Paper Abstract

A low cost converged wireline and 60GHz wireless hybrid system utilizing a single wavelength is proposed, employing two single electrode LiNbO3 modulators for all-optical mm-wave frequency up-conversion and baseband modulation, respectively. Additionally, a novel 15dBi, broadband, coplanar based, photonic patch array antenna is designed on a high dielectric substrate for application as an indoor compact photonic-wireless transceiver. In order to evaluate the fiber-wireless system performance a microwave/optical/wireless design is utilized, employing 3Gb/s orthogonal frequency division multiplexed (OFDM) broadband wireless and passive optical network (PON) signals, co-propagating in a single mode fiber (SMF). An acceptable performance is calculated for a 10m indoor wireless channel and a PON urban link in the order of up to 20km, respectively. At last, a comparison of alternative RoF/PON photonic up conversion schemes is presented.
