Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) has been employed in network infrastructures due to its large capacity, low attenuation, low operational cost and enlarged network coverage. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) has also been broadly deployed. The integration of these two powerful technologies leads to new infrastructures. In this work, we introduce new approach for integrating of RoF and WSNs, and present HMARS, a MAC protocol proposed exclusively for this new type of integration. Our results indicate that HMARS performs considerable better than others MAC protocols in this integration.
