits; Solid skills in one or two programming languages e.g. OPNET, OMNET, and VHDL, Verilog HDL FPGA programming
