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.
