We experimentally demonstrate the transparent conversion of an OFDM signal in the Ka-band (35GHz) to a sub-6GHz frequency, using an EML+TIA coherent receiver. We further prove sideband-suppressed reception for this simplified receiver through confirming dispersion-tolerant mm-wave transmission, in contrast to direct-detection with RF down-conversion.
