Multi-service Digital Radio over Fibre System with Millimetre Wave Bridging
© 2018 IEEE. This paper demonstrates a novel digital radio over fibre (DRoF) architecture that is able to transport multiple compressed digitised RF services using both optical fibre and wireless millimetre wave (mmW) links. This solution has advantages as a cost effective indoor wireless infrastructure where flexible transmission schemes are required. Experimental results indicate wide RF dynamic range for two LTE services transmitted simultaneously, showing its capability for creating a neutral-host radio access network (RAN) with good spectral efficiency and cost effectiveness.
