Ultra-wideband radio signals distribution in FTTH networks

By Roberto Llorente, Tiago Alves, Maria Morant, Marta Beltran, Joaquin Perez Soler, Adolfo Cartaxo and Javier Marti


The use of an ultra-wideband (UWB) radio technique is proposed as a viable solution for the distribution of high-definition audio/video content in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks. The approach suitability is demonstrated by the transmission of standards-based UWB signals at 1.25 Gb/s along different FTTH fiber links with 25 km up to 60 km of standard single-mode fiber length in a laboratory experiment. Experimental results suggest that orthogonal frequency-division-multiplexed UWB signals exhibit better transmission performance in FFTH networks than impulse radio UWB signals
