A hybrid base-station (H-BS) scheme that has the potential to establish intercommunications among neighboring access nodes without sending the signals to the edge node to simultaneously transport wireless and wireline services to integrated access nodes is proposed. As the scheme uses vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers as the light source in the H-BS, it can potentially be realized at low cost without any temperature control. © 2008 IEEE.
