Ioannis P. Chochliouros (ichochliouros@oteresearch.gr; ic152369@ote.gr) is a telecommunications electrical engineer. He graduated from the Polytechnic School of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece), and also holds an MSc (DEA) and a PhD from the University Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris VI (France). He worked as a research and teaching assistant in the University Paris VI, in cooperation with other European countries. His practical experience as an engineer has been mainly in telecommunications, as well as in various construction projects in Greece and the wider Balkan area. Since 1997 he has been working at the Competition Department and then as an engineer-consultant of the Chief Technical Officer of OTE (Hellenic Telecommunications Organization S.A.), for regulatory and technical matters. He currently works as the head of the research programs section of the Labs and New Technologies Division. Under his supervision, the section has received several awards by the European Commission, for the successful realization of European research activities. He is author (or co-author) of more than 125 distinct scientific and business works (i.e. books, book chapters, papers, articles, studies, and reports) in the international literature. He has also worked as a lecturer in the Hellenic Academic Sector, in specific areas of modern technologies and/or business and/or regulatory-oriented issues. He has participated in many conferences, workshops, and other events, in most of which as an invited speaker. He is also an active participant of various international and national associations, both of scientific and business nature. George A. Heliotis (gheliotis@oteresearch.gr) is a telecommunications engineer at the Division of Labs and New Technologies (R&D department) of the Hellenic Telecommunications Organization (OTE) S.A. and deputy head of its Access Networks Lab. He graduated from the University of Crete (Greece) with a BSc in physics and also holds an MSc and a PhD in opto-electronics/photonics from Imperial College London (UK). Prior to joining OTE S.A. he held positions in a variety of academic and industrial institutions, where he was mainly engaged on the design, development, and testing of novel opto-electronic devices and systems targeting a wide range of optical communication applications. His current work focuses on the design and evaluation of next-generation access network systems and architectures, mainly involving FTTH and FTTN+VDSL2 implementations. His research interests include photonics devices and systems, all-optical ultrafast networks, FTTx technologies, NGN architectures and services, and xDSL networks. He has participated in several academic and industrial international projects relating to novel optical- and copper-based network systems and infustructures, and has authored or co-authored more than 60 publications in high-profile scientific journals and conferences.
