Abstract

This paper investigates hybrid fiber-radio networks for in-building distribution of ultrawideband (UWB) signals, in order to extend UWB radio coverage area. An original multipoint to multipoint UWB-over-fiber system, proposed in the frame of BILBAO project, is presented and discussed. System link gain and noise figure are evaluated through theoretical analysis. A simulation model is used to study the impact of E/O transceivers nonlinearity on UWB signals. Experimental results show good agreement with simulation results. A high data rate file transfer, with UWB radio propagation and transmission over 100 m of multimode fiber, has been also successfully demonstrated.
