    We propose and experimentally demonstrate a high speed impulse radio ultra wide-band (IR-UWB) wireless link for in-home network signal distribution. The IR-UWB pulse is distributed over a multimode fiber to the transmitter antenna. Wireless transmitted bit-rates of 1 Gbps at 2 m and 2 Gbps at 1.5 m have successfully been demonstrated, with a simple envelope detection scheme. This system is remarkably simple and robust; this makes it very attractive for low-cost applications in short range high-speed wireless links with low radiated power.
