2006 (English)In: IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, ISSN 1041-1135, E-ISSN 1941-0174, Vol. 18, no 04-jan, 406-408 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The simultaneous wireline (600 MHz) and wireless (5.5 GHz) transmission of data over cable service interface specification (DOCSIS) signals in a hybrid fiber-radio access network is presented. The DOCSIS signal wireless replica is generated by means of an optical harmonic up-conversion technique based on a dual-drive Mach-Zehnder modulator. The optical signal is fed to a base station (BS) where a packaged asymmetric Fabry-Perot modulator/detector acts simultaneously as a photodetector and an optical modulator. At the BS, the DOCSIS signals can be fed either to a wireline or a wireless access network, in a highly flexible approach. Full-duplex operation has been demonstrated for both access types, including indoor wireless transmission.
