Abstract

The experimental demonstration of radio-over-fiber Wimedia-defined OFDM ultrawide band (OFDM-UWB) wireless transmission in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks using standard single-mode fiber with lengths ranging from 25 to 100 km is reported in this paper.The transmission performance of two multichannel UWB configurations, comprising three and five OFDM channels with QPSK and BPSK modulation per carrier respectively, is evaluated. Both configurations transmit 1.56 Gbit/s aggregated bit rate, suitable for integrated optical and wireless high definition video distribution in FTTH networks. The experimental results show that an increased transmission reach can be achieved if the lower number of OFDM-UWB channels at higher bit rate per channel configuration is employed.
