Paper Abstract

The paper deals with the results of a propagation study on a fixed hybrid Free Space Optical (FSO) and Radio Frequency (RF) system operating in 850 nm / 58 GHz bands. Propagation models for the availability assessment of both FSO and RF links were examined against a comprehensive database of meteorological attenuation events. The influences of individual hydrometeors were analyzed and the availability performances of the simulated FSO/MMW hybrid link were evaluated. The study pointed out that visibility and rainfall measurements can be only used for the raw assessment of availability performance due to the concurrent occurrence of different attenuation effect.
