The paper considers level crossing rate (LCR) and average fade duration (AFD) of the product of independent and identically distributed (i.i.d) Nakagami-m (NM) and double NM squared (also known as gamma-gamma) random variables (RVs). The derived statistics are then directly applied to the radio-frequency (RF) - free space optical (FSO), dual-hop (DH), amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying system over non turbulent-induced-fading channels (nTIFCs) and turbulent-induced-fading channels (TIFCs). The obtained results for LCR and AFD of DH-AF, RF-FSO system over TIFCs and nTIFCs are numerically evaluated and graphically presented for various system model parameters.
