A reinterpretation of the classic definition of fractional Brownian motion leads to a new definition involving a fractional noise obtained as a fractional derivative of white noise. To obtain this fractional noise, two sets of fractional derivatives are considered: a) the forward and backward and b) the central derivatives. For these derivatives the autocorrelation functions of the corresponding fractional noises have the same representations. The obtained results are used to define and propose a new simulation procedure.
