Some of the work carried out within the European integrated project Integrated Photonic mm-Wave Functions for Broadband Connectivity (IPHOBAC) on the development of photonic components and radio-over-fiber technologies for broadband wireless communication is reviewed. In detail, 60 GHz outdoor radio systems for >10 Gbits/s and 60 GHz indoor wireless systems offering >1 Gbit/s wireless transmission speeds are reported. The wireless transmission of uncompressed high-definition TV signals using the 60 GHz band is also demonstrated.
