We present an analytical model to evaluate the performance of the IEEE 802.11 Distributed Coordination Function (DCF) with and without the RTS/CTS handshake in radio-over-fiber (RoF) wireless LANs. The model captures the effects of contending nodes as well as hidden terminals under non-saturated traffic conditions assuming large buffer sizes. The effect of fiber propagation delay is considered. The proposed models are validated using computer simulations. Comprehensive performance evaluations of RoF networks obtained from the proposed model as well as simulations are presented.
