8 January 1996 Fiber optics as an rf transmission medium in cellular telephone systems
Author Affiliations +
Fiber optics has become an important medium in the development of worldwide cellular system microcell and remote antenna applications. Several products are available which take advantage of single mode 1310 and 1550 nm fiber optic transmission and its low loss and relative ease of installation. This paper presents a brief history of RF transmission technology, summarizes the technical aspects of the RF to light conversion, and describes the Allen Telecom fiber-based microcell and active antenna products while presenting examples of applications.
