Abstract

Even though 60 GHz frequency band has limited coverage, due to the availability of higher bandwidth worldwide (unlicensed, approximately 5 GHz between 57-62 GHz), it is one of the promising candidates for future broadband employing both Fiber and Wireless (Fi-Wi) technology. In this article we briefly explain an in-home radio over fiber (RoF) architecture employing 60 GHz spectrum band. The main challenge for designers of such networks is the additional delay introduced by the optical distribution network. Later in the light of this increased delay, we provide an investigation on the feasibility of applying the IEEE 802.15.3c MAC protocol in such a RoF system at 60 GHz. Mainly, we analyse various ACK mechanisms in the IEEE 802.15.3c when it is used in conjunction with RoF network. The analytical results show that the fiber optic network causes a slight drop in the throughput but it could still be easily used in home networks. This gives us an opportunity to sustain high bandwidth at low cost for home networking, also supporting mobility. Modelling of a RoF system with IEEE 802.15.3c and numerical results thereof are the contributions of this article.
