ABSTRACT
This paper focuses on next generation ubiquitous networks supporting the future Internet. In this context, it proposes an architecture and an integration framework of wireless and wired network technologies supporting a variety of services with differing service requirements. More specifically the integration of WiMAX wireless broadband access network with an aggregation metro network solution based on optical burst switching (OBS) is discussed and analyzed. A proof-of-concept simulation model realizing the proposed scheme and some preliminary results are also presented.
