|Description||Fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) has recently gained significant industry momentum with the Broadband Forum defining a new hybrid access network (HAN) architecture that enables converged network operators to offer their Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) subscribers simultaneous use of DSL and 3rd Generation Partnership Project access networks such as Long-Term Evolution (LTE), thus offering enhanced throughput and resiliency. This is particularly important in rural and remote areas where it is technically and economically prohibitive to deploy fiber or use more advanced DSL variants. However, HANs require proper inter-working and new resource allocation algorithms across different access networks in order to achieve optimal performance and efficiency. This research addresses the problem by investigating a new resource allocation framework for the HAN and developing cross-layer optimization techniques to execute efficient resource allocation.
