Abstract
In this paper, we demonstrate an analytical model for computing the end-to-end packet delay of a converged optical/wireless 60 GHz Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) network operating under the medium-transparent MAC (MT-MAC) protocol. For the calculation of the cycle times, this model considers the protocol time consumed for contention and data exchange over both optical and wireless media, a feature of the MT-MAC that effectively enables it to provide direct and seamless interaction between the RoF Centra...
