Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) and Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) receive a lot of attention recently because of the cost decrease and the performance improvement that they represent for telecommunications’ operators. In this paper, a fixed/mobile convergent architecture is introduced based on the integration of fronthaul links with fiber access infrastructure and central office assets. Tests have been performed on a wireline business service and an LTE fronthaul link measuring performances in terms of Ethernet frame loss, BER and jitter on the CPRI protocol data transport and finally EVM and frequency accuracy on the LTE signal.
