Abstract

This paper presents a GSM-specific assessment of the performance of a radio over fibre link between a remote antenna unit and GSM base station. The intermodulation distortion (IMD) has been analysed for a system using the subcarrier multiplexing (SCM). A novel technique using direct sequence spread spectrum is proposed to minimize the IMD by decreasing the signal amplitude prior to a direct modulation of a laser diode. The results show that the optical fibre microcellular is outperforming the full wireless system.
