Paper Abstract

Small-cell and cloud-RAN systems along with the use of the millimeter-wave band have been considered as promising solutions to meet the capacity demand of the future wireless access networks. Radio over Multimode fibers (RoMMF) can play a role in the integrated optical-wireless access systems for next-generation wireless communications, mainly in within-building environments. The numerical results show the effectiveness of MMF to transmit at 60 GHz band with 7- GHz bandwidth for different link lengths and refractive index profiles under restricted mode launching and using narrow linewidth sources. The integration with optically powered remote antenna units is also proposed based on the large core effective area of MMF. Temperature impairments and graded index plastic optical fiber transmission are also discussed.
