In this paper, two Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols exclusively tailored to WSNs over RoF (RWSNs) namely SPP-MAC (Scheduled Priority Polling Medium Access Control) (polling-based) and HMARS (Hybrid Medium Access Control for Hybrid Radio-over-Fiber Wireless Sensor Network Architecture) (hybrid-based) are proposed. They deal with the main problems in RWSNs i.e. the delay imposed by optical fiber and the existence of two collision domains: the wireless and the fiber optical links. The performance of these two protocols evince their effectiveness for the connection of WSNs by RoF links.
