Hybrid optical and wireless access

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Optical access networking provisions high bandwidth in order to meet increasing traffic demands of end users. However, the optical solution lacks mobility, and thus limits the last mile penetration. By provisioning mobility, a rather desirable feature, to optical access, hybrid optical and wireless networks are becoming an attractive solution for wireline access network operators to expand their subscriber base [74, 99–101, 128].
