Review of physical layer networking for optical-wireless integration

Paper Abstract

We present a review of physical networking options and enabling system technologies for efficient unification of optical and wireless access backhaul infrastructure. Different physical layer integration architectures are reviewed in conjunction with the possible wireless signal transport schemes. We also review some of our research work as one possible physical layer integration technique using RF-overlay passive optical network incorporating an optical tandem single sideband (OTSSB) modulation scheme for simultaneous transport of wired and wireless signals.
