This paper presents the result of delay bound parameter analysis for hybrid network of IEEE 802.11n Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and optical fiber. This networks use several modulation and coding schemes (MCS) with HTmixed format and distributed coordination function (DCF) access method for data transmission. ACK Timeout and CTS Timeout protocols engineering utilizing short interframe space (SIFS) time interval is used to determine the length of optical fiber extension. This extents the optical fiber lengths 5.96 km for certain condition. In addition, basic access MCS 27–40 MHz scenario produced the lowest delay and highest data rate. These results may support the implementation of big data and cloud computing flexibility
