Overview

A vision for wireless communications advanced by optical transmission possibilities, showing how this technology provides essential advantages for the implementation of wireless systems

Next Generation Wireless Communications using Radio over Fiber brings together key aspects of wireless, networking and photonics technologies which will be fundamental in achieving the vision of ultra-high-bit-rate mobile access with relatively limited spectrum resource. In particular, the book sets out the significant advantages of wireless communication systems based on distributed antennas with centralized signal processing supported by radio over fiber optical links to enable the required coordinated radio transmission schemes. The radio over fiber network architecture and technology choices, the wireless algorithms that can efficiently and fairly use the available spectrum, together with other considerations, such as network management and the business case proposition are all covered.

The book will be of use to all involved in the research, development or planning of future mobile networks, and of interest to anyone working at the interface of RF and photonic systems or technologies. Although a number of technology options and algorithms are reviewed, the book presents a coherent vision for future wireless/mobile communication systems using distributed antennas from which further investigations can be launched.

Key features:-

  • Presents a single, coherent vision for future wireless systems employing distributed antenna systems, technical feasibility of fiber supported virtual or distributed MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) concepts, from the component technology through to systems
  • Provides key demonstration setups and results validating the concept of the proposed co-ordinated multipoint algorithms
  • Gives a business evaluation, showing the potential economic benefits to operators
