Abstract

An 80MHz, 256-QAM IEEE 802.11ac-compliant WLAN and 9 band 64-QAM LTE-A signals were successfully transmitted over a 50m PMMA GI-POF link. The LTE-A bands were transmitted with radio over POF technique. The WiFi signal was transmitted with an intermediate frequency over POF (IFoPOF) approach due to the POF bandwidth. The IF frequency and the power budget were optimized in order to minimize the EVM penalty induced by the optical link. The total throughput of the LTE-A and WiFi signals were equal to 605 Mb/s and 434Mb/s, respectively. This proves that POF is suitable for multi-standard in-home radio over fiber networks.
