This demo presents an end-to-end hierarchical control of a multi-domain multi-technology integrated fronthaul and backhaul network where a parent controller coordinates the operation of a wireless and optical child controllers managing real wireless and optical data plane resources. The services
offered by this hierarchical control infrastructure are accessed through the offered REST-based northbound API by the resource management application (RMA), which is able to determine the appropriate network resource allocation based on the requested traffic profiles and the position of the different mobile entities deployed in the network. Interestingly, the same REST-based API is used between the parent and child controllers inside the control infrastructure, allowing recursive and scalable deployments. The
RMA manages fronthaul and backhaul traffic generated by a flexible mobile network deployment featuring user equipments, a remote radio head, a baseband unit, an eNodeB, and an EPC.
