Baseband Radio over Fiber Aided Millimeter-Wave Distributed Antenna for Optical/Wireless Integration

Thomas, Varghese Antony, Ghafoor, Salman, El-Hajjar, Mohammed and Hanzo, Lajos (2013) Baseband Radio over Fiber Aided Millimeter-Wave Distributed Antenna for Optical/Wireless Integration IEEE Communications Letters, 17, (5), pp. 1012-1015.

Record type: Article


A Baseband Radio Over Fiber (BROF) architecture is proposed, where upto four Radio Frequency (RF) carriers can be generated, while using the heterodyne photo-detection of only two optical signals. This proposed BROF architecture has a star-like structure and it is composed of six Radio Access Units (RAUs), where data is transmitted from the Central Unit (CU) to the Base Station (BS) and from the BS to the RAU over a distance of 20 Km and 0.3 Km, respectively, at a rate of 768 Mbps. The performance of the system supporting four carrier frequencies drops by at most 1dB, at a BER of 10?9, compared to conventional heterodyne photo-detection.
