Abstract

The effects of optical losses on a directly-modulated radio-over-fiber (RoF) system used for distributed antenna networks are determined. The results show that with a properly designed bidirectional amplifier, the RoF link can tolerate over 20 and 16 dB of optical losses for down- and up-links, respectively. Simulation results are also consistent with the experimental data. These findings can contribute to the design of RoF distributed antenna systems with different topologies.
