Paper Abstract

Optical fibre transmission has enabled greatly increased transmission rates, with 10 Gb/s common in local area networks. End users find wireless access highly convenient, however limited spectrum availability at microwave frequencies results in per-user transmission rates which are limited to much lower values, 500 Mb/s for 5 GHz band IEEE 802.11ac, for example. Extending the high data-rate capacity of optical fibre transmission to wireless devices, requires greatly increased carrier frequencies. This paper will describe how photonic techniques can enable ultra-high capacity wireless data distribution and transmission using signals at millimetre-wave and TeraHertz (THz) frequencies.
