A bi-directional transmission system using low cost Polymer Optical Fibre (POF) to feed the required large number of radio access points in next-generation integrated broadband wireless in-house LANs is proposed. Results from simulations and experiments show that, by tuning system parameters, a large variety of pure microwave carriers exceeding 60 GHz can be generated at the radio access points. Furthermore, the system supports data rates exceeding 100 Mbps using both linear and constant envelope modulation formats such as PSK and x-QAM. The consolidation of costly microwave signal processing equipment at the headend station leads to simpler remote radio access points resulting in system cost savings.
