The expected high demand of two-way fixed and mobile wireless services, the consequent need of expanding the systems capacity, and the urgency of reducing the costs, has created an opportunity for the utilization of the proposed photonic transport in wireless networks. System demonstrations1–3 and architectural developments4 have been proposed for distribution of communication services over fiber. Termed Fiber Radio and Hybrid Fiber Wireless, these systems offer the potential to improve services and reduce base station costs through increased bandwidth and easy of installation. Motorola BCS has developed and demonstrated a DWDM broadband photonic transport able to meet the requirements for IS-95 Personal Communications Services (PCS) operating at 1.9 GHz, and Broadband Wireless Access operating over the band Multi-channel Multi-point Distribution System (MMDS) band of 2.5 to 2.7 GHz.
