Markov-modulated continuous time finite Markov chain as the model of hybrid wireless communication channels operation

Problems of the development of hybrid communication systems based on laser and radio wave technologies are discussed. A novel method for assessing the reliability characteristics of such systems, operating in random environment, is presented. The method is based on the theory of Markov- modulated processes. An algorithm of stationary distribution calculation for the systems state probabilities is elaborated. Numerical examples illustrate the suggested approach.
