Abstract

We propose a converged integration of impulse radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) wireless and wired baseband access using a single optical carrier. To optimally share the optical carrier, we employ a novel IR-UWB pulse, which has low power spectral density in the low frequency components (<2GHz);better FCC- mask compliance and higher power efficiency compared to conventional pulses. Using a 10 GHz optical system, we experimentally demonstrate 1.25Gbps (DC-1.25 GHz) wired baseband and 2Gbps of IR-UWB (3.1-10.6 GHz) wireless access over 1km SMF-28 fiber. The concept has potential for converged high-speed wireless and wired access at low cost for inbuilding network applications.
