Towards a Seamless Hybrid Communication System

Free registration required

Executive Summary

By synergistically capitalizing emerging communication technologies from both the RF and the optical domains, this paper proposes a hybrid system architecture by leveraging the emerging programmable/cognitive radio technology and free space optical communication. The authors identify some key research issues to enable such a system with high data rate, mobility and ubiquitous coverage, and heterogeneous QoS support. Nowadays, the variety of Radio Frequency (RF) wireless technologies that enable mobility and wireless services, such as WiFi, WiMax, LTE etc. are constrained by limited capacity and RF interference.
