Optical Wireless Hybrid Networks for 5G
The suggested 5th generation (5G) mobile communication features are very much attractive due to their advanced specifications. Starting from the data rates, to the latency, to the overall coverage, in every aspect it is far beyond its predecessor, 4G. In addition to provide all these advanced features, the 5G network will not be completely wireless. Rather it will be a hybrid of both optical and wireless networks. In this paper, we present the main reasons why such a hybrid system is required and also provide its architectures.
