Paper Abstract

This invited paper discusses the potential of the Intermediate Frequency-over-Fiber (IFoF) technology for future mobile fronthaul links. First, we explain the fundamental of IFoF and its advantages over the conventional digital-based schemes such as Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) from the point view of centralized radio access network (C-RAN) architecture. Then, our recent results including the experimental demonstration of the 1-Tb/s CPRI-equivalent-rate transmission with a transmitter composed of parallel intensity/phase (IM/PM) modulators are presented.
