Abstract

The fifth generation of mobile network (5G) places increased demands on the communication infrastructure, which should be formed in particular by optical networks. Moreover, the use of millimeter-wave (mmW) frequency bands contributes to higher degree of the radio frequency and optical systems convergence. Therefore, we show in this paper the comparison between two wireless seamless connections as part of the radio over fiber (RoF) system, namely free space optical link and mmW wireless link operating at the 5G mmW frequency bands of 27 and 39 GHz. We also demonstrate the impact of including a 10 km of optical fiber to a RoF system with a seamless antenna connection at 27 GHz.
