Abstract

A single, reconfigurable, digital coherent receiver is proposed and experimentally demonstrated for converged wireless and optical fiber transport. The capacity of reconstructing the full transmitted optical field allows for the demodulation of mixed modulation formats and bit-rates. We performed experimental validation of different modulation formats, including VCSEL based OOK, baseband QPSK, RoF OFDM and wireless IR-UWB over a 78 km deployed fiber link.
