For in-building communication, a powerful backbone network can be created by means of optical fibre, which in a single infrastructure can offer a wealth of both fixed and wireless service connections to the users. Next to the technological challenges, important aspects to be taken into account are the economics of network installation and operation, and sustainability. An overview is given of recent research results regarding the optimization of network architectures, and regarding advanced signal processing for economical and sustainable delivery of high-capacity wired and wireless services over various types of multimode (plastic) optical fibre.
