Abstract

We demonstrated the simultaneous transmission of a multiband 4G (i.e. LTE-A) and gigabit/s baseband signals over 35m of 1mm core diameter PMMA GI and SI POFs. The transceiver consists of a Fabry-Perot 650nm laser diode and p-i-n photodiode. The LTE-A was transmitted with Analog-RoF technique, using a simple equalisation method. 12 LTE-A bands and a 1.9Gb/s 4-PAM baseband signal were co-transmitted over the GI-POF. 7 LTE-A bands and a 1.7Gb/s 4-PAM signal were co-transmitted over the SI-POF. The equalisation technique showed to be an effective method to increase the link throughput, hence enabling POF to be an excellent candidate for an in-home network infrastructure.
