We experimentally demonstrate the simultaneous radio-over-fibre transmission of an analogue 1-GHz OFDM signal on a mm-wave carrier frequency at 33 GHz and digitized 10 Gb/s data. Single-wavelength transport is supported through an intensity/phase modulation pair and a compact silicon micro-ring resonator, at <1dB penalties.
