Optical wireless hybrid networks for 5G and beyond communications

by   Mostafa Zaman Chowdhury, et al.

The next 5 th generation (5G) and above ultra-high speed, ultra-low latency, and extremely high reliable communication systems will consist of heterogeneous networks. These heterogeneous networks will consist not only radio frequency (RF) based systems but also optical wireless based systems. Hybrid architectures among different networks is an excellent approach for achieving the required level of service quality. In this paper, we provide the opportunities bring by hybrid systems considering RF as well as optical wireless based communication technologies. We also discuss about the key research direction of hybrid network systems.
