Users of tele-information services are demanding instant access, everywhere and anytime.
Wireless communication systems offers mobility and flexibility while optical fiber based systems
offer large bandwidth, secure and lower power consumption for transport of tele-communication
signals. None of the two technologies separately can satisfy the demands of user for ubiquitous
and affordable access to information services. Converged optical and wireless systems offer a
solution that combines the best of both technologies. This article review the trends in converged
optical-wireless communication systems and outline the role that photonic technologies is
playing in making the vision of a converged network a reality.
Key words: Optical Communication, Access Networks, Wireless Communications,
Communication Networks.
