In recent times, usage of fixed wireless access (FWA) is gaining momentum even though fiber based existing services such as fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) are widely used for home Internet applications. We explore a time-division multiplexing passive optical network (TDM-PON) and long term evolution advanced (LTE-A) based cost-efficient access network planning strategy for combined usage of FWA and FTTH with the same network infrastructure. The proposed fiber-wireless (FiWi) access network satisfies all feasibility constraints and users’ quality of service (QoS) requirements. The proposed planning method judiciously identifies the network architecture and user service mode (FWA/FTTH).
