Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate radio-over-fiber transmission over an optical budget of 42dB, using an ultra-low complexity, DSP-free coherent EML+TIA receiver. Its sensitivity enables the wireless integration in filterless, power-splitting wireline networks with budgets beyond NG-PON2 class-E2.
