Abstract

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.
