Abstract
In recent years, the FSO communication systems have attracted significant interest, mainly, due to their numerous advantages and significant improvements, that they provide and they are now expected to be a basic part of the backhaul of the upcoming 5G/5G+ networks. However, severe atmospheric and weather conditions induce limitations to their performance and reduce their effective range. Employing a hybrid FSO/MMW system and relay nodes between the transmitter and the receiver is a way to overcome these limitations. In this work, such a multihop hybrid FSO/MMW system is discussed. The pulse is considered to propagate through a turbulent atmospheric medium with additional effects from pointing errors and a Rayleigh fading MMW channel. The efficiency and reliability of the combined system is studied by extracting the mathematical expression for the total outage probability, accompanied with the appropriate numerical results. © 2019 IEEE.
