In this paper, we investigate the level of crosstalk for simultaneous delivery of wired and wireless signals using optical tandem single sideband (OTSSB) transport in an optical-wireless integrated access network. Our results show that the placement of the wired data is crucial to minimize crosstalk resulting from the nonlinear optical frontend. We also propose passive interfaces for the optical-wireless integrated networks incorporating OTSSB. The performance of the interfaces is evaluated in a full-duplex experiment for simultaneous delivery of wired and wireless signals.
