Abstract

Radio-over-fiber (RoF) including intermediate frequency-over-fiber (IFoF) technologies have been considered to be one of the effective transmission technologies for the mobile fronthaul (MFH) links in the fifth generation (5G) and beyond- 5G mobile communication systems. In this paper, we explain the concept of a MFH architecture for 5G and the future mobile services featuring cascaded IFoF and RoF links in which the functions of channel extractions and frequency conversions are implemented by the combination of analog and digital signal processing. In addition, we present our experimental results to verify the effectiveness of the cascaded IFoF-based MFH links.
