Demand for wireless services is increasing rapidly, due to deep penetration of mobile terminals, such as smartphones. Radio spectrum congestion is an important issue, even for conventional mobile services. One of the possible solutions would be to use wired and wireless seamless networks consisting of radio and optical links, where huge data traffic can be offloaded from radio-waves in the air to optical signals over fibres. This paper provides seamless network configurations which can be applied to 90-GHz high-speed wireless links and high-resolution radars. We focus on applications for public transportation systems including airport runways, railways, etc.
