The increase in the use of information and communication technology
(ICT) has pushed the existing access networks to their limits. Whole
new access networks are currently being deployed and are expected to
take full advantage of the already started synergy of services
converging on to one network. Through a brief survey of synergy and
technology trends, it is concluded that a future network will
complementary use of wired and wireless technologies. In this context
the paper proposes a framework for planning of unified wired and
wireless ICT infrastructures. The framework includes different input
parameters of relevance for the planning and implementation, which
also include a step-wise implementation plan. Planning methods for
wired and wireless planning is presented and a simplified large-scale
case study is conducted to verify and illustrate the use of the
