Abstract
Access infrastructures combining fiber optic and wireless technologies can provide the necessary broadband access required by the convergence of wireless and wired networks. In this paper we discuss a mm-wave radio over fiber (RoF) optical access network architecture, which combines radio subcarrier multiplexing techniques to improve system efficiency with fiber dispersion mitigation provided by optical single sideband modulation techniques. The RoF access network is discussed and analyzed through simulation.
