Abstract

In this paper, we first identify the key requirements for the deployment of a 1-Gb/s ultra-broadband home area network (UBB-HAN). Second, we propose an architecture based on a transparent optical backbone feeding local access points. Third, we underline the role of the IEEE802.15.3c pre-standard to provide a suitable radio interface for the UBB-HAN and demonstrate the technical feasibility of the concept using radio over fiber (RoF). More than 1-Gb/s transmission is demonstrated for 50-m optical antenna remoting using radio-over-fiber plus 15-m radio transmission.
