In this paper we present an application of the Fixed Mobile Convergence approach developed in the EU COMBO project for the seamless delivery of fixed and mobile services using a common network infrastructure and set of functions. In particular, we apply this approach within a convergent multilayer packet-optical aggregation network in order to provide QoS support to the transport of packet services regardless of the access technology. As a proof of concept of our approach, we developed a Fixed Mobile Convergence testbed that integrates the LTE-EPC LENA emulator and the multi-layer ADRENALINE testbed. We describe and experimentally validate how this integration is done on the data plane to provide the end-to-end transport of LTE mobile services through the packet-optical aggregation network.
