dc.description.abstractWe demonstrate for the first time an analytical model for computing the saturation throughput of a Medium- Transparent MAC protocol in 60GHz Radio-over-Fiber networks, assuming a finite number of terminals and ideal channel conditions. The model takes into account contention both at the optical and the wireless layer, effectively incorporating the Medium-Transparent MAC mechanism for seamless and dynamic capacity allocation over both optical and wireless transmission media. Based on this model, we provide an extensive saturation throughput performance analysis of the Medium Transparent MAC protocol for various optical capacity availability scenarios and different numbers of wireless users. The theoretical results are found to be in good agreement with respective simulation-based findings, confirming that the employment of Medium Transparent MAC protocols can allow for efficient extended LAN operation of 60 Radio-over-Fiber networks.
