This webinar will introduce the concept of Power over Fiber (PoF) and potential applications envisioned of that technology in support of 5G networks with optical fronthauling using different types of optical fibers from SMF to MCF with SDM capabilities. It will cover dedicated and shared scenarios showing different tests on ARoF transmission for different modulation formats compliant with 5G New Radio (NR) standard. All as part of works in H2020 BlueSPACE (https://bluespace-5gppp.squarespace.com/news) and TEFLON (http://teflon-cm.es/). Some proposals in the IoT environment will also be shown. It will be an open forum to discuss about the potential of PoF fostering the pending energy efficiency strategy in 5G networks and beyond.
