    This paper provides a description of key results stemming from experiments conducted at the wireless/optical boundary. The main aim is to show the advantages of a converged optical/wireless network deployment, which uses very recent technologies like SDN, Virtualization, fog and cloud computing, and Radio-over fiber. The results are mainly taken out of an international collaborative research project called FUTEBOL (Federated Union of Telecommunications Research Facilities for an EU Brazil Open Laboratory).
