Impact of Dispersion-Induced Second-Order Distortion in Multi-IFoF-based Mobile Fronthaul Link for C-RAN


We investigate effects of second-order distortion induced by chirp and dispersion in multi-IFoF-based mobile fronthaul links. We optimize frequency plan avoiding distortion, and successfully transmit multiple LTE-A signals over 60-km SMF without any dispersion compensation.
