In this paper we investigate protocol issues that might arise due to the extra fiber propagation delay in fiber-fed IEEE 802.16m networks. Our study indicates that although the fiber delay might affect network performance, an informed choice of protocol parameters, such as the guard times and the ranging channel structure, can minimize the reduction in efficiency and allow for relaxation of some of the constraints imposed on the optical distribution network architecture.
