Abstract

The use of standard 1-mm SI-POF has been so far mainly limited to distances below 100 meters and low bitrates, of the order of 100 Mbps. The EU project POF-ALL is currently investigating on how to extend these limits in terms of both increased reach and/or higher bit-rates. Among the different technical solutions addressed inside POFALL, a very interesting one is based on the use of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) directly applied to optical links based on POF. This paper presents a theoretical introduction to OFDM over POF, then shows two very interesting recent experimental results, one showing 100 Mbit/s over 200m using commercially available VDSL chips, another demonstrating 1 Gbit/s over 100 m using lasers, and 1 Gbit/s over 25 m using RC-LED..
