Abstract: A hybrid Radio over Fiber (RoF) system which is compatible with both wired and 90 GHz wireless transmission is proposed in this paper. Baseband and millimeter wave signals are considered as wired and wireless signal respectively. Hybrid signal consisting of wired and wireless signal is generated using a single Dual Drive Mach-Zehnder Modulator (MZM). Using a 10 GHz local oscillator, non-upling (nine times) increase in signal is achieved. As the system uses low frequency local oscillator and a single modulator, overall cost of the system can be reduced considerably. Results obtained show that the system can transmit both wired and wireless signals over a fiber of length 70 km with acceptable bit error rate (BER).
