Abstract
This paper proposes a novel Ethernet-based wired/wireless broadband access networking architecture that utilizes the existing wired trunk feeder fiber of typical PON infrastructure along with a hybrid FSO/RF reliable wireless connectivity to the end-users. By combining the benefits of both FSO and RF technologies, the proposed integrated networking solution can provide a downstream bandwidth of up to 2.5 Gbps per wavelength and 99.999% availability at a range of 1 km in all weather conditions [2]. All the previous work on hybrid FSO/RF was based on point to point, our proposed architecture is unique in the sense of providing point to multipoint access to end users and bringing all wired/wireless network in to single network, which is transparent to the users.
