Abstract

In this paper, we propose a dynamic reconfigurable wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) millimeter-waveband radio-over-fiber (RoF) and baseband access network. We also demonstrate dynamic channel allocation capability of millimeter-waveband optical RoF and baseband signals in WDM access network using a supercontinuum (SC) light source, arrayed-waveguide gratings, and a reconfigurable optical crossconnect switch. The dynamic reconfigurable RoF and baseband network architecture is presented and its features are described. Two 155-Mb/s RoF channels and two 2.5-Gb/s baseband channels are effectively generated, transmitted through 25 km of fiber, switched, and then transmitted again through 2 km of fiber and detected with error-free operation (bit error rate $< 10<sup>-9</sup>. The proposed architecture allows the RoF and baseband to coexist and is highly scalable, both in terms of channel counts and access point (AP) counts.
