This paper investigates the performance of the IEEE 802.16e Medium Access Control (MAC) in 802.16e Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) networks, in terms of MAC Data Rate (MDR). It is shown that the accommodation of the extra propagation delay induced by the optical fiber links increases the protocol overheads and reduces the protocol's efficiency.
