ABSTRACT We demonstrate the first full-duplex wireless-over-fibre transmission between a central station and a CWDM ring architecture with remote 40 GHz LO delivery using a bi-directional semiconductor optical amplifier.

    ABSTRACT: We carry out feasibility study on future wireless-over-fibre systems that operate in the millimetre-wave range (>20 GHz) and capable of delivering at least 1 Gbit/s wireless data to fixed or mobile customer units distributed in an urban environment. For that purpose, we propose to use a star (for indoor) and a star-tree (for outdoor) topology optical network for distributing wireless signals at Intermediate Frequency (IF) over single-mode fibre in the 1550-nm optical window.
