In this thesis, various features of the RoF supported mmW communication for

for MIMO operation, performance analysis of mmW MIMO to achieve spatial

transmission in the 60 GHz-band using multiplexing-over-fibre transport and

A low cost mmW generation system for two independent MIMO signals has been

aspects of experimental analysis on RoF-supported mmW MIMO in this thesis,

understand the amount of improvement in coverage and data rate for a particular

verification of optimum RAU physical spacing for a particular transmission

spacings, required to obtain optimum performance in a mmW MIMO system, can

extended to verification of a method to individual measurement of mmW channel

are relatively static and analysis can be extended to much longer distances and

For mmW multi-user transmission, a novel low cost, low complexity system using

presented and characterized, which was based on large number of RF chains and

of a composite SCM signal, upconversion at the RAU and transmission of different

Leaky-Wave-Antenna (LWA), to convert Frequency Division Multiplexing (FDM)

spacing for the SCM shows the feasibility to serve a large number of users within a

rate of 10Gb/s is shown by serving 20 users simultaneously. Furthermore, investigation on SNR degradation of high bandwidth signals due to beamsteering

number of users is performed, which shows that the proposed system can provide

demonstrated that improvement in coverage and spectral efficiency is obtained by

demonstration of a DWDM-RoF based 60 GHz multi-user transmission using

RAU based system, serving each at distinct optical wavelength and performing

direct photonic upconversion at the RAU for low cost mmW generation.
