Abstract: We propose and demonstrate a bidirectional transmission, hybrid wired and wireless access network based on subcarrier modulation (SCM) techniques. The scheme simultaneously enables the dispersion-tolerant transmission of millimeter (mm)-wave signals for use in wireless access networks, downstream baseband signals for optical wired access networks, and optical continuous-wave (CW) carriers for use in upstream data remodulations. Error-free transmissions through a 25-km length of single mode fiber (SMF) for both the downstream baseband and the remodulated upstream signals are confirmed by bit-error-rate (BER) measurements. The dispersion tolerance of the radio-over-fiber (RoF) signal is assessed using numerical simulations. (c) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
