—Optical wireless, also known as free-space optics, has received much attention in recent years as a cost-effective, license-free and wide-bandwidth access technique for high data rates applications. The performance of free-space optical (FSO) communication , however, severely suffers from turbulence-induced fading caused by atmospheric conditions. Multiple(More)
—Modern cellular mobile communications systems are characterized by a high degree of capacity. Consequently, they have to serve the maximum possible number of calls while the number of channels per cell is limited. The objective of channel allocation is to assign a required number of channels to each cell such that both efficient frequency spectrum(More)
— In this letter, we investigate the error rate performance of free-space optical (FSO) links over strong turbulence fading channels together with misalignment (pointing error) effects. First, we present a novel closed-form expression for the distribution of a stochastic FSO channel model which takes into account both atmospheric turbulence-induced fading(More)
— In this paper, we study the performance of mul-tihop free-space optical (FSO) wireless systems over turbulence-induced fading channels. The analysis is carried out for systems employing amplify-and-forward (AF) or decode-and-forward (DF) relays and for turbulence channels which can be modeled by the Gamma-Gamma distribution. An exact analytical expression(More)
—The transmission of multiple wireless signals over optical links has attained a great research interest nowadays. In case where optical fibers are difficult to be deployed, or installation cost is prohibited, optical wireless systems provide an efficient alternative means. In this paper, we consider the WiMAX (IEEE802.16) standard and construct a simple(More)
—In this paper, we propose a statistical channel model, named as Double-Weibull, to describe the irradiance fluctuations in moderate and strong turbulence for free-space optical (FSO) systems. The proposed stochastic model is based on the scintillation theory and derived via the product of two Weibull random variables. Closed-form expressions of probability(More)
